Drops of Ancient Melodies: the beauty of classical architectures in Contemporary Jazz

A few days ago I was listening to The Invariant, the very nice last work by Benedikt Jahnel Trio, and I starten to think about how many beautiful Jazz works, even if not explicitly re-doing classical songs, are unequivocally and explicitly inspired by classical tradition.

The playlist I share with you today includes some of the most delicate and classical inspired pieces that I enjoyed in the last few years. This selection includes artists such as Benedikt Jahnel, Gwilym Simcock, Yuri Goloubev, Michael Wollny, Iiro Rantala and Aaron Goldberg.
