Contemporary Jazz is sometimes wrongly regarded as a kind of music that is rooted into the past or, even worse, as a genre that where the musicians can’t do anything more thanreiterate the usual basic patterns, above which some technically gifted artist improvises through articulated scales and advanced techniques. Lovers of this music, and in particular those who have also the opportunity to deal with other different genres, know which is the reality. Very often is in the world of Jazz that we find those musical seeds, the gems of innovation, that grow with time – maybe along lines which were impossible to predict at the beginning – to generate their fruits in contexts that can be even very distant from the point of origin.
FORWARD THINKING JAZZ is a new playlist that was created to celebrate the artists and the songs that more than others bring inside the elements of musical innovation. This is the kind of Jazz that has the potential to leave the most profound mark into the world of music. The playlist is launched with a first set of eleven songs, all released in the last few months, for an initial duration of about 1 hour. But stay tuned and keep following the playlist because new innovative Jazz tracks will be added very frequently to the initial list. Most important, however, be assured that you’ll find here always the best Jazz as soon as it’s released.
