Is It Warm Enough For You?

I just got back from Arizona where it was 115 degrees, a dry heat as they say. Well, that is too hot for me. I just need some cool jazz so I can get some relief and relax. Now, not all the tracks fit into the cool jazz genre, but they are "cool" jazz tracks none the less. There is a wide variety in the mix from the Italian trumpeter Enrico Rava to the hard bop trombonist Curtis Fuller. I particularly enjoyed the track from flautist Bradley Leighton. Click here to listen.

1. Lover Man - Gene Bertoncini and Jack Wilkins
2. Mojave - Bradley Leighton
3. Blue Lights - Clifford Jordan/John Gilmore
4. Mystere - Enrico Rava
5. Where Are You - Sonny Rollins
6. Blue Yes - Chucho Valdes
7. Bahia - Johnny Griffin and Eddie 'Lockjaw' Davis
8. Temple Court - Ahmad Jamal
9. On Wings Of Song - Wayne Shorter
10. Blues-ette - Curtis Fuller"

Boy can you pick them. Diverse in time and instrumentation, and all decidedly cool without falling into the cheese.

One of my long-term projects is a playlist featuring people with the most fantastic names in music history. Chucho Valdes is right at the top of that list.
