Από τον Θοδωρή Φαχουρίδη

 

Ένας αιώνας ηχογραφήσεων που απογειώνουν μυαλό και σώμα σε ένα από τα πιο μεθυστικά μουσικά ταξίδια που μπορεί να υπάρξουν. Jazz age, standards, swing, bebop, cool jazz, free jazz, hard bop, fusion, jazz funk, smooth jazz, latin jazz και δεκάδες ενδιάμεσες μουσικές προτάσεις. Η διαδρομή που ακολουθεί η παρακάτω λίστα είναι μόνο μία από τις χιλιάδες που μπορεί να επιλέξει κάποιος. Ένα είναι σίγουρο όμως, when jazz speaks the world listens…
