Podcast 32 - Assorted Jazz Masters Go Mellow

Christmas comes early for all my podcast listeners.  As promised, we have a distinct change of pace for this episode.  It has been too long since I have let the virtuosity of jazz masters shine through on the podcast.  That was the general drive behind this mix with the added constraint that I wanted to keep things on the mellower side.  That took a bit of effort since I have a tendency in all genres of music I listen to, if you haven't noticed, to find the most driving songs.  This leads to a lot of uptempo stuff like bluegrass or drum and bass.  That's not to say I don't like the slow stuff, quite the contrary really but it's gotta be just right.  So with that in mind, here is collection of Goldilocks tracks for your listening enjoyment.  Well and I should say, I really tried to keep it all mellow but there might be a little spark here and there.  I didn't want yall falling asleep.

Thanks for listening, merry Christmas, happy new year, and don't forget to support the artists,
