Recently added to the music library

In a past post I attributed my love of Jazz to my paternal Grandfather. He was a Jazz fan too. I recall every Sunday he’d have the radio tuned to a local Jazz station. He’s been gone for 25 years but he had one hell of an impact on my musical tastes.

So new  artists added to my library:

Pat Metheney

Dizzy Gillespie

Spyro Gyra

Bob James

The latter by Bob James famous for the theme music for the TV series Taxi – the track is called Angela. I also got his Nautilus track too.

Spyro Gyra – is a jazz with a Caribbean and Brazilian beat. Very nice.

Dizzy Gillespie – Swing Low Sweet Cadillac is awesome.

Pat Metheney  of course I consider as  Jazz musician heavily influence by African music.

Common – I’ve got a few of his tracks. Not jazz per say, more hip hop but makes liberal sampling of Jazz music.
