Weekend music mix [5]


April is Jazz Appreciation month and I asked Jazz aficionado and Dj, David Njuki, to help me out with this week’s playlist.

He had this to say about the playlist:

“The selected playlist barely scratches the surface of what jazz is. A question that most people tend to ask and is a bit hard to answer.

I have selected some of the most famous “traditional” (sometimes referred to as classic jazz) jazz. All the songs on the playlist have been done over and over again by countless number of artists and4, they have somehow set a benchmark for this kind of music. The musicians in the playlist are huge names in the Jazz world and that’s why I decided to start there. I hope that this serves as a good start.”


Billie Holiday – Fine and Mellow

Ella fitzgerald – Mack The Knife
