The Jazz mixtape #001

Notes about update #001 of The Jazz mixtape.

RIP Alphonse Mouzon. He was one of the great fusion drummers. He was a member of the early Weather Report and performed on the legendary first album. After that he started a solo career. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 1995. Mind Transplant is an album he recorded in 1974 for blue note.

Weather Reports first self titled debut album was released 1971. They were a true super group with Joe Zawinul and Wayne Shorter as founding members. Many tracks have a ambient feel to it with very little progress and beautiful slow soprano saxophone melodies.

Also, Thelonious Monk and new albums with Dungen, Ethan Iverson and Bugge Wesseltoft.
