MIX NO. 30: Beauty & The Unpromising Beginning

My first mix for UK Vibe (#26: “You Go Your Way… and I’ll Go Mine”) very much expressed my passion for what I deem out-of-the-box, contemporary jazz compositions, and this mix is absolutely the extension of that. Hour 1 delivers some wonderful progressive and forward-thinking selections while hour 2 aims to push through any preconceived notions of what jazz is in the 21st century. Imran Mirza
