This started when I simply started to add my favorite Spanish jazz albums into a playlist for personal listening. I started to search for musicians I know personally from the Madrid scene and other national artists I admire, ranging from all-time greats like Pedro Iturralde and Tete Montoliu, world-class musicians Chano Dominguez, Jorge Rossy, Jorge Pardo and alike to lesser known local secret weapons like our humble band. I soon got over 1000 tunes thrown together. That’s the moment when I realized that this was huge. There’s so much fabulous material out there and the list of new releases is growing on a daily basis. I definitely can’t do this alone.
Here’s where you come into the scene! It is what Spotify calls a public “collaborative playlist”. Just go to the playlist here and drag in those albums you think I left out. If we all combine all our effort and spread the word the whole scene benefits! Let’s enjoy together all the terrific jazz that’s out here in Spain and let others know!
