The Listening Suite – A Jazz Primer


Time_out_album_coverHappy New Year and welcome to the January 2015 Edition of The Listening Suite! For the first podcast of the new year, I wanted to share a special jazz playlist. I’m calling it a ‘jazz primer’, if you will – filled with jazz classics.

Many thanks to Ray Garraud of The Garraud Files for providing the “new” intro for The Listening Suite. I’d also like to give a special thanks to Felicia Hodges of Tigerlily Communications, who has been keeping me on task with the podcast, which will now be published by the second Saturday of each month! You’ll be hearing more about Felicia in the near future!

So grab a seat, get comfortable and let’s go. Enjoy!
