SPOTIFY PLAYLISTS FROM THE JAZZ CENTRE UK

JAZZ THROUGH THE DECADES

Jazz Music has continuously developed since its birth just before the turn of the twentieth century. Our Trustees board have put together (what they consider) ten essential jazz tracks for every one of the music’s decade starting from the 1920s to help acquaint newcomers to the rich heritage of the music and on a single page give a taste of what jazz music is all about. We have put a sample of the 1920s playlist on the page to get you started followed by button links to each decade.

As this list is purely introductory it is possible that your favourite Jazz musician is not listed within these playlists. Choosing 10 tracks for each decade is a difficult task showing: popular records, great examples of musicianship and that we consider a diverse range of artists and sub-genres. 

We have plenty more playlists available over on our Spotify profile and aim to release more on a regular basis. Ensure to follow our page whilst you are there to get all the latest updates.

We hope you enjoy listening to our selection.
