DJ Rahdu – Some Jazz 25

I’m preparing for my Jazz gig this Thursday and felt compelled to record some of my practice for the first Some Jazz since May. I’m surprised I’m 25 eps in but, this is just a testament to how much great Jazz music is out there. A lotta usual suspects on this one, some newfound treats..
