CapRadio's jazz hosts (  Gary G. Vercelli   Avery Jeffry   Andrew Mills ) spend their days immersed in jazz music from all over the world. Each month, they pull together some of their favorite tracks that they can't get enough of each month. This month, they're featuring tributes as well as exciting takes on a few old classics. The list includes;

Andrew Mills - I'm starting off 2020 by going back to the beginning. We all have those certain recordings that first piqued our interest in jazz and set us on a lifelong journey of music discovery. What follows are three beautiful ballads that I first heard as a teenager and derive just as much joy and inspiration from now as I did then.

"Naima" – John Coltrane - For me, this is the prettiest piece of music John Coltrane ever produced. It's also the first piece of music that opened my ears to the infinite harmonic possibilities that exist in jazz music. Coltrane's use of pedal tones underneath rich, complex chords make the perfect accompaniment to his beautiful, sustaining melody. It's stunning and opened a completely new musical world for me.
