Jazz Pianos November Mix By DJ Ian Head (Download)

November 3, 2010


Once again DJ Ian Head delivers a welcomed interruption to our automatic listening habits. Ian’s November 2010 mix entitled Jazz Pianos serves up a number of the original jazz piano masters including Herbie Hancock, Ahmad Jamal, McCoy Tyner, Junior Mance, Monty Alexander, and Oscar Peterson.

Anyway – here’s a couple cuts for folks to warm up to as the weather cools off. There’s only a little solo piano – these are just songs that I feel are “driven” mainly by the piano, even in the case that it’s on an artist’s record who isn’t a pianist, like Yusef Lateef.

FYI Everyone – there was a tech glitch initially that wasn’t letting people download the entire mix. I fixed it and the full, 40 minute mix is now available for download / stream.

Thanks again to Semantik for posting!

goooooooood mix Ian!!! i love this. Question though: is it frowned upon if a producer samples a dj mix???

thanks man…personally, as a record nerd and someone who loves tracking down and digging up vinyl, i don’t understand sampling mp3s, especially mixes. i got into a lot of music by listening to cats like rob swift’s mixtapes, and then tracking down the records and samples used, which in turn put me on to other great artists and albums. when i sample, it’s strictly from wax because i just love that rich sound, and the connection to the adventure of digging and learning about past music.

all that being said, this is hip-hop, where the number one rule is innovation, and this is also a different, digital era. so i think you should try and make dope music however you feel works best!
