Beautiful Music Volume One – DJ Bopstar

12 05 2009

A beginner’s guide to jazz. That’s what DJ Bopstar offers in his Beautiful Music Volume One podcast. Jazz is like wine. If you can look past the ‘highbrowness’ of jazz (and wine) a whole universe of flavors, aromas and meaning opens up. Listen, download, unwind. Cheers.
