A Real Rhapsody playlist blog of questionable quality

Wrote It Myself Playlist

When I open up the Rhapsody music guide page for a jazz artist for the first time, I find it easiest to get into their versions of those standards I already know and love. The prism they bend that classic chart through will undoubtedly display the personality and style of the musician.

The real reflection of a jazz musician's artistic heart, though, lies in their own compositions. Here's a playlist of self-written tracks by jazz musicians not widely heralded for their composition.

J Shifty,

Glad to see the jazz posts. I had a chance to see Bobby Hutcherson some years ago. The show was great.
