Jazz ramblings

These podcasts always put a big smile on my face. They may be planned in advance (who knows!) but there is such a delightful style of improvisation and random meandering that is a real joy to listen to. Like jazz itself? It's also a great way to learn about the current jazz scene. Highly recommended!
