Because listening to jazz is so important to the jazz musician, Learn Jazz Standards is starting to promote the albums of current jazz artists. It’s important to be familiar with old classic recordings, BUT we should really all stay current on all the great jazz being produced today! Jazz is alive and vibrant with many newer artists-and our goal is to promote great albums and help spread the word!
Gilad Hekselman is a phenominal guitarist and we are proud to promote his 2011 release of “Hearts Wide Open”.
