Do you love jazz, but have an open-minded friend who doesn’t simply because he doesn’t know were to begin in its vast history? Turn evangelical. With Legacy Recordings and Sony Classical’s new series, Music for You, you can hand your bewildered buddy a CD, or 11, that works as a perfect introduction to jazz and classic music. The CDs are also put together with relaxing moods in mind, so you can buy a few to soothe your harried self.
“In order to excite and cultivate new audiences of all ages for classical music and jazz, we have to return it to the realm of popular music,” says Jeff Jones, Legacy Recordings’ Senior Vice President.
