One of the most popular columns in JazzTimes is the Artist’s Choice playlist in which noted jazz artists share their picks for their favorite cuts by a jazz legend or according to a specific theme. This back-page feature is like getting a peek into the iPods of your heroes. We culled the best of these playlists from the last few years for this very special mini-booklet that you can use as a reference for your own playlists on iTunes or Spotify. Among the playlists are: bassist John Clayton on his mentor Ray Brown; saxophonist David Liebman on John Coltrane; guitarist Mike Stern on Miles Davis; guitarist Nels Cline on Jim Hall; trumpeter Randy Brecker on Lee Morgan; and many others.
