About Playlist

When the bebop revolution came around, many jazzmen found themselves in a difficult position: some of them didn't have the technical ability, some simply didn't have a taste for the frenzied improvisations, and others didn't identify with the African American culture of the great boppers. So, a new form of jazz was born—this time in California—that focused on the purity of sound and melody. This new generation was defined by one word: cool. Explore the universe of cool jazz's biggest stars.
