Jazz Amnesty Sound System – #10 “J.A.S.S. Duos”
The Jazz Amnesty Sound System is made up of Andy Williams and sweet daddy luv.
A duo of like-minded DJs that share a love of jazz music by making mixes that highlight various aspects of what jazz is and how jazz has influenced many different styles of music that have come up in it’s wake.
In this spirit we bring to you a new mix comprised only of jazz duets. Two instruments that parley, dance, bob and weave to create a musical entity that is greater than just the push and pull interplay of two creative minds. If done right it becomes a living, breathing entity that only sparks into existence while the spirit of improvisation is strong within the musicians. After which it fades away… until J.A.S.S. digs it up and lets it breathe new life once again.
