Jazz Albums that just about everyone will enjoy

A Listmania! list by S. Kat (A place where the sun don't shine)
The list author says: "There seem to be a lot of people who are afraid of jazz. Or they aren't interested because they think the hard bop style with 1000 notes a minute screeching solos is all there is.

This list is for them."

Jazz Samba Encore
