Gabriele Orsi is an amazing Jazz guitarist from Italy and who I will be featuring on a special playlist. I decided to name it the “Gabriele Orsi Montage.” He was very kind enough to send me several tracks from his new album “Monk’s Mind” and from other albums he has produced since 2007. They are all listed here on his website (In Italian). Here’s more of a Biography of him:

"I just downloaded this app and it's my first (certainly of many!) evenings with you. The music is great but so is the philosophy of why you created this space and the visual and functional appearance of the space.
Congratulations, I don't think I will ever become tired of visiting you!"

"Since I discovered this station by chance I listen most every day. The music is eclectic and covers the wide spectrum of Jazz from New Orleans style through the Avant Garde to solid fusion. I was a jazz programmer for 12 years and I have to admit that on this station I have heard recordings by band leaders such as, Charlie Mingus, Joe Zawinul, Donald Byrd, Duke Ellington, Abbey Lincoln, Charlie Hayden, Art Blakey, Billie Holiday, Chick Corea and many other pressings that I did not know existed. The station has been an education to me. i thought I knew it all, but I'm now humbled by the quality, width and depth of the programing. This is an excellent site for beginners and old fogies like me. Thank you Jose!"
