Birthday Jazz download


I recorded this in 2010 to commemorate the birth of my daughter, Blanca. When she was just a few months old, some of our closest friends and family got together at a nice little spot down by the Guadalquivir; this mix, recorded for that occasion, played in the background.

Later, when I uploaded it to Mixcloud around the time of the site's one-year anniversary, Birthday Jazz became an immediate success. It was chosen as one of the 25 best mixes of the year, and has been—since the day it was uploaded—one of the most popular jazz mixes on the site.

Many thanks to all who have favorited the mix, recommended it to others, and supported the birthday jazz vision over the past few years. I can think of no better way to honor my wonderful daughter than with music from the heart. There are times I feel I just can't wait for the day she's finally ready to fully share in this very special music with me.
