Public Domain Jazz

Despite being a long-living and rich musical style, Jazz is commercially undermined by the fact that most Jazz records with good recording quality are ridiculously expensive, and the market astonishing controlled by major labels, more interested in profit than in Jazz, their artists and their fans. With that in mind, the "Public Domain Jazz" project appeared, with the intention of creating an "as affordable as free is" compilation of great Jazz tracks that any person can have, making not only a fair deal to the Jazz listener, but also giving Jazz back to its own spirit.

If you like any of these tracks, remember that they are in Public Domain: you're free to do with them everything you want, including giving it to your friends. Also, there are many more where these came from: feel free to explore the Free World of Jazz.

This compilation is dedicated to Paula Simões.
