I received a cool gift recently. It is Ben Sidran’s talking jazz custom box set.

That’s why this collection is something special. The 24 CDs orchestrated by Sidran document the speaking voice of jazz musicians in a way that’s never really been approached. Individually, the conversations provide fascinating glimpses of creative minds at work, testing phrasings, hesitating at chasms, nailing down hard-won truths.
