Leonard Bernstein: What is Jazz?

Spotify is a wonderful thing.

This week I stumbled across the album 'What is Jazz' by Leonard Bernstein.

It begins with two fascinating lectures on jazz, given by Bernstein, followed by some music that falls somewhere between 'Classical' music and 'Jazz' (the elusive 'Third Stream' for the true geeks).

You can find a Spotify playlist of the album here, or embedded in the player below. Highly recommended, enjoy.
