“Afro Blue” is a jazz standard composed by Mongo Santamaría, perhaps best known in its arrangement by John Coltrane. “Afro Blue” was the first jazz standard built upon a typical African 3:2 cross-rhythm, or hemiola. It has been covered by just about everyone. This mix presents 15 of my favourites. Devoting a mix to one tune – is that crazy? No – because every track is different and everyone is a belter. Judge for yourself.
