Those of you familiar with my jazz mixes will be aware that I often use a theme which influences my track selection. Well, with this particular mix I’m coming on all ambiguous. The title Black Star could mean many things to many people. Does black refer to ethnicity? Could there be a covert reference to Marcus Garvey? Is it a theoretical star built using semiclassical gravity as an alternative to a black hole? Could it be a nod to the rap crew Black Star?
Maybe it’s all those things? I leave it entirely to you to make your own interpretation. As ever, I have mixed a selection of jazz music by artists I love and admire. Please check it out.
