Inspired by Veit Hailperin’s (aka Dr. Jazz) post “A Jazz Song Alphabet, Christian Bossert (aka DJ CHRiSBE) created a wonderful series of Jazz Song Alphabet Lists by various Swing DJs on his superb site “Swing DJ Resources”. Even though I am not actually a DJ myself, he was sweet enough to host my own list as well: Jazz Song Alphabet Vol.4 Now you can also find my list on the blog of the originator of the Jazz Song Alphabet, Dr Jazz: A Jazz Song Alphabet by DJ Maria
