A melancholic playlist dominated by jazzy and ambient tones created last night in my appartment whilst smoking and drinking rose wine with a french friend just before falling asleep with her. This are the last days I'll be seeing any of the people I met here in France before moving to Spain and afterwards to Mexico so this mix serves as a farewell note to them as well.

Most of the songs in the list are not precisely 'jazz' but then, they aren't anything else either. I'd recommend turning off all lights while you blast this one in a good stereo system or listening with headphones.

The highlight on the list would be the soaring "electra song" with the great greek vocalist Savinna Yannatou delivering a very moving performance about Sophocles' classic "electra" and Arve Henriksen's warm trumpet providing a brassy and textural tone.
Hope you enjoy.

The flow between them songs is a bit sloppy but I didn't had the time to rearrange it. I find #4 would fit better in between 9 and 10.

This is sounding mighty fine. Lots of unknowns for me which I really like to see. Top notch!
