Murakami's Jazz Playlist
October 5, 2020
Sometimes. Jazz is a journey for me,
a mental journey. No different than writing
Haruki Murakami is a jazz aficionado, he has been collecting about 10,000 jazz vinyl records — the long explanation in Open Culture. That’s quite obvious for his reader since he often puts jazz nuances into his stories. The above article also provides the link to a Youtube playlist of jazz pieces based on Murakami’s essay ‘Portrait in Jazz’. I’ve also found that there is someone on Spotify who makes an effort to assemble more comprehensive collections (search: Murakami Jazz).
