The Playlist Project


What is the “Playlist” project?

The “Playlist” project is a project within my blog. It consists of 3 Spotify playlists with 50 songs in each. The playlists are organised by genre and consist of the three main genres that I listen to – classical, jazz and hip-hop. The subgenres are romantic classical (piano) music, post-60 piano jazz and western underground hip-hop.

This is the place where you can expand your Classical / Jazz / Hip-Hop encyclopedia. With jazz I will focus mainly on the jazz piano side of jazz since that is my main instrument. I try to add some “less known” artists to the list as well.  Under each genre I have selected a number of 50 artists and composers with their respective lists. The artists are numbered both on the list and in the playlist for easy reference.

I managed to finish the project in the end of 2018.
