• Various Artists - Relaxin’ Jazzin’ and Chillin’ – Instrumental Hits 1957-1962

30 smooth, relaxing and chilled jazz sounds from 1957-1962 featuring cream of the crop instrumentals from such luminaries as Dave Brubeck, Billy Vaughan, Ray Charles, Stan Getz and more!

This collection is made up entirely from songs that made the US charts and some that also charted in the UK including hits like 'Calcutta', 'Take Five', 'Alley Cat' and the unmistakeable 'Fly Me To The Moon'.

The lush orchestrations and jazz rhythms make this set a great way to sit back and relax. The music herein should be classified as (and several can now be) the very roots of what would later become known as chill out music.
