The Tao of Jazz

Combining innovation, improvisation and collaboration, Jazz is the maverick that went mainstream. Philosopher Dr Julian Baggini introduces the fascinating philosophical links that can be made between philosophy and jazz and, in doing so, reveals what can be learnt about the way to live just by listening a little closer.

In this inspiring exploration of The Tao of Jazz, you will get to grips with process, performance and spontaneity while Juliet Russell's smokin' vocals take you on a mystical, philosophical journey through music.

Baggini is an award winning author who's easy style encourages you to re think everything from yourself (The Ego Trick), your free will (Freedom Regained) and the food that you eat (The Virtues of the Table). Baggini has written for numerous newspapers and magazines, including The Guardian, The Financial Times, Prospect and The New Statesman, as well as for the think tanks The Institute of Public Policy Research and Demos and is editor-in-chief and co-founder of The Philosophers' Magazine. This is a man who knows his philosophy.

Singer, songwriter and vocal coach, Russell is one of the UK's leading voice experts. She founded award-winning Sense of Sound, has coached Grammy award-winners, X-Factor finalists and has been lead coach on BBC's The Voice for the past five seasons. She's performed and collaborated with some of the UK's most illustrious artists including Paloma Faith, Ringo Starr, Brian Eno and Damon Albarn.
