West Coast Jazz refers to styles of jazz that developed in Los Angeles and San Francisco during the 1950s. West Coast jazz is often seen as a subgenre of cool jazz, which consisted of a calmer style than bebop or hard bop. West Coast is synonymous with "cool jazz". What better music to listen to on a hot summer evening?

This mix was inspired by a suggested Jazziz playlist, but I added many more cuts to make it worth sitting around for an evening with a cool drink in the shade. Please enjoy this special summer menu from the Kitchen.
