Artists and other creative types: Do you listen to music in the background while you’re working on a project? Jazz can be a great choice—there’s just something about it that can calm your mind and get your creativity flowing at the same time.
So if you do like background music and you like jazz—or are just discovering it—here are three great jazz playlists to consider. The best thing about these is that they’re all on YouTube: You don’t need any special accounts or to sign up on yet another platform to access them.
