In the early 2000s, Swedish singer-songwriter Jens Lekman had just started to find his voice. He was making thoughtful, funny, romantic indie pop, weaving personal, sharply observed stories into a technicolor patchwork of samples that burst at the seams.

“The way I learned to make music was by making collages with samples from records that I found at flea markets and other places,” says Lekman. “Hundreds and thousands of tiny little snippets of audio from this place and that place.”

Fans and critics around the world couldn’t get enough, and Lekman soon released two of his most acclaimed and successful albums: In 2005, “Oh You’re So Silent Jens,” and in 2007, “Night Falls Over Kortedala.”

But then, as in every Jens Lekman story,

The Akselerator Electric Guitar, Based on Gibson Epiphone SG

Name: Scott and Aksel McDermott
Location: New York, New York
Guitar: The Akselerator

Back when things were locked down for Covid in 2020, my then 7-year-old son Aksel found an old Epiphone SG in the back of a closet that I’d bought 25 years ago but never learned to play. He took to it immediately. A weekly lesson soon started at the Williamsburg School of Music when things opened up a little and he was hooked. However, after sitting for so long, the SG needed to go in for a tune-up eventually. With nothing to play for a few days, we started talking about building a simple string between two nails on a board stretched over a Coke bottle contraption, as a fun little project. But it’s only rock ’n’ roll if it’s electric. Suddenly we were researching pickup-wiring schemes and the difference between a single-coil and

20 Jazz Masterpieces You Should Hear

Jazz is a uniquely American art form, a story born out of the experience of African American people. Several tributaries have flowed into the main river we call jazz: spirituals, gospel, blues, and ragtime, to name a few. Styles vary greatly, from the laidback subtlety of Count Basie’s piano to the frenzy of Charlie Parker’s bebop saxophone, and so many more. Some jazz artists have achieved worldwide fame. Others remain relatively anonymous. Many of the legends have “moved on up a little higher,” as Mahalia Jackson memorably described death. Still, the music goes on.

Even among jazz fans, few understand its spiritual nature. The best jazz (as I explain in A Supreme Love: The Music of Jazz and the Hope of the Gospel) reflects the narrative—familiar among people shaped by the Christian gospel—that moves from deep misery to inextinguishable joy.

The best jazz reflects the narrative that moves from
