Editors' Notes There's something to be said for music that retains the spontaneity and complexity of jazz while still keeping the tone low-key. Ranging from the smooth-jazz dawn of the mid-'70s through now, what follows is a breezy mix of pop-inflected jazz calibrated to keep things mellow. Our editors regularly refresh this playlist. If you like a song, add it to your library.
