What is an expert in this situation?  Maybe I'm one; I've created thousands of personal playlists.

You are in fact an expert. For instance, if I wanted a playlist of Booker Ervin's best 20 songs where would I find it.

Well, these are the first two playlists I made of Ervin's music.  Perhaps my playlists are unusual in that the majority of the tracks come from albums led by others, notably Mingus, Weston, Haynes, and Waldron.

  ONE:

 

1.     Lunar Tune

 

2.     A Day to Mourn

 

3.     Status Seeking—Mal Waldron

 

4.     Scoochie—Roy Haynes

 

5.     Portrait of Vivian—Randy Weston

 

6.     Thirteen—Mal Waldron

 

7.     Under Paris Skies—Roy Haynes

 

8.     Devil Woman—Charles Mingus

 

9.     Al’s In

 

 

 

TWO:

 

1.     Cryin’ Blues—Mingus

 

2.     Prayer for Passive Resistance—Mingus

 

3.     Sketch of Melba—Haynes

 

4.     Berkshire Blues—Weston

 

5.     Cry Me Not

 

6.     Mr. Wiggles

 

7.     African Cookbook—Weston

 

8.     Warp and Woof—Waldron

 

9.     I Can’t Get Started

 

10. The Lamps is Low

Expertise is partly knowledge.  If you have listened to and appreciated particular artists, then you are some degree of expert.

I also make a lot of thematic playlists: jazz and blues, jazz/world music, duos (strictly two instruments), Miles Davis sidemen, jazz artists playing Gershwin, cool jazz, etc.
