When I was given an Ipod some time ago, a niece (who shall remain nameless) wondered if my play list would include things such as the Black Eyed Peas. At this point I am writing a short blog to explain what's on my ipod and how my seasoning and maturity have influenced my choices. BTW thanks to all those who have given me itunes gift cards to build my play list.
I have a number of tunes by Chris Botti, an outstanding jazz trumpeter. I also have quite a few things by Peter White and Russ Freeman, smooth jazz guitarists. Another guitarist that I like a lot is Jack Jezzro. Of course, I like many songs from the 50's and 60's such as "The Long and Winding Road" and "Here There and Everywhere", both Beatles songs. I also listen to standards on piano or guitar. Beegie Adair has done many of these very well. On piano I also like David Benoit for jazz.
Nancy Lamott is a great vocalist. Many of her songs have a melancholy tone, possibly because she had terminal cancer which cut short her career. Check her out. Eliane Elias does a great job on jazz vocals as well.
I make no apologies for my taste in music Landeelu. As you mature, you will no doubt gain full appreciation for some of these artists. My music career started at the age of 6 when I began accordion lessons (my mother forced me). I conducted our class choir in the 6th grade. I studied trombone for 3 years in junior high and I have sung in church choirs repeatedly. Impeccable credentials.
Over and out,
