Perspectives The Columbia Jazz Sampler

Oh, I remember some of these and the soft sound of jazz floating down from Jim's office. I often recognize music, but have a difficult time recalling the name or artist. Jim would be proud that musically illiterate wife could at least recall the tunes.

Perspectives The Columbia Jazz Sampler CD provides a delightful mix of soft, and sometimes toe-tapping, jazz from well-known jazz artists, including:
  • Wynton Marsales - April In Paris
  • Kimiko Itoh - Dindi
  • Arthur Blythe - 
  • As Of Yet
  • The Zawinul Syndicate - No Mercy For Me (Mercy, Mercy, Mercy)
  • Jean-Luc Ponty - New Resolutions
  • Harry Connick, Jr. - Little Waltz
  • Grover Washington, Jr. - Shivaree Ride
  • Wayne Shorter - Daredevil
  • Paquito D'Rivera - The Magic City (Miami)
  • Harrison / Blanchard - Softly, As In A Morning Sunrise
  • Kirk Whalum - Glow
  • Branford Marsalis - Just One Of Those Things
  • Full Circle - Sorcerer's Apprentice
Recorded back in 1987 for Columbia (when Jim was switching to CDs from vinyl records).  I'm surprised I enjoyed the CD. It's good relaxing music.
