Fall 2017 Music Playlist!

Times to switch up my iTunes playlist for the autumn!

I like taking long walks around the neighborhood to take in all the beautiful, changing leaf colors in the trees.  It’s nice to listen to cool music especially jazz with a little hip-hop here and there while absorbing the scenery, the cool air and reading a good book with some apple cider and candy corn.

Here’s my list of albums you should check out:

Kind of Blue by Miles Davis

A Love Supreme by John Coltrane

Monk’s Dream by Thelonious Monk

Ella and Louis by Ella Fitzgerald and Louie Armstrong

Jazzmatazz by Guru

 

 

Summer Music Playlist 2017!

Everyone knows that music is the soundtrack to my life.  I love all kinds of music – hip-hop, reggae, r&b, rock, electronica, pop, jazz – you name it.  If it has a good beat, I most likely have that song on my iPod!

Summer is a great time to refresh your playlists with tunes that set the mood for the hot days and sizzling nights.  I listed some songs below that I am feeling right now.  None of them are current chart toppers playing on the radio today, but rather, timeless hits.  Plus, a lot of today’s music is garbage, but I digress…  I’m in a 90s kind of world, and I am glad I got my… playlist.  A good song, no matter when it was made, never goes out of style.

This list is in no particular; they are just random, cool summer songs.
