I’ve been continuing to enjoy listening to music from Napster while at work – and I’ve actually had a couple of days where I’m mostly actually in the office, so I *can* listen to some tunes.
I must have one of the most perverse setups around – my Cambridge Soundworks speakers are connected to my iMac. So, thanks to a nifty piece of free OS X software called LineIn I take the audio output from my Windows box which runs Napster and route it into my iMac and out to the speakers. I’m probably one of a very few people working on a Mac but playing music from a PC. There’s oughta be a less kludgy way.
Anyway – my current jazz playlist includes these albums, which I shuffle:
Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers – Moanin’
Pepper Adams Quintet – 10 to 4 at the Five Spot
Brother Jack McDuff – Down Home Style
Bill Frisell – Nashville
Joe Lovano – I’m All For You
Sonny Rollins – Global Warming and +3
Brad Mehldau – Progression: Art of the Trio, Volume 5
Charlie Haden – Land of the Sun
Shirley Horn – You Won’t Forget Me, I Remember Miles
Roy Hargrove – Habana
Stan Gets – Stan Getz & Bill Evans
Dinah Washington – Dinah Jams
Ben Webster – Ben Webster Meets Oscar Peterson
Charles Mingus – Mingus Ah Um
Wes Montgomery – Full House
Booker Little & Max Roach
Paul Chambers – Whims of Chambers
Good listening all around!
