    Cloudless – Peter Gabriel
    Commendatore Scene – Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
    Fare Thee, Honey, Fare Thee Well (1st Take) – Count Basie
    Queen of the Night – Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
    Eres Todo Para Mi – Free Chapel
    Romans VII – Keith Green
    Somebody to Hold Me – Jonathan Richman
    I’m Waiting for You – Michael W. Smith
    Sunshine of Your Love – Cream
    Sweet Little Jesus Boy – Rebecca St. James

    Cloudless – Peter Gabriel

    This gorgeous piece is off of Gabriel’s instrumental soundtrack for the great film, Rabbit Proof Fence. The film is set in the past, but Gabriel’s soundtrack is surprisingly modern, an ambient, gorgeous, electronic score. Somehow it’s a perfect fit, the stark landscapes of Australia and the aching loneliness of the main characters matching up beautifully to the ambient, minimalist score.

    Commendatore Scene – Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

    This one’s off the soundtrack for Amadeus, the wonderful, wonderful film about Salieri and his fraught relationship with the genius Mozart. This is a random track; I think I have the entire soundtrack on here, which is three CDs, packed to the limit with some of the most beautiful music ever created, mostly recorded by Neville Mariner and the Academy of St. Martin’s in the Fields. It’s an album crafted to create a love of classical music; if you know someone who steadfastly refuses to like classical music, force them to listen to this soundtrack and watch their resolve melt away.

    Fare Thee, Honey, Fare Thee Well (1st Take) – Count Basie

    This is off an essential jazz album, The Complete Decca Recordings of Count Basie, covering, on three CDs, the three years that Basie and his orchestra recorded on the Decca label. If you’re not into early jazz, this’ll get you into it. The recordings have been remastered to their best quality yet, though they still have some of the imperfections of their period. You won’t care though.

    Queen of the Night – Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

    What a coincidence! It’s another one off the Amadeus soundtrack. This aria is from The Magic Flute and it’s one of the greatest arias ever written. The melody, when sung by someone with the chops, is breathtaking.

    Eres Todo Para Mi – Free Chapel

    Free Chapel is the church, with a campus in Georgia and another in California, pastored by Jentezen Franklin. Their worship group puts out a CD every year. This is a great, great live experience album. At the time of the release of this album, their worship leader was Hispanic, so he managed to work in a track in Spanish. The style isn’t Spanish at all, but it’s still a great song, rousing, energetic and fantastic.

    Romans VII – Keith Green

    Talked about Keith Green earlier. This one is off of So You Wanna Go Back to Egypt, one of his best albums, and an album that he GAVE AWAY for free at his concerts and to anyone who wrote and asked for one. Seems he didn’t think he should profit from making Christian music; I told you he was a figure like Christian music hasn’t seen since his death. It’s a quiet, piano based tune about human frailty.

    Somebody to Hold Me – Jonathan Richman

    Jonathan Richman’s work with the Modern Lovers was foundational early punk, but once he went solo, he changed tack. The wonderful album, Jonathan Sings, is a throwback to the styles of the late fifties. It’s pure comfort music. It’s simply impossible not to have a warm feeling that all is right with the world and love can conquer everything while listening to tracks like this one. Beautiful, inspiring pop. His voice may take a little while getting used to; he said of this album that his voice on this one was the voice of someone who always sounds like he has a cold when he actually has a cold. But it’s a taste well worth acquiring.

    I’m Waiting for You – Michael W. Smith

    I’ll Lead You Home is probably the best pop gospel album ever recorded. Smith has an incredible facility for catchy, evocative melodies. This closing song is as great an example of that as there is on the album. It’s a quiet, reverent meditation on God’s longing for reconciliation with every person. It has a wonderful wordless bridge that is pure beauty.

    Sunshine of Your Love – Cream

    Normally, I wouldn’t even mount a defense of this song. I mean, come on. but this particular version is a live recording from Cream’s BBC Sessions album. It’s a great album of Cream playing live on various BBC programs. A little interview stuff, but mostly just great, great songs put down live in studio. I have the main version of this song on here too, but you can’t pass up the BBC Sessions version of any of their songs.

    Sweet Little Jesus Boy – Rebecca St. James

    I think this is the only St. James song I have on here. I love this old Christmas folk song, but it never gets sung anymore. This version is far from folky. It’s really pretty punky, with a heavy bass and a distorted guitar that builds through the song. I enjoy it.

    Would ya look at that - no less than 5 Hoagy Carmichael compositions in a random selection of 10 early jazz tunes. No wonder he's my favorite composer. They sure don't make 'em like that anymore!

    Would I receive a snide look/sneer if I said that I've never been able to get into jazz?

    Not from me. Most jazz these days is just snobby.
    But it started out as cool stuff for regular people. Tell me what you think of this, the first version of Stardust (1933):

    Haha, OK. I really like Coltrane and some stuff by others such as Miles Davis. But I know what you mean, jazz can be hard to get into, and as mentioned above a lot of the contemporary / modern stuff is pretty snobby (and really not that good IMO).

    You shouldn't have to try to like the music that you like.
