The Year In Music

Another end of year list. Favorite music is such a subjective thing that I'm at a lost as to how you could narrow it down. I have to thank Howie Klein for giving me the two most popular CDs in my house right now (Ray Sings, Basie Swings and John Coltrane: Fearless Leader). His gift has created jazz fans of my children, who are now discovering Sarah Vaughan, Tierney Sutton, Duke Ellington and Rosemary Clooney ). After years of Barney and Raffi CDs, that's the greatest gift of all. My Favorite Things (includes exclusive downloads of music)
