Nice set of CDs for Easter!
Something to listen to this weekend
Got home from work and found two packages waiting. One from Germany featuring the Hessischen Rundfunk Big Band playing Steely Dan. A CD released just a couple of weeks ago.
The other parcel contained two CDs of Joni Mitchell material. Both sold by coffee giant Starbucks in its stores across the USA. I'm not sure about other countries.
One CD features 18 songs by other artists picked by Joni. From Duke Ellington and Billie Holiday to Deep Forest and New Radicals.
One CD features other artist picking their Joni Favourites. One interesting thing about both CDs is of course the comments in the booklet. Why a track was chosen.
These are two good looking and good sounding compilations.
Read more about the Joni CDs here and here.
And if you're fluent in German you can read about the hr Big Band here.
We've already added tracks from all three above to the playlist.
