Big Guitars from Texas  Near East Beast   Favoriting I don't usually play this one, a Denny Freeman composition 
Bob Brozman Orchestra  Lumiere de la Mer   Favoriting BB plays (almost) all the instruments-- and there are many-- on his new album, "Lumiere" (Riverboat, 2007) 
Kusuma Sari & Sading  Tabuh Penyuwud   Favoriting Music from Bali, Gamelan Batel/Wayang Ramayana is the title of the CD. I can't stop reading Paul Theroux novels; his book-- the Consul's Files-- takes place in Malaysia, near Bali 
Sonny Rollins  Someone To Watch Over Me   Favoriting This Gershwin & Gershwin tune is worth waking up for, one of my two favorite tunes from "Silver City"--a 2-CD collection of Sonny' work. The other fave is "Tennessee Waltz" 
Frankie Trumbauer  Singin' the Blues   Favoriting One of the first tenor sax players to make melody the key to his playing; recorded in the 1920s with, I think, Bix on cornet 
Hoagy Carmichael  Lazybones   Favoriting My dad used to "sing" this song to wake us up, a song that echoed his working class philosophy: "Lazy bones, loafing all the day, how you expect to make a dime?"

Moussa Doumbia  Samba   Favoriting 70s funk from Mali, on "Keleya"
