Straight No Chaser - A Jazz Show

Welcome to Straight No Chaser, the Award-winning Podcast hosted by Jeffrey Siegel

Feb 14, 2011

Romance is in the air. It's Valentine's Day, and hopefully you've made some soon to be memorable plans with that special someone. Rememebr, it's the thought that counts.

What is romance without music? I shudder to think. And therefore, here's Podcast 207 to the rescue, with a one hour plus uninterrupted mixtape of romantic music to set the mood. I've gone for both the classic jazz (Miles Davis' "My Funny Valentine", Chet Baker's "Alone Together" and John Coltane's "Lush Life") and for some newer recordings from Joe Lovano's Us Five, Corinne Bailey Rae and Halie Loren. Light some scented candles and listen to:

Corinne Bailey Rae - "My Love" from The Love E.P.

Miles Davis Quintet - "My Funny Valentine" from Cookin' With the Miles Davis Quintet.

Dave Brubeck - "Let's Get Away From It All" from Angel Eyes.

Halie Loren - "It's You" from After Dark.

Eric Marienthal - Title Song from Voices of the Heart.

Curtis Fuller - "When Lights Are Low" from The Complete Blue Note Recordings.

John Coltrane - Title Song from Lush Life.

Chet Baker - "Alone Together" from Chet.

Bill Evans - "Lover Man" from The Complete Bill Evans on Verve.

Etta James - "Do Right Man, Do Right Woman" from The Essential Etta James.

Joe Lovano's Us Five - "Donna Lee" from Bird Songs.
