Vladislav Delay - Huone [Uncut]

Sometimes you just need to sit back and be taken on a minimal electronic journey. The progression of Delay's tracks are really lovely to listen to. I enjoy the hesitation and wandering in the middle of this one before it finds its way back home.

Billie Holiday - Fine And Mellow (Live CBS Studios 1957)

Every musician absolutely smashes their part here and Billie will forever be my favorite female voice in all of recorded music. Not a lot of people know that but my closest friends surely do. This session is arguably one of the finest ever gatherings of Jazz musicians in one room playing together. Billie Holiday (vocals), Lester Young (tenor sax), Roy Eldridge (trumpet), Doc Cheatham (trumpet), Vic Dickenson (trombone), Coleman Hawkins (tenor sax), Ben Webster (tenor sax), Gerry Mulligan (baritone sax), Mal Waldron (piano), Osie Johnson (drums), Milt Hinton (bass),  Danny Barker (guitar).
