And the answer is…fairly well, actually!
That is, I have found (to my surprise) that I actually own or co-own rather a large trove of mellow music – including, but not limited to, Michael Franks, Paul Hanmer – and Trains to Taung in particular – Norah Jones, and an album called Sunday Morning Chill that we got in Canada in 2005 in a Marie Claire magazine as a giveaway.
And that’s just a couple of days worth of playing stuff in my car…. But do you see a trend? All jazz – and smooth jazz at that. Means I know which seam to mine – and there’s still a fair bit in the collection, unsampled lo, these many years.
I’m going to enjoy the next few months of driving.
My passengers may even enjoy it with me, instead of closing their eyes and ears and desperately wishing they were somewhere else, which is what normally happens.
Groove on, comrades!
