I am not nearly as good a writer as my wife is so please bear with me. It seems here lately my tastes in music have started to change a bit. When I was a bit younger I was really into rock and roll and metal and a bit of rap too... those days passed and I moved on to bluegrass and folk. I was raised on a steady diet of Souther Gospel and old country standards. I still enjoy listening to Bob Dylan, Damien Rice, Ryan Adams and others in that vein. But not like I used to. Now if I'm in the car I'd just as soon listen to classical radio than 99.9% of the crap I hear on the radio. (personal opinion) and if I'm not in the mood for music, which happens a lot these days, I'll turn on NPR. I love the jazz stuff they play at night... So here is my question after my ramblings. What are some good slow jazz or blues songs to start me off in that area and what are some of your favorite classical numbers to listen to if that is your thing? It just seems more natural to me to sit with my briar listening to something soothing than something stimulating if that makes sense. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks all.
