tracks [birthday party]

These are for a birthday party that is themed as a 50s cocktail party. It’s highly anachronistic but should set the mood alright. I sort of threw these together, so they aren’t so coherent and I gave too many artists double-duty. I think the 2nd CD turned out much better.

Volume 1
1. Cafe “La Humedad” (Roberto Goyeneche)
2. C’est Si Bon (Don Byron/Mickey Katz)
3. The Best Is Yet To Come (Frank Sinatra)
4. Frasquita Serenade (Don Byron)
5. Girl From Ipanema (Getz/Gilberto/Gilberto)
6. Speak Low (Billie Holiday)
7. Good Grief, Dennis (Chico Hamilton)
8. Orange Colored Sky (Nat King Cole)
9. The Late, Late Show (Dakota Staton)
10. I Get Ideas (Louis Armstrong)
11. My Favourite Things (Dave Brubeck)
12. Giant Steps (John Coltrane)
13. Summertime (Miles Davis)
14. Royal Garden Blues (Don Byron)
15. I Get A Kick Out Of You (Ella Fitzgerald)
16. Mary’s Ideas (Mary Lou Williams)
17. Salt Peanuts (Joshua Redman)
18. All The Thing You Are (Lennie Tristano)
19. Blue Skies (Cassandra Wilson)
20. Blue Rondo A La Turk (Dave Brubeck)
21. Beyond The Sea (Bobby Darin)

Volume II
1. Everybody’s Bobbin’ (Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross)
2. Autumn Leaves (Wynton Marsalis)
3. Hocus-Pocus (Lee Morgan)
4. Blue Monk (Thelonious Monk)
5. Pent-Up House (Sonny Rollins)
6. Love Walked In (Ray Brown)
7. Night In Tunisia (Bud Powell)
8. Lester Leaps In (Count Basie)
9. Oh, Good Grief (Ellis Marsalis)
10. Daphne (Django Reinhardt)
11. Rendex-Vous Sous La Pluie (Jean-Fred Mele & The ‘Jazz Swing’ Zepilli)
12. A Foggy Day (Dakota Staton)
13. Outra Vez (Stan Getz)
14. Desafinado (Ryuichi Sakamoto)
15. Last Tango In Paris (Gotan Project)

  1. All the right songs! You even had Wynton Marsalis, and I was just telling a friend how good he would sound with a coctail… If you want a female brazilian-coctail vocal, I would go for Elis Regina.
