Nice Genius Work There

A Twitter friend mentioned that he was listening to Bill Evans tonight. His smart mention prompted me to abandon the Ace of Base that I was listening to and play some of the Bill Evans that I had. He was right. It was indeed "perfect Sunday evening music."

I then put iTunes Genius to the test. Twenty-five similar songs coming right up? Not too shabby.
  1. "What Kind of Fool Am I?" - Bill Evans
  2. "If I Were A Bell" - Miles Davis
  3. "Dancing In The Dark" - Diana Krall
  4. "Here Comes The Sun" - Nina Simone
  5. "Birdland" - Weather Report
  6. "Aural Oasis" - Wynton Marsalis
  7. "Candy" - The Manhattan Transfer
  8. "A Lovely Way To Spend An Evening" - Johnny Mathis
  9. "Skylark" - Paul Desmond
  10. "Danny Boy" - Bill Evans
  11. "Alone Together" - McCoy Tyner
  12. "You're My Everything" - Miles Davis
  13. "The Low Road" - John Scofield
  14. "I Get Along Without You Very Well" - Diana Krall
  15. "Four Women" - Nina Simone
  16. "Manteca" - Dizzy Gillespie
  17. "Goodbye" - Wynton Marsalis
  18. "After The Rain" - John Coltrane
  19. "When I Fall In Love" - Bill Evans
  20. "The Nearness of You" - Norah Jones
  21. "Harlequin" - Weather Report
  22. "Strange Fruit" - Billie Holiday
  23. "Venus De Milo" - Miles Davis
  24. "The Night We Called It A Day" - Diana Krall
  25. "Worrisome Heart" - Melody Gardot

Thanks for the thoughts regarding my Mom. I told her about the blog and that I've received well wishes for her from Nashville.(two out of three comments that I received were from Nashville) Told her that good folks live there and that's why were trying to move there. Thanks again and thanks to monstermash40 too!!!
