I was in the grocery store the other day and heard a song that I hadn't heard in quite a while. It was an old song and it took me right back to the days of my youth. I love when songs do that!
My pick of the week: Ambrosia
I guess I would describe this 70's band as easy-listening or light jazz, I'm not really sure,but I love them. Their songs have great melodies and harmonies and are great to listen to when you just want to wind down and relax.
Favorite songs: Biggest Part of Me, How Much I Feel, Apothecary

Every once in awhile I discover a new vocalist who floors me. I remember when I first heard this woman sing. I even had the pleasure of seeing her perform live before she was a star. I was moved by her voice and her music. She’s been around awhile now and she isn’t popular as I think she deserves to be, but I hope she’ll hang in there. I, for, one, am a huge fan.
My pick of the week: Norah Jones
Although she has recorded four albums—her newest, The Fall, coming in November—her debut album is still my favorite. I’m not sure how to describe the music—a unique blend of jazz, folk, and R&B?—but every song touched me. As a vocalist, I especially wanted to perform Don’t Know Why . . . and I did. Still one of the songs I most enjoyed singing. A far cry from Joplin's Piece of My Heart, (another fave) but no less moving.
Recommended Album: Come Away With Me
Favorite Songs: Don't Know Why, Cold Cold Heart, Feeling the Same Way
