When to play what: Music for the occasion

Road trip with the boss …

John Coltrane The Impulse Years

John Coltrane: The Impulse Years
A smooth thoughtful collection of some of the genius’ best work. An excellent set from one of jazz’s most transcendent figures.

Dave Matthews Band Crash

Dave Matthews Band: Crash
One of the mature singer-songwriter’s most acclaimed sets, this album is more than just incidental background music for a ride along — it’s an atmospheric addition to the ride.

Franz Schubert String Quartet No 14

Franz Schubert: String Quarter No. 14 in D minor, D. 810, “Death and the Maiden”
Gripping music that won’t get in the way of important conversation. You want to be able to converse with the Big Guy, but dead silence can be a deal breaker. Having this to play will always keep things moving, even if the dialogue gets a bit stagnant.

Guests over for a house warming …

A Tribe Called Quest Anthology

A Tribe Called Quest: Anthology
Bouncy without overbearing, familiar without being tiresome, this collection of the best of ATCQ’s ten-year history is perfect house party music for the grown and sexy.

Brand New Heavies Trunk Funk Best of Album

Brand New Heavies: Trunk Funk – The Best of The Brand New Heavies
Another collection of grooving-good songs that will make guests move without drowning out good conversation. The pulsing bass and swaying beat probably won’t aggravate your new neighbors, either.

Jamiroquai Traveling WIthout Moving

Jamiroquai: Traveling Without Moving
Along with spawning the international hit, “Virtual Insanity,” this blend of electro-pop and Stevie Wonder-esque songcraft and funk is another party must-have. The electronic pump keeps things moving, and the melodies are infectious enough to catch you humming along before you even know it.
