Some swingin' Sammy with my cup o' Joe.
Starting the day off right!
The Warm Singing Style of Jeri Southern
Buddy Miller - "The Majestic Silver Strings"
Some twang-inflected standards. A lot better than I've made it sound.
Michael Bublé / Call Me Irresponsible
Not a huge fan, but just read about his 3-year old son's cancer diagnosis.
I credit his concert on PBS several years ago with rekindling my interest in the Songbook. It's been a very enriching ride.
Peggy Lee - I'm a Woman (Vinyl)
Stumbled upon this resource this morning. http://www.cafesongbook.com/index.html
Could spend hours reading it, if work didn't beckon.
Simon Rattle - "Americana"
Various orchestras playing the like of Gershwin, Ellington and Strayhorn.
Some Eydie Gorme with my morning Cup of Black java
Gene Harris Quartet on It's the Real Soul
Ella Fitzgerald - "Ella Fitzgerald sings the Cole Porter Songbook"
She positively nails "Anything Goes", and others.
Julie London / Make Love To Me
Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Jerome Kern Song Book
arranged and conducted by Nelson Riddle
1963 Verve V6-4060
My CD/LP/TAPE Collection
Ella Fitzgerald - "Sings the Duke Ellington Songbook"
The Mills Brothers, Greatest Hits
Ella & Duke at the Côte D'Azur
Ella Fitzgerald - "Sings the Duke Ellington Songbook" (disc 3/3)

A great station for anyone interested in the Songbook.
