9. My "go-to" jazz mix CD that I keep in the car:

1). Miles Davis / So What

2). Herbie Hancock / Maiden Voyage

3). Wayne Shorter / Deluge

4). Wayne Shorter / Mahjong

5). Wayne Shorter / Witch Hunt

6). Wayne Shorter / Speak No Evil

7). Wayne Shorter / The Big Push

8). John Coltrane / Equinox

9). John Coltrane / My Favorite Things

It's like "smooth jazz" with teeth...all of the tracks have a discernible melody, but there is also improvisation. When I lived in California, this CD sounded SWEET driving down the Pacific Coast Highway. It's pretty much great driving music anywhere, except the Nevada desert. When I lived there, it felt like the right music for the wrong place, or the wrong music for the right place. Take your pick.

I have quite a bit of music from all of the artists above, but this is the CD I would give to someone who says "I don't like jazz." If they still don't like it after that, I give up.
