BUBBLE BATH JAZZ

Here's what she has blessed us with this week:
"This playlist includes some of my favorite jazz standards and artists ranging from Bill Evans to Kneebody to Stan Kenton.
The playlist begins with a nice introduction into jazz for those who don't like jazz; it starts with The Bad Plus. They're a trio from Minnesota that blends jazz and contemporary pop music into one. This makes it very accessible to anyone.
The playlist then goes through a few of my favorite jazz pianists, like and Errol Garner, and arrives with some more oldie classic big band jazz with some Ellington and Count Basie. I threw in a little new-age jazz with Esperanza Spalding and Gretchen Parlato.
Bonobo shows up in the mix too – it just seemed fitting. I end the playlist with a standard intro/outro that was recorded by The Bonzo Dog Band, a comedy jazz/pop band from the 60s.
