Springtime brings warming temperatures, a spirit of renewal, and a bunch of jazz tunes with the season in mind. Listen to these songs as you gaze out your window at the last bit of snow, walk around a park, or leaf through a gardening catalog.
Swing into Spring with Blossom Dearie and More
Clifford Brown/Max Roach Quintet
Song: Joy Spring
from Verve Jazz Masters 44
If spring has not yet sprung in your geographical area, point your speakers to the skies and play "Joy Spring" by Clifford Brown and Max Roach. The weather should respond favorably. Joy is contagious.
A springtime music set would not be complete without including a singer whose first name also happens to be a true sign of spring's arrival. Blossom Dearie's light, airy voice accompanies her equally light touch on the piano.
