Below are a few CD's that have been great background music for my writing lately. Enjoy!
Chris Botti, Italia. Sigh. I could listen to "Deborah's Theme" or the title track over and over again (and often do!) Though I would recommend any of Botti's works, I think this last CD is one of his best.
Madeleine Peyroux, Careless Love and Bare Bones. Close your eyes and you'd swear that Billie Holliday came back from the beyond for a few more recording sessions. I've only recently discovered her music, and what a great find it turned out to be!
Diana Krall, The Girl in the Other Room. Smoky vocals that kind of reminds you of being in a jazz club in the 1920's. Might inspire some romantic poetry or help you along with a romantic scene. Pour yourself some wine and see where it takes you!
