Jazz--It's not just for breakfast anymore

Jazz For the Nap Room 

Having good luck lately with this $1.99 bargain bin find.  Believe me, any music that helps put a dozen preschoolers to sleep is King Midas golden. And any music that keeps me calm in my roll as The Nap Lady, channeling Mr. Sandman is welcome.

Maybe I need Mingus doing "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat," as I still have a few reluctant nappers. Tranquilizer darts are not allowed!

Over the years I've played ever so many lullabye and kiddie cds, orchestral opera favorites, Spanish guitar solos, Vince Guaraldi's A Charlie Brown Christmas, Bach for babies, Mozart for munchkins, Lives of the Great Composers cassettes, a sleep-inducing relaxation freebie cd from the Crowne Plaza hotel in Austin, and FM radio 101.1 broadcasts of Dallas City Council meetings*.

*The "agenda meetings", held on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month, are broadcast live on WRR Classical Radio (101.1 FM) and telecast on Time Warner Cable channel 6B, 16, 66 or 76 (Digital Channel 66/76) in Dallas.

I see you overseeing an album called Jazz for Preschoolers.

I would enjoy test driving the tunes. Today I played disc 10 and 11 from "Wolf Hall", and the English accents were fairly successful sleep-inducers.

Sounds of the Humpback Whale...works like a charm every time.
