One might notice that there is no Thelonious Monk CD on this list.  I owned Straight, No Chaser, but it got damaged on the journey of life. 


  1. I don't have any physical, hold in your hand jazz albums or CDs. But, I have several digital albums. I have six albums by Chris Botti and one by Louis Armstrong. Once upon a time, I did have a Miles Davis CD, but I didn't get it back after my boyfriend became my exboyfriend... Is jazz your favorite genre?

    1. No. But I sold most of my other CDs. And jazz has been popping up in poetry I've been reading lately.

      I had a cassette of Louis Armstrong back in the day. Cassettes were what music was on before CDs.

    2. Ya don't say? LOL!

      Oh, buddy... I had cassettes, I had 45s, I had LPs. I didn't personally own any, but I remember 8 tracks and reel-to-reels...

  2. Nice list. I am liking the Tuesday Ten
