Some of my favorite music to play during a party is a collection of the old jazz standards. You know the songs, almost everyone does. Made famous decades ago by legends like Frank Sinatra and Louis Armstrong, these songs fit nicely into the background at almost any dinner party. One of my favorite things about this kind of music is that so many of the songs have been covered by new artists in the last few years, giving them a fun new spin. Michael Bublé is probably the best know of these new artists, but there are a whole host of singers who have fun covers. There are even some singers better known in other genres who have done a cover or two. I find that these songs make the best conversation pieces. I’ve told many-a party guest “You won’t believe who is singing this right now” as a familiar song has played in the background.
These are just a few of my favorites.
