Thanks, John. I've been meaning to pick up a copy of those fine symphonies and now I know a good version to pick.

Hopefull this is the right spot to ask. I'm looking for some good recordings of mellow jazz. I'd prefer non vocal. I do have Kind of Blue and a bunch of Diana Krall (which is obviously non vocal). There are some evenings where I just feel like throwing on something mellow but I realize my collection is somewhat limited.

Anyone have any recommendations? One cd that I have been given as a recommendation is Bill Evans Explorations.

Try some McCoy Tyner on for size -- particularly this one that features bassist Stanley Clarke:

I was lucky enough to see this combination live at Yoshi's in Oakland, CA. So good.

Also, if you don't have any Dave Brubeck, fix it now.

Oops noticed a boo boo in my previous post. Obviously Diana Krall is vocal..

I actually have Brubeck's Time Out CD. I'll check out your recommendations.

Try the Paul Desmond Quartet Live. In addition to Desmond's alto sax, you also have Ed Bickert on guitar. Mellow but not boring. I bought this as a double album on vinyl back in the mid 70s. It been re-released on a well-filled (79 minutes) CD. You can listen to preview tracks on iTunes to get an idea of what it's like.

You could also look at something from the Oscar Peterson Trio. Canadiana Suite is pretty mellow.

Also check out Jeff Healey. He did a lot of 20s Jazz. Really upbeat stuff.

I downloaded some high quality flac from HDTracks on the weekend. I downloaded Bill Evans' Waltz for Debbie and Moonbeams. Both are excellent!
