Playlist: Convertible Night

I managed to snag an inexpensive convertible to rent for my recent visit home to Sarasota. Somewhere Joe was gracious enough to come up to see me, and we enjoyed an evening of dinner, drum circle, and driving the beach roads on the islands. This is the mix I burned for night drives in the convertible. Picture it: a quiet night, cruising in the warm breezes under the palms with a new friend. Lovely.

This is an instrumental mix of jazz, ambient, and electric or acoustic guitar designed for conversation or quiet times. One hour.

The mix seemed seamless. The night, the top down, the rush, the stars, the city lights, the nowhere-to-be all wove together in a sort of breathless hymn. They should package your CD with the Sebring. Call it "Ride."

I see you like Eno and Lanois! Me too. You gotta check out a band called The Durutti Column, specifically their song called "Otis" I think if you like Eno and Lanois, you'l like this song too.
