It's unforgivable I don't already have these, I know.  
I have a favor to ask- I'm supposed to create a poster for a Blue Note jazz artist for my illustration class, but... I don't actually have the jazz selection I thought I did. :( I have a lot of blues, which doesn't help me for this assignment, and a ton of jazz artists doing Christmas songs, but very little of what these people are famous for.

For inspirational purposes, would anyone have some jazz tracks I could listen to for ideas? Right now I'm leaning toward Louis Armstrong (he collaborated with Duke Ellington for Blue Note, and is therefore eligible for my purposes), but I have the option of any of their artists, and variety is always a plus.


Thanks!

I have some Ella Fitzgerald and some Nina Simone. Want me to zip 'em up and send 'em to you?

For you: ella and nina.

I had less Nina than I thought, but hopefully something in here will help. :)

I can just grab some stuff off OPP and send it to you.

ANY SPECIFICS OR JUST ANY LOUIS ARMSTRONG?

YAY.

Pretty much any Louis Armstrong. Not counting his Christmas songs, all I have of his is "Let's Do It (Let's Fall In Love)", and that's just wrong.

Although, if you happen to see any sassy female jazz artists in your search, I could go with that. If not, no worries!

I KNOW NOTHING OF JAZZ. Give me names and I shall investigate! :D

Armstrong I'm grabbing RIGHT NOW. (two disc best of collection)

Okay! I have the 2 CD set I got with you at Virgin. I also think I have an Etta CD and possibly some other songs here and there. ALSO uh how much time can you kill? I am leaving the wedding at 3 and have to run an errand with my mom after that, so I may not leave LI until 6ish? I don't know if you want to wait around that long. :/

Also. OMG I WANT TO KNIT NOW.

I mean, I can work on homework and go to the gym- how late do you think it'll be before you're back in the city?
