Depends on what mood youre going for -
I loved This Mortal Coil and Dokken. For a while in there it was Bad Brains and Screaming Trees. For relaxing, I love Bob Dylan, Nat King Cole and Ella Fitzgerald. I miss my They Might be Giants - I wore out the tape and can't find the CD...I have to admit I like the Cowboy Junkies, Dixie Chicks.

Pecan the cat loves Frank Sinatra--she will come running up to the speakers and stares as he sings; on the other hand Leanne Rimes makes her flee from the room (as did our guests singing happy birthday the other morning...

Oh yes - a little Helen Reddy can be good for the soul. And it's amazing the bonding that can go on while undergoing a multigenerational roadtrip..

Eric Dolphy and Charles Mingus are jazz musicians. Dolphy plays sax and other reed instruments and Mingus plays the bass. Dolphy played with a lot of greats--Trane, Andrew Hill, Oliver Nelson. So has Mingus...I think they might have even played together. They both have some great albums according to the Penguin Guide to Jazz.

Who is Rusted Root? I like This Mortal Coil; had a copied tape, don't know what album.

Rusted Root is a band out of Pittsburgh, they usually get pigeon-holed as "world beat"; African influences, lots of percussion. One song of theirs did get some radio play, called "Send Me On My Way".
