Jazz to Melt the Frost off the Pumpkin

It's cold outside early this morning and there is frost on the pumpkins. Well, I can't have that. Here's a list of gently simmering jazz that will melt the frost off the pumpkins and warm you soul. There's some great tracks here including the first track by Booker Ervin with some excellent trumpet work by Woody Shaw and tasty ivory manipulations by Kenny Barron. Of course, I had to include the original Mr. T, Stanley Turrentine, and the outright funkiness of Brother Jack McDuff and "Cold Duck Time." Click here to listen.

1. Gichi - Booker Ervin
2. Pia - Stanley Turrentine
3. Sir John - Blue Mitchell, Curtis Fuller, Johnny Griffin, Wynton Kelly, Wilbur Ware, and Philly Joe Jones
4. Cold Duck Time - Brother Jack McDuff
5. Blues In The Closet - Ron Carter
6. Frank's Blues - Frank Hewitt
7. Little Rock - Sonny Sharrock
8. Faith - Cuong Vu
