Okay, usually I'll buy my dad CDs that he says he wants, but this year I thought I'd do it a little differently and surprise him. So, I come to you to ask for recommendations of CDs he would like, provided the following list of his six favorite CDs (in no particular order):
W. A. Mozart, Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, Notturna, Serenata, Divertimento , performed by Franz Liszt Chamber Orchestra, Berlin Chamber Orchestra, Budapest Wind Ensemble
Chopin, Favorite Piano Works , performed by Vladimir Ashkenazy
George Winston, Plains
Benny Goodman, Ken Burns Jazz
Miles Davis, Kind of Blue
Oscar Peterson, Jazz 'Round Midnight
Okay, given those CDs, what do you think would be good CDs to buy for him that he would really like? Thanks for the recommendations!
Since your dad seems to like jazz, I'd recommend the Thelonius Monk album "Monk's Dream". It's very good jazz that isn't super demanding, yet has that wonderful eccentric quality that makes Monk special. And it's superb sounding, too.
