whoaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa - no Neville Brothers, Louis Armstrong, or Pete Fountain? And since your readers are young I'd throw in some Harry Connick, Jr and Trombone Shorty ...

Glad you gals had a good time!

Of course! Where were you when I was making my playlist?!?! Mack the Knife is one of my all-time faves as is any Harry Connick, Jr.
