Old Records Young Kids Should Hear

I was listening to Jonathan Schwartz while making lunch in the kitchen this afternoon as I often do on a Sunday and he suggested that in order to insure that the cannon of 20th century song is passed into the 20th century and beyond, it is best for children to be exposed to this great music at an early age so that means something to them.  It got me thinking about what I might consider to be a short list of records for such a mission. Here it is:

1. Ella & Louis

2. Sinatra/Basie

3. Blossom Dearie Jazz Masters 51

4. Nat King Cole : After Midnight

5. Fred Astaire/Oscar Peterson
