Stranded On a Desert Island Picks! 

What albums would our Jaymz Bee need to take with him, if he were stranded on a desert island? 

The albums he can’t live without?  

Jaymz Bee's selections include:

Deodato - Prelude
My "go-to" LP for cocktail parties since the last 70's

Miles Davis - Miles Ahead
Birth of cool, cookin ... just give me one Miles on that island please!

Ryuichi Sakamoto - Smoochy
Japanese tango, pop, classical ... so much variety

Ennio Morricone - Greatest Hits
If I can only have ONE album, this is the one

Melody Gardot - Currency Of Man
I won't feel alone on the island hearing her sweet voice

Ian Dury & The Blockheads - Do It Yourself
Hilarious lyrics and jazz meets funk ... brilliant production!

Ry Cooder - Bop Till You Drop
Good for the soul

Alex Pangman - Have A Little Fun
Because smiling and dancing is good for you

Burl Ives - Bear Family Collection
I'm a cheater, this is a box set with so much stuff

Benjamin Zander Philharmonic Orchestra - Mahler 5th Symphony
Most complicated and beautiful piece ever, and what a great version!
