Jazzy Places.

Jazzy Places
I started a list of Jazz songs with place names in the title. I put together a playlist on Grooveshark which will be broadcast whenever I'm on line. Thanks for listening. The playlist link is here. Feel free to make suggestions. I'll adding to the ever growing list. Written with a Lamy Safari fountain pen loaded with Waterman Havana brown color ink. on Staples 'Arc' Circa, Rollabind like notebook.
The Jazzy Place project is like a little story that begins to gather stuff momentum around it. For example. Yesterday, I was listening to The Nightfly by Donald Fagen. The first song on the album is I.G.Y and the second song is 'Green Flower Street'. Then I was listening to something, 'The Wind up Bird chronicles? It mentions Herb Albert's song with the place name but it was a stinker of a song. A walk in the Black Forrest is one of them. These songs don't have to have a real city or place names. For example, It could be "Highway Rider" by Brad Meldau, which is about a place and a journey.
Brad Meldau has an album with place names appropriately called 'Places'. Smooth jazz genera loves place names in there song titles.
