Sometimes when listening to music I find a common thread through some of the most unexpected songs. I was surprised by how the Jazz, House, and Brazilian worked so well together as I was building this mix. 

Songs that I never thought I would be able to work into a mix and make it sound good, like Soil & "Pimp" Sessions' "A.I.E." and Miles Davis's "Spanish Key" suddenly sounded good when surrounded by dance tunes.

This is such an eclectic selection of songs that I was thinking, what kind of person would hear this and think this was supposed to go together? What kind of life do they lead where they hear music like played regularly. It music be incredible. Then I realized I was talking about myself. This is what's on my iPod as I walk to work every day.

So, the title of the mix is a bit of a misnomer. It would be nice to hear songs played together like this on local radio or at an event here in Macon. However, I am sure people everywhere dream of hearing better music wherever they are.

I hope you enjoy.
