Around the world in 80 minutes

Recommended Posts

I had an idea to create a mix CD with songs that mention various places around the globe. Ordinarily I spend days obessing over mixes, but to get the ball rolling, I thought I would throw one out.

A Night In Tunisia - Art Blakey - 9.50 - (A Night At Birdland - Volume 1)

Appointment In Ghana - Jackie McLean - 6.95 - (Jackie's Bag)

April In Paris - Coleman Hawkins - 3.10 - (Body & Soul)

Autumn In New York - Bud Powell - 2.85 - (The Amazing Bud Powell - Volume 2)

Basra - Pete La Roca - 9.92 - (Basra)

Calcutta Cutie - Horace Silver - 8.43 - (Song For My Father)

Dear Old Stockholm - Miles Davis - 4.17 - (Round About Midnight)

Home Is Africa - Horace Parlan - 8.77 - (The Complete Blue Note Sessions)

Israel - Miles Davis - 2.25 - (Birth Of The Cool)

Monaco - Kenny Dorham - 5.55 - (Round About Midnight At The Cafe Bohemia)

New Orleans - Carmell Jones - 5.73 - (Mosaic Select)

Rio - Lee Morgan - 6.17 - (The Procrastinator)

St. Thomas - Sonny Rollins - 6.77 - (Saxophone Collossus)

I'd be interested in hearing some other suggestions for tracks to include.
