Bow to the queens, friends.
These are the first ladies of jazz, the original divas. There's a pretty wide selection of songs here, from heartbreaking chest-achy stuff to more pop-infused swing for pretending you are in a romantic comedy. This is the perfect soundtrack for a dinner party, or sobbing into your coffee, or gazing into the eyes of a really beautiful girl. It also makes anything instantly classy. Play this mix, and eating leftovers in your underwear is instantly classy.
