During family get togethers or when having people in the house, I have difficulty in finding appropriate ‘background’ music which does sound good, and is musically interesting enough. Lots of jazz/rock/pop music asks for attention to be able to follow the music. I tend always to put on the wrong CD which I labelled as ‘easy digestible’ which than developes to be disturbing for most people (apart from me…)
I do appreciate John Scofield, Pat Metheny, Bill Frisell for example, but hey even their ‘quietest’ records can come on too strong/wild.
Normally my musical taste range from Allan Holdsworth - Frank Zappa - Alex Machacek - or guitar related jazz rock… that doesn’t help either.
Please suggest some tasteful music that can serve as background music too.
