Since September 2010, this blog has recorded the journey of this middle-aged man as I attempt to listen to all the music in my CD collection. CDs revisited in their entirety from start to finish - no skipping tracks, no shuffle. CDs only - no vinyl, no tapes, no downloads. And just as CD technology (and the album format itself) becomes obsolete. I'm no music critic, just a music junkie with too much time on my hands.

Rick Braun - Body And Soul (1997)
A used smooth jazz CD I picked up a few years to have some background music at work. For my tastes, this suits the bill perfectly, although I guess it would also be good late night with an adult beverage. I generally don't like trumpet smooth jazz, but I have to admit that I'm usually pleasantly surprised and pleased when I pick up a Braun CD.
Peak on the US Billboard Top 200 chart: Did not chart
Tracks: My picks are Notorious, Long Tall Judy, Angel, and Coolsville. I've often stated my dislike for a token vocal track on an otherwise instrumental album; we get that on this disc with Love Will Find A Way. Needless to say, I'll pass on that one.
Personal Memory Associated with this CD: None
Previously revisited for the blog:
Shake It Up (2000)
