Music always makes us happier, or puts us in a festive mood
… let’s start to get jovial with A Jazz Inspired Halloween Playlist…
I LOVE Vince Guaraldi, and have always been a fan of “It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown” (thanks mum!). I have compiled a few of my favourite jazz inspired tracks here, which incorporate the spirit of Halloween on a less spooky scale.
Tracks range from classical jazz to the soundtrack from Practical Magic (yes Lime in the Coconut could be considered a Halloween delight). I’m a particular fan of “Nightmare” by Artie Shaw, due to my love for the “Aviator” soundtrack.
No, Monster Mash is not included.
