This is a topic we take seriously: what music to play while cooking, and what to play during dinner. They are two different stories.
Last year we put together a list for Apartment Therapy and Maxwell published it again today. That list considered cocktail music, dinner music, and dance music.
Here's the dinner list:Chris Connor: Sings Gershwin • Miles Davis: Kinda Blue • Dave Brubeck: Take Five • Bebel Gilberto: Tanto Tempo • John Coltrane: Ballads • Sufjan Stevens: Seven Swans • Chet Baker Sings • Spain: Blue Moods of Spain • Keith Jarrett: The Melody at Night, With You
But what about cooking? What do you like to listen to when you cook? What gets you in the mood? We'll publish the list next week, so write in before Monday.
