Here are three great albums for a romantic dinner:

1. Roy Hargrove with Strings – Moment to Moment on Verve Records

2. Miles Davis – Love Songs on Columbia/Legacy

3. Chet Baker & Strings – Columbia/Legacy

Yes, all three are trumpet players. I love the sound of the trumpet. Only one of the above is still alive – and in my opinion the best trumpet player alive today: Roy Hargrove. You will marvel at his tone and ability. Put the three albums on a CD changer, open a bottle of wine, light some candles and enjoy…..

PS: Most of the Miles Davis pieces on this compilation were recorded in the Fifties and Chet Baker’s album was originally released in 1954 – all on Columbia Records. In those days even the head of Columbia was a musician. Now it seems all of the record companies are run by business men instead.
