For my first-ever playlist, you get jazzy songs for a smoky midtown bar, or for shoes-off slowdances on the rug after the dinner party’s all gone home.  It’s a little heavy on the strings and Dinah Washington, but I didn’t mind that all too much — so I hope you don’t either.  Click play to enjoy!

Experimenting this evening with 8tracks, which I found via the Rugby Style Blog.  The songs may not play in the exact order above, but they’re all in there.
