Make Yourself Comfortable

Make Yourself Comfortable

Playing tracks by

Sarah Vaughan with Hugo Peretti & His Orchestra, Quartetto Cetra, Joe 'Mr Piano' Henderson, Mr Acker Bilk with The Leon Young String Chorale, Roger Williams and more.

While digging in the dusty 50 cent crates in the The Record Store in Berlin, I came across a 7" that prompted me to write a note, which reads: “'make yourself comfortable', open with Sarah Vaughan tune, with the theme being ‘schmaltz orchestral soundtrack’”.
Much of what you hear in this mix was found either in Germany in the summer of 2013, or in Oxfam Music on Byres Road in Glasgow. The only exception to this is Rotary Connection's Turn Me On, which I bought in Sounds of the Universe in 2005 for the flip, which is a cover of Bob Dylan's Like a Rolling Stone."

Excellent compilation with some great records put together with some craftmanship. Now that's what I call ambient music. The BBC need look no further for a replacement for David Jacobs.

Thank you for the kind words! Just drop the beeb a line for me, that'd be great.

Everytime I listen to 'Fascination', it reminds me Billy Wilder's 'Love in the Afternoon' and the legendary Audrey Hepburn whistling the tune after that. For many reasons, I really like 'Make Yourself Comfortable', and mainly the tracks 1, 7, 10, 11 & 12.
