  1. fabulous track list…I adore Oscar Peterson, so glad to see him there.

    • I adore Oscar Peterson too. He was one of the greatest jazz pianists. Duke Ellington called him “Maharaja” which means in sanskrit King. I am glad that like the tracklist.

  2. Die überwiegende Zahl der Videos war für mich “nicht verfügbar”, aber egal, ich bin total froh über Theme from SWAT, hätte ich selber nie gefunden, Klasse! Werde es mit Theme from Shaft vergesellschaften. 😉 Auch Ironside wurde mir wieder in Erinnerung gebracht, war schön, das anzuhören.

    • Dankeschön. Das mit dem “nicht verfügbar” muss nicht sein. Einfach ein plug-in wie installieren und schon kann man die Videos anschauen.
      Schön, dass ich mit SWAT und Shaft Deinen Geschmack getroffen habe. Mir hat es Spaß gemacht die TV- und Filmmusik zusammen zu stellen.
      Herzliche Grüße
