What kind of music do you listen to while you cook?

Just thought it would be fun to see what a diverse listening crowd we have here.
I listen mostly to Jazz myself.

Oh man! I'm stuck in the 80's a lot, adore classical, think Bob Marley is good almost every day, and also like jazz *good jazz* and some contemporary. Lately I've been stuck on how cool Paul Anka became. He was the butt of many a joke, but lately came out with a swing album of old cover tunes. I'm telling ya, if you haven't heard it, you'll be missing out. Swing rocks!

I guess i should say that i listen to the *good jazz* (as well as newer country though) when the kids are home, like... Keiko Matsui, Stanley Clarke, Wayman Tysdale, Marcus Miller, Victor Wooten, Joyce Cooling, Boney James, Matt Garrison, Charles Mingus, Four Play and so on. When i'm usually home alone, i get the 70's/80's funk going on with Graham Central Station, Sly and the Family Stone, George Clinton, Jaco Pastorius, and so on and so on.

You have any good swing suggestions?

Anything is good. Sometimes I listen to metal, sometimes classical, sometimes newgrass. It depends what I'm cooking!

jkath, I adore hearing the 80's. But, I grew up listening to the oldies. My momma played her Oldies but Goodies every weekend when it was time to clean. I love hearing them too.

jkath's Paul Anka post inspired me to pull out some CD's I haven't listened to in ages (both are great artists doing something that's a little outside their usual style).

Pat Benatar's "True Love" (a pretty decent Blues album)
&
Boz Scaggs' "Come on Home" (another decent Blues album)

.

Country or oldies.

I don't see our choice - zydeco...swamp pop...I guess blues would come the closest. We like our zydeco!
