I received my cd from GreatBallofFire on Monday night.  It was really good timing after a pretty bad few days and is appreciated very much!

I like the nostalgic cover and title and my favorite color is pink, so it's perfect for me!  Wink

I think maybe she is going to send me a playlist at a later date, so I can't post it now. 
It is a really great jazz mix though- with some songs that I'm familiar with, but not these versions and other totally new ones to me.  That's what's so great about jazz:  you can hear the same song done a thousand different ways.

Thanks again Kristina, I love the cd!

I know she's been very busy lately, so hopefully she won't mind if I post the cds I sent her.

Here they are with a little note and a couple sheets of stickers:

I tried to vary the jazz and blues pretty equally, but anyway here are the playlists:
1) In A Sentimental Mood-Duke Ellington   
2) The Thrill Is Gone-B.B. King   
3) At Last-Etta James
4) She Caught The Katy & Left Me A Mule To Ride- Taj Mahal
5) St. Louis Blues- Louis Armstrong
6) John Hardy-   Leadbelly   
7) Jive At Five-   Count Basie
8: Got My Mojo Working-   Muddy Waters
9) So What- Miles Davis
10) Well, Well, Well- Ben Harper & The Blind Boys Of Alabama
11) Work Song   - Nina Simone
12) Parchman Farm Blues- Bukka White
13) Like Someone In Love- John Coltrane
14) Where Did You Sleep Last Night- Leadbelly
15) Ne Me Quitte Pas- Nina Simone
16) Farther On Down The Road-Taj Mahal
17) Under a Blanket of Blue- Louis Armstrong & Ella Fitzgerald    *seems like everyone included a different song from this duo!
18) Frankie- Mississippi John Hurt
19) Take Five- The Dave Brubeck Quartet
20) Tell Mamma- Janis Joplin

1) Johnny Too Bad- Taj Mahal
2) Gone With The Wind- Art Tatum, Ben Webster, Red Callender, & Bill Douglass
3) The Girl From Ipanema   - Stan Getz & Joo Gilberto
4) Gin House Blues- Nina Simone
5) The Mooche- Duke Ellington
6) Didn't Old John Cross The Water-   Leadbelly
7) I Love Paris-   Ella Fitzgerald
8: Black Snake Moan- Blind Lemon Jefferson
9) Imitation Of A Kiss- The Jazz Passengers with Deborah Harry
10) Ball And Chain- Janis Joplin
11) Theme From Samson And Delilah- Nina Simone
12) La Vie En Rose- Louis Armstrong
13) Take A Giant Step- Taj Mahal
14) I'm A Steady Rollin' Man- Robert Johnson
15) Kojo No Tsuki- Lee Konitz
16) Texas Woman Blues- Taj Mahal
17) Star Dust- Django Reinhardt & Coleman Hawk
18) If I Can't Have You- Etta James & Harry Fuqua

I've really enjoyed looking at everyone's playlists, that's really a lot of jazz between us all!  Thanks again for such a great swap nushy!! Smiley

I received mine over the weekend...thank you so much jnaos and bethyg. 

Unfortunately, I was so eager to play the one that Bethyg sent me that I forgot to take a pic prior to playing it and somehow the label got stuck in my cd player and ripped off.  I am soooo sorry I don't have pics.  Do you have any bethy?  It was an awesome cd with a bunch of White Stripes songs on it that I love. 

I also received from Jnaos who made an incredible cd holder and went way and above what the swap called for.  I love the Vonda cd...I loved her on Ally McBeal!  For some reason, I completely suck at the imaging thingy on here, so please see my blog www.whiskeychica.blogspot.com to see the awesome pics!

i do actually have a pic for such an occurrence! however there is a catch- i made two slightly different covers based on a few sketches i did a while back. I'm not sure which i sent to who! anyways I'll post both so please don't label me bragging!
...i am proud of them however
here they are:

I'm wondering which i sent to whom now- i decided it'd be a fun surprise though.

I received from FRAUGHT yesterday!  She sent TWO cds, and the tracklists are awesome.  I meant to bring them along to work so that I could transpose the lists, but, well, it was early and I hadn't had coffee.... so I didn't bring them.  But, I do have photos!!

The cloth cd holder and the cd cover:

and the cds she decorated!  So cool!!

Please excuse the blinding flash reflection... the sun doesn't rise in Ohio until like 7:30, and unfortunately I am awake way before then....   Undecided

But, this swap was awesome!  Thank you krajackex and FRAUGHT for the super music, and thanks nushybum for organizing!!!  Next we should do an "obscure jazz subgenre" swap.   Grin

To those who got my packages: I am sorry. Due to technical difficulty, my darling bf had to burn the cd's on his 'puter, and it never occured to him to save the playlists! He's a computer genius however, and I'm trying to convince him to attempt to find it in the great beyond of his GIANT hard drive.

PS Spiderdust.... I LOOOOOOVE THE CD'S!

Great-  It would be awesome to have the playlists and know what I'm listening to, but if you can't do it, it's no biggie.  It's about the music anyway.  Smiley

And I'm so glad you like your cds!

It looks like my cd from qt37 has finally shown up.

Here is the pic and playlist:

My Romance   ??
Fly Me to the Moon   Frank Sinatra
April in Paris   Frank Sinatra
I'm in the Mood for Love   ??
I've Got You Under My Skin   Frank Sinatra
Luck Be a Lady Tonight   Frank Sinatra
The Lady is a Tramp   Frank Sinatra
Summer Wind   Frank Sinatra
Unforgettable   Nat King Cole & Natalie Cole
Have You Ever Loved   ??
Lucky You   ??
Can't Hide Love   ??
Smooth Jazz   ??
Cabaret   ??

Thanks for the music qt37.  Smiley

I received my cd from my wonderful angel, bubba*tink.

I have to say, I love everything about it!  The cover art and colors, and especially the music.  It is perfectly to my taste.

All of the songs save a couple are new to me.  I'm really *jazzed* to have more Django.  Cheesy

Thanks so much bubba*tink, the music is greatly appreciated and will be played often.
