Alternative Stage Music, Vol. 2

I didn't originally intend Volume 2 to center around lounge and jazz, but it just ended up that way. It's still good listening though, but the thematic concept's probably not as interesting. It seems that you could swing a dead cat and pretty easily hit 50 or 60 albums that revolve around lounge and jazz artists doing a Broadway compilation, so I don't think anybody really needs me to do one, but it's still fun. 'So and So Does Broadway!' has a pretty familiar ring, so this may not be the most interesting comp, but it's still good music nonetheless. And if you enjoy swinging a dead cat, by the way, I really hope you don't make a habit of reading this blog.

Enjoy!
