Classic Arts News   CD to Feature Bill Clinton's Jazz Favorites
The Clinton Presidential Foundation will release a compilation of former president Bill Clinton's favorite jazz recordings this fall, the Associated Press reports.

The album, titled The Bill Clinton Collection: Selections From the Clinton Music Room, will include John Coltrane's "My One and Only Love," Miles Davis's "My Funny Valentine," and Zoom Sims' "Summertime," as well as non-jazz selections such as Judy Collins' "Chelsea Morning," famously the source of Clinton's daughter's name.

Clinton recently heard a demo version of the CD at the Clinton Museum Store in Little Rock, Arkansas, where it will be sold. Connie Fails, who runs the store, told the AP, "He took the demo and by the time he got to the golf course, all the windows of the SUV were down and he was blasting it."
