Gettin’ Moody With Devin: Feeling The Need To Clean


A playlist for those needing a little something to get through the arduous task of making a living space livable.

Lester Young, “Stardust,” Lester Young With The Oscar Peterson Trio

If only all the dust on your shelves were stardust, you wouldn’t have to wipe it up. But, alas.

Roy Hargrove, "Ms. Garvey, Ms. Garvey," Emergence

Crank up this one and vacuum!


Clifford Brown, “The Scene is Clean,” Clifford Brown And Max Roach At Basin Street

Here’s your victory song once you’re all done. Run and frolic!
