Music for a Stormy Day

If you’ve been glued to The Weather Channel this week, you’ve heard a lot of smooth jazz, but never the whole song! To hear more from Ball State's Music Collection, go to the Media Finder for Music (Non-Classical) and select Jazz from the 1980s or 1990s. For that Weather Channel ambiance, check out Pat Metheny, David Benoit, Hugh Masakela, the Brecker Brothers, Bob James, Chuck Mangione, David Sanborn, Spyro Gyra, Grover Washington, or Lee Ritenour. And the ultimate 1970s-80s jazz group: Weather Report.

You can also search artists as "authors" in CardCat, or songs as keywords.  The Weather Channel posts their playlists here.  The Music Collection has compact discs by many of the artists listed.

If you'd rather ride out the storms with a good movie musical, try Stormy Weather, The Wizard of Oz, or Singin' in the Rain!
