    Your taste and mine vary extremely widely on this topic, but I am glad to see Jill Scott and Maxwell on the list. The number of times I’ve listened to Comin’ from Where I’m From is close to 400 at this point, but to each his own.

    “Comin’ from Where I’m From” will be the day’s listening project.
