Uplifting

A podcast of tunes that are, in my opinion uplifting. Clifford Brown's Joy Spring and Metheny's First Circle are my picks to uplift. Also, music from Noah Baerman and Jen Allen helped inspire this playlist. New music from Noah Preminger, Kurt Elling and Renee Rosnes are featured here as well. Dylan covers from Elling and Ballantine are here too.
