Searching for sultry jazz music [Archive] - MobileRead Forums

[Archive] Searching for sultry jazz music Lounge
Do you have any recommendations for sultry jazz music? In particular I'm searching for something that's similar to "What you feel (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aFsFnzOCbKw)" from Buffy the Vampire Slayer's episode Once More With Feeling (the song itself isn't that great, but I like the style and I don't have any other examples at hand). 
Sharrock's insight:

I found this site after searching for the same, sultry jazz music like Nina Simone's "Feeling Good".

'The Most Significant And Least Appreciated Development In The History Of Our Species'

'The Most Significant And Least Appreciated Development In The History Of Our Species' | Writing, Research, Applied Thinking and Applied Theory: Solutions with Interesting Implications, Problem Solving, Teaching and Research driven solutions | Scoop.it

According to prominent Harvard psychologist Steven Pinker, statistics reveal dramatic reductions in war deaths, family violence, racism, rape, murder and all sorts of mayhem.

In his book, Pinker writes: "The decline of violence may be the most significant and least appreciated development in the history of our species."

And it runs counter to what the mass media is reporting and essentially what we feel in our guts.

Pinker and other experts say the reality is not painted in bloody anecdotes, but demonstrated in the black and white of spreadsheets and historical documents. They tell a story of a world moving away from violence.

Sharrock's insight:

Things are not as bad as the media is reporting. But improvements must continue to be made.
