I enter this day overwhelming thankful for my musical community, who do so much to inspire me, teach me. I have a big, loving family with whom I am spending this day, but I am doubly blessed to have an even bigger musical family all over the country, and indeed the world.

By Thanksgiving, I’m well into listening to Christmas music, which is too bad – there is so much excellent music perfectly suited Thanksgiving. Please enjoy this Thanksgiving playlist as you prepare your own Thanksgiving.

(As always, I welcome more suggestions to add to this playlist.)
