    I used to have a few “Mojo Club Dancefloor Jazz” compilations that were inoffensive without being insipid, no idea if you can still get them.

    Steve Reich – that’ll *really* drive ’em nuts! and the customers away..

    Don’t know your tastes, or staff’s or indeed customers, so I’d just plug what’s on in background while I work – which is either music radio (R3) or at the moment celtic folk – Julie Fowlis, Capercaillie; could chuck in some nice fiddle tunes too.

    Maybe even the Jan Garbarek / Hilliard collaboration – not that’s it’s just background, but good in its own right..

    Chap Hop wins! Get some Mr B in there as well!

    On a side note, try this lunacy;

    In our shop we listen to Smooth 70s quite a bit.
    Non offensive music ,no DJs and a rare advert.
    Have the scum bags come after you for licences to play music yet?

    Need to add some music to my cafe, current offerings of classic jazz, latin jazz and sprinkling of Quantic are going down well but the staff are going nuts over listening to the same musci every day,

    suggestions please..

    And Sabattum by Rondellus. A medieval tribute to Black Sabbath, covering the classic tracks on period instruments. In Latin. Actually, very nicely done.

    Anything by the Oregon Guitar Quartet.

    the Cafe is in the heart of touristsville Edinburgh and the staff do not really represent the typicall clientle I have done the “staff picks” thing and it got a bit out of hand… see list above for the typicall kind of results 🙂 We are also affiliated with The Edin Festival and so can’t have “pop” or “electronic” music as the Festival staff/lovies/patrons complain…Having sneaked Quantic in there is an achievement.

    Prize so far goes to McMoonter as that sounds worth trying. Free Coffee next time your in 🙂

    Senor Coconut and his Orchestra. sneak a bit of pop rock and electronica through the back door via some rather good latin rhythms.

    And not bloody jose Gonzalez.

    RUBEN Gonzalez. Serious suggestion. Amazing pianist, amazing musician. amazing person too, apparently. Might sound like yer typical hotel music to start with, but the more you listen, the more it unfolds. It’s beautiful.

    Introducing… Ruben Gonzalez. Been recording all his life, this is his debut album in his own name, recorded age 72.

    can’t have “pop” or “electronic” music as the Festival staff/lovies/patrons complain

    Hmmmmm…..
