Halloween Jazz For This Spooky Season

Yes, even jazz celebrates Halloween as witnessed by this list of tracks that seemed to appear on several lists. 

  1. Ding-Dong! The Witch Is Dead - Ella Fitzgerald 
  2. Mack The Knife - Bobby Darin or Louis Armstrong (you do realize this is about a serial killer)
  3. I Put A Spell On You - Nina Simone 
  4. Miles Runs The Voodoo Down - Miles Davis 
  5. Nightmare - Artie Shaw 
  6. That Old Black Magic - Dave Brubeck or Mel Torme 
  7. Stalking Monster - Duke Ellington 
  8. Witchcraft - Frank Sinatra 
  9. I Don't Stand A Ghost Of A Chance With You - Zoot Sims, Eddie Lockjaw Davis & Oscar Peterson 
  10. The Ghost Of Smokey Joe - Cab Calloway (Big Bad Voodoo Daddy has a pretty good version of this, as well)

There are so many more but this is a good start towards haunting your playlist for this Hallow's Eve. :) 

Give the Cab Calloway track on the list a listen here.
