    I'd say, "Look into Harry Connick, Jr." as to your above recommendations, if you're just buying CDs ...

    ... if you're compiling a few "mix" CDs yourself, here's MY contribution ...

    ... it's an instrumental piano medley, cocktail party style, of most of the songs off of the "LIFE" album by The Cardigans. Try it, you'll like it ... and it's almost 16 minutes long, so that's 1/4 of an hour right there that you won't have to worry about!

    "Cocktail Party, Bloody Cocktail Party" by The Cardigans
