Pop Song List

“While Jazz Music is my absolute favorite, I like all music so long as it’s done well. I enjoy the singing experience and sounds of various genres of music. Some of the vocal disciplines required for contemporary music are different from that which I use for Jazz. That alone makes for a whole lot of fun …and a whole lot of great music!” – Lynn Ross
