The Anthony Chris Granaghan Trifecta: Jazz, Chill, Rock

When we made our official call for “Mood Music” playlists, we were overwhelmed by one Melodysiac’s trio of tune fixes. Anthony Chris Granaghan decided to submit three different playlists for music lovers who adjust to mood changes with the medicine of audio.

When we made our official call for “Mood Music” playlists, we were overwhelmed by one Melodysiac’s trio of tune fixes. Anthony Chris Granaghan decided to submit three different playlists for music lovers who adjust to mood changes with the medicine of audio.

First, Granaghan shares the “All That Jazz” playlist for easing headaches and day-to-day stresses. He composed the list (Herbie Hancock, Miles Davis, Charles Mingus, Louis Armstrong, Return to Forever) while pre-gaming for a weekly jazz party. From his research, he discovered that he’s quite fond of Oscar Peterson, and that jazz music really hits the spot with its soothing therapy. Granaghan calls this playlist “the right tracks to cool my soul.”

Next up on Granaghan’s playlist trifecta is his delivery of chakra-balancing chill tracks, named his “LoungyDub” collection. Granaghan shares some of his favorite nuances of electronic, Indian music, incredible female vocals and avant garde sounds (Zero 7, Papadosio, Thievery Corporation) to “stimulate the mind and to help pass the time.”

Lastly, Granaghan explores his “guilty pleasure” through the “Class of Rock” playlist, one he admits he’s not sure he should be sharing. But, what Granaghan might not realize is that we all harbor those feelings at one time or another. But as the saying goes, “sharing is caring.” Stream this bad boy (KISS, Queen, AC/DC Rush) which was inspired while watching Almost Famous. “I was hurting for some solid rock and roll licks, without all the bells and whistles,” he says.

We hope you enjoy these shares, from head to toe. “Music is not just for the ears anymore,” Granaghan concludes.
