Policy Soundtrack

In an effort to get the hours in before a quick trip out of town (and not have to take PTO), I have been getting up early in the morning, arriving at the office before 7AM and leaving late. As I do that, I am bringing breakfast to eat at work and drinking coffee, which I never do (I even bring my own 1/2 and 1/2 because I would not get caught dead drinking coffeemate)... generating caffeine buzzes and crashes (not something I am used to) and energy for writing policy, guidelines and proposals. Since writing policy, guidelines and proposals is not my natural state of being, I have found certain tunage fuels the process, along with aforementioned caffeine.
Here are some good albums I am using for inspiration as I write policy and procedures and other such documents:

Charles Mingus

Brian Wilson

Bon Iver

Max Richter
The Blue Notebooks (my writing fave)

that mingus is one of my favorite jazz albums...

and if you can get your hands on an original version of 'surf's up' that's just brian and a piano, its a hundred times better than the polished up version on that smile record.
