It depends on my mood. If I'm in an agressive mood and want to really burn it up I excercise to Dr. Dre's Chronic and Nativity in Black-Tribute to Black Sabbath. If I'm in a good upbeat energetic mood I like Janet Jackson's last cd, Snoop, or Tu Pac. If I'm feeling nostalic and like visiting some old friends I listen to some real good Motown, James Brown, Marvin Gaye, Aretha, Glady's, Sly & the Family Stone...so many good ones. I always add some mellow ones at the end for stretching. Usually it's something instumental and acoustic. This is the current favorites..I'm probably going to mix it up soon.

Depends on my mood. Usually, while running (indoors; outdoors I go without, as I like to be able to hear what is going on around me) I listen to New Wave stuff, or old (as in, pre-1990) punk. Today I worked out to the Go Go's. If I'm pissy or upset, industrial music usually does the trick for me. The main thing is finding music with a good beat to help set your pace to.

I like to listen to jazz ... the trio/quartet/quintet kind. Since I play bass, I like to really focus on the basslines of songs that my own trio plays and try to get ideas for my own playing.

I like Diana Krall (John Clayton or Paul Keller on bass), Oscar Peterson (Ray Brown or Orsted Pederson on bass), and the likes. Listening and focusing on the music really makes it easy for me to knock-out a couple miles on the treadmill in no time.
