Writer Mike Zwerin recently published some lists in the The International Herald Tribune of recommended jazz and rock music to take with you into the bunker when King Kong has destroyed your city. (In the past these were called desert island records.) The Lewis Music Library already had several of the suggested titles, which ranged from Paul Simon’s Graceland to the Modern Jazz Quartet.
