    I don't know a thing about Eastern music. Do you want Western recommendations? What is the mood? Is it formal, casual, young, festive, serious, etc.? Do you want classical European? Whatever you do, don't have Pachelbel's Canon. It is worn out.

    Western recommendation is great . The basic tone is serious, but casual&young are also necessery. Red carpet time,the rhythm need to suit to walk,at the same time,who has already enter the hall,need some light background sounds,like some piano melody.:)this is first part.

    Describing music is like trying to describe color.

    Among classical, my favorite is Mozart, piano concertos #27 (particularly the 2nd and 3rd movements - larghetto and allegro) and #23 with Vladimir Askenazy at piano. I want those two movements for my funeral.

    Another really common classical is J.S. Bach, Brandenburg concertos 3,4, &5.

    Horowitz did a spectacular Scarlatti in vinyl records. The CD's are OK, but not quite as good. It is not background music. Just listen to any Scarlatti and you will know what I mean.

    For mainstream jazz, almost anything by Benny Goodman is good. Monty Alexander has a very good "Echoes of Jilly's" (Frank Sinatra's hangout in New Yourk). Lots of big band jazz options (Miller, Shaw, etc.) and of course many tunes from the 1960's era.

    For female jazz, I like Billie Holiday and Lena Horne. Of the two, I like Lena Horne better -- I believe she is from Cleveland. Just listen to her "You're my thrill" and "Good for nothin' Joe" for a taste.

    For pure fun and a smile on everyone's face*, get Johnny Costa's "Flying Fingers."

    John

    *Edit: BTW, Johnny Costa was the pianist for Mr. Rogers children's TV show in the USA. I don't want you to be embarrassed, but if you like the music, who cares. Another favorite is Eubie Blake's album, "Tricky Fingers," jazz.

    Finally, how could I forget. You need to hear Fat's Waller (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fats_Waller). He typifies New Orleans saloon music. All of his tunes start with a similar series of high notes. It is quite characteristic.

    Since I am going nowhere today, I decided to listen to some of my recommendations and realized that getting albums is at least 10 years out of date. I do not have links to all of my recommendations, but here is one to Eubie Blake (he was almost 100 years old at the time of the interview):

    http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=123385170

    There is a lot of talk and discussion on that link, but at least there is a sample of his music. Here are links to the actual album I have. Unfortunately, I could not find any free downloads of its tracks.

    Album:
