Mix Tape: I don't trifle with mixes anymore. It's a bother. I have a consultant in New York who makes them for me. I'm not sure if I have a favorite, but if I had to pick, it would be the one with the "Batman" theme song, Nina Simone's "Love Me or Leave Me," Mingus's "Better Get Hit in Yo Soul," several choice Enoch Light cuts, "Last Night I Had a Dream" by Randy Newman, a great reggae cover of the Beatles' "Don't Let Me Down" (artist unknown, to me), Peggy Lee's "Is That All There Is?" and a seven-minute workout on the jazz standard "There Will Never Be Another You" played on a Hammond B-3.
