Album Suggestions from March 2012

In the last three weeks, CAS has had three events in three different cities: our regular monthly in London, a one-off event in Glasgow and the launch of our regular monthlies in New York City. These are three great music cities and below are the suggestions made by the attendees. Can you spot any differences between the cities or is great music just great music irrespective of location. You decide (and don’t forget to read the additional notation about Norah Jones!).
