UPLifting Mix 002: Save the Last Mix for Me

by Michelle Vo

Here at The UP Lab, we’ve decided to retire our weekly UPlifting Music Series and upgrade into a more nostalgic and sharable medium: mixes. Every month, we will share a new playlist with songs that encompass a certain theme. These mixes can be inspired by submissions, so if there is a particular song or genre that you would like to hear in the next playlist, please check out our UPlifting Music page to share a track or suggestion with us.

‘Tis the season for holiday decorating, and finals! December’s mix will help soothe any finals-related stress, with classics running from Satchmo to Thelonious Monk. And when you’re done with exams, listen again while enjoying the chilly weather in a warm home. It’s time to take it back a few decades to a jazzier time, and slow dance our way into the holidays.
