Thomas Wilkins: 56, music director of the Omaha Symphony and principal guest conductor of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra

"I'm a HUGE James Taylor [pictured] fan ... and I know the lyrics of everything he's recorded hard to pick a favorite from his works BUT .. 'The Secret of Life' / 'Into This Light' / 'If I Keep My Heart Out of Sight.' I also love Willie Nelson's 'Blue Eyes Cryin in the Rain,' Miles Davis, anything from the 'Four & More' album, John Coltrane -- 'Naima,' Lyle Lovett -- 'If I Had a Boat.'
