As I was giving up the search, I spotted something that just didn't belong. A CD titled "A Twist of Marley" was in among the Jazz. It turned out to be a jazz tribute to Bob Marley, by the infamous "Various Artists". I got it for her on a whim, and the shocking truth is that it is really quite good.
My favorite tracks are "Redemption Song", covered by Richard Bona and Michael Brecker and "Get Up Stand Up" covered by Lee Ritenour and Dave Grusin
