If you're looking for jazz songs about food for Thanksgiving, look no further: Ross Eustis over at SFJAZZ has put together the ultimate playlist of jazz songs about food, and buddy, it's three hours long. Just the right amount of time between family arrivals and dinnertime, while the kitchen is bustling, everyone's lounging about in the living room and you need music to play.

Of course, jazz and food have a long history together. One of my favorite tidbits about jazz trumpet godfather Louis Armstrong is that he signed all his letters "Red Beans & Ricely Yours," which, let's face it, is pretty damn smooth.

Find your Thanksgiving songs about food below (if the playlists don't load, try here), and happy eatin'.
