AllMusic Review by

Starbucks has been doing these little playlist samplers for a while now, and like the others, this one is a carefully considered set, with 14 tracks of gently stimulating music designed to be listened to in those little solitary moments that start each day. It’s a smooth but varied run, with sides ranging from Buddy Holly's “Everyday” to Harry Nilsson's version of “Mother Nature’s Son,” “Peace Piece” by the Kronos Quartet, and a percolating sax workout of “La Rosita” from Coleman Hawkins and Ben Webster, among other highlights.
