Jazz Piano Playlist on Spotify

This demonstrates how to integrate a Spotify playlist and some simple cover art (generated by DALL-E). It is an emerging collection of my favorite piano jazz performances, mostly in trio/quartet format with some solo ones thrown in! Feel free to subscribe to it!
Jazz Piano Playlist on Spotify

This posting is a bit of a test to see how well Ghost integrates with various things I use in my day-to-day life. As I'm really into music, I wanted to see whether I could share various lists easily, e.g. Spotify.

In this posting, I am demonstrating a couple of things. First, I wanted to see whether I could make some simple cover artwork for my playlist using OpenAI's DALL-E. It is surprisingly effective. The biggest challenge was to get it to render my name properly. As the entire free world knows, my name is too long for my own good. (That's why my parents named me George with the hope of keeping things simple. I still end up having to spell that name far too often and we've had multiple famous George's in the USA.)

The other thing this is showing is how to embed a play list on this blogging platform. To my delight, I can simply copy the list from Spotify into a posting and (voila!) it just shows up. Lovely!
