Fans of former President Bill Clinton will soon be able to enjoy some of his favorite recordings in the comfort of their own homes. The Bill Clinton Collection: Selections From the Clinton Music Room, the first of several planned albums, tilts toward such jazz classics as John Coltrane's "My One and Only Love," Miles Davis' "My Funny Valentine" and Zoot Sims' "Summertime."

But will there be any party music on future compilations? "President Clinton hasn't picked the songs yet for the subsequent albums," says Clinton Foundation president Skip Rutherford, "but in all likelihood there will be `some R&B and rock included` because he likes a wide variety of music."
