@cosullivan if you have vlc you "probably" can call nvlc on the command line for the terminal version. I'd change to the directory you want to play and then:
$ nvlc *.mp3
@tomasino I'll give the nvlc *.mp3 command a try, thank you.
@cosullivan if you don't mind gui windows, just drop the "n".
$ vlc *.mp3
will launch VLC with a playlist of everything in the current directory that's an mp3
@cosullivan VLC should have no trouble opening individual audio files no matter where they are.
I guess it depends on what file suffixes you have i n there that you want to play. Music files without any suffix would be a problem, but in general, I'd do something like:
$ mplayer *wav *ogg
