|it' a jazz thing|
There was a time...long ago,
before I tied the knot with Mr. H,
that I loved to hang out in piano bars.
The scene was Manhattan and I would
meet up with friends to sip on a cocktail or two
and listen to great music...mostly jazz.
It has been a long time since I 'lounged'
and I had forgotten about those days in Manhattan
until I heard the music of Cecile McLorin Salvant.
She brought it all back.
Chateau Mango is rocking to
the jazzy beat today of Cecile and much more.
I thought a few of you might enjoy the beat too!
(Heather...this one is for you!)
|You can view in iTunes here and her website here|
and more jazzy beats with...
Billie Holiday ...Body and Soul
Cassandra Wilson ... Red Guitar
Joshua Redman... The Folks Who Live on the Hill
Elaine Elias...Girl Talk
Mary Stallings... Dream Dancing
Gretchen Parlato...Holding Back the Years
and my all time favourite
Nina Simone.. My Baby Just Cares for Me
( Mr. H...this one is for you xx)
