David Bowie ~ I’d Rather Be High (Venetian Mix / Wasted Edit)
Once again I chime in the healing powers of music…my music, your music our music….that and love got this ol’Geezer through one of the roughest weeks and now facing a new week I know just what kind of strength is required of us! Grins…..and this little ditty from Mr. Bowie is a treat too!
a fine bit of machine meets man photog work….always a must for Rebloggin’ Sunday!
Steve McQueen - Suit and Tie
Snow Fall ~ Ahmad Jamal (Ahmad Jamal Trio)
This old chestnut created by Claude Thornhill is always a breath of refreshing air over all the super played out over worked usual suspects at Xmas. In fact a dear tumblr amigo says there are no bad renditions of it at all. But this take by Jamal is superb beyond all counts, his great unexpected phrasing and the subtle marching snare work of Vernel Fournier make’s it! So on that note we have our Sunday Got Jazz for Christmas selection from the Flimwell Papers’ Music Corner! Peace, love and salted nuts, y’all!
Tom Waits ~ It’s Alright With Me
Yeah, many happy returns Mr. Waits!
Bee Gees ~ First of May
I suppose it’s just the reference to ‘Christmas trees’ but I always play this Bee Gees’ tune around Christmas…another one that is rather Blue but fits after a long day just trying to walk to the corner and back to post the Xmas cards.
another one worthy of the Rebloggin’ Sunday mantra……love it and pass it forward….
Someday At Christmas ~ Stevie Wonder
Just a wish that comes around and around —- as war comes on spinnin’ I still believe that it can become a reality. Soul sounds like this do belong on the Christmas playlist….even if I do post it every year.
What a truly great man! It can be said that all of mankind is diminished by his passing! But he leaves us with the philosophy and template to raise up all mankind!……..and how relieved I am that the great man has been released from what was arguably another form of imprisonment and allowed to embark on his final journey.
