Funny how things work out I sort of had plans to put up something tonight by one of my favorite Jazz ladies, a rarity because she plays an instrument (the piano) rather than being a vocalist.
Then Tina and I went out to run some errands and Chet Baker was on the XM Real Jazz station singing, "Funny Valentine" in that mellow as codeine cough syrup voice of his and blowing some warm full honey golden horn.
On the way home after dinner Real Jazz had: A Night At Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola: Rene Marie
Prior to this I was unfamiliar with Rene Marie. She is someone who should be better known, a real gem in a world of shiny plastic baubles.
As for the lady I was going to feature... Maybe some Saturday night jazz piano is in this Blog's future.
