Something for the weekend

Just heard this online at KCSM, the Bay Area Jazz Station. It's 2.30 a.m. over there, but I often find their lazy late-night moods match mine on a slow Saturday morning. Lots of wonderful things about this - the Hoagy Carmichael tune, Oscar Peterson on piano, Satchmo's growl. But just marvel at the purity of Ella's voice...

Excellent taste my dear sir. I have just listened to this with my four year-old daughter nodding along.

Glad to be of service, Rob. Our teenage offspring's liking for jazz and Sixties soul probably has a lot to do with early exposure to our CD collection - so you're forming your daughter's tastes for life...
