    Raylene Rankin has a good solid voice, but I like the words and tune to the song as well.
    I remember hearing that one somewhere...
    It has some of the same qualities you find in John Denver's music.

    You know, I used to very much dislike John Denver but have grown rather fond of his music over the years because he was really quite talented in his musicianship, and song writing. The lyrics and music for Annie's Song were totally awesome!.

    Well today, among others I've listened to Haydn's Creation, Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Steve Reich's Music for 18 Musicians, Miles Davis In a Quiet Way.

    All great. All have much to commend them.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    For today's listening pleasure I played "Giants of Jazz, Berlin 1971" - Dizzy Gillespie, Sonny Stitt, Thelonious Monk, Art Blakey, Kai Winding, et al. Probably the best jazz band EVER put together. Then was Stephane Grappelli w/ David Grisman, Gillespie's "Swing Low, Sweet Cadillac", Mahlathini and the Mahotella Queens "Mbaqanga", and finally, some Stan Getz.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!

    Great playlist.

    I saw Stephane Grapelli live in Birmingham in about 1988 when he was very elderly. He walked slowly onto the stage looking a little doddery. We thought he might have been past it - until he put his violin to his chin and started playing. The years dropped away and boy did he swing. One of the best nights ever.

    I never had that pleasure, but I did get to play with Juan Reynoso, "The Paganini of the Hot Lands" - a great Mexican traditional fiddler who passed away a couple of years ago. He was in his 80's when we met him. It would take awhile for him to warm up, but after a little bit, man could he bend that catgut!

    Anyway, for my commuting pleasure (after shoveling the snow out of my driveway this morning) I was listening to some classic Charlie "The Bird" Parker on the drive to work. It was recorded at Birdland w/ Gillespie and Mingus. Some great sessions!

    And I did get to see The Diz perform a number of times. Truly awesome! He must have had the most flexible cheeks in creation. They would balloon out when he blew, just like they were rubber! It looked funnier than heck, but man could he play that horn. Another classic act that will be hard to follow...
