Continuing on my theme of songs that keep me warm, here’s one from legendary jazz and R & B musician, Al Jarreau.
Mr. Jarreau passed away yesterday at age 76. I was sad to hear of another artist leaving us.
This single, probably his most well-known song, charted in 1981. I credit it as one of those songs that introduced me to jazz and helped me appreciate the genre.
Enjoy the sweet sound of “We’re in this Love Together” and have a good week,
It’s the last Monday before summer is over for another year. I’m not happy about the end of summer, but the weather should stay warm for a couple of more weeks.
A girlfriend told me about Gregory Porter, and this song (originally performed by Dobie Gray in 1964) is addictive and catchy. I didn’t want a somber end to my “summer music” series, so I chose this video, filled with warm, happy scenes. It reminds me of all the reasons why summer is my favorite season.
I hope you enjoy being part of the “In” Crowd.
Have a fun-filled, upbeat week,
Regina Carter is an American jazz violinist and regarded by many as a master of improvisational jazz violin. Though her work draws upon a wide range of musical influences–including Motown, Afro-Cuban, Swing, Bebop, Folk, and World–she has crafted a signature voice.
I’m a huge fan of jazz, and love her interpretive style. Have a listen as she performs with the Ray Brown Trio playing Gershwin’s “Oh, Lady Be Good!”
