Seriously good jazz. Seriously Good.
Philosofer week for videos! I've decided to kick off with one of my all-time favorites (and a fairly easy transition from the past week): "Mack The Knife". Though I acknowledge Bobby Darin's version is the definitive one, I was first really introduced to this song via Louis Armstrong. Way back when, when my family got our first computer, it was also our first CD player. We had 2 CDs. One was The Lion King soundtrack, and one was a Louis Armstrong's Greatest Hits collection. I wore the heck out of the latter. And "Be Prepared." The point is, this particular version of this particular song was one of the first ones I ever really fell in love with.
As CH week winds down, I thought I'd post one last twin spin, a tribute to the three great foundations of American music - Jazz, Country, and the Blues. "Let's give it to them in black & white."
