It’s a day for the blues….should we go with ST. LOUIS BLUES?
Or JOE WILLIAMS’ BLUES? I know! We’ll stick with the classic
C JAM BLUES. Do you have a favorite Blues song?

Our beloved old album for today is ELLA AT THE OPERA HOUSE, recorded live in Chicago back in 1957. It sounds even better now, with all that fancy remastering and tech stuff that Verve does. And yes, that IS Oscar Peterson on the piano!

On this chill, damp winter day, we’re listening to Ella
croon MISTY (by Erroll Garner and Johnny Burke).
I’m partial to Ella's version; which one do you fancy?
