Chick Corea - Great Pumpkin Waltz

This waltz is one of the best compositions Vince Guaraldi wrote for the Peanuts TV shows, and Chick Corea more than does it justice with a near-flawless interpretation. So much feeling. 

Wes Montgomery - Green Leaves Of Summer

Recorded about a month before Wes Montgomery died, Road Song is one of his most orchestrated albums, quite literally. Wes’ soloing is restrained, melodic. The orchestrations are very prominent. This is a deep cut from the album. I like small jazz combos, but I also enjoy these larger ensembles, embellished by the arrangements of Don Sebesky or Claus Ogerman (even better). Variety is the spice of life.

Pat Metheny Group - (Cross The Heartland)

This is the song that introduced me to Pat Metheny. It’s very easy to listen to and one of his most popular and melodic compositions. It’s hard not to like, really. 

Anita O’Day-Peel Me a Grape

Cooooooool, slinky. 

This is Bloomberg, not some conspiracy nuts. 

I would ask Snowden for confirmation. 

The RCC is not turning socially liberal.

Abortion is another abomination we are expected to tolerate, even celebrate. 

Human life is “sacred and inviolable” and “every civil law is based on the recognition of the first and most fundamental right, the right to life,” Pope Francis told an Italian pro-life organization today.

It might be wise to study and know this info when dealing with our new militarized, SWAT-teamed, taser-armed, flack-jacketed law enFORCEment system.
