Smooth and Easy Jazz Listening for a Sunday Afternoon: The July 28th, 2019 Edition

I haven't posted a Jukebox Saturday Night entry in several weeks -- including last night -- so I'll post a few smooth jazz pieces on this Sunday early afternoon …


"This Can't Be Love" by Frank Sinatra and Margaret Whiting performing with the
Jeff Alexander Orchestra from Sinatra's
Light-Up Time period (1949)

Many artists have covered this standard over the years …

*******

Another great piece by a great and talented lady …


"Love, Mystery, and Adventure" by Jo Stafford performing with Paul Weston and His Orchestra (1951)

*******

Now here's a real old school Big Band standard …


"Rose Room" by the Benny Goodman Sextet featuring Charlie Christian on guitar (1939)

Yes, I got the idea for these three songs from recent Bryan Wright podcasts.

*********

And we'll end with a piece very suitable for July …


"Summer Breeze" by Seals and Crofts from the duo's album of same name (1972)

*******

As a tiny update …

I didn't do my laundry last night, and instead went to bed around 2 a.m. I can't do my laundry now as the laundry room is filled with the younger-end female millennials who live in this building and, I guess, Sunday early afternoon is laundry time. So, I'll do my laundry tonight including ALL the on-the-floor bedding.

For today, I dunno … I'm just going to go out and about. Maybe I'll take the Metro up to Bethesda and get lunch there. I haven't had any "issues" with any places there (yet).

For this evening, it's dinner and a show ('Allo! 'Allo!) at Fred & Doug's place with Aydin, who has been away for a few weeks upon the death of his dad.

My next entry will either be late Monday or Tuesday.
