Smooth Jazz (Sunday Song Series)

There’s one driving experience that seems to be as universal as the red octagonal stop sign. That’d be our winding up behind the Sunday driver, who’s going 32 kph (20 mph) below the posted speed limit. And all the while that ol’ double yellow line just keeps on reminding us that we’re navigating an “interminably” long stretch of winding, mountainous terrain.

Of course, were we to have Motown Moe’s smooth jazz playing over the auto sound system… oh… say… finding his aptly named track, Sunday Driver, adding some stress mitigating ambiance to that above paragraph’s scenario?

Well… would we even mind taking life at a slower pace… for awhile… be it on a Sunday or any other day?

Sunday Driver appears on Motown Moe’s May 2020 released album, The New Normal. And, btw, it’s a.k.a. our Week #106 stopover during our ongoing journey thru the vast realm of Sunday titled songs.

If you’ve found this week’s travels enjoyable, how about headin’ back here… seven days from now? Till then…

Stay Safe at Home! Stay Publicly Masked! Stay Healthy!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

T-G-I-S? Yep, that’s an S! (Sunday Song Series)

For Week #90 of our ongoing study of Sunday titled songs, we’ll be giving a listen to Frank Sinatra, in a manner some of his fans may not be accustomed to… i.e., minus Nelson Riddle’s Big Band. The only way Mr. S could’ve been more “unplugged”, would’ve been going the a cappella route.

That said, let’s chill to Ol’ Blue Eyes’ masterful, mellow interpretation of composer Jule Styn’s and lyricist Susan Birkenhead’s love song… It’s Sunday… backed solely by guitarist Tony Mottola’s impeccable performance.

Thank you for stopping by. You’re invited back for our next Sunday Song… seven days from now…

Stay Safe… Stay Home… Stay Healthy

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

43 Weeks and Counting (Sunday Song Series)

Back in the day… 1943 to be precise… the collaboration between composer Jimmy Van Heusen and lyricist Johnny Burke produced Sunday Monday Or Always… which now becomes the Week #43 installment of our Sunday Song Series.

This tune harkens back to the Big Band Era… which in all likelihood is way before your time… hell… it’s even way before this blogging dinosaur’s time.

In addition to the above video, I’ve located two other definitive performances and since I loved ‘em all, I’ll present them all and let you choose which one / ones to give a listen to. However this plays out, it’ll be win-win.

 

Nat King Cole

Bing Crosby & The Ken Darby Singers

 

You have my thanks for stopping by today and my invitation
