So I was lucky enough to see Ray Charles before he died at the Hollywood Bowl. And Sarah Vaughn at the Blue Note in the 80's. And Ella at Radio City around the same time. But I never got to see Sinatra. Or Sammy. Or Nina Simone. Largely because I couldn't afford it. So now it occurs to me I can. And Southwest tickets aren't that expensive if I want to go anywhere in the US. So who should I see among the greats - who are still out there playing - before it's too late?
I heard a song this morning as I pulled into my work and didn't hear the end of it as I was running a bit late and figured I could Google it later. Well, that didn't work, so now I'm asking you guys. [more inside]
Years ago on some local radio station I heard a silly jazz song with a guy singing about being surprised to encounter a bald woman. The chorus went something like, "Well, looky there. She didn't have no hair.....no hair up there." [more inside]

Today during NFL games, there was an IBM ad that featured big hits, quarterbacks getting sacked, etc. In the background a delightful jazz tune was playing, kind of an antithesis to the action on screen. What was the song?
What's that song? It's jangly and jazzy. [more inside]
Name that tune please :: PBS is great, and the songs in their promos are actually just as good. Currently running is a promo that ends with the words; "Be More ~ ThirteenHD" (this is PBS Thirteen's High-Def channel which they broadcast in NYC & possibly elsewhere?). The music which accompanies it is a piece that I'd classify as sort of a Blues/Rock/Jazz instrumental. My Question: Name that tune!?! [more inside]
