Here I sit, up too late again. And I need some peace.
As it seems like the whole world (or at least this country) is on fire, I need music to calm me, not bring out more aggression. I can find that elsewhere, thank you very much.
So it was in this mood (and while reading a book about French pilots) that I decided to listen to some French jazz on Thursday evening. Much of it was instrumental, but even the vocal stuff might as well have been ... until it got to a particular song.
Unfortunately, I can't find a live version of Barlow on YouTube, just the static image of the album cover. Since that's boring, instead I found a version by Mellis & the Swing Lovers. It's a little faster, but I think you'll get the impression.
So take a break from the world. Trust me, it'll still be in bad shape when you get back to it ... but maybe you'll be a little better off.
