For Tengrain and Susan

I have a bottle of Bourbon and something nice to smoke. So I invite my two jazz loving friends, Tengrain and Susan, to spend a late Halloween evening with me listening to a great jazz vocalist play one of my favorite songs in Paris. What could be nicer.

Thanks, Utah. She does have a wonderful voice and that's a most thoughtful and kind invitation. I promise to leave quietly if you and Tengrain are making eyes at each other.

Utah Savage said...

I doubt tengrain has eyes for me. But I think he'd probably enjoy our good taste and fine company

Utah Savage said...

Linda, I haven't heard of her but I'll check her out.

Linda Sama said...

Patricia Barber is a local Chicago musician who plays around the world. she's genius. I know you like Diane Krall, but Patricia makes Diane look like a school girl IMO.

Linda Sama said...

plus she's also a poet with her lyrics!

Utah Savage said...

Linda I tried to find a clip of hers to post for you, but couldn't find one with good sound quality. Maybe you know just the one--if so post it at your place, and I'll come listen.

she has a new CD of Cole Porter songs.

forget Rachel Maddow -- she's my girlcrush!

Linda Sama said...

Her CD "Mythologies" is a song cycle based on the "Metamorphoses" of Ovid.
I heard her perform the songs of this CD live. brilliant!

Utah Savage said...

No, you post it. I happen to love Diane Krall, you believe Patricia Barber is the superior lyricist and vocalist so you post her and prove it to me.

Tengrain said...

I missed this last night, Utah - my regrets.

Utah Savage said...

Yea Tengrain. We're a fun bunch of women aren't we.
