A Little Cole Porter from Spain

A little Cole Porter by Spanish musicians and set to images of New York. This is the New York I remember from my last trip in the late 1990's. And it is always jazz I think of when I think of New York. There is a heart stopping moment when the twin towers of the World Trade Center come into view and then another view of the city takes their place and there is no plane or fire or smoke and ash and we were not torturers afraid of our shadows.

I am not ignoring the horror in Iran. I am listening, watching, paying attention, doing what I've been asked.

I have my own battle and it isn't with a theocracy in Iran. It's with a theocracy here at home. Not yet quite so brutal, but it has potential.

Hi Utah-

Great music, great video!!

I recall going to the 'Village' about 7 years ago an having lunch with Dolan at a great little spot where there was a 3 piece jazz ensemble playing. We stayed for hours and ate and drank and enjoyed the jazz.

Yous sharing of this music and video brought me right back to a wonderful time - thanks Utah!!

Love to you

I would our own theocracy would be just as brutal if given the chance.

Love Cole Porter.

Dean, so glad to see you. It's always nice to see you here. Your liking Cole Porter makes you very sexy. Men with a romantic streak really get to me.
