So, a hurricane is messing up my evening. Raining ALL DAY and won't stop. I just had to run in it due to lack of parking spots. I really hate rain if it doesn't bring cold. Granted, the temps are better here now but still. COMPLAINT ZONE.
Anyway, so I was thinking about what I needed to really fit this mood. I decided a little Count Basie could do the trick. I love these slower Count Basie orchestra tunes. How perfect are they for rainy days? This song was arranged and recorded in the fifties during a European tour. Jazz was big there during this time period. There's just something about it.
