First, thanks to all who contributed to the Funky Dance Party playlist. Who said wonks aren’t funky?! I must admit I’d never listened the Dap Kings but am now a big fan.
However, what with summer vacations starting, and controlling for the fact that Americans are driving less, and given that I’ve somehow managed to never feature one of my favorite jazz singers, today’s musical interlude takes you on an extremely smooth ride down route 66.
Nat King Cole’s at the wheel, so you know they’ll be lots of stops along the way for swinging piano, jazz guitar, and some of the mellowest vocal chords this side of paradise. Enjoy, cats and kittens, and whichever direction you’re motoring in, or even if you’re just gettin’ your kicks at home, have a great long weekend.
You’ll see Amarillo…Gallup, New Mexico
Don’t Forget Winona
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernardino!
