Mirror Mirror

While there is light at the end of the tunnel (and not a freight train, but rather, some good meds), we stayed on the DL again today, and dreading the snow/sleet/ice/rain storm barreling this way tomorrow.

So, we look to be back on track very soon.

For this evening, we have a little treat to share with you.

One song, two versions.

First, we start off with the classic, 'Corner Pocket, a warhorse of a tune from William "Count" Basie, and his monster orchestra.

Then, fast forward a few decades, to the Manhattan Transfer, and their "Until I Met You", which is none other than a vocal rendition of "Corner Pocket"
