(9:00 PM) | Brad:
Friday Night JazzAdmittedly, it's not yet begun to feel like spring here in the Midwest. In fact, last week I was driving north-central Kentucky and found myself in nearly white-out conditions. And just today I found myself pulling my shoulder up to my neck and muttering "fuck" innumberable times during my walk to work.
And yet, as the weatherman reminds us, spring is here, believe it or not; and as our Friday Night Jazz tunes remind us, spring is here, like it or not. We're changing things up a little bit tonight. Spring has always struck me as a very verbal season, so a bit of vocals seemed appropriate. I hope you enjoy.
First up, Carmen Lundy taking on the classic "Spring Can Really Hang You Up the Most" (from her Self Portrait).
Followed, ever the gentleman, by Tom Waits' "You Can Never Hold Back Spring" (from disc two of his recent Brawlers, Bawlers, and Bastards).
