Softly Still


Thick snow fell again here through the night, and it's falling softly still.

Here are three beautiful blue things uploaded just now from my LP of the soundtrack of the movie that made us cry, 24 years ago baby.

Chet Baker - 'Fair Weather' (1986)
Herbie Hancock - 'The Peacocks' (1986)
Lonette McKee - 'How Long Has This Been Going On?' (1986)

Herbie Hancock - piano
Pierre Michelot - bass
Billy Higgins - drums
Dexter Gordon - tenor saxophone
Wayne Shorter - soprano saxophone (on 'The Peacocks')

  9. 24 years - sheeeee-it! I always liked the Bobbie McFerrin/Herbie Hancock track "Song for Chan". Think I need to get this on DVD and leave it to mature in the shrink wrap for a couple of years
