Maturing Sun

In that unfeasibly warm, sunny weather yesterday, walking through the park with the girls and Mrs H and those lengthening October shadows, this popped suddenly into my mind and I started singing it, I don't know why. It just 'went'. It's a lovely song. One of Dad's.

Nat 'King' Cole (with George Shearing) - 'A Beautiful Friendship' (1962)


  1. My own posting today was all about my dad's music and its influence on me....

    Great minds blah blah blah

  2. I saw that and was planning to pop in later and comment. Strange. I think for me also partly prompted by reading Darcy's sad news.

  3. Spookily I have just realised that when NKC recorded this he was the exact same age as I am now.

  4. Oh how gorgeous is this - close bosomed friend.

    Strangely, this was released as I was born ... on that red-leatherette sofa in a 2 up 2 down with toilet half way up the cobbled street. The midwife had a bubble car.

    I know I've had a sunny afternoon on the cider, but IF I were an exam question setter, I'd lob in ...
    "Is it possible to have a beautiful friendship with an attractive member of the opposite sex without any carnal thought involvement?" Discuss.

  5. Oooh, you're not getting me onto that one.

    I miss bubble cars. I have a Dinky one.

  6. i've gone all teary now bless you. peace go with you brother

  7. Oh you bastard, I was in the middle of writing a post about the Cole/Shearing album that my mum had.

  8. Well you must press on with it Lee - nothing here to scupper it and I love your 'Mum pieces' very much.
