New York - London - Tokyo
Lifting this wet Monday morning in London with the sunny Sunday afternoon in NYC this song describes: perfect.
An internet trail story here - how playing Yasuko Agawa's 'L.A Night' (continued thanks to glen) led me to the list of her most played tracks on Last FM led me to the nu-bossa B-side of that 12" led me to uncovering this uptempo 2009 remix from Quasimode - 'a four piece jazz band based in Tokyo, Japan' - led to general joy.
The vocal version by Eddie Jefferson of the composer's original is a bit groovy too.
