A Foggy Day


We woke in a real pea-souper today, so this was the first thing that came to mind.

In the time it's taken me to get the software working and the vinyl computerised, the sun's come out, but that's OK because it does musically too, a minute in, thanks to Jimmy Rowles (piano) and Barney Kessel (guitar).

Incidentally, if you fancy hearing a version of this classic George & Ira Gershwin song 'narrated' by Dirk Bogarde (and why wouldn't you?) you can do so on Andy Weatherall's 'Selector After Dark' mix for the British Council (thanks Swiss Adam), which contains many other splendid things besides.

Billie Holiday - 'A Foggy Day' (1957)
