PLAYLIST FOR “A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO LAZINESS” (6.1.19)

PLAYLIST FOR “SALUTE TO THE GRAMMYS” (2.6.16) #jazz #jazzsingers #jazzradio #grammys

7 Feb

I gave my salute to the Grammys this week with almost every song and CD either a Grammy nominee or a past Grammy winner…of course I couldn’t resist throwing in a few categories I think the Grammys have overlooked. I also nominated the cover below for album cover of the year and told the audience I’d be posting it. Beautiful CD and beautiful cover. Feel free to discuss.
