I’m A Fan Fridays! (Saturday edition) Jardin D’hiver

Stacey-KentThere has never been a better time to be alive! I’ve said it before, and I don’t mind repeating myself when something this good happens.

In what other age could you be driving in a car, listening to the radio streaming through your phone, hear an artist who is brand new to you and someone you most likely would never have heard of otherwise, park at your destination and look that artist up on that same phone via this unlimited library of information in about ten seconds?

Only THIS age, I tell you!!

I’m so glad I found Stacey Kent.  Her voice is hypnotic and very special.  Enjoy this beautiful cover of a fantastic song!

I’m A Fan Fridays! — Fall In Love Easily

PJ-1222_1Just about every night as I attempt to wind down at the end of the day, I turn on my stereo and dial up my favorite Pandora radio station—Chet Baker Radio.

A few years back, I discovered the music and vocal stylings of one of the great jazz men of the mid twentieth century.  The late Chet Baker had a way of blowing his trumpet and singing the old standards that moves me like few other artists can.  His voice goes deep down inside me and hits the bulls-eyed mark on my heart with every simple, straightforward phrase.

He left us way too soon.  But thanks to the modern world of digital recording and YouTube, his artistry can be shared all around the world.

So, for this edition of I’m A Fan Fridays, I share with you my favorite rendition of one of my favorite songs of all time.

Ladies and Gentlemen… Mister Chet Baker.  Enjoy!
