Alan at Robert’s Roost almost always responds to my political rants with the combination of an insightful response and a suggestion that I step back and smell the roses (or some such ‘take a deep breath’ kind of advice). I appreciate that. So this evening, while killing a few minutes before my weekly trip to mom’s, I came across the following video of stills set to ”Round Midnight’. The song was written in the early 1940s by a man who was born in the NC city that was later the closest thing I had to a hometown. Here it’s interpreted by another North Carolinian that I admire so much I named my Lab after him. The other guy’s not too shabby either.
Enjoy. It truly doesn’t get any better than this.
