If you take a glance at my recent listening charts on Last.fm, you will see I’ve been hammering away on one song this afternoon – Lullaby of the Leaves. It is a jazz standard and I have been listening to versions by all sorts of artists and with all sorts of feels: fast, slow, with and without vox.
Why? I’m heading off to another jazz jam at the Red Lion in Brightwell cum Sotwell this evening (7-9pm) and that’s the tune I requested we try after it caught my ear on the radio a couple of weeks ago. I think I’ve probably finished off my homework on that one for now!
