THE WINTER BLUES – SWO8 BLUES JAZZ AND A BLIZZARD

 IT’S FEBRUARY AND WE’VE GOT THE WINTER BLUES!


First published Feb 15, 2015 – YouTube

My collaborator, Leslie Martel of swo8 Blues Jazz did the work. Composed the music and wrote the words. She also put the video together. Posted it to YouTube. I think that’s all the work. I merely supplied photographs.

This video is called Winter Blues, a unique, fun collaboration between me and composer-musician swo8 Blues Jazz.

It’s that time of year again and we’ve had our first blizzard. The forecast is for snow every day for the next six days, so I guess the season just got serious. This seems a good time to run this one again.

Winter in New England
Home in winter

Before this longest yet, ironically, shortest (by length of day) month is finished, I expect to have many more winter photographs. But it will end. It always has. So far!

It’s sort of almost spring … right?

      Leslie, it has the makings of another oldie type movie — “Marilyn and Leslie — The Blues Sisters” we can have Peggy Lee and Ella Fitzgerald do vocals for the sound track. Ida Lupino will direct. You can select your co-stars/leading men from Sinatra, Dana Andrews, Kirk Douglas, Robert Alda, John Garfield, and others depending on your budget. Call your people for a green light session. Do NOT call Harvey Weinstein or you can include me out. Hoagy Carmichael wants in. He told me over drinks at Butch’s place last night.

        Why not go with Hoagy? “The Blues Sisters” I like that. What do you say Marilyn?

          Leslie, don’t think she has noticed. She’s sitting next to me but far. far away. Hoagy would work. Stardust memories.

            That old Stardust is magic. (You better mention it to her if we’re going to do this)

      Every time winter rolls around … We need something to keep us busy until the thaw 🙂 We’re all serious northerners!
