Sunday Night Unwind, Father’s Day…

I’ve really been in a jazz mood lately for some reason. Tonight’s Unwind is courtesy of MusicMatch Jukebox‘s On Demand feature. You can listen by artist, by album, by track, or by genre, which is what I’m doing tonight. I clicked on the Jazz genre, and hit the Bebop section. My cup is running over with a wide selection of great jazz!

Right now, for instance, Miles Davis’s original sextet is cookin’ with “Mr. Jackle” from the Milestones album. Immediately prior was “Brazil” from guitarist Grant Green’s The Latin Bit project, and a couple of tracks back was Horace Silver’s classic “Song for My Father,” which became more well-known when Steely Dan stolesampled it on “Rikki, Don’t Lose That Number.”

Anyway, you get the idea…great Unwind stuff!

About Father’s Day…

  • I knew it was Father’s Day because of the all the new Hawaiian shirts that made their debuts at church!
  • We got home and burned a couple of pieces of dead cow on the grill. Throw that on the plate with a cool salad with my original creation honey mustard vinaigrette, a baked sweet potato, and some grilled peaches (don’t waste those precious chunk charcoal-fired BTUs!) – and you’ve got a Daddy’s Day feast that even a formerly fat guy who’s shed 52 pounds can appreciate!
  • Share that fantastic feast with the lovely and gracious “Mrs. Just Charlie” and “The Boy” and it makes the feast even more fantastic! Thanks, y’all!
  • Top that off with a three-mile stroll here, phone calls to both dads, and that pretty much sums up a super Father’s Day!

Hope yours was all that and more!

More Unwind notes…it doesn’t get a whole lot better than John Coltrane’s “In a Sentimental Mood,” thank you very much!
