"Music hath charms to soothe the savage breast...

...to soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak" (William Congreve's The Mourning Bride, Act I, Scene I). Here's some sweet jazz to help you get over the midweek blahs. The tune is "Black and Blue," the title track from the 1991 album by Gene Harris and his quartet. We currently have this album and four others by Harris and his all-star colleagues.



Next up on the playlist is "You Know that I Know," with words by Hank Williams, music and vocals by Jack White (from The Lost Notebooks of Hank Williams). Even from beyond the grave, Williams' lyrics pack a hell of an emotional wallop!
