Smoke and Mirrors

In a perfect world . . .

Lush Life

Special dedication tonight as I recall a smoky dive from the 50’s called the ‘Waltz Club’  . . .
Long story and definitely not one for this blog.
I knew of one of the patron saints of the place, from what I’ve heard.
Sweet dreams, lady, sweet and smoky dreams
Maybe I’ll see you in them . . .


*I find it intensely gratifying (for very personal reasons)
to give you the list of the players on this archaic recording:

Johnny Hartman, vocal
John Coltrane, tenor sax
McCoy Tyner, piano
Jimmy Garrison, bass
Elvin Jones, drums

God must have been engineering.


  1. Cool….very cool! Did you ever go to the Hottentot?

    Sadly, I didn’t.
    Maybe in another life . . .

  2. You always find the best music!

    Awesome song.
    Thanks for listening.

  3. I will forever link this song whenever I hear the word Smooth.

    Only I would add extra o’s to make it Smooooooooooooth.

    I loved it, especially the players.
    Smooth? I say, “Smooooooove” :mrgreen:
