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.


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

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

  • You always find the best music!

    Awesome song.
    Thanks for listening.

  • 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:
