Sunday Morning Video: Diana Krall Live In Paris

I seem to have Paris on my mind this week. Here’s the divine Diana Krall live in 2002. FYI, she loves her fellow Canadian Oscar Peterson as much as I do.

Sunday Morning Video: The Beach Boys Live In 1969

Here are the Beach Boys on French television without Monsieur Brian Wilson. His brothers Carl and Dennis are present and accounted for as is their asshole cousin Mike Love in full guru regalia.

Sunday Morning Video- Oscar Peterson: Keeping The Groove Alive

Have I mentioned lately how much I love Oscar Peterson?

Here’s another example: a 2003 documentary about his life. It’s narrated by Christopher Plummer who went to high school with Oscar in Montreal.

Sunday Morning Video: Count Basie At Carnegie Hall

This is a 1981 love-fest originally broadcast by CBS. It’s a tribute to Count Basie featuring Sarah Vaughan, Tony Bennett, George Benson, and Joe Williams who Basie called “number one son” because Joe was his discovery.

Sunday Morning Video: Talking Sopranos with David Chase

It’s been a long time since I posted a SMV. The last one was dated 8/25/2019. It’s time for a revival.

The pandemic has been a nightmare, but some good things have come out of it.
