I’ve been feeling jazzy lately.
I don’t know what it is about jazz,
but sometimes it just does something that other music can’t.
It’s days like this that I wish I could jet up to the Big Apple
and check out the new Broadway play, After Midnight.
I’ve heard good things about the lively show,
as it rolls through the music of Duke Ellington, Harold Arlen,
and other jazz favorites.
Apparently the band, The Jazz at Lincoln Center All-Stars,
steals the show (as it should be, right?).
It’s full of impressive tapping, dance, and Harlem Golden Age glamour.
Oh, how I wish I could see it this week!
Since I can’t go to New York today, I’ll settle for some
jazz on the ol’ Spotify.
My husband recently discovered Lake Street Dive on NPR,
and I’m quite obsessed with them, too.
If you haven’t heard this indie jazz and soul band yet,
you’re in for a real treat.
If you’re in Birmingham and need to get jazzy,
check out Ona’s Music Room in Pepper Place.
From what I’ve heard, if you like great music, it’s a fine place to visit.
It’s been voted Best Jazz Club in Birmingham
and top “10 Jazzy Places” in the country by USA Today.
I hope you’re feeling jazzy today.
Don’t be afraid to turn on some tunes
and let the music take you away for a moment.
