XMAS is so nice here in Paradise. Quiet, friendly, small on a mountain top. So high you can almost reach the sky living above the clouds. I thought it would Snow tonight, but not so far. I've been enjoying some music over the years. California is filled with music as professional's opportunities to work are as varied as the industry itself. Right now Billy Holiday is on (CD of the blues), A'hv got it bad and that ain't good, with piano accompaniment, then her with an orchestra and vibes, bass, just swing'n. The piano and bass are incredible accompanyment, but when the full band come in "it moves" Right now its "John Lee Hooker" and the Muddy Waters Blues Band w/ Otis Spann P. and Francis Clay on Drums.
