Wake up song for today- 68

I wanted something relaxing to post on Easter Sunday, day of all roast dinners and family gatherings and chocolate eggs, and I thought of one of my favourite jazz musicians…the one and only, angel-faced heavenly-voiced Mr Baker. Here he is in 1987, one year before his unfortunate demise, with a live version of his classic recording of ‘My Funny Valentine’. Ok so it’s the wrong public celebration but my heart is in the right place, so to speak. The original recording of Chet singing this song is spine-tinglingly sad, haunting and wonderful. As this video proves, he could still kick it in old age…Chet is back! – PM
