Just so happened to play Volare with Bobby last week. What a great guy.  He was being honored by the Kidney Foundation in Philly and sang Volare and Mack the Knife.  GREAT! (thanks to my sax player Thomas Hutchings for the photo, I swiped it from his facebook album of the event)

All right.  1st day of spring and i don’t feel it yet. I was still wearing gloves and a scarf today. I’m ready for warm weather. I had C.E. Smith over to record today. He was hitting notes that shook Claudia’s depression glass in our Larkin credenza. (my wife collects old things) edit: it’s not a credenza apparently.  it’s a glass front something or other.

C.E. really is a tremendous singer! Can’t wait to post the tunes when I’m done with them!

So, here’s Volare and I’ll be back with more tomorrow.
