As we wrap up the month and year, here’s that ubiquitous question, “What are You Doing New Year’s Eve?” I don’t know about you all, but I’m going to have a Louis and Ella songfest!
Finally, a Louis/Ella duet!
This song is included on a Christmas album, but its message is appropriate year-round. Honestly wouldn’t the world be a better place if everyone focused on their own behavior instead of judging others?
A friend of mine, who passed away a few years ago, once met Peggy Lee on a train and reported that she was very kind and gracious. Here is a tribute to their chance meeting.
For the final Sunday in December, another lovely sacred carol with Ella.
I hope nobody has the Santa Claus Blues today, but if so, at least you are in good company. Here is a really old Louis Armstrong recording with vocals by Eva Taylor.
Bonus instrumental version:
Merry Christmas! ❤️
One more for this Christmas Eve, in a key that normal people can sing along to. Merry Christmas, friends.
Another Christmas Eve gift for you. ❤️
