Jazz Night and a little murder

Thinking of changing Jazz night to Thursday due to my schedule. That way I can keep my promices. That said, we've got another Duke Ellington night. Why? Because I just came across an interesting article on one of the sights I belong to. Interesting read for tonight I thought. It revolves around... a murder! Exciting, yes?

Yes!

"Anatomy of a Murder". The soundtrack is by the Duke himself. Here are some clips, including the fantastic and famous opening credits. Jazz, it does a movie good.

And, my friends, it's whiskey sours night. So go ahead and milk on one of them babies, have a watch, a listen, and a read. Enjoy.









Now tell me you don't want to watch the movie after this. It doesn't have The Duke, but it's some powerful stuff, none the less:

Yum, Whiskey Sour! That was my drink of choice before I quit. Actually it's very good without the Sour as well. Especially to the sound of some great music.

Never had one, but sounded like it would be perfect. Shall I refrain from whiskey sours, then? You let me know, I'm serious.
I had taken a shot of tequila and someone make me laugh REALLY hard; it went right through my nose. Since then I just can't do the hard liquor. But it does make for excellent embiance.

I wouldn't refrain if you enjoy a good drink now and then. I just happened to decide to stop drinking alcohol period about ten years ago because of a comment from my daughter. Can't say I miss it much.
