no rush jazz celebration

Well, that was fast. The news is final. Rush Limbaugh has been dropped from the group that is set to buy The Rams. He was a bad business move, apparently. Ya think?! Wat worries me is the fact they this group included him in the first place. I still have no faith in them. Now they need to find a replacement for Limbaugh and of course Limbaugh's money. (FRIEDA BABBLEY: Rush to buy Rams?)

On the bright side, I won't have to hear Rush's name around town in correlation to The Rams. Soooo... it's time to take a nice relax, alone or with some friends. Yes, some Jazz is in order.

This evening, Winston "Mankunku" Ngozi is featured. A Cape Town South African Jazz musician influenced by the great John Coltrane and so many other favorites.

Here are some perfect pieces by the cloth-capped man himself, Winston "Mankunku" Ngozi. And a link to a wonderfully written tribute article by a good HubPages friend of mine, from Cape Town South Africa, Tony Mac, who got to personally listen to this legend's smooth jazz sounds in his home town. Winston "Mankunku" Ngozi died yesterday at the age of 66. Have a read while you listen: The bellowing horn is stilled � farewell Mankunku

Perfect way to celebrate the great news of a no RUSH zone. Thanks Freida.

Recent tidbit on the Rachael Maddow Show. Did you know that the Saint Louis Rams are currently the ONLY team in the entire NFL that donates more money to the Democratic Party. Every other NFL team supports the Republican Party. The San Diego Chargers donate the most money to the GOP.

I'm glad you're enjoying this post dustjacket attic. Don't you just love being able to go to your own blog to sift through and listen to pleasant tunes? I think we're the motts!

Bill, I had no idea. That's most interesting! By the looks of it, if this "group" does end up buying the rams, there will be no Democratic teams left! That's pretty frightening! I think if that happens I'm going to have to listen to this post A LOT! lol. Thanks for the info.
