Al Jarreau's Teach Me Tonight

I'm a little under the weather and so having a lazy day, listening to music and not much else. Here's a little Al Jarreau singing a classic, "Teach Me Tonight." I first heard Nancy Wilson's version on my grandmother's stereo. It was part of my aunt's collection.

Confession: I like anything by Al Jarreau, and since we're on the topic of of Al and I've already mentioned Nancy, the Al Jarreau cut I wanted to post but couldn't find online in an embeddable format was "Go Away Little Girl" off his Tenderness. It's another song that I first heard listening to Nancy Wilson in my childhood, "Go Away Little Boy."

I was listening to Al's "Midnight Sun" and then "My Foolish Heart" when I decided to look up him up on YouTube ... again.

Sorry to hear you're under the weather; get well soon.

I love the music of both Al Jarreau and Nancy Wilson. They are really just classy entertainers.

The last time I got to see him was at WolfTrap and he performed with a broken ankle (cast and all). A simply great performance!

Have someone go to Vitamin Shoppe and pick you up some Oil of Oregano. It's a great natural remedy for fighting off colds, viruses and sinus infections. Just add a dropper in a glass of juice.

BTW...Since I can't remember who I informed (memory is the first to go, so forgive me if this is redundant), I awarded you the Noblesse Oblige Award. Congratulations!

I hope you feel better soon. I am recovering from the latest occupational outbreak. Honey is another good natural medicinal tonic.

On my 50th birthday, I went on a solo date. It was to see Al Jarreau in concert. It was so fantastic! He is truly an amazing singer.

Nancy is from my hometown. I have been listening to her since I was a little girl. What is really cool now is the generation of young singers here that are discovering her body of work. She is always on my Sunday afternoon playlist. Listening to her music takes me back to the days when my parents were to ones paying the bills and worrying about money. :-)

I forgot to mention that I visited your blog courtesy of Ms. Lady Deborah.

I'm grateful for you both.
