Sunday night is...Michel Petrucciani, Satin Doll

Beautiful, moving, funny interpretation by Petrucciani (1962-1999) of the Ellington classic. Makes the heart sing. Partly the musical quips, partly the lyrical freedom of the central part but partly the simplicity. Like most old or ageing gits I am more easily moved to tears than I once was. Too many moments say: this is life in its brief dress. This, among other things, does it.
