I got up at 10.30 this morning and now at 1.30 am, I’m ready to hit the frog. I decided to listen to jazz when I got up this morning and before I left I listened to The Best Of Miles (which is ridiculous as there are over 100 Best Ofs), mainly because it was the first album on my jazz playlist. I didn’t actually get to Stan Getz and Mose Allison which I noticed were also on there but later I did discover King Pleasure. This from Wikipedia: “King Pleasure (March 24, 1922 – March 21, 1982) was an American jazz vocalist and an early master of vocalese, where a singer sings words to a well-known instrumental solo.”

My education continued with vocalese classic Moody’s Mood For Love (1952) which also starred the legend Blossom Dearie. Check it out.
