I’ve been all over the place with listening to music. I had gone away from listening to jazz and I don’t know why. I guess just to expand my musical pallet. But I just find more and more in jazz that is just fun! It also has the most beautiful moments, as with this piece Moonlight Serenade By Glenn Miller. To me it creates this sense of nostalgia of a place or even a feeling that you had before. And it is just so damn pretty so take a minute, and listen. It’s a truly beautiful piece.
