Blue and Sentimental


Monday morning says a few more minutes lying in bed, staring at the ceiling fan, wondering what happened.

Count Basie, piano

Herschel Evans, Tenor Sax

Lester Young, Clarinet

Jo Jones, drums

I first encountered this piece while acting in a production of Lorraine Hansberry’s The Sign in Sidney Brustein’s Window. I had to dance drunkenly in the dark to this.
