Beegie Adair

And now, apropos of nothing, other than the rapidly vanishing holiday break, here's some music to write by, played by Jazz legend Beegie Adair.
    Beegie Adair was born in Kentucky in 1937. She has been playing piano for some seventy years, and is one of Nashville's most recognized and respected jazz musicians.
    Beegie lives in Franklin, Tennessee, with her husband, Billy, an associate professor of jazz studies at the Blair School in Vanderbilt University. She is a Board & Faculty member of the Nashville Jazz Workshop and performs regularly in Nashville, TN.

   Here's Sentimental Journey, with the The Beegie Adair Trio: Beegie Adair, Roger Spencer & Chris Brown

Just for something different, here's the Beatles song, Can't Buy Me Love.

This track is the Japanese pop classic, Sweet Memories.

Last one. A staple of romantic comedies and appearing in movies generally since 1950, including Sabrina (1954), The Cheap Detective (1978), Bull Durham (1988), Natural Born Killers (1994), French Kiss (1995), Something's Gotta Give (2003), The Bucket List (2007), WALL-E (2008), X-Men: First Class (2011) and Monte Carlo (2011): the Edith Piaf classic, La Vie En Rose
