My head feels like a blown out egg, an empty eggshell with two holes, fragile but astoundingly sturdy at the same time. This is not an alcohol induced coma, but the result of some infection with coughing, sweating and feeling blank – my head simply did not work for the first half of this day.
And now that I crawl back to the desk to bring Sunday Music to my venerated readers, I am greeted with a “spike” in my statistics, 87 views of this homepage from one Canadian visitor within very short time – does the spammaster ride again ? I do not know, and do not care right now.
In other news, the elections in Easter Germany took place this Sunday. The fascists got around 25% I think. This is not nice, but less than I feared they could reach, I saw them at roughly one third. There is still a chance to contain them, if the bourgeois parties work together, what should be no problem in a working democracy. If the parliament is not on permanent vacancy that is.
Let us hear some nice music : Mr Artie SHAW (Ger., Eng.) & his orchestra perform Tabu. I link here the digitally enhanced version, while here is the version directly from the 1945 record. The guitar solo towards the end is played by Mr Barney Kessel.
I hope you enjoy the music, may our week be healthy, gently, and, perhaps, a bit swinging.
