Jazz standard #5

Three-thirty Wednesday afternoon.  From the high school across the street a solo trumpet and "I Can't Get Started With You."  Someone putting in extra time before Wednesday evening band practice.  How sweetly it floated, timeless.  The kids are alright.

Not the trumpet but does it matter?

After receiving Erin's comment, I felt remiss not having chosen this version.

One of my favourites - I love the original by trumpeter Bunny Berrigan. His raspy voice, great trumpet playing and that high note at the end - pure gold and instantly evocative.

Erin - Thank you. I've added the Berrigan, original, version, clearly the one that should have been the first choice. It is a fine thing to have people around us who know what they're talking about. I'm so glad you mentioned it. xo
