Lucky Me!

December 6th, 2013

It’s freeeeezing here in Dallas and it made me think about my favorite seasonal song, “Baby It’s Cold Outside”!  In doing a quick youtube search I found this great version with one of my favorites…Lyle Lovett.  With both of us being Aggies, he always makes me feel a bit “kum ba yah” …

I instantly fell in “mad girl crush” with Kat Edmonson!  Besides the fact that she’s another Texan, I’m drawn to her coy and elegant tone mixed with a bit of  gravel in her voice….  She’s ‘old school’ and I love it!

 

‘Rock It To Me’

July 23rd, 2013

This new video clip from the new album, “Panic” by Caravan Palace, makes me wanna’ dance like no ones watching!  Who knew  ”French electro swing and Gypsy Jazz could be so much fun!

OK, here’s another one just for grins…  This Francophile says, “Qui, Qui” to Caravan Palace!

What kind of music makes you want to dance like no one’s watching?

Mercy Me! – new Amy Grant recording

May 15th, 2013

Does anyone else love Amy Grant like I do?  Just hearing her voice brings back so many old memories of college and some friends that I haven’t seen in years!  (uh-oh…I think I just aged myself!)

After 10 years of time away from the studio, she’s back with her album, How Mercy Looks from Here, and sounds better than ever  with guest vocals from some of my favorites…James Taylor, Carol King and Sheryl Crow…and her hubby, Vince Gill.  I give this comeback two thumbs up!

Life Is A Cabaret

September 25th, 2012

I’ve been all about “stepping outside of the box” lately and trying new things, so I was thrilled when my good friend, Trey, asked me at the last minute to go to the Sammons Cabaret Series performance last week!  Tracy Fulton, the master of ceremonies, has put together a four month series of talented vocalist that are sure to please.  The environment is a traditional American Cabaret setting with small cocktail tables and low lighting…AND drinks and snacks come with your ticket!

Gary Lynn Floyd

Gary Floyd topped the bill last week performing the songs of Harry Warren.  I was amazed at how many songs I knew…like “You’ll Never Know” (possibly the sweetest song ever!) and “At Last”.  The amazingly talented Julie Bonk accompanied him. Julie is well-known for teaching Norah Jones and will mesmerize you on the piano!

I challenge you to step outside of the box and try new things!  Life is short and there are so many things on this earth for us to experience.  Get as much in as you can before it’s too late!
