Merry Christmas

The AfroFogey like all people who’ve had pleasant childhoods love Christmas. So I take this time, on this glorious day set aside to celebrate the birth of our savior, to say Merry Christmas to my brothers, sisters, cousins, and friends who follow the site. I truly do hope all of you have a blessed holiday. While doing that be sure to listen to this piece played by the Negro icon Duke Ellington and his orchestra.

Sir Duke was a cool cat and could add soul, or swing, any piece of music. As he said ” “I thought Tchaikovsky to Strayhorn to Ellington might be a pretty good parlay.”
