Wonderful Tunes Provided By Friends. Wild Tangents Provided By Me.

Today is the Beautiful Baby’s birthday! She is six years old. I’m dedicating the video to her. It’s Anita Baker’s “You Bring Me Joy.” Yes, it’s technically R&B not jazz but Anita’s sound is clearly influenced by Sarah Vaughan.The lyrics might be a bit difficult to understand on this live version. It’s a love song that describes a mother’s love pretty well too.

This is the first song I played for my new baby on our first drive
home. After I dropped her off at daycare for the first time, I played
it as I drove to work and wept like somebody died. I played it again
today as we drove to her very first big kid birthday party. I have no idea where the time goes but I do know I’m enjoying every minute of it!
