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

It’s really more movie and TV theme appreciation than cartoon theme appreciation but “Baby Elephant Walk” is still an awesome song. It was composed in 1961 by Henry Mancini for the movie “Hatari.”

Fellow jazz fan Euphoria Fish posted a funny on my Facebook wall which reminded me about guitarist Al Caiola who will be celebrating his 91st birthday this year. He worked with many of the greats during his long career and he scored solo hits with the theme from “The Magnificent Seven” and the theme from “Bonanza.” Al recorded this song on his 1962 album “His Golden Guitar & Manhattan Strings.”

We have had the goofiest spring weather on record here in my Beautiful State. Just this week we’ve gone from 90 degrees to 50 in the span of a few days. My walking schedule has been extremely erratic because sometimes it gets downright chilly out there! I’d like to get more exercise but I’m only human. I mean no one could possibly expect me to endure the monstrous inconvenience of donning a light wrap in the interest of physical fitness!
