King Of The Hill educated us in music.. not just propane!
Saw this guy live, he had us captivated.. pure class.
Chuck Mangione - Feels So Good.
I also saw Chuck live in the early 80's at a local county college. That's one of my favorite instrumental songs.
Great gateway bloke to jazzy stuff.. Lot of folk are nervous to dip the toe in..
Herb Alpert - Rotation.
I just had a song pop into my head for absolutely no reason, but I was sure it was a Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass track.
Not Spanish Flea:
Not Tijuana Taxi:
And the winner is......A Taste Of Honey
No idea why such stuff just pops into my head like that. I mean, I like the music, but I haven't listened to that stuff for years.
Herb & The Brass was about as contemporary as my Dad's musical taste ever got. He was more swing & jazz and even drove the tour bus for the Glenn Miller Orchestra in the late 70's. Dad was a charter bus driver and a musician (Hammond B-3 & Leslie speaker in the living room, also sax and trumpet)
