Short order

Here's what should be a fun end to the month of January. Nat King Cole and his trio in an early venture into the music video, one predating the widespread ownership of TV sets. In a lot of ways it feels more like a comedy skit. (A beautifully scored one, to be sure.) Nat's mugging while sitting at the table is very improv.

That was so cool. The use of double entendres in music from that age was subtle and sweet.

Yeah, I guess there was some subtle double entendre going on there. Or quadruple or quintuple. No one really knows what "frim fram sauce" is.
