Fast-changing Friday Random Ten

This morning when I left for work it was coolish and rainy, necessitating boots, an umbrella, and a heavier jacket. When I was on my way home the jacket felt suffocating with the day's warmth and the boots and umbrella were relics. The great guessing game has begun.

1. Mose Allison - Groovin' High
2. Yo La Tengo - Point and Shoot
3. The Kinks - Lazy Old Sun
4. Elvis Costello & the Attractions - From a Whisper to a Scream
5. Sonic Youth - Satan Is Boring
6. Diana Krall - East of the Sun (and West of the Moon)
7. Dave Van Ronk - You've Been a Good Old Wagon
8. Fitz & the Tantrums - Spark
9. Les Baxter - The Shrike
10. Sun Ra - The Beginning

It's definitely that time of year when you can't count on the day's weather being stable. Soon it will be better.

Nice FR10 (as always) I love Mose Allison's voice and Ray Davies' too. The Elvis Costello song is a true classic.

Well, the thaw we're having from winter to spring is slow and gradual, with from what I hear some flurries early one morning last week. I actually prefer that to balmy weather right away when spring begins.

That is a great song. The Mose Allison number is actually one of his instrumentals. There's an album he did in the late fifties that's mostly instrumental jazz. He wears it pretty well.
