I don’t understand what it is, how it works or why it exists, but I notice that Florida Cracker has included me in a list o’ blogs tagged for musical things…given my exuberance from yesterday/thereabouts about one of the many CDs I just received from my recent purchases from amazon.com, I feel compelled — nah, obligated — to share (again) the list o’ musical CDs I have this past evening and night and now morning been a-listen’ to.

Stan Getz & The Oscar Peterson Trio: The Silver Collection – Stan Getz, Oscar Peterson
Tawny/Music, Martinis and Memories by Jackie Gleason

Still, if someone knows how to avoid hating the hateful, I’d be interested in reading how it’s done.
Because, there’s a sort of musical note to all these threads this morning:
