Wednesday Jazz Notes!

Did you know we have a Facebook page? We’ve recently started sharing a weekly jazz song there every Wednesday. Check out our FB page and follow us to hear a recommendation from Susan or Matt on a classic Jazz performance we want to share!

For those who can’t see the most recent song on Facebook, here is a YouTube link for the beautiful “A Flower is a Lovesome Thing,” by Billy Strayhorn, one of Matt’s piano and compositional influences. You can find the song on YouTube here:
