her latest flame

obssessed with this at the mo... can't quite tear myself away

deathly horace and all the serious youths of the netherlands

singing along to myself the jeri southern version

and the sweat dripping

and all those stupendous shots of big chords and rimshots and fat strings

oh boy

horace silver quintet - senor blues (live)

oh heavens there were smoochers too that bit that was supposed to be the end of the evening but ended up calm before storms holding on tight being braver than you could ever be 'hands slowly and gingerly make their way down her back'* magic moments...

i know we've had them all before but they're such wonders...

sam cooke - that's where it's at

dusty - the look of love

sugar hill - that's love
