It's Classic Recipe Monday!

 While listening to this CD, I found myself pouring a glass of wine, looking for a comfy chair, laying my head back, closing my eyes and gently taking in a relaxing jazzy night of vintage jazz music! It  definitely helped me to relax, escape and forget about everyday stresses for awhile.

David is the pianist and arranger, of these beautiful jazz CD's and he has recently relea…
