Miles Davis at Newport for the Jazz lover on your holiday gift list. 4 CD boxed set for hours of enjoyment!

4 CD boxed set. Available where you buy Compact Discs.
The Newport Jazz Festival has always been a premier event in the music world.  Still having grown up in the sixties I missed out on many of the earliest and arguably the best performances, the most recent release from Legacy group addressed those missing years.

Miles Davis at Newport 1995-1975 Bootleg Series Volume 4 covers 20 years of the festival , 8 Band Line Ups and 5 Cities around the world.  Nearly 5 hours of vintage jazz standards and original creations that include John Coltrane, Herbie Hancock and Thelonious Monk!  The hidden gem in this collection is that most are previously unreleased tracks that are sure to expose even the experienced Miles Davis fan to new territories.

The recordings are archival quality and allow the listener to travel back in time to the earliest days when Jazz was king in the hi-fi of America.  The arrangements vary from impromptu jam sessions that someone fortunately decided to run tape to full length concert performances of “Kind of Blue”.

Giveaway of New Soft Scrub® 4-in-1 Toliet Cleaner to three lucky winners.

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products.

So, how's the dinner time prep going? The kids are back in school, and  then after school is sports, band practice. Do you have the taxi light on top your car on? Sound familiar? I can relate. Those nights of soccer practice and games kept us moving. I am the late afternoon here on the East Coast, and glad to have my dinner thoughts together. How did I do it?

Giveaway of Three Copies of Les Misérables on Blu Ray DVD combo Pack

You know that part of a DVD that prompts you to select play, scenes, bonus, set up while bits of the movie play? I did not get past that for several plays through the song "Do you hear the people sing" with  people of France waving their flag, and singing about they will not be slaves again.  The song is so moving, so powerful. It can stir up your the strength within your soul, it can remind you of the freedom of being an American, and it can bring you to tears of sadness, happiness, and joy. Now on to select play: I saw Les Misérables at the preview screening last year and was captivated, motionless in my seat. The DVD has the same effect. You'll be taken back to another place, another time. The cast is perfect, the singing is moving, and the scenery is real old world "Paris". As I watched Les Misérables it's a reminder to myself, a wake up call for us all to be humble, be better. To forgive each other, let go of our egos, help each other at times of need,
