Music for an Overcast Day
I was introduced to the music of Johnny Hartman several years ago by a musician friend of mine who was kind enough to say he thought my singing voice was reminiscent of his, and upon hearing this "make you swoon", mellow, vulnerable but intensely masculine voice I just fell in love.
For a while I listened to this album non-stop, thoroughly annoying my friend Aaron, who is dictatorial about when certain music should be played. "Respect the Seasons!". He was adamant that the Johnny Hartman John Coltrane album was only appropriate for Autumn and Winter, but with the weather as cold and wet as it is today, I think it's just perfect.
