Speaking of unexpected finds...discovered this Hugh Laurie album in Starbucks a year ago. That's right - Dr. House is a killer jazz pianist. Honest!
[here is the link since YouTube is refusing to show in post:
Didn't It Rain album is simply excellent. [See what I Mean!? Evenin' is my FAVE. Which one is yours?] All superb musicians with The Copper Bottom Band.
Take time to read Mr. Laurie's liner notes!!! Equally superb writing.
So after a year of dreaming and waiting impatiently, yes stamping my little foot the entire time, HL & The Copper Bottom Band [with Elizabeth "Trombonista" Lea - showstopper extraordinaire!] finally came to town! We got tickets third row center!! And this is what we saw!!!

In the spirit of One For My Baby...and One More For the Road (which they bring to a new standard on this album, btw), here is our original favorite Hugh Laurie piano, from way back, remember Jeeves and Wooster?
"Oh, and one for yourself...of course."
