The first heat of Spring arrives, and the bulbs and grass surge, the cats head for the shadows, and I pull out the music that saunters. No rush to get anywhere.
Phillips, Grier and Flinner have several albums together, but Looking Back is my current favorite. They respectfully cover the Beatles (I Want You) and Hendrix (Little Wing) with a touch that is only possible because of their great musicianship. They take their time, and honor the mood of the original while stamping it their own.
Why does warm weather make me want to listen to this...? Therein the mystery.
