Lake Street Dive plays “I Want You Back” on a Boston sidewalk. The four-piece Boston band was formed seven years ago when they were students at The New England Conservatory where they eventually landed in jazz music, played in an edgy, loose fashion. Rachael Price, 28, is a jazz vocalist from Hendersonville, Tennessee.  In 2003, Price received an honorable mention at the Montreux Jazz Festival’s International Jazz Vocal Competition. In 2004, Price was a semi-finalist and the youngest competitor in the history of the Thelonious Monk Institute Vocal Competition. In August 2004 she made her U.S. jazz festival debut at Yale’s Jazz On The Green where she opened for Joshua Redman. She won the 2006 Independent Music Award for Best Gospel Song with her recording of My God, My Adored One with the Boston Praise Collective. She regularly appears in concert as a featured vocalist with the T. S. Monk Sextet, and is currently working with Grammy Award winning record producer K. C. Porter. (Source: Wiki)

You can find this song on iTunes on their album titled Fun Machine.  The Band can also be found on Facebook and Twitter.

Relaxing Sunday Run…

Sunflower6am.  And I’m off out the door.  I’m running.

Beautiful morning.  66° F.  So slight a breeze.  Sun’s up.  Birds in symphony.  God couldn’t have designed it better.

Mental Check: all clear.  No mist, fog or clouds.  All pistons firing.

iTunes set on shuffle.  10,000+ songs rattling around.

(When did I collect so many songs, and the real question is why?  Packrat.  And here I am annoyed and  banging on the forward button…missing the button…fat fingers…Apple’s too small screen…sweat dripping all over the iPhone…banging again…trying to cycle through the nastys to get to the gems…can’t break my stride…now sweat burning my eyes because I’m looking down to get to the right song…must be the hair gel from last night…chemicals likely peeling off my cornea…all because I can’t bear to throw anything away…or better yet, because I’m too lazy to make a playlist for running…ok…there…Santana…good beat…now pick up the pace…look up…get back in stride.  Why do you get so annoyed with the little things?  Now laughing at myself. Be happy you can run you idiot…)
