leave a comment »

Spring is coming!

Enjoy listening to this great track sung by King Pleasure on the album Moody’s Mood for Love ,released on September 5th, 1962, entitled “It Might As Well Be Spring”. King pleasure is renowned for singing in Vocalese.

I am listening to James Moody’s Album “Honey“, which has a version of this song w/o lyrics. Great album.

See the video’s original source on Youtube, here.
