Christmas In July 2020-44

Another day, another stack of boxes moved. I'm starting to see some progress, so that's good.  And we're almost to the end of Christmas in July! I guess that's a sad thing, but all good things must come to an end eventually.  There are only 10 files in the share tonight, but they are good ones, trust me.  Here's the link, see you again tomorrow.

Tonight's second half kicked tonight's first half's ass. Love seeing (hearing) Bob Brookmeyer. And Ceil Cabot was an unexpected delight--never heard that track that I can recall (no year on it?)...not that its Christmas specific, but I really really liked it. I may even have to steal it for one of my mixes.

Yes, that "Season's Greetings" wasn't quite what I expected. It's......relatable.

Thanks, Stubby, that's high praise coming from you! I believe the Julius Monk stuff was some sort of underground theater, I've seen a couple of others, they all feature similar cover art. I was excited to see something I could share on one, finally. Plenty of Christmas content there, but more about holidays in general, that's for sure. And then the jazz stuff, I had hoped to do a full share of jazz at one point, but never found enough.

Thanks for the list, Mr. Choir.

From Wikipedia, the date for the Julius Monk/Ceil Cabot is 1959. Must have missed that when I ripped it, or just forgot...

Julius Monk did a number of revues at a place called Upstairs at the Downstairs in the 50s, including the one that spawned the Ceil Cabot number you posted. I have several of the albums and keep meaning to transfer them.

I finally got around to listening to the last two shares of the season. I was moving in mid-August and haven't had time to wrap up the season. I'm echoing others' comments by saying that it's been great to discover these songs throughout July. Thanks for taking the time to share these. My "best of" folder contains more than 70 songs that I'll have to pare down in the coming months. It's been a lot of fun. Can't wait to see what you'll be sharing or re-sharing in December. See you soon!
