Today is this great jazz man's birthday:

Here's a winter song by him:

I liked Take Five also, but it kept going on too long.

We used to sing Jolly Old St Nicholas in grade school, before I heard any records of it.

@edgarblythe,
Yep, Texas, Christmas is for kids. Loved Lena doing Tomorrow Mountain.

Anyone remember Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1fEsvke8ys

This film concentrates on a war of wills between rebellious POW David Bowie and camp commandant Ryuichi Sakomoto. Assuming that his other prisoners' unwillingness to protest their cruel treatment is a sign of weakness, Sakomoto is most impressed by Bowie's enigmatic defiance.

Sakomoto says: Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence

edgar, I didn't know Kathy and The Innocents doing A Thousand Stars, but thanks for the introduction.

Gurda, Welcome back to you as well. Straight No Chaser by Kristen was fabulous.

Inspired by edgar, two versions of the same song.

First, the instrumental:

Now, "the sassy" Miss Sarah:

Once again calling all musicians, music lovers, painters and poets.

Ah, I miss Olivier 5, my French friend. Also McTag, my Scottish friend and England, of course.

Today is this guy's birthday, but first some info.

Harry Forster Chapin (December 7, 1942 – July 16, 1981) was an American singer-songwriter best known for his folk rock songs including "Taxi," "W*O*L*D," "Sniper", "Flowers Are Red," and the No. 1 hit "Cat's in the Cradle." Chapin was also a dedicated humanitarian who fought to end world hunger; he was a key participant in the creation of the Presidential Commission on World Hunger in 1977.[1] In 1987, Chapin was posthumously awarded the Congressional Gold Medal for his humanitarian work.

Now, y'all, The Cat's in the Cradle:

I almost always prefer a vocal of a song, letty. And Chapin's songs are all favorites of mine.

Sarah Vaughn and Billy Eckstine

@edgarblythe,
Thanks, edgar for your comment and personal acknowledgement.

I had no idea that Billy and Sarah did I'll Be Loving you Always. Beautiful, Texas.

Well, it's one odd thing to listen to the warm, and it reminded me of The Sound of Silence:

Hurry back izz with a y. Didn't know that sonnet so thanks again for the introduction and we'll be waiting for Uncle Jim, my friend.

Had some problems with the equipment in our Florida radio station. I'm surprised that our edgar didn't like that one by Ernie Ford.

two songs for Sunday here in our station.

First, a funny one that I learned from my Texas friend.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o95tSMAphKY

Now, a hymn for today:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0NgftkD7xk

I'll bet our Latin George will know that one.

@edgarblythe,
Like that one by Loretta Lynn, Texas.

Another birthday man, and somehow he reminds me of Leonard Cohen:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=knII3S0MZtY

funny observation about the guy:

Thomas Alan "Tom" Waits (born December 7, 1949) is an American singer-songwriter, composer, and actor. Waits has a distinctive voice, described by critic Daniel Durchholz as sounding "like it was soaked in a vat of bourbon, left hanging in the smokehouse for a few months, and then taken outside and run over with a carzzzzzzzzzzzzzz''

@wandeljw,
Gurda, Welcome back to you as well, my German friend.

Fantastic version of Lo How a Rose. Love it!

Here's a choir singing Ring Christmas Bells, but I'm not certain of the dialect. Doesn't matter as it is lovely:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I6x-pjVL67A

Just found out that it was based on an old Russian folks song.

Tonight Will Be Fine by Leonard was great, Mark. Speaking of Russian, this next song for kids was translated to this:

Rudolph the Red Knows Rain dear. Razz
