Random Songs I Like #15 – Ladies in Mercedes

Random Songs I Like Week #15.  This is a brilliant composition by jazz bassist and composer Steve Swallow, with hysterical lyrics by British jazz vocalist Norma Winstone.  This song has always resonated with me, since I moved to the Uber-fancy Upper East Side of Manhattan.  This is the performance that I captured on my 2019 album Solo Sessions Volume 1.  Buy the album here:  https://brendaearlestokes.bandcamp.com
