The Spin I’m In: Dat Dere Rain

First off, let me say that I have total YouTube clip envy of Christy’s Chet Atkins video in the last post. So to curb my jealousy I’m going to lay down a little Oscar Peterson, who passed away last week at his home in Mississauga, Ontario.

It’s a rainy day in LA, with buckets on the way. What’s The Spin You’re in today???
