This song is cold winter mornings before the sun had even come up. Leaving someone I once loved but can't anymore, to slip into the back of a Town Car that would take me to work. Gliding through a sleeping New York City. Music tucked snugly into my ears. There was exhaustion, uncertainty and even a little sadness -- but for a moment, there was peace.
Here's the great John Coltrane and the equally great Duke Ellington -- In a Sentimental Mood.
And, just because, below it's Sting's gorgeous version of My One and Only Love.
