Monday Music Moves Me, Puts Me in the Mood, and Feels So Good

Monday Music Moves Me theme is something jazzy. Post anything with brass and you're dancing!

Back in my college days, I was part of the Jazz, Blues, and Folk Committee where we'd bring big names to campus and see them back stage. I remember BB King walking in with his big bucket of KFC and a nasty manager who wouldn't let us near him; Pat Metheny giving us a private piano concert while we cleared his stage; and Leon Redbone's deep voice. But my favorite of all was Chuck Mangione. Here's one that Feels So Good.

Here's another fun one with lots of brass.

The movie with Jimmy Stewart playing Glen Miller they had a great arrangement while the war was going on. My mom had everyone of Glen Miller's albums too. Guess that's why she wanted me to learn "In the mood" on the accordion. I still can play it to this day. LOL Great pickin's here. Thanks for the theme. Tons of fun!

Well I played your second tune first because I know that one, but your first tune I don't remember the name, but it doesn't play either. I see the video, but now sound :(

That's odd. I reloaded it, and it seems to be working this time. I hope you stop back Marie, because Mangione is amazing!
