Welcome to the Frog Pond! If you're new here, make sure to visit our FAQ!

It’s Wednesday, but on a holiday week. For some of us that means a shortened work week. Maybe a quieter news cycle. Many of us here in the US will spend the day with family (hopefully minus the bickering). I’ll be out of town Thursday. But I will be dropping by a bit throughout Wednesday. In the meantime, let’s start things with a collaboration – Herbie Hancock and Foday Musa Suso recorded this lovely piece for the 1984 Summer Olympics:

In a lot of ways it is a product of its time, but it was track like this that paved the way for what would follow. Plus this is just so catchy.

Bar is open, and hopefully we’ll see our favorite bartender return. Jukebox is ready as well. Plenty of room here so sit a spell if you are so inclined.

Cheers!
