Going Around Under an Umbrella

“Going around under an umbrella interferes with one's looking up at the sky.”

– Jerzy Kosinski



Speaking of going around under an umbrella, check out a cover of Arthur Johnston and Johnny Burke's 1936 popular song "Pennies From Heaven" by Eric Frazier and Friends featuring me, Stephanie Jeannot on vocals, the cool tap dancing of Eric Frazier and also soem outstanding musicians including Danny Mixon on keys, Sax-E on saxophone,  Dwayne "Cook" Broadnazx on drums, Paul Beaudry on bass and Eric Frazier on congas.

Together, we performed this jazz tune live at the Roosevelt Public Library in Roosevelt, NY.






Thank you for checking out my blog post. 

Today is World Water Day, which  is a great time to reflect on how fortunate those of us that have clean, safe, drinking water really are. Much of the world is not so lucky so it is critically important that we think about how we care for our precious, "Pennies from Heaven."

Have an amazing day!

    1. I know. And you should see the room that the stage faces. Humongous.

  4. I had read about World Water Day. One suggestion was a bottle flipping contest. I have banned bottle flipping from my classroom (the constant thumps were driving me bonkers). But today I will allow it.

  9. Such a great quote and it's so important that we don't forget about those who don't have access to clean water. It's something we should never take for granted.

  11. Oh boy, what a great quote. While I do love a cute umbrella I always seem to leave mine at home, so I definitely end up seeing plenty of the sky as I rush to/from my vehicle. ;)

  12. Pennies from Heaven is a fantastic song. I am very thankful to have access to clean water. I think it is terrible people have to walk so far to get it.

  13. Beautiful song and voice! I was not aware of the significance of the day, but it is the perfect time to try and give back but also be aware of how lucky I am. SO many people struggle for water.
