Many have played this Joaquín Rodrigo composition but in my opinion this group of musicians interpreted it into a stunning Masterpiece that no one else will ever touch.

This album titled song was composed by Gerry Mulligan and this particular piece to me is straight out of the jazz history books. It is a timeless mood for those of us who like the wee hours of the morning and the dark we seem so accustomed to as if 3:00am is the norm.
It reminds me of either driving around or sitting down by Detroit’s riverfront on a hot summer night when it’s still 80 degrees out in the middle of the night.
