Singin in and out of the Rain

Well here it is Christmas Day - turns up every year just like Singin' in the Rain which I watched for the zilionth time (in case I forgot the words - not the words of the song but the script!) Still it is a good film particularly the Broadway Melody section with Gene Kelly and Cyd Charisse - those legs, that tune, those legs.)
Film over, Coq Au Vin digested, I found some more music on YouTube. My dear friend Sarah Ellen Hughes singing But Not For Me at the Imperial Wharf Jazz Festival. Watch out too for the Jazzcotech Dancers - Nicholas Brothers in the making.
Click here and Merry Christmas Sarah.
