What a wonderful world

I really enjoy these A to Z challenges on every Tuesday, and I hope my readers will follow the next turn 2014 too: I’m always surprised by other readers’ points of views; coming from different countries and cities and personal fates etc. we can find so different perspectives and experiences and lifestyles, if we take time to follow the links! This week, the challenge was related to the letter “W”, Isadora, manifesting thoughts in New York inspired me to search for the melody of WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD on my banjo, = my little tribute to Louis Armstrong and to all those people who still have the optimism to enjoy the world – whatever sometimes they have to suffer …


Café Blues

photo was shot by my wife Barbara in a Starbucks Café, SOHO, Prince Street, Manhattan – a wonderful place to rest and write and read and think – listening to blues music, drinking coffee (even tea), using a notebook via Wireless Lan – watching people going by. On the wall: a large, expressive portrait of Louis Armstrong; this photo had nearly 12,000 views in my flickr stream …

  6. I love this song Frizz, so thanks for the music. This song has been in a lot of movies with a variety of musical interpretations and I guess it will be used more, so I love to find out the new and old movies where it is played. Right now I remember a few, like “Finding Forrester”, “The wizard of oz”, “Meet Joe Black”.
    Kind greetings,
    Marianne

  9. Great playing on the banjo. This is a classic song – don’t you think? Louis Armstrong was a wonderful trumpet player and jazz representative. I love the painting of Louis. It’s a masterpiece. The artist captures his personality.
    Thanks for the tribute, Frizz. My husband and I enjoyed it a lot. We played it several times. It’s such a toe tapping song. ~~~~ : -)
