74: “Where Flamingos Fly” by Jeanne Lee and Ran Blake

Not just any old white dude in a suit with a beard at a piano.This album is only available by import (and insanely expensive!), but the song is hypnotizing, so I thought I’d share.  Ran Blake is an American pianist and composer.  Way back in 1961, he and vocalist Jeanne Lee created a riveting album called The Newest Sound Around.  Ran is still kickin’ but Jeanne left us back in 2000.

Here’s a little taste.  Enjoy.
