Kissimmee Anointed & Revisited

This is a photo of the «Hot Club de Portugal», in Lisbon, which is celebrating this year its 60th Anniversary. I dedicate this post to George Townboy, from [Kissimmee] Daily Photoblog, thanking him for all the extraordinary posts dedicated to Atlântico Azul!
I also dedicate to him the song «Take Five», by Al Jarreau (an amazing live performance in 1977, from the album «Look into the rainbow»), the first music now playing at Radio Atlantico Azul!!!... Please take a look at the lyrics! I imagine him taking photos in Kissimmee and singing this song!... I hope CDPB finally admits his wonderful blog at the community!...
«Won't you stop and take a little time out with me, just take five! Stop your busy day and take the time out to see if I'm alive! Though I'm going out of my way just so I can pass by each day Not a single word do we say, it's a pantomime and not a play Still, I know our eyes often meet, I feel tingles down to my feet When you smile, that's much too discreet, sends me on my way Wouldn't it be better not to be so polite, you could offer a light Start a little conversation now, it's alright, just take five, just take five ~ IMPROVISATION ~ (Repeat from 2nd verse to end)

The second music now playing is dedicated to «Uma por Dia», who doesn't like to go to the beach with alligators.

It's called «Saeglopur», from the album «TAK» of «Sigur Ros», a fabulous Band from Iceland!!!

(will make a special dedication to her in another post)

Great picture, as always!
Happy Birthday "Hot Club"!
(... and you know, SG, about those shamelessly things I can't resist doing with some of your pictures, don't you? This one's even more shameless because it's dedicated to someone else, but I hope they don't mind...)
