Fathers and fatherhood : Song for my father

Horace Silver Quintet: - Song For My Father


Me and my father don't talk much, or hardly at all, but he has a great blues and jazz records collection - along with the complete discography of French folk poet and singer Georges Brassens. I usually give him Cds and compilations for his birthday or for Christmas, and he looks happy.
So I guess the best song I could choose for a Father's day is a song without words. Steely Dan fans will recognize the first bars of "Ricky Don't Lose that Number".

Now I gotta go, because my 18-month old son is coming with a book he wants me to read for him.
