You're the Top

Happy birthday Cole Porter (119) and Les Paul (95).

It's pretty cool that these guys' music and innovations are still touching and influencing musicians decades after they were first produced. Even more, their contributions have absolutely wound themselves into popular culture so much most people would know of a Cole Porter song or have seen or listened to a Les Paul without even knowing it. That's pretty amazing.

Maybe tonight I'll play "Night and Day" on a Les Paul. Seems only fitting.
