In case you missed last weeks premiere of Suzanne Langlois’s Blog, “Dial ‘L’ for Lounge”, here’s Chapter 1 & Chapter 2 of this exciting new Film Noir style Novella revolving around the adventures of my alter ego, Mr. Lounge. If you have a taste for Detective Stories from the 40’s, a pinch of Pulp Fiction and a twist of Modern, your gonna love this concoction.
Mystery, music and mixology...what else do you need!

I thought it would be a perfect Retro platform to showcase my second Holiday rendition, "All Through The Night", a Welsh folk song that I updated in the Modern Lounge / Smooth Jazz genre.
With the help of Joe Grieco on piano and Tom Majesky on guitar, I came up with a contemporary groove and version yet still retaining the beauty and simplicity of the classic melody.
For the video shoot I set up a camera to capture the fireplace in HD and included a separate stereo recording of the log burning audio, to make the visual experience as real as possible.
Using this classic holiday, yet not that well know tune, enables the Yule Log video to be used throughout the year whenever a warm, cozy fire is needed.
Here's a link to last years Holiday Classic:
