What We Endorsed on The Nose

The show, if you missed it, is here. But people often complain they can't write down the endorsements. 

Let me go first because my endorsement was rushed at the end. I endorsedthis (older) bookas a nice gift for someone who loves jazz standards and the American Songbook. 

I endorsed geeking out with the book and maybe getting into certain songwriters, notably Alec Wilder,whose song is featured in that Hillary Kole video. I'll put another Wilder song or two at the bottom. 

Jim endorsed this group, doing work to fight the disease he survived

He and Big Al Andersonwill play at the Iron Horse in Northampton on Boxing Day.

Luis endorsed two CDs.  This Donna Summer tribute. And this salsa compilation.

Carolyn endorsed her dance company's wild, funny take on the Nutcracker.

OK. How about some more Alec Wilder? Two more videos down below.
