Those "I Love Jazz" Moments

One night recently, as I was home struggling to convince my toddler that the floor is not where leftover food lives, John Coltrane and Duke Ellington’s “In A Sentimental Mood” came on the radio.

And then you start to wonder if the drums were even there at all during the beginning of the tune.
