Song Of The Day 1/10/2017: Jamison Ross – “Bye Bye Blues (Pts. I & II)”
In the midst of all that I paused to listen to Jamison's cover of "Bye Bye Blues," which comprise the last two songs on his 2015 debut album. There's an inherent sadness to the tune that Jamison acknowledged when I spoke to him. It's what I felt walking down Rainier listening to it. The first part sounds like he's singing to get released to a higher plane, the second part sounds funereal, that the release he needs is only going to come after at least one more terrible trial.
Probably not the last time I'm going to be playing this to myself over the next ten days.
