Monday Music Quote: Chinese Proverb

A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song.
-- Chinese Proverb 
 Happy Chinese New Year! Over at Hear and Play, they offer a singing course called Vocal Mastery System (affiliate link). I believe it is the only one that has to do with voice instruction. All the other dvd and cd music resources are geared for playing the piano by ear or for guitar and drums.

With Valentine's Day approaching, I have tons of Jazz standard songs to share from my book, so I thought I would start early.

The Best Jazz Standards Ever (The Best Ever Series)

Isn't It Romantic? 
from the Paramount Picture Love Me Tonight

I've never met you, yet never doubt, dear;

If dreams are made of imagination
