Come Sunday

I’m not a religious person, but Sunday does remain my day of rest. A good time to reflect and do some of the light chores that don’t require my full mental focus.

My music collection contains around thirty versions of Duke Ellington’s beautiful Come Sunday. Letting that list play as I do some housekeeping.

Alphabetically by artist, it starts with Abbey Lincoln and concludes with Yusef Lateef. Somewhere in the middle Cleo Laine holds forth.

Here is the great Mahalia Jackson singing it with the Duke Ellington Orchestra.
