Noon Edition

Java Jive: Jazz Coffee Songs

On this edition of Night Lights it's "Java Jive: Jazz Coffee Songs," a caffeinated brew of music to help keep your weekend warm. The program includes classics such as Sarah Vaughan's "Black Coffee" (as well as Sonny Criss' mid-1960s instrumental version) and obscurities such as the Larks' "Coffee, Cigarettes and Tears," in addition to Jeri Southern's "Coffee, Cigarettes and Memories," Carmen McRae's "Coffeetime" (an ode to bohemian coffeehouses from the 1960 film The Subterraneans), Barry Harris' "Morning Coffee," the Boswell Sisters' "Coffee in the Morning (Kisses at Night)" and a host of other buzz-inducing odes to the world's most popular beverage.
