Really can't let this day go by without a celebratory nod in the direction of these three legends. Let's begin with Ray's "Georgia on My Mind." Here's a live performance with the Edmonton Symphony, posted by Eagle Rock. In the physical world, Ray would be 83 years old today.
Now then: Here's the legendary John Coltrane in a beautiful rendition of the ballad, "My Ideal." John would be 87 today.
Finally, here's The Boss, who turns 64 today. Hard to believe he's this close to qualifying for a Medicare card. Here's a memorable performance of "American Skin (41 Shots)."
