It could be just another "Auld Lang Syne".... 1

But this year it features  Chicago jazz and roots veterans vocalist Solitaire Miles and Grammy laureate  pianist and harmonica virtuoso Howard Levy, so it is NOT just another “Auld Lang Syne”

In just a few more days, we’ll greet the new year with champagne, kisses, and singing at midnight. If you’re like most people, you probably aren’t totally sure what you’re singing about when you join in for the group rendition of “Auld Lang Syne.” What do these words mean?

“Auld Lang Syne” was originally a Scottish poem that was later set to music. The phrase “auld lang syne” translates literally to “old long since” in English and means something akin to “times gone by

Harmonica virtuoso Howard Levy arranges and plays both piano and harmonica to perfection here, accompanied by Solitaire Miles‘ conversational, crooning lyric which is  always behind the beat and sincere.  It’s a little wistful  but reverent in the hands of these two jazz ecclesiastics, and Levy’s master of the harmonica  and Miles’ low and soothing tones   make you feel sentimental and hopeful at the same time.  It’s just another New Year and no one is really forgotten, ever.
