It's Istanbul Not Constantinople

This is me venturing off the beaten path and posting something you wouldn't normally hear. First off, even though you may not recognize the original Four Lads sample from Istanbul in 1953, you may associate the general swing sound with Harry Richman's Puttin on the Ritz. I know that's where I initially went when I tried to put my finger on it. Crazy how a song can morph over almost a century and still be relevant.

It just so happens that Milan & Phoenix released a video for the track below and it's just as throw back as you'd imagine.

S/O to all the folks who thought the music I was posting was getting to be predictable. Shoot if I knew what music I planned to post new week, all the fun would be taken out of it...#YOLO
