An evening pause: I can think of nothing more appropriate to begin the new year with than this performance. Nothing.

Hat tip hondo.

By the way, with the New Year I am in desperate need of more Evening Pause suggestions. If you’ve sent me suggestions in the past, you know the email address. If not, post a comment here saying that you have a suggestion (without mentioning what it is) and I will email you for it.

    Now there’s a real picker-upper! Love the shoes, the hair, and the good ‘ol boys from Russia.

    Awesome… Good music knows no boundaries.

    Think we’ll ever see such a performance broadcast from Tehran…
