6 Degrees of Glockenspiel: Le Sucrier Velours / Duke Ellington

Le Sucrier Velours (1805) by Claude-Mathieu FessardLe Sucrier Velours / Duke Ellington as performed by Chicago Underground Orchestra from Playground [Delmark, 1998]

Le Sucrier Velour is the name of a bird in France. I have seen pictures of it and think it is a good name for the bird. But after thinking more, I believe a more fitting sight, that encroaches on the domain or sense of taste, is the almost-moustache, the fuzz over the corners of the upper lip of a sweet girl.
