LAist was doing some upgrading Sunday morning and afternoon so we couldn't do all the posts that we wanted to do.

But we are glad that everything is working well enough for us to post this little slideshow featuring the song by Count Basie.

We in LA were very lucky to be so tied to Jackie's memory today and we hope his inspiration stays with us for more than just a few days.
