Sonny Rollins – “St. Thomas”

Occasionally, and entirely unbidden, the refrain of “St. Thomas” comes whistling out of my mouth. It’s not a conscious choice; I’m walking along, thinking about Fischer-Dieskau’s “Winterreise” when BAM! I’m poorly whistling the opening notes. 

“St. Thomas” is a song I associate with great happiness, so it’s never unwelcome. But the timing is always a mystery to me.
