An odd thing to say. He acceded to the throne when his brother was murdered. I don't think writing three songs that year made it a "very good year" on balance. “1946 would be a very good year for the King, not only did he ascend to the throne of Thailand ….”

Love At Sundown shows what a big talent HM King Bhumibol has for jazz and I am surprised it is not more documented in Thai media circles. It must have taken a lot of research to put this article together, well worth the effort. <abbr><em>Hoo Dons last blog post..<a href="http://www.thaisabai.org/?p=3173" rel="nofollow">Cobra - King of My Fears</a></abbr></em> I have read before about His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej and his love for jazz music but this is the first time I have heard some of his music.

What a dark horse coming from Thailand and all those famous namedropping jazz icons. I suppose that's the privelige you get being the King. Rather ironic as jazz originated from Africa and was brought over and cultured during the slave trade! Very well written. Royal Jazz.

I'm sure the older generation knows all too well about his jazz playing...probably doesn't click too much with the younger generation though.

You did well tracking down the music. Interesting post. Talen although I was aware of HM Kings talent it does make me wonder how many Thais are familiar?
