Thanksgiving Jazz

This week on Hot Air, it's all about being grateful for great jazz. We celebrate the Thanksgiving long weekend with songs that give thanks. From Duke Ellington to Don Thompson, our cup runneth over. We've even got some cooking tips from Ella Fitzgerald herself. There's not a turkey in the bunch!
