Jay ends this episode with the beloved theme song to The Jeffersons, “Movin’ on Up.” It was co-written and sung by Ja’net DuBois, who died recently. Also in this episode you have two arias by Handel; a piano piece by Ravel, miraculously played; some little-known Mozart, which is knockout; and yet more. Take a break away, as Jay says.

Music played:

Handel, “Bel piacere,” from Agrippina

Galuppi, Andante from the Keyboard Sonata No. 5 in C major

Handel, “Pensieri, voi mi tormentate,” from Agrippina

Ravel, “Une barque sur l’océan,” from Miroirs

Mozart, Chaconne from the ballet music to Idomeneo

DuBois-Barry, “Movin’ on Up
