The Hudson River Blues – A Short Story Reading by Charles E.J. Moulton


The Hudson River Blues – A Short Story  Reading by Charles E.J. Moulton.

My story was written in 2017 and published 2020 by the online magazine Aaduna. My poetry version of the story was set to music by Melvin Edmondson and the song is also available for watching via YouTube, along with other of our songs.   Henry never forgot Olivia. He even wrote her a song. He lost touch with her, but his heart still yearns for her love…  The story is dedicated to New York City, to swing music and to sweet kisses and caresses in the moonlight…
