Santa Ana Winds

“There was a desert wind blowing that night. It was one of those hot, dry Santa Anas that come down through the mountain passes and curls your hair and makes your nerves jump and your skin itch. On nights like that every booze party ends in a fight. Meek little wives feel the edge of the carving knife and study their husbands’ necks. Anything can happen. You can even get a full glass of beer at a cocktail lounge.”
– From Raymond Chandler’s short story Red Wind

Enjoy a wonderful performance by Scorpion with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra – Wind of Change:
