Bebop Spoken There

Rickie Lee Jones: "There's lots of music and not so much celebrity. I guess I'll stay here [New Orleans] for a while if it doesn't get washed away in the flood." - (The Observer 18.04.21)

Vintage Chart Toppers Episode 7

Here's the playlist of Colin Aitchison's latest RTHK radio show - Episode 7:
Woody Herman: At the Woodchoppers Ball.
Ah! how many of us, of a certain age, cut their jazz teeth on that one? In later years bands used to take it up a tone each chorus. The smart Alecs did it in semi-tones!
Billie Holiday: God Bless the Child.
These days, every nightingale sings this one but none ever matched Billie's version.
Joe Loss/Chick Henderson: Begin the Beguine.
The late Frank Wappett wrote an excellent book on Henderson. Must dig it out and read again.
(Still prefer the Artie Shaw version)!
Paul Whiteman: From Monday On.
Great arrangement for the time. Always good to hear Bix.
The Mills Brothers: Paper Doll.
I suppose these days it would be called Inflatable Doll!
Listen.
Lance.
