HINT FOR THIS SATURDAY NIGHT’S THEME (2.1.14)

29 Jan

HINT: 

A great song is the perfect marriage of words and music. Great jazz is the perfect marriage of freedom and control. A great arrangement is the perfect marriage of singer and orchestra. Can you think of another kind of perfect marriage in music? I can.

14 Jan

Saturday night’s show will be a program from the vast and qualitatively unfathomable Turntable For One archives. The results are known only to the accounting firm of Ernst and Young, but those number crunchers won’t return any of my calls.  So your guess is as good as mine.

By the way, a new podcast has been posted on PRX, the Public Radio Exchange. Better get there before the crowd turns ugly.

HINT:

Every great song is a marriage between words and music; every great recording is a marriage between artist and arranger. But what about performances which represent yet another kind of marriage? I’ve got an hour of those planned for Saturday!
