PLAYLIST FOR “EITHER/OR” (11.21.15) #jazz #jazzradio #jazzsingers

22 Nov

Each week when I’m putting together a show, I have to decide between so many choices – either a new singer or a classic one; either a familiar song or something more recent; and, most important of all, either libel or slander.  This week I decided to let the singers wrestle with their own Either/Or decisions. Why should I have to do all the work?

SONG TITLE  /  Artist  /  CD Or Album Title

  • ALL OR NOTHING AT ALL  /  Kurt Elling  /  “Dedicated To You: Kurt Elling Sings The Music of Coltrane & Hartman”
  • GOTTA BE THIS OR THAT  /  Kim Nazarian & John Pizzarelli  /  “Some Morning”
  • THEY’RE EITHER TOO YOUNG OR TOO OLD  /  Rosemary Clooney  /  “For The Duration”
  • BUT BEAUTIFUL  /  Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga   /  “Cheek To Cheek”
  • COME RAIN OR COME SHINE  /  Sinne Eeg & Thomas Fonnesbaek  /  “Eeg & Fonnesbaek”
  • LOVE ME OR LEAVE ME  /  Jenna Mammina & Rolf Sturm  /  “Spark”
  • WITH OR WITHOUT YOU  /  (Mystery Vocalist)  /  Jackie Evancho  /  “Awakening”
  • SUMMER, HIGHLAND FALLS  /  Billy Joel  /  “The Complete Albums Collection”
  • TULIP OR TURNIP  /  Bill Henderson  /  “Live At The Vic”
  • IS YOU IS OR IS YOU AIN’T MY BABY  /  Melissa Morgan  /  “Until I Met You”
  • I HOPE YOU DANCE  /  Deborah Lippmann & Savion Glover  /  “Nightingale”
  • PARIS MISMATCH  /  (Theme Music)  /  Cody Owen Stine

 

Don’t forget: It’s not an “either/or” question when it comes to listening to Turntable For One. Missed the Saturday night live show? Don’t cry. Please. You know how I hate it when you cry. You can always listen to a Turntable For One podcast on PRX, The Public Radio Exchange. Just click the link below:
