PLAYLIST FOR “CONTRAFACTUM – AN ARCHIVE RE-BROADCAST” (12.26.20)

27 Dec

Out with the old? That’s what I did. I played an archive show from last June as the final program for this wretched year. Let’s hope for better – and I mean the new year, certainly not my shows. Here’s what I wrote in June:

Contrafactum – it’s not just a word on Jeopardy.  Contrafactum are two different songs with the same melody but different lyrics. To jazz musicians, they are two tunes with the same chordal structure. (I tossed a few of those in for good measure – excuse the pun.) Who said educational radio is dead? Probably somebody who has listened to my show.
