PLAYLIST FOR “YEAR IN REVIEW 2019” (12.28.19)

29 Dec

I took a look back at some of my favorite themes from 2019 and some of my favorite songs from them. (BTW: The first song refers to one of my favorite jokes from this year: Because of climate change and rising sea levels, what city will become the new capital of the East Coast?) So what have we learned this year? I learned we’d better hope we’re being graded on a curve.

PLAYLIST FOR “HAPPY 100th BIRTHDAY, NAT COLE!” (9.21.19)

21 Sep

Nat Cole would be 100 years old this year if he hadn’t died when he was 45. I suppose I should say something about how his music has lived on or how his legacy has lived on or how he has influenced so many singers and pianists. But, really, I just wanted to play some music I wanted to hear. In other words, it was business as usual at Turntable For One. But I was surprised to find so many tribute albums and pleased to include some from singers in Sweden, Belgium, and Mexico. Also gave a 100th birthday shout-out to George Shearing. But I don’t think he was listening.
