PLAYLIST FOR “TWO SHOWS FROM THE ARCHIVE” (2.27.16) #jazz #jazzradio #jazzsingers

27 Feb

I played two shows from the archive while I took a Saturday off to gather my thoughts. I should have brought a leaf rake. First up was “All Talk Radio!” a show from last fall after an exciting two weeks at Pundit Training Camp where I learned the valuable lessons all pundits and news commentators know, such as: it’s not what you have to say, but how long it takes you to say it. Oh, I could have talked on and on and on and on about this, but I filled up most of the hour with some great songs about talking. 

SONG TITLE  /  Artist  /  CD Or Album Title

  • HAPPY TALK  /  Nancy Wilson & Cannonball Adderley/  “Nancy Wilson & Cannonball Adderley”
  • TALK TO ME, TALK TO ME  /   Freddie Cole  /  “Talk To Me”
  • TALK TO ME BABY  /  Cleo Laine  /  “Quintessential Cleo”
  • YOUR MIND IS ON VACATION  /  Mose Allison  /  “Lounge Live From The Mountain Stage”
  • GIRL TALK  /  Holly Cole  /  “Girl Talk”
  • TALK TO ME  /  Frank Sinatra  /  “The Complete Capitol Singles”

  • WORDS  /  The Real Group  /  “Live In Japan”

 

The second show, “The Complaint Department,” first aired 3 years ago. The only complaint I want to hear after the show is from your neighbors because you were playing the music too loud.

After Sandy stormed through, I thought a show short on silliness and longer on reflection was needed. Back to business next Saturday night.
