PLAYLIST FOR “OLDIES BUT GOODIES WEEK” – AN ARCHIVE ENCORE (1.17.15) #jazz

19 Jan

Couldn’t do a live show this week, so I reached into the Turntable For One archives for an oldie but goodie – which happened to be “Oldies But Goodies Week.” 

It was “Oldies But Goodies Week” on the show this week, but I didn’t mean the songs. I meant the singers! To sing on this week’s show you needed to be 70-years-old at least; or if you weren’t 70, you had to be accompanied by (at least) a septuagenarian. By the time I’m in my 70s, I hope still to be cutting my own meat. But look what these singers produced even in the late stages of their careers.  

SONG TITLE  /  Artist  /  CD Or Album Title

 

  • ANYTHING GOES  /  Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga  /  “Cheek To Cheek”
  • WONDER WHY  /  Carmen McRae & Shirley Horn Trio  /  “Sarah – Dedicated To You”
  • LIVING WITHOUT YOU  /  Bill Henderson  /  “Live At The Vic”
  • BABY DREAM YOUR DREAM  /  Marlene VerPlank  /  “Ballads mostly…”
  • THE JUG AND I  /  Ernie Andrews  /  “The L.A. Treasures Project”  
  • ILL WIND  /  Charlie Haden With Nora Jones  /  “Sophisticated Ladies”
  • YOUNG AT HEART  /  (Mystery Vocalist)  /  George Burns & Bobby Vinton  /  “As Time Goes By”
  • YOU’D BE SO NICE TO COME HOME TO  /  Freda Payne  /  “Come Back To Me Love”
  • RICH INTERIOR LIFE  /  Ben Sidran  /  “Don’t Cry For No Hipster”
  • MAYBE  /  Lena Horne  /  “An Evening With Lena Horne”
  • OH YOU CRAZY MOON  /  Frank D’Rone  /  “Double Exposure”
  • ALICE IN WONDERLAND  /  Dave Brubeck & Roberta Gambarini  /  “Everybody Wants To Be A Cat”
  • PARIS MISMATCH  /  (Theme Music)  /  Cody Owen Stine  /  

 

I’ll have a new hint for this Saturday’s show on Wednesday. But don’t forget, Turntable For One is always ready to please you. (What else in your life can make that promise?) Click on the link below to listen to a Turntable For One podcast on PRX, The Public Radio Exchange.
