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.

PLAYLIST FOR “DO AS I SAY, NOT AS I DO” RULES TO LIVE BY IN 2014 (1.4.14)

4 Jan

Most shows and hosts try give good advice, especially at this time of year. The best shows and hosts even try to model the behavior and rules they suggest. I do things differently and I think it’s a better system, one that’s much easier on me and, probably, just as effective (if not more) for you. Here are the songs that best illustrate things I won’t be doing in the new year, but you should.
