PLAYLIST FOR “A MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO CLIMATE CHANGE” (10.19.19)

20 Oct

The earth is heating up, ice caps and glaciers are melting, the seas are rising, and many species, including our own, are threatened with extinction. What are we going to do? Well, I did what I always do: I exploited these serious problems, trivializing them with two hours of catchy, swinging, and often ironic songs. Some of them were comments on current conditions; others were things we need to curtail to save the planet. The first song was an answer to “What’s going to be the new capital city of the East Coast?” The second song was written in 1921 but casts an eerie darkness to what’s going on today. Just to be a pro-active citizen, I recycled and re-used a previous mystery vocalist. And as for the last two songs: which one will future generations be singing? That’s up to us now.

PLAYLIST FOR “SALUTE TO THE GRAMMYS” (2.6.16) #jazz #jazzsingers #jazzradio #grammys

7 Feb

I gave my salute to the Grammys this week with almost every song and CD either a Grammy nominee or a past Grammy winner…of course I couldn’t resist throwing in a few categories I think the Grammys have overlooked. I also nominated the cover below for album cover of the year and told the audience I’d be posting it. Beautiful CD and beautiful cover. Feel free to discuss.
