PLAYLIST FOR “NOSTALGIA NIGHT” (11.18.17)

18 Nov

I thought about the good old days this week, when I was smart and my phone was dumb, when a blue state was me having a bad day, and when Harvey was a six-foot invisible rabbit you really wanted to see and not a creep you never want to see again. We can’t live in the past, but I don’t mind an occasional visit.

PLAYLIST FOR “COULDA, WOULDA, SHOULDA” (8.30.14)

30 Aug

Summer is over which means time to put away put away your whites, your shorts, your suntan lotion, and reflect on the things we did last summer that we’ll remember all winter long — except I had one of those “Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda” summers when I didn’t do any of the things I wanted and meant to do. Am I bitter? No more than usual. Am I depressed? (See previous response.) Because I have developed the useful skill of turning my pain in art…well, actually, other people do all the art. So are some of my favorite “Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda” songs by some of the best new and old jazz singers. Check back on Wednesday for a hint about next Saturday night’s show.
