PLAYLIST FOR “BATTLE OF THE HAVES AND HAVE-NOTS” (3.4.17)

6 Mar

They say that there’s more that unites us than divides us. Well, not on Turntable For One, I’m happy to say. Lots of opposing viewpoints, lots of opposing styles, and lots of songs about “having” and “not having”. And a good time was had by all…okay, maybe only by the host.

PLAYLIST FOR “BREAKING THE RECORD” (2.28.15) – AN ARCHIVE REPLAY #jazz #jazzradio #jazzsingers

1 Mar

Couldn’t do a live show last night, so I pulled from the Turntable For One archives a program I consider one of my proudest moments (you’ll notice I didn’t solicit anyone else’s opinion about that).  On this show, Turntable For One bravely went where no other radio program has tried to go. (What do they know that I don’t and when will I ever learn?) Nevertheless, throwing caution and good sense to the wind (if not good taste as well), I challenged the record for the most number of songs ever played during a Turntable For One show; and, including references from accompanists, I played 31 songs in one hour, a record I think will stand, especially on a crowded bus. But, you be the judge! Take a look at the playlist. I’d say the music was a Win-Win for me and everyone else.  

SONG TITLE  /  Artist  /  Album or CD Title

 

  •  IT DON’T MEAN A THING/I’M CHECKING OUT GOOMBYE  /  Rosemary Clooney  /  “Girl Singer”

  • BRIGAS NUNCA MAIS/FELICIDADE  /  Jackie Ryan  /  “Doozy”

  • NICE WORK IF YOU CAN GET IT/THEY CAN’T TAKE THAT AWAY FROM ME/S’WONDERFUL/SWANEE/STRIKE UP THE BAND / Sarah Vaughan  /  “Gershwin Live”
  • WATCH WHAT HAPPENS/FLY ME TO THE MOON/YOU AND THE NIGHT AND THE MUSIC/SHAKING THE BLUES AWAY  /  Mel Torme  /  “Live At Marty’s”
  • SMOKE GETS IN YOUR EYES/ALL THE THINGS YOU ARE  /  Roberta Gambarini  /  “Easy To Love”
  • I WANT TO BE HAPPY/SOMETIMES I’M HAPPY  /  Jessica Molaskey/John Pizzareli  /  “Waiting In Limbo”

PLAYLIST FOR “BREAKING THE RECORD” (3.22.14)

22 Mar

Once again Turntable For One goes where no other radio program has tried to go. (What do they know that I don’t and when will I ever learn?) I challenged the record for the most number of songs played during the show and, including references from the accompanists, I played 30 in one hour, a record I think will stand for a while – certainly a lot longer than the Duke basketball team. But take a look at the playlist. I’d say the music was a Win-Win for me and everyone else.

PLAYLIST FOR “LOVE AND MARRIAGE…AND MUSIC” (2.1.14)

1 Feb

Every week I try to play some of the best marriages of words and music, singer and arranger, what’s written on the sheet music and what’s created in a singer’s mind. This week I also focussed on singers and musicians who are married in a more literal way. Whether they sing together, sing and play, sing and arrange, just about everyone I played is also husband and wife. And by including Mickey Rooney and his 8th wife, I was also able to reinforce the precept that those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it

PLAYLIST FOR “WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL” (3.10.12)

11 Mar

Thanks for sharing Lawrence Welk’s birthday celebration with me. I will always think of him as one of those musical soldiers, who, even in the face of Daylight Saving Time, was always trying to turn the clocks back. In weeks to come you won’t want to miss other stirring Turntable For One tributes to those singers and musicians who helped make music what it is today, by retiring, giving up, getting into debilitating fistfights, and/or opening up dry cleaning shops. Bless them all.

 I’ll put up a hint about next week’s show on Wednesday, and talk to you next week.
