9/16/2008 Dig Up The Roots

 

Thousands of years of recent finds and rediscoveries played out over these two hours. We started with the hippest of all Al Jazzbeaux Collins Slim Gaillard as high as ever in the clouds with the Jolly Green Giant. The Beatniks take over for a while with some rare amd amazing material featured on an album called Pictures From The Gone World: Beat Jazz. Tangents include Schoolhouse Rock songs with vocals by Bob Dorough, Blossom Dearie Grady Tate. We also heard two songs of the Music Halls from pioneering Male Impersonator Vesta Tilley.

Musical machines took over with recordings from vintage Arcade Machines. The a href=http://www.museemechanique.org/index.htmlMusee Mecanique/a is filled with the history of arcade games, music machines and amazing sounds. Bring a roll of quarters. The other machine belonged to Korla Pandit, the Grand Media Moghul of Mellow. Soothing 1950's housewives angst with his dreamy stare...ahhh. We hear some selections from a mint 78 RPM set called The Grand Moghul Suite.
