Chicago Choir boy turned Gangster’s son turned rugged outdoorsman Frankie Laine, the sleepy, Sleazy bedroom music of The Mystic Moods Orchestra, a super set of over mitt, organ action, including a request for Jimmy Smith’s “Ape Women” and a Penthouse Pet.

The Lady Will Have Her Say: Oum Kalthoum

3/1 in a nutshell…

We did a few things more than once this week, ‘cuz next week we’re pre-empted by 24 hours’ worth of International Women’s Day specials. So… three “Do the Blue Beats” (and one “He Can’t Do the Blue Beat”) for your 4:00 4-in-a-row, two “Tu Sei Pallidos” (they’re Lollipops, and you’ve gotta hear Rita Pavone’s!), a C’est Toi Mon Idole (also a Lollipop) and mucho Ringrollage! Shiina’s band Tokyo Jihen have called it a career as of their final gig on Leap Day… meaning the 4th anniversary of the breakup will be in 16 years! But seriously, we’ll miss looking forward to new Jihen releases even as we eagerly anticipate wrapping our ears around numerous solo projects and collabs. The “Ooh” opened with a set of… you might say “newsworthy” Ska (check the non-reg playlist for “headlines”) and eventually progressed toward two Ska Twists. Sherwood’s set tells a proverbial thousand tales (including Teddy Charles’ vibraphonic jazz reading of Princess Scheherezade), and that should be enough to tide us over ‘til the 15th, when the Rocket Ship will once again be boarding skassengers. Bon voyage!
