"MacArthur Park" is a song written by Jimmy Webb (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jimmy_Webb) that was originally composed as part of an intended cantata (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Cantata). Although it was initially rejected by The Association (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Association_(band)),[1] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-0) Richard Harris (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Richard_Harris) was the first to record the song in 1968 that was subsequently covered (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Cover_version) by numerous artists. Among the best known covers of the song are Donna Summer (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Donna_Summer)'s disco arrangement from 1978 and Waylon Jennings' version recorded in 1969. Maynard Ferguson (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Maynard_Ferguson),[2] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-1) Stan Kenton (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Stan_Kenton),[3] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-2) and Woody Herman (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Woody_Herman) all performed big-band jazz (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jazz) arrangements of the pop song.
There was some debate as to whether the name applies to the noted park of the same name (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/MacArthur_Park) off Wilshire Boulevard (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Wilshire_Boulevard) in Los Angeles (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Los_Angeles), or to the less-known MacArthur Park in Little Rock, Arkansas (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Little_Rock,_Arkansas). In a 2007 interview with The Los Angeles Times (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Los_Angeles_Times) Webb said the MacArthur Park in Los Angeles was a place where he and his girlfriend frequently met. In an interview with Terry Gross broadcast on NPR July 22, and recorded in 2004, Jimmy Webb said it was about the park in Los Angeles, and the park had been changed in the years since he wrote about it.

My Favorite Things

John Coltrane, live video
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0I6xkVRWzCY (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0I6xkVRWzCY)

Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQoZJLy8utw (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQoZJLy8utw)

"My Favorite Things" is a show tune (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Show_tune) from the 1959 (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/1959_in_music) Rodgers and Hammerstein (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Rodgers_and_Hammerstein) musical (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Musical_theatre) The Sound of Music (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Sound_of_Music).

The Sound of Music version

The song was first introduced by Mary Martin (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Mary_Martin) in the original Broadway (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Broadway_theater) production, and sung by Julie Andrews (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Julie_Andrews) in the 1965 film adaptation. (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Sound_of_Music_(film))
In the musical the lyrics to the song are a reference to things Maria (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Maria_von_Trapp) loves such as 'raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens'. These are the things she selects to fill her mind with when times are bad.
The original Broadway musical places this song in the Mother Abbess's office, just before she sends Maria (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Maria_von_Trapp) to serve Captain von Trapp (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Georg_Ritter_von_Trapp)'s family as governess to his seven children. However, Ernest Lehman (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ernest_Lehman), the screenwriter for the film adaptation, repositioned this song so that Maria would sing it with the children during the thunderstorm scene in her bedroom, replacing "The Lonely Goatherd (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Lonely_Goatherd)", which had originally been sung at this point. Many stage productions also make this change, shifting "The Lonely Goatherd" to another scene.
The wintertime imagery of some of the lyrics has made "My Favorite Things" a popular song during the Christmas (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Christmas) season, and it often appears on holiday-themed albums and compilations, although in the show and movie it is sung during a summer thunderstorm.
The first section of the melody has the distinctive property of using only the notes 1, 2, and 5 (Do, Re, and Sol) of the scale. Rodgers then harmonized this same section of the melody differently in different stanzas, using a series of minor triads one time and major triads the next.
The song ends with a borrowed line of lyric and notes from Rodgers' earlier composition with Lorenz Hart (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Lorenz_Hart), "Glad to Be Unhappy (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Glad_to_Be_Unhappy)," a standard about finding peace in the midst of unrequited love. Using the same two notes for the phrasing of "so sad" in the original song, Rodgers brings the gloom of my "Favorite Things" to a similar upbeat ending – "and then I don't feel so bad."
Other versions


The song was a hit in 1968 by Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Herb_Alpert_%26_The_Tijuana_Brass) on A&M 1001 (45rpm). The song has become a jazz standard (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jazz_standard), and has been performed by artists as diverse as:

Coltrane's album of the same name (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/My_Favorite_Things_(album)) has been a landmark in the history of jazz for numerous reasons, not least for the rediscovery of soprano sax. One of the best vocal version is performed by Al Jarreau in his first album "1965".
The song was mixed by audio-trickster (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Culture_jamming) collective Negativland (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Negativland) on their album No Business (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/No_Business), which was released in 2005 (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/2005_in_music).
The Lennon Sisters (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Lennon_Sisters)' version of this song appeared in Terry Gilliam (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Terry_Gilliam)'s 1998 film adaptation (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Fear_and_Loathing_in_Las_Vegas_(film)) of Hunter S. Thompson (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Hunter_S._Thompson)'s gonzo (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Gonzo_journalism) novel Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Fear_and_Loathing_in_Las_Vegas). The song is played during the beginning, juxtaposed with various images from the 1960s.
"My Favorite Things" is also said to have been Michael Jackson (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Michael_Jackson)'s favorite song of all time, alongside Charlie Chaplin's "Smile".
The song was parodied on The Chaser's War on Everything (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Chaser%27s_War_on_Everything) as "My Least Favorite Things".
The song was also parodied in the bridge of the Panic! at the Disco (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Panic!_at_the_Disco) song, "Build God, Then We'll Talk (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Build_God,_Then_We%27ll_Talk)". The nature of the song as a list of objects lends itself to easy parodies with alternate objects, as was done by Doonesbury (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Doonesbury), Garfield (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Garfield), and many others.
The version of this song performed by Björk (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Bj%C3%B6rk) (also played the leading role) has been used in Lars von Trier (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Lars_von_Trier)'s film Dancer in the Dark (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Dancer_in_the_Dark) (2000).
The version sung by Tony Bennett (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Tony_Bennett) was used in the HBO mini-series From the Earth to the Moon (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/From_the_Earth_to_the_Moon) in episode 4, "1968"
It has also been used recently in Cake (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Cake_(advert)), a 2007 advertisement for the Skoda Fabia (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Skoda_Fabia). The same year, it was used in an advertisement for the MasterCard (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/MasterCard) credit card. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, the song was used in commercials for Mitsubishi (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Mitsubishi) cars.
A filk (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Filk_music) version of the song with lyrics revolving around old age, first seen on the Usenet newsgroup alt.idiots in June 2001, has become attached to an urban legend (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Urban_legend) claiming that it was sung by Julie Andrews (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Julie_Andrews) herself at a benefit concert for AARP (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/AARP).[2] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-1)[3] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-2)
Lil Wayne (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Lil_Wayne) and Juelz Santana (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Juelz_Santana) used the sample tune and different lyrics set to the tune in a song, "Favorite Things", on their Blow: The 'I Can't Feel My Face (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/I_Can%27t_Feel_My_Face)' Prequel album.
The song was included in the version of the complete musical The Sound of Music (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Sound_of_Music) as performed at Dingwalls, London by Repetition and the Repetitions in 1980, comprising Nag and Bendle (from The Door and The Window) and Giblet (from the 49 Americans). The album was subsequently released on cassette.
The song is parodied in Billy Crystal's farewell song to comedian Jay Leno on Jay's second-to-last night as host of the Tonight Show (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Tonight_Show). Crystal changes most of the lyrics into various car models.

Gloomy Sunday

Artie Shaw and Orchestra

Billie Holiday

"Gloomy Sunday" is a song composed by Hungarian (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Hungary) pianist and composer Rezső Seress (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Rezs%C5%91_Seress) in 1933 to a Hungarian poem written by László Jávor (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/L%C3%A1szl%C3%B3_J%C3%A1vor) (original Hungarian title of both song and poem "Szomorú vasárnap" (Hungarian pronunciation: [ˈsomoruː ˈvɒʃaːrnɒp] (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Wikipedia:IPA_for_Hungarian)), in which the singer reflects on the horrors of modern culture.[1] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-0)
Though recorded and performed by many singers, "Gloomy Sunday" is closely associated with Billie Holiday (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Billie_Holiday), who scored a hit version of the song in 1941. Owing to unsubstantiated urban legends (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Urban_legend) about its inspiring hundreds of suicides, "Gloomy Sunday" was dubbed the "Hungarian suicide song" in the United States. Seress did commit suicide in 1968, but most other rumors of the song being banned from radio, or sparking suicides, are unsubstantiated, and were partly propagated as a deliberate marketing campaign.[2] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-1) Possibly due to the context of the Second World War, though, Billie Holiday's version was banned by the BBC (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/BBC).[3] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-The_music_the_BBC_banned-2)

Szomorú Vasárnap

Szomorú vasárnap száz fehér virággal
Vártalak kedvesem templomi imával
Álmokat kergető vasárnap délelőtt
Bánatom hintaja nélküled visszajött
Azóta szomorú mindig a vasárnap
Könny csak az italom kenyerem a bánat...

Szomorú vasárnap

Utolsó vasárnap kedvesem gyere el
Pap is lesz, koporsó, ravatal, gyászlepel
Akkor is virág vár, virág és - koporsó
Virágos fák alatt utam az utolsó
Nyitva lesz szemem hogy még egyszer lássalak
Ne félj a szememtől holtan is áldalak...

Utolsó vasárnap

— László Jávor original Hungarian version

There have been several urban legends (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Urban_legend) regarding the song over the years, mostly involving it being allegedly connected with various numbers of suicides, and radio networks reacting by purportedly banning the song. However, most of these claims are unsubstantiated.[4] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-3)
In January 1968, Rezső Seress, the original composer, committed suicide in Budapest; he survived jumping out of a window, but later in the hospital choked himself to death with a wire. His obituary in the New York Times mentions the song's notorious reputation :
“Budapest, January 13. Rezsoe Seres, whose dirge-like song hit, "Gloomy Sunday" was blamed for touching off a wave of suicides during the nineteen-thirties, has ended his own life as a suicide it was learned today. Authorities disclosed today that Mr. Seres jumped from a window of his small apartment here last Sunday, shortly after his 69th birthday.
The decade of the nineteen-thirties was marked by severe economic depression and the political upheaval that was to lead to World War II. The melancholy song written by Mr. Seres, with words by his friend, Ladislas Javor, a poet, declares at its climax, "My heart and I have decided to end it all." It was blamed for a sharp increase in suicides, and Hungarian officials finally prohibited it. In America, where Paul Robeson introduced an English version, some radio stations and nightclubs forbade its performance.
Mr. Seres complained that the success of "Gloomy Sunday" actually increased his unhappiness, because he knew he would never be able to write a second hit.

—The New York Times, January 14, 1968, [5] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-4)

Gloomy Sunday

Gloomy Sunday with a hundred white flowers
I was waiting for you my dearest with a prayer
A Sunday morning, chasing after my dreams
The carriage of my sorrow returned to me without you
It is since then that my Sundays have been forever sad
Tears my only drink, the sorrow my bread...

Gloomy Sunday

This last Sunday, my darling please come to me
There'll be a priest, a coffin, a catafalque and a winding-sheet
There'll be flowers for you, flowers and a coffin
Under the blossoming trees it will be my last journey
My eyes will be open, so that I could see you for a last time
Don't be afraid of my eyes, I'm blessing you even in my death...

The last Sunday

In 1997 Billy Mackenzie (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Billy_Mackenzie), vocalist with Scottish (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Scotland) band The Associates (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Associates) (who recorded a cover of Holiday's version in 1982), committed suicide near his father's home in Dundee (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Dundee).
The codifying of the urban legend appears in an article attributed to "D.P. MacDonald" and titled "Overture to Death", the text of which has been reproduced and disseminated countless times online. According to the website of Phespirit (http://www.phespirit.info/gloomysunday/article_01.htm) the article was originally published by the 'Justin and Angi' site to augment their now defunct "Gloomy Sunday Radio Show". Their introduction to the article reads:
“This message was forwarded to us by a visitor to our web site. There is some good historical information on the song intermixed with some information of more dubious repute. The accounts begin to take on the feel of a satiric e-mail chain letter after a while, but then, sometimes truth is indeed stranger than fiction. The story does read a little bit like the script of a segment from Strange Universe! So take this with a grain of salt ..... The text was [supposedly] quoted from the Cincinnati (sic) Journal of C…”

[edit (http://forum.xnxx.com/w/index.php?title=Gloomy_Sunday&action=edit&section=3)] Recorded versions

There are two English-language versions of the lyrics. The first, by Desmond Carter, was used in the 1935 Paul Robeson (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Paul_Robeson) recording and a few others. Most English-language recordings have used the Sam Lewis (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Sam_M._Lewis) lyrics made famous in Billie Holiday (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Billie_Holiday)'s 1941 recording. That recording added a third verse, not in the original Hungarian song, indicating that the singer was only dreaming about her lover's death. See links below for the lyrics.

Artists who have recorded or reinterpreted the song include:

Mack The Knife

Bobby Darin
"Mack the Knife" or "The Ballad of Mack the Knife", originally "Die Moritat von Mackie Messer", is a song composed by Kurt Weill (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Kurt_Weill) with lyrics by Bertolt Brecht (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Bertolt_Brecht) for their music drama Die Dreigroschenoper, or, as it is known in English (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/English_language), The Threepenny Opera (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Threepenny_Opera). It premiered in Berlin (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Berlin) in 1928 at the Theater am Schiffbauerdamm (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Theater_am_Schiffbauerdamm). The song has become a popular standard (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Standard_(music)).

[edit (http://forum.xnxx.com/w/index.php?title=Mack_the_Knife&action=edit&section=1)] The Threepenny Opera

A moritat (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Cantastoria) (from mori meaning "deadly" and tat meaning "deed") is a medieval (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Middle_Ages) version of the murder ballad (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Murder_ballad) performed by strolling minstrels (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Minstrel). In The Threepenny Opera, the moritat singer with his street organ introduces and closes the drama with the tale of the deadly Mackie Messer, or Mack the Knife, a character based on the dashing highwayman (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Highwayman) Macheath in John Gay (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/John_Gay)'s The Beggar's Opera (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Beggar%27s_Opera). The Brecht-Weill version of the character was far more cruel and sinister, and has been transformed into a modern anti-hero (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Anti-hero).
The play opens with the moritat singer comparing Macheath (unfavorably) with a shark (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Shark), and then telling tales of his robberies (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Robbery), murders (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Murder), rapes (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Rape), and arson (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Arson).
[edit (http://forum.xnxx.com/w/index.php?title=Mack_the_Knife&action=edit&section=2)] Original German text

The song was inserted in the play shortly before its premičre in 1928, because Harald Paulsen (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Harald_Paulsen), who created the role of Macheath, wished a more effective introduction of his character.[1] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-0) The original German text is:[2] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-1)
German (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/German_language)literal English (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/English_language) translationUnd der Haifisch, der hat Zähne,Und die trägt er im Gesicht.Und Macheath, der hat ein Messer,Doch das Messer sieht man nicht.And the shark, it has teeth,And it wears them in its face.And Macheath, he has a knife,But the knife one doesn't see.
At the 1928 premičre, the Moritat was sung by Kurt Gerron (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Kurt_Gerron), who was a noted film and stage actor in Germany, and who also played the part of the Police Chief Brown. Weill also intended for the Moritat to be accompanied by a barrel organ, which was to be played by the singer.[3] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-2)

Turk Murphy (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Turk_Murphy)
The song was first introduced to American audiences in the first English-language production of The Threepenny Opera, which played on Broadway in 1933. The English lyrics were by Gifford Cochran (http://forum.xnxx.com/w/index.php?title=Gifford_Cochran_(lyricist)&action=edit&redlink=1) and Jerrold Krimsky (http://forum.xnxx.com/w/index.php?title=Jerrold_Krimsky&action=edit&redlink=1). [4] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-3) However, that production was a complete flop and the song did not catch on. In the best known English translation (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Translation), from the Marc Blitzstein (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Marc_Blitzstein) 1954 version of The Threepenny Opera, which played Off-Broadway for well over six years, [5] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-4) the words are:
Oh the shark has pretty teeth dear,And he shows them pearly whiteJust a jack-knife (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Pocket_knife) has Macheath dearAnd he keeps it out of sight.This is the version popularized by Louis Armstrong (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Louis_Armstrong) (1956) and Bobby Darin (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Bobby_Darin) (1959) (Darin's lyrics differ slightly), and most subsequent swing (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Swing_music) versions. Weill's widow, Lotte Lenya (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Lotte_Lenya), the star of both the original 1928 German (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Germany) production and the 1954 Blitzstein Broadway (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Broadway_theatre) version, was present in the studio during Armstrong's recording. He spontaneously added her name to the lyrics, which already named several of Macheath's female victims.
The rarely heard final verse—not included in the original play, but added by Brecht for the 1930 movie—expresses the theme, and compares the glittering world of the rich and powerful with the dark world of the poor:
GermanEnglish translationDenn die einen sind im DunkelnUnd die andern sind im LichtUnd man siehet die im LichteDie im Dunkeln sieht man nichtThere are some who are in darknessAnd the others are in lightAnd you see the ones in brightnessThose in darkness drop from sight

In 1976 the version translated by Ralph Manheim (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ralph_Manheim) and John Willett (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/John_Willett) opened on Broadway, later made into a movie version starring Raúl Juliá (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ra%C3%BAl_Juli%C3%A1) as "Mackie".

See the shark with teeth like razorsAll can read his open faceAnd Macheath has got a knife, butNot in such an obvious placeThis is the version later performed by Sting (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Sting_(musician)) and Nick Cave (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Nick_Cave). It is also the version performed by Lyle Lovett (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Lyle_Lovett) on the soundtrack of the film Quiz Show (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Quiz_Show_(1994_film)) (1994)—the same movie features Darin's rendition over the opening credits.
[edit (http://forum.xnxx.com/w/index.php?title=Mack_the_Knife&action=edit&section=5)] 1994 translation

A much darker translation by Robert David MacDonald (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Robert_David_MacDonald) and Jeremy Sams (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jeremy_Sams) into English was used for the 1994 Donmar Warehouse theatrical production in London (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/London). The new translation attempted to recapture the original tone of the song:
Though the shark's teeth may be lethalStill you see them white and redBut you won't see Mackie's flick knife (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Switchblade)Cause he slashed you and you're dead[edit (http://forum.xnxx.com/w/index.php?title=Mack_the_Knife&action=edit&section=6)] Crimes of Macheath

The song attributes many crimes to Macheath:

A dead man in London, on the Strand (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Strand,_London)
A rich man, Schmul Meier, disappeared for good and possibly robbed
Jenny Towler, killed with a knife in the chest
A cabbie, Alfred Gleet, missing and presumed dead
Seven children and an old man killed in an arson (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Arson) fire
Rape (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Rape) of an underage widow (minderjährige Witwe) in her bed
The arson, rape and disappearance of the cabbie were omitted from the original cast recording of the Blitzstein version, but remain intact in the libretto (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Libretto).
[edit (http://forum.xnxx.com/w/index.php?title=Mack_the_Knife&action=edit&section=7)] Popular song

"Mack the Knife" was introduced to the United States hit parade (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Hit_parade) by Louis Armstrong (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Louis_Armstrong) in 1956, but the song is most closely associated with Bobby Darin (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Bobby_Darin), who recorded his version at Fulton Studios on West 40th Street, New York City (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/New_York_City), on December 19, 1958 (with Tom Dowd (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Tom_Dowd) engineering the recording). In 1959 Darin's version reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Billboard_Hot_100) and number six on the Black Singles chart, and earned him a Grammy Award for Record of the Year (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Grammy_Award_for_Record_of_the_Year). Dick Clark (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Dick_Clark) had advised Darin not to record the song because of the perception that, having come from an opera, it wouldn't appeal to the rock & roll (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Rock_and_roll) audience. To this day, Clark recounts the story with good humor. Frank Sinatra (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Frank_Sinatra), who recorded the song with Jimmy Buffett (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jimmy_Buffett), called Darin's the "definitive" version. Darin's version hit #3 on Billboard's All Time Top 100.[6] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-5) In 2003, the Darin version was ranked #251 on Rolling Stone (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Rolling_Stone)'s "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_500_Greatest_Songs_of_All_Time)" list. On BBC Radio 4 (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/BBC_Radio_4)'s Desert Island Discs (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Desert_Island_Discs), pop mogul Simon Cowell (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Simon_Cowell) named "Mack the Knife" the best song ever written.
Brecht's original German language version was appropriated for a series of humorous and surreal blackout skits by television pioneer Ernie Kovacs (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ernie_Kovacs), showing, between skits, the vibrating soundtrack line.
Ella Fitzgerald (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ella_Fitzgerald) made a famous live recording in 1960 (released on Ella in Berlin: Mack the Knife (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ella_in_Berlin:_Mack_the_Knife)) in which, after forgetting the lyrics after the first verse, she improvised new lyrics in a performance that earned her a Grammy Award (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Grammy_Award). Robbie Williams (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Robbie_Williams) also recorded the song on his 2001 album Swing When You're Winning (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Swing_When_You%27re_Winning). Other notable versions include performances by Jimmie Dale Gilmore (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jimmie_Dale_Gilmore), Tony Bennett (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Tony_Bennett), Marianne Faithfull (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Marianne_Faithfull), Nick Cave (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Nick_Cave), Brian Setzer (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Brian_Setzer), Kevin Spacey (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Kevin_Spacey), Westlife (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Westlife), and Michael Bublé (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Michael_Bubl%C3%A9). Swiss (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Switzerland) band The Young Gods (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Young_Gods) radically reworked the song in industrial (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Industrial_music) style, while jazz (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jazz) legend Sonny Rollins (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Sonny_Rollins) recorded an instrumental version entitled simply "Moritat" in 1956. A 1959 instrumental performance by Bill Haley & His Comets (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Bill_Haley_%26_His_Comets) was the final song the group recorded for Decca Records (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Decca_Records). Tito Puente (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Tito_Puente) also recorded an instrumental version. Salsa musician Rubén Blades (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Rub%C3%A9n_Blades) recorded an homage entitled "Pedro Navaja (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Pedro_Navaja)".[7] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-6) Brazilian composer Chico Buarque (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Chico_Buarque), in his adaptation of Threepenny Opera (Ópera do Malandro), made two versions called "A Volta do Malandro" and "O Malandro (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Malandragem) No. 2", with lyrics in Portuguese (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Portuguese_language).
The song has been parodied many times. Steve Martin (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Steve_Martin) parodied "Mack the Knife" in his opening monologue to the premiere of Saturday Night Live (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Saturday_Night_Live)'s third season (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/History_of_Saturday_Night_Live_(1975%E2%80%931980)#Seasons_2.E2.80.934) in 1977. In the mid-1980s, McDonald's (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/McDonald%27s) introduced Mac Tonight (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Mac_Tonight), a character whose signature song was based on "Mack the Knife." American political parodists (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Parody) the Capitol Steps (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Capitol_Steps) used the tune for their song "Pack the Knife" on their 2002 album When Bush Comes to Shove.
The chorus to the song "Haifisch" by Rammstein (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Rammstein) is inspired by "Mack the Knife"[citation needed (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Wikipedia:Citation_needed)].

Jeepers Creepers is a popular (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Popular_music) 1938 song (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Song) and jazz standard (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jazz_standard). The music was written by Harry Warren (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Harry_Warren) and the lyrics by Johnny Mercer (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Johnny_Mercer), for the movie Going Places. It was premiered by Louis Armstrong (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Louis_Armstrong) and has since been covered by dozens of other artists. [1] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-0)
[edit (http://forum.xnxx.com/w/index.php?title=Jeepers_Creepers_(song)&action=edit&section=1)] Overview

This song was featured in the 1938 film Going Places starring Richard Powell (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Dick_Powell), Anita Louise (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Anita_Louise), Louis Armstrong (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Louis_Armstrong) and Ronald Reagan (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ronald_Reagan). Louis Armstrong plays the part of Gabriel, the trainer of a race horse named Jeepers Creepers. Jeepers Creepers is a very wild horse and can only be soothed enough to let someone ride him when Gabriel plays the song "Jeepers Creepers" on his trumpet or sings it to him. Louis Armstrong's character, Gabriel, had written the song specifically for the horse, Jeepers Creepers.
The famous lyrics of the song are:
"Jeepers Creepers, where'd ya get those peepers?
Jeepers Creepers, where'd ya get those eyes?"
[edit (http://forum.xnxx.com/w/index.php?title=Jeepers_Creepers_(song)&action=edit&section=2)] Popular culture

This song is featured in the 1939 Warner Bros. cartoon by the same name. In this cartoon, Porky Pig (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Porky_Pig) investigates a haunted house inhabited by a mischievous ghost that sings this song.
In the 1941 Cartoon Notes to You (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Notes_to_You), a cat sings this song which annoys Porky Pig.
In the 1942 film, Yankee Doodle Dandy (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Yankee_Doodle_Dandy), Jeepers Creepers is sung by a group of kids who pass by the house of George M. Cohan (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/George_M._Cohan) (played by James Cagney (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/James_Cagney)).
An excerpt of the song was played in one early scene of the 1955 film The McConnell Story (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_McConnell_Story).
In the 60s, the melody was used for a group of singer-songwriters in Catalonia, self-called "Els Setze Jutges" (The Sixteen Judges) at the beginning of their shows. They replaced the words "Jeepers Creepers" with "Setze Jutges". The song appears at the end of an album called "Homenatge musical als Setze Jutges" (Concčntric, 1965; reiussed Enderrock Discos, 2010) in an instrumental form, played by Francesc Burrull.
In an episode of "F Troop (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/F_Troop)" entitled, "How to be F Troop Without Really Trying", Lt. Mark Harrison (Les Brown, Jr. (http://forum.xnxx.com/w/index.php?title=Les_Brown,_Jr.&action=edit&redlink=1))) quotes a line from the song to Wrangler Jane (Melody Patterson (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Melody_Patterson)) even though "F Troop" is set roughly seventy years before the song is even written.
Episode of the popular Scooby Doo cartoon series entitled, "Jeepers Creepers, It's the Peeper."
In the 1975 movie The Day of the Locust (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Day_of_the_Locust_(film)), the character Faye Greener (Karen Black (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Karen_Black)) sings the song whenever she wants to disturb her father.
In 1988,"Peek-a-Boo (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Peek-a-Boo_(song))", the first single from Siouxsie and the Banshees (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Siouxsie_and_the_Banshees)'s ninth studio album Peepshow (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Peepshow_(album)), was found to be too similar to the lyrics of "Jeepers Creepers". To remedy the situation and to avoid legal action, Siouxsie and the Banshees gave co-songwriting credit on "Peek-a-Boo" to Warren and Mercer.
The 1993 film Sleepless in Seattle (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Sleepless_in_Seattle) featured an instrumental version of the song, to which Meg Ryan (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Meg_Ryan) and Bill Pullman (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Bill_Pullman)'s characters danced. Pullman's character sings the words "Dim sum (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Dim_sum)" to the tune of the chorus.
In 1996, The HBO (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/HBO) sketch comedy series Mr. Show (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Mr._Show) produced a song of the same title with Jack Black (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jack_Black) as lead, during the second episode of the second season.
In an episode of "X-Files (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/X-Files)" entitled "Triangle", the song is played at a ball on a luxury passenger liner, Queen Anne.

A recording of the song was made by The Puppini Sisters (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Puppini_Sisters) on their 2006 debut album Betcha Bottom Dollar (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Betcha_Bottom_Dollar).
In the August, 15th, 2003 edition of the webcomic (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Webcomic) Penny Arcade (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Penny_Arcade_(webcomic)), a prison inmate convicted of killing someone after cutting out his eyes and playing with them sings this song, pulling up a freashly-plucked pair of eyes at the climax. The strip is entitled "From Another Human Being." http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2003/8/15/ (http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2003/8/15/)
A few seconds of the song are heard in a 2010 episode of Family Guy (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Family_Guy) entitled "Welcome Back Carter".

Some of it clicks right away, while some of it takes a few listenings. But, once you're hooked, watch out. :)

But, jazz is really contains a wide variety of music. Some of it may appeal to you while some of it doesn't.

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Judy Garland sings from the film "Meet Me in St. Louis"

"Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" is a song (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Song) introduced by Judy Garland (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Judy_Garland) in the 1944 MGM musical Meet Me in St. Louis (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Meet_Me_in_St._Louis). Frank Sinatra (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Frank_Sinatra) later recorded a version with modified lyrics, which has become more common than the original. The song was credited to Hugh Martin (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Hugh_Martin) and Ralph Blane (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ralph_Blane), although during a December 21, 2006 NPR interview, Martin said that Blane had encouraged him to write the song but had not had anything more to do with writing it. In 2007, ASCAP (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/ASCAP) ranked "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" the third most performed Christmas song written by ASCAP members of the past five years.[2] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-1)


The song was written while Martin was vacationing in a house in Birmingham, Alabama, that his father Hugh Martin[3] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-2) designed for his mother as a honeymoon cottage. The house was located in the Southside section of the city, across the street from Hugh's mother and right beside her aunt. The song first appeared in a scene in Meet Me in St. Louis (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Meet_Me_in_St._Louis), in which a family is distraught by the father's plans to move to New York City for a job promotion, leaving behind their beloved home in St. Louis, Missouri (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/St._Louis,_Missouri) just before the long-anticipated Louisiana Purchase Exposition (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Louisiana_Purchase_Exposition) begins. In a scene set on Christmas Eve (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Christmas_Eve), Judy Garland's character, Esther, sings the song to cheer up her despondent five-year-old sister, Tootie, played by Margaret O'Brien (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Margaret_O%27Brien).[4] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-3)
The sentimental setting of the tune in the finished scene owes much to the understated orchestration by Conrad Salinger (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Conrad_Salinger) and musical direction of Georgie Stoll (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Georgie_Stoll).
However, when presented with the original draft, Garland, her co-star Tom Drake (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Tom_Drake) and director Vincente Minnelli (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Vincente_Minnelli) criticized the song as depressing:
Have yourself a merry little Christmas, it may be your last,
Next year we may all be living in the past
Have yourself a merry little Christmas, pop that champagne cork,
Next year we will all be living in New York.
No good times like the olden days, happy golden days of yore,
Faithful friends who were dear to us, will be near to us no more.
But at least we all will be together, if the Fates allow,
From now on we'll have to muddle through somehow.
So have yourself a merry little Christmas now.[5] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-ew-4)
Though he initially resisted, songwriter Hugh Martin made several changes to make the song more upbeat. For example, the lines "It may be your last / Next year we may all be living in the past" became "Let your heart be light / Next year all our troubles will be out of sight".[5] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-ew-4) Garland's version of the song, which was also released as a single by Decca Records, became popular among United States troops serving in World War II (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/World_War_II); her performance at the Hollywood Canteen brought many soldiers to tears.[6] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-stories-5)
In 1957, Frank Sinatra (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Frank_Sinatra) asked Martin to revise the line "Until then we'll have to muddle through somehow". He told Martin, "The name of my album is A Jolly Christmas (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/A_Jolly_Christmas_from_Frank_Sinatra). Do you think you could jolly up that line for me?"[5] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-ew-4) Martin's new line, "Hang a shining star upon the highest bough," has since become more widely recognized and sung than the original phrase. Martin made several other alterations, changing the song's focus to a celebration of present happiness, rather than anticipation of a better future.
Although the 1957 rewrite is the most familiar to listeners today, the Judy Garland lyrics have been recorded by a number of artists, for example Ella Fitzgerald (in Ella Wishes You a Swinging Christmas (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ella_Wishes_You_a_Swinging_Christmas)), and James Taylor (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/James_Taylor).[5] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-ew-4) Quiet Company (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Quiet_Company) recorded the song most recently for the 2007 release of Peace on Earth: A Holiday Album. The album was made available for download directly from the web. All proceeds from sales went to Toys for Tots (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Toys_for_Tots) charity. Greg London (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Greg_London)'s success as a pop music (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Pop_music) artist began during the 2008 holiday season (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Christmas_and_holiday_season), when his rendition of the song debuted as the #2 most added track on FMQB (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/FMQB)’s AC40 Chart and Radio & Records (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Radio_%26_Records) Adult Contemporary (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Adult_Contemporary) chart during the same week.[7] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-6).
In 2002, Newsong (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Newsong) lead singer Michael O'Brien noted the line "through the years, we all will be together if the Lord allows," which was part of the original song, was purged and replaced with "if the fates allow" to remove religious reference when the song was released. He noted while a pastor in a California church in 1990, he had met Martin, who played piano at the church where O'Brien was serving for an evening, and the pastor was told, "That's the original way I wrote it, so I want you to sing it this way."

In addition to NewSong, Twila Paris (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Twila_Paris), Kathy Troccoli (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Kathy_Troccoli), Phil Wickham (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Phil_Wickham), and BarlowGirl (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/BarlowGirl) have recorded the song with original "Lord" lyrics.

Once in Royal David's City

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation (http://forum.xnxx.com/#mw-head), search (http://forum.xnxx.com/#p-search)
Once In Royal David's City is a Christmas carol (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Christmas_carol) originally written as poem (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Poem) by Cecil Frances Alexander (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Cecil_Frances_Alexander). The carol was first published in 1848 in Miss Cecil Humphreys' hymnbook (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Hymn) Hymns for little Children. A year later, the English organist Henry John Gauntlett (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Henry_John_Gauntlett) discovered the poem and set it to music.[1] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-carol-0) Cecil Alexander, meanwhile, married the Anglican (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Anglican) clergyman (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Clergy) William Alexander (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/William_Alexander_(archbishop)) in 1848 and upon her husband's consecration became a bishop's (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Bishop) wife in 1867.[1] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-carol-0) She is also remembered for her hymn All Things Bright and Beautiful (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/All_Things_Bright_and_Beautiful).
"Royal David's City" refers to Bethlehem (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Bethlehem), which the New Testament (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/New_Testament) records as the historical birthplace of King David (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/King_David), an ancestor of Jesus Christ (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jesus_Christ). Theologically, Alexander's poem expands a little upon the childhood of Jesus Christ (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jesus_Christ), which is not told in any detail in any of the Four Gospels (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Four_Gospels). Being a children's poem, it largely dwells upon the more palatable aspects of the Nativity story, with the last verses being a prime example of Victorian morality (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Victorian_morality).
Since 1919, the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Nine_Lessons_and_Carols) at the King's College Chapel (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/King%27s_College_Chapel,_Cambridge) Cambridge (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/King%27s_College,_Cambridge) has begun its Christmas Eve (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Christmas_Eve) service, with Dr Arthur Henry Mann (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Arthur_Henry_Mann)'s arrangement of "Once in Royal David's City" as the Processional hymn (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Processional_hymn).[1] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-carol-0) Mann was organist at King's between 1876–1929.[2] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-1) In his arrangement, the first verse is sung by a boy chorister of the Choir of King's Chapel (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Choir_of_King%27s_College,_Cambridge) as a solo (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Solo_(music)). The second verse is sung by the choir, and the congregation (http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/congregation) joins in the third verse. Excluding the first verse, the hymn is accompanied by the organ (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Organ_(music)). This carol was the first recording that the King's College Choir (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Choir_of_King%27s_College,_Cambridge) under Boris Ord (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Boris_Ord) made for EMI (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/EMI) in 1948.[3] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-2) Among others who have recorded it are Mary Chapin Carpenter (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Mary_Chapin_Carpenter), The Chieftains (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Chieftains), Daniel O'Donnell (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Daniel_O%27Donnell), The Mormon Tabernacle Choir (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Mormon_Tabernacle_Choir), Petula Clark (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Petula_Clark), Jethro Tull (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jethro_Tull_(band)) and Sufjan Stevens (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Sufjan_Stevens).

Once in royal David's city (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Bethlehem)Stood a lowly cattle shed,Where a mother laid her babyIn a manger for His bed:Mary (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Mary,_mother_of_Jesus) was that mother mild,Jesus Christ (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jesus_Christ) her little child.He came down to earth from heaven (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Heaven),Who is God (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/God) and Lord of all,And His shelter was a stable,And His cradle was a stall;With the poor, and mean, and lowly,Lived on earth our Saviour (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Saviour) Holy.And through all His wondrous childhoodHe would honour and obey,Love and watch the lowly Maiden,In whose gentle arms He lay:Christian children all must beMild, obedient, good as He.For He is our childhood's pattern; (1)Day by day, like us He grew;He was little, weak and helpless,Tears and smiles like us He knew;And He feeleth for our sadness,And He shareth in our gladness.And our eyes at last shall see Him,Through His own redeeming (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Redeemer_(Christianity)) love;For that Child so dear and gentleIs our Lord in heaven above,And He leads His children onTo the place where He is gone.Not in that poor lowly stable,With the oxen standing by,We shall see Him; but in heaven,Set at God's right hand on high;Where like stars His children crowned (2)All in white shall wait around.(1) Or: "Jesus is our childhood's pattern"
(2) Or: "When like stars His children crown'd"

"Good King Wenceslas" is a popular Christmas carol (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Christmas_carol) about a king who goes out to give alms (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Alms) to a poor peasant (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Peasant) on the Feast of Stephen (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/St._Stephen%27s_Day) (the second day of Christmas (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Christmas), December 26). During the journey, his page (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Page_(servant)) is about to give up the struggle against the cold weather, but is enabled to continue by the heat miraculously (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Miracle) emanating from the king's footprints in the snow. The legend is based on the life of the historical Saint (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Saint) Wenceslaus I, Duke of Bohemia (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Wenceslaus_I,_Duke_of_Bohemia) (907–935), known in the Czech language (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Czech_language) as Svatý Václav.
The tune is based on a 13th century spring carol (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Carol_(music)) "Tempus adest floridum" ("It is time for flowering") first published in the 1582 Finnish (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Finland) song collection Piae Cantiones (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Piae_Cantiones). The "Wenceslas" lyrics were written much later in 1853 by the English hymnwriter John Mason Neale (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/John_Mason_Neale) (1818–1866) and substituted for the original Latin (to which they bear no relation) in collaboration with his music editor Thomas Helmore (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Thomas_Helmore).

Source legend

Wenceslas was considered a martyr (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Martyr) and a saint (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Saint) immediately after his death, when a cult of Wenceslas grew up in Bohemia (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Bohemia) and in England (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/England).[1] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-0) Within a few decades of Wenceslas's death four biographies of him were in circulation.[2] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-1)[3] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-2) These hagiographies (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Hagiography) had a powerful influence on the High Middle Ages (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/High_Middle_Ages) conceptualization of the rex justus, or "righteous king"—that is, a monarch (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Monarch) whose power stems mainly from his great piety, as well as from his princely vigor.[4] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-3)
Referring approvingly to these hagiographies, the chronicler Cosmas of Prague (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Cosmas_of_Prague), writing in about the year 1119, states:[5] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-4)

But his deeds I think you know better than I could tell you; for, as is read in his Passion, no one doubts that, rising every night from his noble bed, with bare feet and only one chamberlain, he went around to God’s churches and gave alms generously to widows, orphans, those in prison and afflicted by every difficulty, so much so that he was considered, not a prince, but the father of all the wretched.
Several centuries later the legend was claimed as fact by Pope Pius II (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Pope_Pius_II),[6] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-5) who himself also walked ten miles barefoot in the ice and snow as an act of pious thanksgiving.[7] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-6)
Although Wenceslas was, during his lifetime, only a duke, Holy Roman Emperor Otto I (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Otto_I,_Holy_Roman_Emperor) posthumously "conferred on [Wenceslas] the regal dignity and title" and that is why, in the legend and song, he is referred to as a "king".[8] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-7) The usual English spelling of Duke Wenceslas's name, Wenceslaus, is occasionally encountered in later textual variants of the carol, although it was not used by Neale in his version.[9] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-8) Wenceslas is not to be confused with King Wenceslaus I of Bohemia (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Wenceslaus_I_of_Bohemia), who lived over three centuries later.

Tempus adest floridum

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/a/af/Tempus_adest_floridum.jpg/200px-Tempus_adest_floridum.jpg (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/File:Tempus_adest_floridum.jpg) http://bits.wikimedia.org/skins-1.5/common/images/magnify-clip.png (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/File:Tempus_adest_floridum.jpg)
"Tempus adest floridum" in the 1582 Finnish song collection Piae Cantiones (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Piae_Cantiones). The plainsong formed the basis for the carol.

The tune is that of "Tempus adest floridum" ("It is time for flowering"), a 13th-century spring carol (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Carol_(music)) first published in the Finnish (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Finland) song book Piae Cantiones (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Piae_Cantiones) in 1582. Piae Cantiones is a collection of seventy-four songs compiled by Jaakko Suomalainen, the Protestant headmaster of Turku Cathedral School (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Turku_Cathedral_School), and published by Theodoric Petri, a young Catholic printer. The book is a unique document of European songs intended not only for use in church, but also schools, thus making the collection a unique record of secular (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Secular) (as opposed to sacred), children's songs of the late medieval period.[10] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-9)
A text beginning substantially the same as the 1582 "Piae" version is also found in the German manuscript collection Carmina Burana (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Carmina_Burana) as CB 142, where it is substantially more carnal; CB 142 has clerics and virgins playing the game of Venus in the meadows, while in the Piae version they are praising the Lord from the bottom of their hearts.[11] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-10)[12] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-11)
The text of Neale's carol bear no relationship to the words of "Tempus Adest Floridum".[13] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-12) In or around 1853, G. J. R. Gordon, her majesty's envoy and minister in Stockholm (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Stockholm), gave a rare copy of the 1582 edition of Piae Cantiones to English (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/England) hymnwriter (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Hymnwriter) John Mason Neale (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/John_Mason_Neale), Warden of Sackville College (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Sackville_College), East Grinstead (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/East_Grinstead), Sussex (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Sussex) and to the Reverend Thomas Helmore (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Thomas_Helmore) (Vice-Principal of St. Mark's College, Chelsea (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Chelsea,_London)). The book was entirely unknown in England (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/England) at that time. Neale translated some of the carols and hymns (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Hymn), and in 1853, he and Helmore published twelve carols in Carols for Christmas-tide (with music from Piae Cantiones). In 1854, they published a dozen more in Carols for Easter-tide and it was in these collections that Neale's original hymn was first published.
Neale's carol

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/4/4c/Wikisource-logo.svg/38px-Wikisource-logo.svg.pngWikisource (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Wikisource) has original text related to this article: Good King Wenceslas (http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Special:Search/Good_King_Wenceslas)

John Mason Neale published the carol "Good King Wenceslas" in 1853, although he may have written his carol some time earlier, since he carried on the legend of St. Wenceslas (the basis of this story) in his Deeds of Faith (http://forum.xnxx.com/w/index.php?title=Deeds_of_Faith&action=edit&redlink=1) (1849). Neale was known for his devotion to High Church (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/High_Church) traditions. According to older Czech sources, Neale's lyrics are a translation of a poem by Czech poet Václav Alois Svoboda, written in Czech (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Czech_language), German (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/German_language) and Latin (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Latin_language). [14] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-13)
The hymn consists of five quatrains (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Quatrains) in the meter (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Meter_(poetry)) trochaic (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Trochee) heptameter (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Heptameter). Each quatrain has the scheme (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Rhyme_scheme) ABABCDCD with feminine rhyme (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Feminine_rhyme) and internal rhyme (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Internal_rhyme). The unstressed syllable (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Syllable) of the fourth foot (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Foot_(prosody)) is abated in each line in favor of a caesura (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Caesura), forming the line into two hemistichs (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Hemistich). In the accompanying common time (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Time_signature) musical score (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Musical_score), the caesura is attained by rendering the fourth foot as a half note (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Half_note), while the last foot of the line effectively becomes a spondee (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Spondee) by being realized as two half notes. Each line is thus sung in four measures (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Bar_(music)). Neale's words are now in the public domain (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Public_domain).[15] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-14)* MIDI recording of the melody "Tempus Adest Floridum". (http://www.hymntime.com/tch/mid/t/e/m/tempus_adest_floridum.mid)
Academics tend to be critical of Neale's textual substitution. H. J. L. J. Massé wrote in 1921:

Why, for instance, do we tolerate such impositions as "Good King Wenceslas?" The original was and is an Easter Hymn...it is marked in carol books as "traditional", a delightful word which often conceals ignorance. There is nothing traditional in it as a carol.[16] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-15)
A similar sentiment is expressed by the editors (Percy Dearmer (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Percy_Dearmer), Martin Shaw (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Martin_Shaw_(composer)) and Ralph Vaughan Williams (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ralph_Vaughan_Williams)) in the 1928 Oxford Book of Carols (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Oxford_Book_of_Carols), which is even more critical of Neale's carol.[17] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-16)

This rather confused narrative owes its popularity to the delightful tune, which is that of a Spring carol...Unfortunately Neale in 1853 substituted for the Spring carol this Good King Wenceslas, one of his less happy pieces, which E. Duncan goes so far as to call "doggerel", and Bullen condemns as "poor and commonplace to the last degree". The time has not yet come for a comprehensive book to discard it; but we reprint the tune in its proper setting...not without hope that, with the present wealth of carols for Christmas, Good King Wenceslas may gradually pass into disuse, and the tune be restored to spring-time.[18] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-17)
Elizabeth Poston (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Elizabeth_Poston), in the Penguin Book of Christmas Carols, refered to it as the "product of an unnatural marriage between Victorian whimsy and the thirteenth-century dance carol". She goes on to detail how Neale's "ponderous moral doggerel" does not fit the light-hearted dance measure of the original tune, and that if performed in the correct manner "sounds ridiculous to pseudo-religious words".[19] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-18)

Santa Baby

Eartha Kitt
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7MBvCyF7aMU (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7MBvCyF7aMU)

"Santa Baby" is a 1953 Christmas song (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Christmas_song) written by Joan Javits (the niece of Senator Jacob K. Javits (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jacob_Javits)), Philip Springer, and Fred Ebb (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Fred_Ebb).[1] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-0) Although Tony Springer[2] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-1) is listed as co-writer, he was a legal fiction created for purposes of membership in the performing rights organization BMI (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Broadcast_Music_Incorporated).
The song is a tongue-in-cheek (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Tongue-in-cheek) look at a Christmas list sung by a woman who wants the most extravagant gifts like sable (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Sable), yachts (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Yacht), and decorations from Tiffany's (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Tiffany_%26_Co.).
Original recording

"Santa Baby" was originally recorded by Eartha Kitt (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Eartha_Kitt) with Henri René (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Henri_Ren%C3%A9) and his orchestra in New York city (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/New_York_city) on October 6, 1953. It was released by RCA Victor Records (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/RCA_Victor_Records) as catalog number 20-5502 (in USA)[3] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-2) and by EMI (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/EMI) on the His Master's Voice as catalog number B 10728. The song was a huge hit for Kitt, and she later said that it was one of her favorite songs to record. A sequel, "This Year's Santa Baby", was recorded by Kitt in 1954, to no commercial success; Kitt also reprised the original song in a 1963 re-recording for Kapp Records (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Kapp_Records), with a more uptempo arrangement. (Madonna (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Madonna_(entertainer))'s popular rendition for the 1987 charity album A Very Special Christmas (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/A_Very_Special_Christmas_(album)) is based on this latter version.) The song was featured in the 1989 film Driving Miss Daisy (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Driving_Miss_Daisy).

Let it Snow

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KyZRostJ1-4 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KyZRostJ1-4)
"Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!", also known as "Let It Snow", is a song written by lyricist Sammy Cahn (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Sammy_Cahn) and composer Jule Styne (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jule_Styne) in 1945. It was written in July 1945 in Hollywood, California during one of the hottest days on record.
First recorded by Vaughn Monroe (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Vaughn_Monroe), it became a popular hit, reaching number one on the Billboard (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Billboard_(magazine)) music chart the following year. One of the best-selling songs of all time, "Let It Snow!" has been covered countless times. Due to its seasonal lyrics, it is commonly regarded as a Christmas song (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Christmas_song). Yet despite its cheery, holiday feel, it is a love song that never mentions Christmas (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Christmas).
In 1963, Smokey Robinson (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Smokey_Robinson) & The Miracles (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Miracles) recorded the song for Christmas with The Miracles (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Christmas_with_The_Miracles) (1963)
In 1964, Doris Day (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Doris_Day) recorded it for The Doris Day Christmas Album (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Doris_Day_Christmas_Album)
Andy Williams (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Andy_Williams) cut the song for his 1965 album Merry Christmas (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Merry_Christmas_(Andy_Williams_album)).
In 1966, Dean Martin (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Dean_Martin) recorded the song for "The Dean Martin Christmas Album".
This song was meant to be a love song or a song with a playful romance.

Naima is a ballad (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ballad) composed by John Coltrane (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/John_Coltrane) in 1959, and named after his then-wife, Juanita Naima Grubbs (http://forum.xnxx.com/w/index.php?title=Juanita_Naima_Grubbs&action=edit&redlink=1). It first appeared on the album Giant Steps (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Giant_Steps), and is notable for its use of a variety of rich chords over a bass pedal (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Pedal_point). It is mainly made up of a slow, restrained melody, though there is also a brief piano solo.
One of Coltrane (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Coltrane)'s most famous compositions[citation needed (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Wikipedia:Citation_needed)], he recorded it numerous times. "Naima" also appears on Live! at the Village Vanguard (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Live!_at_the_Village_Vanguard), The Complete Copenhagen Concert (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Complete_Copenhagen_Concert), Afro-Blue Impressions (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Afro-Blue_Impressions), Live at the Village Vanguard Again! (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Live_at_the_Village_Vanguard_Again!), among other albums.

I think I may have listed those earlier as I have Miles, Sun Ra, and Chick Corea RTF links posted. Feel free to add your own links. Even if we have multiple posts for the same song, it doesn''t matter. They are good tunes and it doesn't hurt to have several versions. Links sometimes stop working as well.

"Harlem Nocturne" is a jazz standard (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jazz_standard) written by Earle Hagen (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Earle_Hagen) and Dick Rogers in 1939.[1] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-CNN-0) The song was adopted by bandleader Randy Brooks (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Randy_Brooks_(big_band_leader)) the next year as his theme song.[2] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-Marsh-1)
"Harlem Nocturne" has been frequently recorded.

They Can't Take That Away From Me

Louis Armstrong with Ella Fitzgerald
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExmoiGZuiFQ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExmoiGZuiFQ)

"They Can't Take That Away from Me" is a 1937 song (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Song) (see 1937 in music (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/1937_in_music)) written by George Gershwin (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/George_Gershwin) and Ira Gershwin (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ira_Gershwin) and introduced by Fred Astaire (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Fred_Astaire) in the 1937 film Shall We Dance (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Shall_We_Dance_(1937_film)).
The song is performed by Astaire on the foggy deck of the ferry from New Jersey to Manhattan. It is sung to Ginger Rogers (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ginger_Rogers), who remains silent listening throughout. No dance sequence follows, which was unusual for the Astaire-Rogers numbers. Astaire and Rogers did dance to it later in their last movie The Barkleys of Broadway (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Barkleys_of_Broadway) (1949) in which they played a married couple with marital issues. The song, in the context of Shall We Dance, notes some of the things that Peter (Astaire) will miss about Linda (Rogers). The lyrics include "the way you wear your hat, the way you sip your tea", and "the way you hold your knife, the way we danced till three." Each verse is followed by the line "no, no, they can't take that away from me." The basic meaning of the song is that even if the lovers part, though physically separated the memories cannot be forced from them. Thus it is a song of mixed joy and sadness.
The verse references the song "The Song is Ended (but the Melody Lingers On) (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Song_is_Ended_(but_the_Melody_Lingers_On))" by Irving Berlin (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Irving_Berlin):
Our romance won't end on a sorrowful note, though by tomorrow you're gone. The song is ended, but as the songwriter wrote, 'the melody lingers on.' They may take you from me, I'll miss your fond caress, but though they take you from me I'll still possess....George Gershwin died two months after the film's release, and he was posthumously nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Academy_Award_for_Best_Original_Song) at the 1937 Oscars.
The song is featured in Kenneth Branagh's musical version of Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost (2000).

"Just Friends" is a popular song that has become a jazz standard (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jazz_standard). The song was written in 1931 by John Klenner (http://forum.xnxx.com/w/index.php?title=John_Klenner&action=edit&redlink=1) with lyrics by Sam M. Lewis (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Sam_M._Lewis). Although introduced by Red McKenzie (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Red_McKenzie) and His Orchestra in October 1931, it first became a hit when singer Russ Columbo (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Russ_Columbo) performed it with Leonard Joy (http://forum.xnxx.com/w/index.php?title=Leonard_Joy&action=edit&redlink=1)’s Orchestra in 1932. It charted again the same year in a version by Ben Selvin (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ben_Selvin) and His Orchestra and has been recorded often since.
In 1987, guitarist Larry Coryell (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Larry_Coryell) covered the song from his album "Toku Do."[1] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-0)

Clark Terry


Clark Terry sings his version of scat.


Scat singing is a style of jazz singing without real words, where the human voice is made to sound like a musical instrument.

Nonsense syllables replace intelligible words, and singers use their voices as instruments.

This "voice-as-instrument" jazz technique was reputedly invented by Louis Armstrong during the recording of his piece "Heebie Jeebies" in 1925.

Armstrong popularised scatting and had illustrious followers in the 1930s - Cab Calloway, Leo Watson and Ella Fitzgerald.

This singing style evolved as the general jazz scene developed, and singers suited their styles to the music of their times.

In the mid-1940s bebop era, Jon Hendricks and Sarah Vaughan adopted bebop-scat in their presentations.

In the 1940s and 1950s, Ella Fitzgerald scat-improvised to match the players of the saxophone, trumpet and other instruments.

In the 1960s, the Swingle Singers, a Parisian ensemble of eight, elevated scatting to the classical concert stage with popular scat arrangements of familiar classical themes.

And in the 1980s, Betty Carter and Kurt Elling raised the sophistication of scatting to new heights while adding all sorts of unusual vocal sounds.

"April in Paris" is a song composed by Vernon Duke (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Vernon_Duke) with lyrics by E. Y. Harburg (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/E._Y._Harburg) in 1932 for the Broadway musical, Walk A Little Faster (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Walk_A_Little_Faster). The original 1933 hit was performed by Freddy Martin (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Freddy_Martin), and the 1952 remake (inspired by the movie of the same name) was by the Sauter-Finegan Orchestra (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Sauter-Finegan_Orchestra), whose version made the Cashbox Top 50.
Composer Alec Wilder (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Alec_Wilder) writes, "There are no two ways about it: this is a perfect theater song. If that sounds too reverent, then I'll reduce the praise to 'perfectly wonderful,' or else say that if it's not perfect, show me why it isn't."[2] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-1)
It has been performed by many artists, including Louis Armstrong (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Louis_Armstrong), Count Basie (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Count_Basie), Bill Evans (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Bill_Evans), Charlie Parker (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Charlie_Parker), Coleman Hawkins (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Coleman_Hawkins), Frank Sinatra (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Frank_Sinatra), Mary Kaye Trio (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Mary_Kaye), Billie Holiday (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Billie_Holiday), Thelonious Monk (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Thelonious_Monk), Ella Fitzgerald (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ella_Fitzgerald), Benny Goodman (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Benny_Goodman), Dinah Shore (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Dinah_Shore), Glenn Miller (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Glenn_Miller), Doris Day (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Doris_Day), Alex Chilton (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Alex_Chilton), Tommy Dorsey (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Tommy_Dorsey), Blossom Dearie (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Blossom_Dearie), Wynton Marsalis (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Wynton_Marsalis), Sal Viviano (http://forum.xnxx.com/w/index.php?title=Sal_Viviano&action=edit&redlink=1), and Dawn Upshaw (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Dawn_Upshaw). Basie's 1955 recording is the most famous, and that particular performance was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Grammy_Hall_of_Fame).[3] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-2) On this recording, trumpeter Thad Jones (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Thad_Jones) played his famous "Pop Goes the Weasel (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Pop_Goes_the_Weasel)" solo, and Basie directs the band to play the shout chorus "one more time," then "one more once."
The song is also featured in the film Blazing Saddles.

Well, Mr. Marsalis is probably on of the best current jazz trumpet players, but he seems to have a big opinion of himself that allows him to publically deride other people that he deems as not having talent. Wynton has said that most other musicians have committed the gross sin of entertaining, rather than enlightening, their audience. Not everyone is in agreement with him.

I am NOT a Wynton Marsalis fan at all and it has nothing to do with his overblown ego. He IS tremendously knowledgeable about the history of jazz and the technical aspects of music and its construction, AND, technically-speaking, he is an extremely talented instrumentalist, but to me, his music has no soul.

I agree with you. I am not a big fan, but I still appreciate listening to him . I think he could have played with more soul if he wanted to. Instead, he concentrated on the more technical and traditional aspects of music.

"My Funny Valentine" is a show tune (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Show_tune) from the 1937 Richard Rodgers (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Richard_Rodgers) and Lorenz Hart (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Lorenz_Hart) musical Babes in Arms (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Babes_in_Arms). After being recorded by Chet Baker (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Chet_Baker), Frank Sinatra (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Frank_Sinatra) and Miles Davis (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Miles_Davis), the song became a popular jazz standard (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jazz_standard), appearing on over 1300 albums performed by over 600 artists.


Babes in Arms (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Babes_in_Arms) opened at the Shubert Theatre (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Shubert_Theatre_(Broadway)) on Broadway (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Broadway_theatre), in New York City (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/New_York_City) on April 14, 1937 and ran for 289 performances.[1] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-0) In the original play, a character named Billie Smith (played by Mitzi Green (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Mitzi_Green)) sings the song to Valentine "Val" LaMar (played by Ray Heatherton (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ray_Heatherton)).[2] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-1) In the song, Billie pokes fun at some of Valentine's characteristics, but ultimately affirms that he makes her smile and that she doesn't want him to change. The song first hit the charts in 1945, performed by Hal McIntyre (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Hal_McIntyre) with vocals by Ruth Gaylor.[3] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-2) It only appeared for one week and hit #16.[4] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-3)

lyrics by Johnny Mercer

Ella Fitzgerald vocal
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-f53xo_NNF8 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-f53xo_NNF8)

"Midnight Sun" (1954) was originally an instrumental composed by Lionel Hampton (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Lionel_Hampton) and Sonny Burke (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Sonny_Burke) in 1947 and is now considered a jazz standard (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jazz_standard). Subsequently, Johnny Mercer (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Johnny_Mercer) wrote the words to the song. One famous recording of the song with the Mercer lyrics is by Ella Fitzgerald (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ella_Fitzgerald) on her album Like Someone in Love (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Like_Someone_in_Love_(Ella_Fitzgerald_album)) (1957).

Story behind the lyrics

According to Phillip Furia,[1] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-0) Johnny Mercer was driving along the freeway from Palm Springs (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Palm_Springs,_California) to Hollywood (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Hollywood), California (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/California), when he heard the instrumental on his car radio and started to set words to the song as he drove.

"Straight, No Chaser" is a wonderful songjazz standard (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jazz_standard) composed by Thelonious Monk (http://Thelonious Monk). It was first recorded on Monk's Blue Note Sessions (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Thelonious_Monk_Blue_Note_Sessions) in 1951. It has been recorded numerous times by Monk and others and is one of Monk's most covered songs.[1] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-jazzstandards.com-0)

Music educator Mark C. Gridley wrote about Monk's composition style: "Monk employed simple compositional devices with very original results. His ‘Straight, No Chaser’ involves basically only one idea played again and again, each time in a different part of the measure and with a different ending."[2] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-1)
Carmen McRae (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Carmen_McRae) recorded a vocal version of the tune in 1988, with words by Sally Swisher. The McRae version was titled "Get It Straight".[1] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-jazzstandards.com-0)

"Here's That Rainy Day" is a popular (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Popular_music) song (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Song) with music by Jimmy Van Heusen (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jimmy_Van_Heusen) and lyrics by Johnny Burke (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Johnny_Burke_(lyricist)), published in 1953. It was introduced by Dolores Gray (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Dolores_Gray) in the Broadway musical (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Broadway_musical) Carnival in Flanders (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Carnival_in_Flanders_(musical)). [1] (http://www.songsbysinatra.com/songs/a2z/a2z_main.html)
The song has been recorded by many jazz and pop singers, including Tony Bennett, Dee Dee Bridgewater, The Stan Kenton Orchestra, June Christy, Rosemary Clooney (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Rosemary_Clooney), Perry Como, Vic Damone, Billy Eckstine, Ella Fitzgerald, Lou Rawls, Astrud Gilberto (with Stan Getz), Lena Horne (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Lena_Horne), Phyllis Hyman (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Phyllis_Hyman), Jack Jones, Steve Lawrence, Peggy Lee (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Peggy_Lee), Kenny Rankin, Frank Sinatra (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Frank_Sinatra), Mel Torme, Sarah Vaughan and Andy Williams (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Andy_Williams). It is also a favorite of jazz instrumentalists, with renditions by Joe Pass (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Joe_Pass), Gene Ammons, Chet Baker (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Chet_Baker), Ray Brown, Dave Brubeck (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Dave_Brubeck), Paul Desmond, Bill Evans (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Bill_Evans), Art Farmer, Freddie Hubbard, Wes Montgomery (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Wes_Montgomery), Art Pepper (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Art_Pepper), Oscar Peterson (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Oscar_Peterson), Toots Thielemans (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Toots_Thielemans), Alvin "Red" Tyler, L.A. Jazz Quintet and McCoy Tyner, among many others.
Frank Sinatra seems to have especially liked "Here's That Rainy Day." He recorded it on March 25, 1959 for the Capitol album "No One Cares (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/No_One_Cares)," arranged and conducted by Gordon Jenkins. [2] (http://www.songsbysinatra.com/songs/a2z/a2z_main.html) He also performed it on two of his television shows—first on a Timex (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Timex) sponsored show entitled "The Frank Sinatra Timex Show: An Afternoon with Frank Sinatra," broadcast on December 13, 1959. In this performance, he sings it in front of a jazz sextet on a night club set. [1] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-0)
The second time he performed it on TV was November 18, 1973. Since 1965 he had been doing one television special a year—this one followed a two year break for his retirement.[2] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-1) The show, "Ol' Blue Eyes Is Back," features "Here's That Rainy Day" in a dramatic, moody set–piece medley with "Last Night When We Were Young" and "Violets for Your Furs." Here the set is an empty, almost abstract bar with a slowly turning fan overhead. Sinatra makes the three songs into a dramatic statement.(See the show on [3] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-2))
Sinatra also performed the song during three concerts in 1974, at Caesar's Palace, in Philadelphia and Sarasota, New York. [4] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-3)
Former late-night talk show host Johnny Carson (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Johnny_Carson) said that "Here's That Rainy Day" was his favorite ballad. Carson and Bette Midler (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Bette_Midler) famously sang the song on the next-to-last show of The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Tonight_Show_with_Johnny_Carson) on May 21, 1992. After Carson's death in 2005, Doc Severinsen (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Doc_Severinsen), Tommy Newsom (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Tommy_Newsom), and Ed Shaughnessy (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ed_Shaughnessy) performed the song along with Paul Shaffer (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Paul_Shaffer) and the CBS Orchestra (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/CBS_Orchestra) on Late Show with David Letterman (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Late_Show_with_David_Letterman)[5] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-4).

"'Round Midnight" is a 1944 jazz standard (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jazz_standard) by pianist Thelonious Monk (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thelonious_Monk). Jazz artists Cootie Williams (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cootie_Williams), Dizzy Gillespie (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dizzy_Gillespie), Art Pepper (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Art_Pepper), and Miles Davis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miles_Davis) have further embellished the song, with songwriter Bernie Hanighen (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernie_Hanighen) adding lyrics. Both Williams and Hanighen have received co-credits for their contributions.

It is thought that Monk originally composed the song sometime in 1940 or 1941. However, Harry Colomby (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Harry_Colomby&action=edit&redlink=1) claims that Monk may have written an early version around 1936 (at the age of 19) with the title "Grand Finale". "'Round Midnight" is the most-recorded jazz standard composed by a jazz musician.[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/'Round_Midnight_(song)#cite_note-0) In allmusic.com (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allmusic) it appears in over 1000 albums. The song is also called "'Round About Midnight", as Miles Davis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miles_Davis) used this title for his Columbia Records (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Columbia_Records) album Round About Midnight (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Round_About_Midnight) (1957) that included a cover of the song based on Dizzy Gillespie's interpretation.

Well You Needn't

"Well, You Needn't" is a jazz standard (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jazz_standard) composed by Thelonious Monk (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Thelonious_Monk) in 1944. According to Robin D.G. Kelley in his seminal biography "Thelonious Monk: the Life and Times of an American Original" the title was inspired by a protegé of Monk's, the jazz singer Charlie Beamon; Monk wrote a song and told Beamon he was going to name it after him, to which Beamon replied "Well, you needn't".
Like another Monk standard, "Epistrophy (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Epistrophy)", it is notable for a chord sequence in which the root note moves by semitones (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Semitones). There is some disagreement about the chord progression in the bridge. On many club dates and jam sessions, musicians play the tune as it was transcribed in the original Real Book (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Real_Book):
G7 | G7 | Ab7 | Ab7 | A7 Bb7 | B7 Bb7 | A7 Ab7 | G7 C7 |The wide proliferation of the Real Book (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Real_Book) makes this progression the de facto standard for the bridge. The "New Real Book" shows alternate bridge chords:
Db9 | Db9 | D9 | D9 | Eb9 E9 | Eb9 D9 | Db9 C9 | B9 C7 |These could be considered tritone substitution (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Tritone_substitution) chords for the most part.
Aside from Monk's recordings, versions have been recorded by Miles Davis (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Miles_Davis) (on his album Steamin' (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Steamin%27)), Herbie Hancock (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Herbie_Hancock), and many others. Mike Ferro (http://forum.xnxx.com/w/index.php?title=Mike_Ferro&action=edit&redlink=1) wrote lyrics for the song in the 1970s.

"Summertime" is an aria (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Aria) composed by George Gershwin (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/George_Gershwin) for the 1935 opera (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Opera) Porgy and Bess (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Porgy_and_Bess). The lyrics are by DuBose Heyward (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/DuBose_Heyward), the author of the novel Porgy (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Porgy) on which the opera was based, although the song is also co-credited to Ira Gershwin (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ira_Gershwin) by ASCAP (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/ASCAP).[1] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-0)
The song soon became a popular and much recorded jazz standard (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jazz_standard), described as "without doubt... one of the finest songs the composer ever wrote....Gershwin's highly evocative writing brilliantly mixes elements of jazz and the song styles of African-Americans in the southeast United States from the early twentieth century."[2] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-cummings-1) Heyward's lyrics for "Summertime" and "My Man's Gone Now (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/My_Man%27s_Gone_Now)" have been called "the best lyrics in the musical theater" by composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Stephen_Sondheim).[3] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-2)

Porgy and Bess

Gershwin began composing the song in December 1933, attempting to create his own spiritual (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Spiritual_(music)) in the style of the African American (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/African_American) folk music of the period (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/History_of_the_United_States_(1865-1918)).[4] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-3)[5] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-4) The Ukrainian-Canadian composer and singer Alexis Kochan (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Alexis_Kochan) has suggested that he based the tune on a Ukrainian lullaby (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Lullaby), Oi Khodyt Son Kolo Vikon (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Oi_Khodyt_Son_Kolo_Vikon) (A Dream Passes By The Windows), which he heard in a New York City performance by Oleksander Koshetz (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Oleksander_Koshetz)’s Ukrainian National Chorus (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ukrainian_Republic_Capella) in 1929.[6] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-5) Gershwin had completed setting DuBose Heyward's poem to music by February 1934, and spent the next 20 months complete and orchestrating the score of the opera.[7] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-jazzstandards-6)
The song was for the first time recorded by Abbie Mitchell (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Abbie_Mitchell) on 19 July 1935, with George Gershwin playing the piano and conducting the orchestra (on: George Gershwin Conducts Excerpts form Porgy & Bess, Mark 56 667). It is sung multiple times throughout Porgy and Bess, first by Clara in Act I as a lullaby (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Lullaby) and soon after as counterpoint to the craps (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Craps)game (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Game) scene, in Act II in a reprise by Clara, and in Act III by Bess, singing to Clara's baby.
[edit (http://forum.xnxx.com/w/index.php?title=Summertime_(song)&action=edit&section=2)] Musical analysis

Musicologist K. J. McElrath wrote of the song:[7] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-jazzstandards-6)

"Gershwin was remarkably successful in his intent to have this sound like a folk song. This is reinforced by his extensive use of the pentatonic scale (C-D-E-G-A) in the context of the A minor tonality and a slow-moving harmonic progression that suggests a “blues (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Blues).” Because of these factors, this tune has been a favorite of jazz performers for decades and can be done in a variety of tempos and styles."
Recorded versions

There are some 24,400 different recorded versions of the song.[8] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-7) In September 1936, a recording by Billie Holiday (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Billie_Holiday) was the first to hit the national pop charts, reaching # 12.[7] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-jazzstandards-6) Other notable recordings include those by Louis Armstrong (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Louis_Armstrong) and Ella Fitzgerald (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ella_Fitzgerald) in 1957, Gene Vincent (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Gene_Vincent) in 1958, Sam Cooke (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Sam_Cooke) and The Marcels (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Marcels) in 1961, and Janis Joplin (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Janis_Joplin) with Big Brother and the Holding Company (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Big_Brother_and_the_Holding_Company) on the 1968 album Cheap Thrills (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Cheap_Thrills_(Big_Brother_and_the_Holding_Company_album)). The most commercially successful version was by Billy Stewart (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Billy_Stewart), who reached # 10 on the Billboard (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Billboard_(magazine)) Hot 100 (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Hot_100) in 1966. In 1998, Morcheeba (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Morcheeba) and Hubert Laws (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Hubert_Laws) recorded the song for the Red Hot Organization (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Red_Hot_Organization)'s compilation album Red Hot + Rhapsody (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Red_Hot_%2B_Rhapsody), a tribute to George Gershwin (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/George_Gershwin), which raised money for various charities devoted to increasing AIDS awareness and fighting the disease.

Great choice, Whitey!

Every artist has a recording of that song. Even Janis Joplin!

When The Saints Go Marchin In

"When the Saints Go Marching In", often referred to as "The Saints", is an American (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/United_States)gospel hymn (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Gospel_music) that has taken on certain aspects of folk music (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Folk_music). Though it originated as a spiritual (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Spiritual_(music)), today people are more likely to hear it played by a jazz (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jazz) band. The song is sometimes confused with a similarly titled composition "When the Saints are Marching In" from 1896 by Katharine Purvis (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Katharine_Purvis) (lyrics) and James Milton Black (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/James_Milton_Black) (music).[1] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-0)

The Forerunners of Christ with Saints and Martyrs, a painting by Fra Angelico (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Fra_Angelico), 15th century

A traditional use of the song is as a funeral march (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Funeral_march). In the funeral music tradition of New Orleans, Louisiana (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/New_Orleans,_Louisiana), often called the "jazz funeral (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jazz_funeral)", while accompanying the coffin to the cemetery, a band would play the tune as a dirge (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Dirge). On the way back from the interment, it would switch to the familiar upbeat "hot" or "Dixieland (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Dixieland)" style. While the tune is still heard as a slow spiritual number on rare occasions, from the mid 20th century it has been more commonly performed as a "hot" number. The number remains particularly associated with the city of New Orleans, to the extent that it is associated with New Orleans' professional football (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/American_football) team, the New Orleans Saints (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/New_Orleans_Saints). Both vocal and instrumental renditions of the song abound. Louis Armstrong (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Louis_Armstrong) was one of the first to make the tune into a nationally known pop-tune in the 1930s. Armstrong wrote that his sister told him she thought the secular performance style of the traditional church tune was inappropriate and irreligious. Armstrong was in a New Orleans tradition of turning church numbers into brass band and dance numbers that went back at least to Buddy Bolden (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Buddy_Bolden)'s band at the very start of the 20th century.
The tune was brought into the early rock and roll (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Rock_and_roll) repertory by Fats Domino (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Fats_Domino) and (as "The Saint's Rock and Roll") by Bill Haley & His Comets (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Bill_Haley_%26_His_Comets).
A jazz standard (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jazz_standard), it has been recorded by a great many other jazz and pop artists.
It is nicknamed "The Monster" by some jazz musicians, as it seems to be the only tune some people know to request when seeing a Dixieland band, and some musicians dread being asked to play it several times a night. The musicians at Preservation Hall (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Preservation_Hall) in New Orleans (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/New_Orleans) got so tired of playing it that the sign announcing the fee schedule ran $1 for standard requests, $2 for unusual requests, and $5 for "The Saints". (This was in early 1960s dollars (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/United_States_dollar). By 2004 the price had gone up to $10.)
This tune and often the words are often used as a popular theme or rallying song for a number of sports teams (see When The Saints Go Marching In in sport (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/When_The_Saints_Go_Marching_In_in_sport)). It is the main anthem of Southampton F.C. (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Southampton_F.C.), St Kilda Football Club (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/St_Kilda_Football_Club), St George Illawarra Dragonsand (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/St_George_Illawarra_Dragons) the St Helens RLFC (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/St_Helens_RLFC)
The Rhodesian Light Infantry (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Rhodesian_Light_Infantry), also known as "The Saints", used it as their regimental march.
In the Southern gospel (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Southern_gospel) genre the song is often associated with Luther G. Presley (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Luther_G._Presley),[2] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-1) who wrote the lyrics, and Virgil Oliver Stamps (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Virgil_Oliver_Stamps), who wrote the music, whose version copyrighted by the Stamps-Baxter Music Company (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Stamps-Baxter_Music_Company) popularized it as a gospel song (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Gospel_song).[3] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-2) A similar version was copyrighted by R.E. Winsett (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/R.E._Winsett).[4] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-3)

"I'm In The Mood For Love" is a popular (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Popular_music)song (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Song). The music was written by Jimmy McHugh (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jimmy_McHugh), the lyrics by Dorothy Fields (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Dorothy_Fields). The song was published in 1935 (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/1935_in_music). It was introduced by Frances Langford (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Frances_Langford) in the movie (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Movie) Every Night at Eight (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Every_Night_at_Eight) released that year (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/1935_in_film).

"Stella by Starlight" is a jazz standard (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jazz_standard) written by Victor Young (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victor_Young) and featured in The Uninvited (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Uninvited_(1944_film)), a 1944 film released by Paramount Pictures (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paramount_Pictures). Originally played in the film as an instrumental theme song (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theme_song) without lyrics, it was turned over to Ned Washington (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ned_Washington), who wrote the lyrics (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lyrics) for it in 1946. The title had to be incorporated into the lyrics, which resulted in its unusual placement: the phrase appears about three quarters of the way through the song, rather than at the beginning or the end.

Recording history

"Stella by Starlight" is one of the most popular standards, ranked number 10 by the website jazzstandards.com. Its May 1947 recording by Harry James (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_James) and his orchestra reached the 21st place in the pop charts. Two months later, the recording by Frank Sinatra (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Sinatra) with Axel Stordahl (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Axel_Stordahl) and his orchestra also rose to the 21st position.
Charlie Parker (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charlie_Parker), playing alto saxophone (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alto_saxophone), made the first jazz recording of the song in January 1952, which was shortly followed by a tenor sax version by Stan Getz (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stan_Getz) (December 1952), a piano version by Bud Powell (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bud_Powell), and a rendition by the big band (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_band) of Stan Kenton (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stan_Kenton), which featured bass trombonist George Roberts (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Roberts). Instrumental versions were played by Miles Davis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miles_Davis), which first appeared on 1958 Miles (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1958_Miles), Earl Grant (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earl_Grant), Joe Pass (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Pass) and Dexter Gordon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dexter_Gordon) and vocal versions sung by Billy Eckstine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billy_Eckstine), Dick Haymes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dick_Haymes), Ray Charles (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ray_Charles), Helen Reddy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helen_Reddy), Tony Bennett (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tony_Bennett), Ella Fitzgerald (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ella_Fitzgerald), and many others.
In 1993, guitarist Larry Coryell (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larry_Coryell) covered the song from his album "Fallen Angel."[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stella_By_Starlight#cite_note-0)[2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stella_By_Starlight#cite_note-1)
Film scores

"Stella by Starlight" (performed by Victor Young orchestra) is a recurring theme in The Uninvited. At a focal point of the film, the main character, Rod (Ray Milland (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ray_Milland)) tells Stella (Gail Russell (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gail_Russell)) that he is playing a serenade (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serenade), "To Stella by Starlight".
The song also appeared in the following films:

The Nutty Professor (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Nutty_Professor) (1963) with Jerry Lewis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerry_Lewis) singing to Stella Stevens (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stella_Stevens), as well as an upbeat version for the film's main titles.
Sabrina (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sabrina_(1995_film)) (1995) as part of the track "The Party Sequence"

"The Girl from Ipanema" ("Garota de Ipanema") is a well-known bossa nova (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Bossa_nova) song, a worldwide hit in the mid-1960s that won a Grammy for Record of the Year in 1965 (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Grammy_Awards_of_1965). It was written in 1962, with music by Antonio Carlos Jobim (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Antonio_Carlos_Jobim) and Portuguese lyrics by Vinicius de Moraes (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Vinicius_de_Moraes). English (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/English_language) lyrics were written later by Norman Gimbel (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Norman_Gimbel).[1] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-0)
The first commercial recording was in 1962, by Pery Ribeiro. The version performed by Astrud Gilberto (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Astrud_Gilberto), along with Joăo Gilberto (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jo%C3%A3o_Gilberto) and Stan Getz (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Stan_Getz), from the 1964 album Getz/Gilberto (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Getz/Gilberto), became an international hit, reaching number five in the United States pop chart, number 29 in the United Kingdom, and charting highly throughout the world. Numerous recordings have been used in films, sometimes as an elevator music (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Elevator_music)cliché (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Clich%C3%A9) (for example, near the end of The Blues Brothers (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Blues_Brothers_(film))). Ipanema (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ipanema) is a seaside neighborhood located in the southern region of the city of Rio de Janeiro.
In 2004, it was one of 50 recordings chosen that year by the Library of Congress (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Library_of_Congress) to be added to the National Recording Registry (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/National_Recording_Registry).[2] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-1)


http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/e/ea/Helo_Pinheiro.jpg/150px-Helo_Pinheiro.jpg (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/File:Helo_Pinheiro.jpg)http://bits.wikimedia.org/skins-1.17/common/images/magnify-clip.png (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/File:Helo_Pinheiro.jpg)
Helô Pinheiro (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Helo%C3%ADsa_Pinheiro) is the "girl from Ipanema".

The song was composed for a musical comedy entitled Dirigível (Blimp), then a work-in-progress of Vinícius de Moraes. The original title was "Menina que Passa" (The Girl Who Passes By); the famous first verse was different. Jobim composed the melody on his piano in his new house in Rua Barăo da Torre, in Ipanema. In turn, Moraes had written the lyrics in Petrópolis, near Rio de Janeiro, as he had done with Chega de Saudade (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Chega_de_Saudade) six years earlier.
The song was inspired by Heloísa Eneida Menezes Paes Pinto (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Helo%C3%ADsa_Pinheiro) (now Helô Pinheiro), a fifteen-year-old girl living on Montenegro Street in the fashionable Ipanema (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ipanema) district in Rio de Janeiro (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Rio_de_Janeiro), Brazil.[citation needed (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Wikipedia:Citation_needed)] Daily she would stroll past the popular Veloso bar-café, not just to the beach ("each day when she walks to the sea"), but in the everyday course of her life. She would sometimes enter the bar to buy cigarettes for her mother and leave to the sound of wolf-whistles.[3] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-2) In the winter of 1962 the composers watched the girl pass by the bar, and it is easy to imagine why they noticed her — Helô was a 173-cm (five-foot eight-inch) brunette, and she attracted the attention of many of the bar patrons. Since the song became popular, she has become a celebrity.
In Revelaçăo: a verdadeira Garota de Ipanema (Revealed: The Real Girl from Ipanema) Moraes wrote she was:
"o paradigma do broto carioca; a moça dourada, misto de flor e sereia, cheia de luz e de graça mas cuja a visăo é também triste, pois carrega consigo, a caminho do mar, o sentimento da mocidade que passa, da beleza que năo é só nossa — é um dom da vida em seu lindo e melancólico fluir e refluir constante."Translation:
"the paradigm of the young Carioca (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Carioca): a golden teenage girl, a mixture of flower and mermaid, full of light and grace, the sight of whom is also sad, in that she carries with her, on her route to the sea, the feeling of youth that fades, of the beauty that is not ours alone — it is a gift of life in its beautiful and melancholic constant ebb and flow."Legal disputes

In 2001, the song's copyright owners (heirs of their composer fathers) sued Pinheiro for using the title of the song as the name of her boutique (Garota de Ipanema). In their complaint, they stated that her status as The Girl from Ipanema (Garota de Ipanema) does not entitle her to use a name that legally belongs to the heirs.[4] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-3)[5] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-ls-4) Public support was strong in favor of Pinheiro. A press release by Jobim and Moraes, the composers, in which they had named Pinheiro as the real Girl from Ipanema (Garota de Ipanema) was evidence that they had intended to bestow this title on her. The court ruled in favor of Pinheiro.[6] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-5)
In a separate legal dispute, Astrud Gilberto (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Astrud_Gilberto) sued Frito-Lay (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Frito-Lay) for trademark infringement (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Trademark_infringement) for using the song in a TV ad for its baked potato chips. Gilberto argued that

as the result of the huge success of the 1964 recording, and her frequent subsequent performances of "Ipanema," she has become known as The Girl from Ipanema and is identified by the public with the 1964 recording. She claims as a result to have earned trademark rights in the 1964 recording, which she contends the public recognizes as a mark designating her as a singer. She contends, therefore, that Frito-Lay could not lawfully use the 1964 recording in an advertisement for its chips without her permission.[7] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-frito-6)
In Oliveria v. Frito-Lay Inc. (2001), her claims were rejected by the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/United_States_Court_of_Appeals_for_the_Second_Circuit).[7] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-frito-6)
Disco version

In 1977, a disco version of "The Girl from Ipanema" by Astrud Gilberto was released, produced by Vincent Montana featuring a distinct Salsoul style disco sound.
In Vegas Vacation (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Vegas_Vacation), the song is used during a scene on the plane.
The instrumental version was played in a 2005 episode of Everybody Loves Raymond (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Everybody_Loves_Raymond) entitled "The Power of No."
The Boy from Ipanema

When sung by female artists the song has often been rendered as The Boy from Ipanema. A few examples:

and various others"My Favorite Things" is a show tune (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Show_tune) from the 1959 (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/1959_in_music) Rodgers and Hammerstein (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Rodgers_and_Hammerstein) musical (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Musical_theatre) The Sound of Music (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Sound_of_Music).

The Sound of Music version

The song was first introduced by Mary Martin (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Mary_Martin) in the original Broadway (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Broadway_theater) production, and sung by Julie Andrews (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Julie_Andrews) in the 1965 film (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Sound_of_Music_(film)).
In the musical, the lyrics to the song are a reference to things Maria (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Maria_von_Trapp) loves, such as 'raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens'. These are the things she selects to fill her mind with when times are bad.
The original Broadway musical places this song in the Mother Abbess's office, just before she sends Maria (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Maria_von_Trapp) to serve Captain von Trapp (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Georg_Ritter_von_Trapp)'s family as governess to his seven children. However, Ernest Lehman (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ernest_Lehman), the screenwriter for the film adaptation, repositioned this song so that Maria would sing it with the children during the thunderstorm scene in her bedroom, replacing "The Lonely Goatherd (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Lonely_Goatherd)", which had originally been sung at this point. Many stage productions also make this change, shifting "The Lonely Goatherd" to another scene.
The first section of the melody has the distinctive property of using only the notes 1, 2, and 5 (Do, Re, and Sol) of the scale. Rodgers then harmonized this same section of the melody differently in different stanzas, using a series of minor triads (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Triad_(music)) one time and major triads the next.
The song ends with a borrowed line of lyric and notes from Rodgers' earlier composition with Lorenz Hart (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Lorenz_Hart), "Glad to Be Unhappy (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Glad_to_Be_Unhappy)," a standard about finding peace in the midst of unrequited love. Using the same two notes for the phrasing of "so sad" in the original song, Rodgers brings the gloom of my "Favorite Things" to a similar upbeat ending – "and then I don't feel so bad."
Cover versions

The song has been recorded literally[1] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-0) hundreds of times. Jazz (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jazz) artist John Coltrane (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/John_Coltrane) did an extended, close to fourteen-minute version on his 1961 album taken from the title of the song (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/My_Favorite_Things_(album)). It became a jazz classic and a signature for Coltrane in concert, also apppearing on New Thing at Newport (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/New_Thing_at_Newport) and Live at the Half Note: One Down, One Up (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Live_at_the_Half_Note:_One_Down,_One_Up) in 1965, and Live at the Village Vanguard Again! (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Live_at_the_Village_Vanguard_Again!) in 1966.
While it was never conceived as a Christmas song (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Christmas_song), the wintertime imagery of some of the lyrics has made "My Favorite Things" a popular selection during the holiday season, and it often appears on seasonal albums and compilations. For example, The Supremes (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Supremes) recorded the song on their 1965 Christmas album, Merry Christmas. Barbra Streisand (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Barbra_Streisand) recorded it for A Christmas Album (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/A_Christmas_Album_(Barbra_Streisand_album)) in 1967, as did Tony Bennett (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Tony_Bennett) on his seasonal album (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Snowfall:_The_Tony_Bennett_Christmas_Album) the following year. Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Herb_Alpert_and_the_Tijuana_Brass) had a #45 Billboard 100 (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Billboard_100) hit single (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Hit_single) with the song in 1969, taken off their Christmas Album (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Christmas_Album_(Herb_Alpert_album)). Country music (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Country_music) singer Lorrie Morgan (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Lorrie_Morgan) covered the song on her 1993 Christmas album Merry Christmas from London (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Merry_Christmas_from_London). This version received Christmas airplay in 1994 and again in 1999, bringing it to #64 and #69, respectively, on the Hot Country Songs (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Hot_Country_Songs) charts in those years.[2] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-whitburn-1) Barry Manilow (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Barry_Manilow) recorded the song for his album A Christmas Gift of Love (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/A_Christmas_Gift_of_Love) in 2002. Jazz saxophonist Kenny G (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Kenny_G) covered the song for his 2005 album The Greatest Holiday Classics (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Greatest_Holiday_Classics).
Critically acclaimed hip hop duo Outkast (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Outkast) sampled the song in their album Speakerboxxx/The Love Below (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Speakerboxxx/The_Love_Below).
Panic! at the Disco (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Panic!_at_the_Disco)'s song Build God, Then We'll Talk (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Build_God,_Then_We%27ll_Talk) includes a verse that parodies My Favorite Things (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/My_Favorite_Things).
The Animaniacs (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Animaniacs) episode "The Sound of Warners", a parody (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Parody) of The Sound of Music, has a similar song called "That's What I Ponder When I Am Afraid", sung by Prunella Flundergust when she thinks Yakko, Wakko, and Dot are afraid of the lighting.
A filk (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Filk_music) version of the song with lyrics revolving around old age, first seen on the Usenet newsgroup alt.idiots in June 2001, has become attached to an urban legend (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Urban_legend) claiming that it was sung by Julie Andrews (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Julie_Andrews) herself at a benefit concert for AARP (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/AARP).[3] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-2)
In 2008 the indie group Pomplamoose (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Pomplamoose) released a video song for My Favorite Things. The track also appears on their 2009 release "Video Songs."
'Glee (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Glee_(TV_series))' actress Lea Michele (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Lea_Michele) did a cover of the song featured in a Dove shampoo commercial.
A re-worded version of the song was created by Borgore, an Isreali DubStep Producer.

Following "When You Wish Upon A Star (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/When_You_Wish_Upon_A_Star)" from Pinocchio (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Pinocchio_(1940_film)), this is the second highest ranked song from a Disney movie.
As a jazz standard

The song was performed in the 1948 film Mickey as "One Day My Prince Will Come".
In 1957, the jazz (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jazz) pianist (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Pianist) Dave Brubeck (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Dave_Brubeck), inspired by an anthology of Disney tunes owned by his child, included a version of the song on the album Dave Digs Disney (http://forum.xnxx.com/w/index.php?title=Dave_Digs_Disney&action=edit&redlink=1).
The song quickly became popular amongst jazz musicians, who considered its chord sequence to be particularly satisfying.[citation needed (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Wikipedia:Citation_needed)] Later versions were recorded by Bill Evans (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Bill_Evans), Miles Davis (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Miles_Davis), Oscar Peterson (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Oscar_Peterson), and many times by Herbie Hancock (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Herbie_Hancock), who would use it as the basis for a virtuoso showpiece display.
The recording on the 1961 Miles Davis (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Miles_Davis) album, Someday My Prince Will Come (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Someday_My_Prince_Will_Come_(album)), features a pedal point (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Pedal_point) interlude between choruses that has often been imitated. Pianist Wynton Kelly (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Wynton_Kelly), who performed on Davis' version, recorded the track as a trio later that year on his own album of the same name (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Someday_My_Prince_Will_Come_(Wynton_Kelly_album)).
Lena Horne (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Lena_Horne), in 1976 sang a version with the Robert Farnon (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Robert_Farnon) Orchestra and Phil Woods (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Phil_Woods) on A New Album (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Lena:_A_New_Album).
The Chet Baker (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Chet_Baker) Trio recorded an album called Someday My Prince Will Come in 1979.
Sun Ra (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Sun_Ra)'s 1989 live album Second Star to the Right includes a version of the song that incorporated both vocals and an extended rubato saxophone solo.
Bassist Stanley Clarke (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Stanley_Clarke) recorded a cover on the album Jazz in the Garden (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jazz_in_the_Garden). The album features Lenny White (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Lenny_White) on drums.[1] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-0)

Andrew Lepley/Redferns Joe Morello, 1928-2011.

Drummer Joe Morello, the longtime drummer with the Dave Brubeck (http://www.npr.org/artists/15156676/dave-brubeck) Quartet, has died.
Raised in Springfield, Mass. with impaired vision from birth, Morello eventually found his way to New York City, where he played with many leading jazz musicians. In the 1950s, he was a regular member of pianist and NPR host Marian McPartland's band. In 1990, that band, known as the Hickory House Trio after the venue of their employment, reconvened to tape a special reunion episode of Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz (http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=15123976).
However, Morello is best known for his tenure with Brubeck, who employed him for over 12 years during the height of Brubeck's fame. Famously, the smash hit "Take Five" was arranged as a solo feature (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9tTyTc6FjjU) for Morello.
Source: YouTube

After the Brubeck quartet disbanded in 1968, Morello eventually turned to teaching, whether private lessons, clinics or instructional books. He died Saturday morning, March 12, 2011 at his home in New Jersey. He was 82.
UPDATE: Dave Brubeck has released a statement, via an e-mail from his wife, Iola Brubeck. Here it is:

The loss of my friend Joe Morello came as a complete shock to me. Many people consider the rhythm section of Eugene Wright and Joe Morello in my Quartet as being one of the most consistent, swinging rhythm sections in jazz. Joe was a pioneer in odd-time signatures and a vital part of the "time" series the Quartet made at Columbia Records. His drum solo on "Take Five" is still being heard around the world. Drummers world-wide remember Joe as one of the greatest drummers we have known. He was a good friend. Eugene and I talked yesterday about how much we will miss him.

"Take Five" is a jazz piece written by Paul Desmond (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Paul_Desmond) and performed by The Dave Brubeck Quartet (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Dave_Brubeck_Quartet) on their 1959 album Time Out (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Time_Out_(album)). Recorded at Columbia's 30th Street Studios (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/CBS_30th_Street_Studio) in New York City on June 25, July 1, and August 18, 1959,[1] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-0) this piece became one of the group's best-known records, famous for its distinctive, catchy saxophone melody and use of the unusual quintuple (5/4) time (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/5/4_time), from which its name is derived.[2] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-1) While "Take Five" was not the first jazz composition to use this meter (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Metre_(music)), it was one of the first in the United States to achieve mainstream significance, reaching #25 on the Billboard Hot 100 (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Billboard_Hot_100) and #5 on Billboard (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Billboard_(magazine))'s Easy Listening (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Easy_Listening) survey, the precursor to today's Adult Contemporary (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Hot_Adult_Contemporary_Tracks) charts, in 1961, two years after its initial release.
"Take Five" was re-recorded and performed live multiple times by The Dave Brubeck Quartet throughout the group's career. In addition, there have been many covers of the piece. Some versions also feature lyrics, including a 1961 recording with lyrics written by Dave Brubeck (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Dave_Brubeck) and his wife Iola, sung by Carmen McRae (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Carmen_McRae). Al Jarreau (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Al_Jarreau) performed an unusual scat version of the song in Germany in 1976.
"Take Five" has been included in countless movies and television soundtracks, and still receives significant radio play.
Upon his death in 1977, Desmond left the rights to royalties for performances (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Performing_royalty#Performance_royalties) and compositions, including "Take Five", to the American Red Cross (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/American_Red_Cross), which has since received combined royalties of approximately $100,000 per year.[3] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-2)

Blue Rondo a la Turk

"Blue Rondo ŕ la Turk" is a jazz standard (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jazz_standard) composition by Dave Brubeck (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Dave_Brubeck). It appeared on the album Time Out (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Time_Out_(album)) in 1959. It is written in 9/8 (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Compound_meter_(music)) and swing (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Swing_music)4/4 (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/4/4).


Brubeck heard the unusual "1-2/1-2/1-2/1-2-3" rhythm performed by Turkish musicians on the street. Upon asking the musicians where they got the rhythm, one replied "This rhythm is to us, what the blues is to you." Hence the title "Blue Rondo ŕ la Turk."[1] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-0)
The piece is sometimes incorrectly assumed to be based on the Mozart composition "Rondo alla Turca (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Rondo_alla_Turca)." In 2003, during an interview, Dave Brubeck commented that "I should've just called it 'Blue Rondo', because the title just seemed to confuse people."[citation needed (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Wikipedia:Citation_needed)]
Derivative pieces

Keith Emerson (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Keith_Emerson) used this song (uncredited) when he was with progressive rock band The Nice (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Nice), using it as the basis of "Rondo" from the album The Thoughts of Emerlist Davjack (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Thoughts_of_Emerlist_Davjack). Later, Emerson folded the melody into the 14-minute "Finale (Medley)" on the 1993 Emerson, Lake & Palmer (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Emerson,_Lake_%26_Palmer) release Live at the Royal Albert Hall (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Live_at_the_Royal_Albert_Hall_(Emerson,_Lake_and_Palmer_album)), as well as improvisations on "Fanfare for the Common Man (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Fanfare_for_the_Common_Man)". Those medleys also included themes from other well-known tunes including "América (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/America_(West_Side_Story_song))" from West Side Story (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/West_Side_Story), "Toccata and Fugue in D (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Toccata_and_Fugue_in_D_minor,_BWV_565)", and "Flight of the Bumblebee (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Flight_of_the_Bumblebee)". Emerson has frequently used the "Rondo" as a closing number during live performances through his career.
French singer Claude Nougaro (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Claude_Nougaro) used this composition as a musical foundation for his song "Ŕ bout de souffle".
The song "Vesuvius" by Frank Ticheli (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Frank_Ticheli) borrows a motif from Blue Rondo.
Cover versions

In 2008, well-known pianist in the jazz fusion (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jazz_fusion)\contemporary jazz (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Smooth_jazz) scene David Benoit (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/David_Benoit_(musician)) covered the song from two of his albums, 2006's "Standards"[2] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-1) and renditions-packed album "Heroes"[3] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-2)[4] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-3)

Yes, a lot of 4 meter drummers could learn somthing from him.
He became a teacher to put bread on the table, like many jazz musicians.

(1959)The Riddle (http://forum.xnxx.com/w/index.php?title=The_Riddle_(Dave_Brubeck_album)&action=edit&redlink=1)
(1959)Time Out is a 1959 album (originally issued as CS 8192) by The Dave Brubeck Quartet (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Dave_Brubeck_Quartet), based upon the use of time signatures (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Time_signature) that were unusual for jazz (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jazz) (mainly waltz (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Waltz) or double-waltz time, but also 9/8, and most famously 5/4). The style is a subtle blend of cool (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Cool_jazz) and West Coast (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/West_Coast_jazz) jazz.[2] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-Dummies-1)[3] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-Meet-2)
Although the album was intended as an experiment (Columbia president Goddard Lieberson (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Goddard_Lieberson) was willing to chance releasing it) and received negative reviews by critics upon its release, it became one of the best-known and biggest-selling jazz albums, reaching number two in the U.S. (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/United_States) Billboard (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Billboard_magazine) "Pop Albums" chart, and produced one single (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Single_(music))—Paul Desmond (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Paul_Desmond)'s "Take Five (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Take_Five)"—that reached number five in the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Adult_Contemporary_chart).
In 2005, it was one of 50 recordings chosen that year by the Library of Congress (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Library_of_Congress) to be added to the National Recording Registry (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/National_Recording_Registry). It was also listed on the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/1001_Albums_You_Must_Hear_Before_You_Die).


The album is a blend of cool (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Cool_jazz) and West Coast (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/West_Coast_jazz) jazz.[2] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-Dummies-1) Although the theme (and the title) of Time Out is non-common-time signatures, things are not quite so simple. "Blue Rondo ŕ la Turk (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Blue_Rondo_%C3%A0_la_Turk)" starts in 9/8, with a typically Balkan 2+2+2+3 subdivision into short and long beats (the rhythm of the Turkish zeybek (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Zeybek_dance), equivalent of the Greek zeibekiko (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Zeibekiko)) as opposed to the more Western 3+3+3 pattern, but the saxophone and piano solos are in 4/4. (Despite its title, "Blue Rondo ŕ la Turk" is a play on Mozart (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Wolfgang_Amadeus_Mozart)'s "Rondo alla Turca" from his Piano Sonata No. 11 (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Piano_Sonata_No._11_(Mozart)),[3] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-Meet-2) along with a Turkish rhythm that Brubeck heard.)[4] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-3)
"Strange Meadow Lark" begins with a piano solo that exhibits no clear time signature but then settles into a fairly ordinary 4/4 swing once the rest of the group joins. "Take Five" ("supposed to be a Joe Morello (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Joe_Morello) drum solo", according to Desmond) is in 5/4 throughout. "Three to Get Ready" begins in waltz-time, after which it begins to alternate between two measures of 3/4 (the waltz-time), and two of 4/4. "Kathy's Waltz" (misspelled, but named after Brubeck's daughter, Cathy) starts in 4/4, and only later switches to double-waltz time, before merging the two. "Everybody's Jumpin'" is mainly in a very flexible 6/4, while "Pick Up Sticks" firms that up into a clear and steady 6/4.
It has been speculated that "Kathy's Waltz" inspired the song "All My Loving (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/All_My_Loving)", written by Paul McCartney (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Paul_McCartney) and performed by The Beatles (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Beatles), as they share similar rhythmic endings to the last phrases of their melodies.[5] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-4)

Misty" is a jazz standard (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jazz_standard) written in 1954 by the pianist Erroll Garner (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Erroll_Garner).
Originally composed as an instrumental following the traditional 32-bar format, the tune later had lyrics by Johnny Burke (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Johnny_Burke_(lyricist)) and became the signature song (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Signature_song) of Johnny Mathis (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Johnny_Mathis), reaching #12 on the U.S. Pop Singles (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Billboard_Hot_100) chart in 1959. It has been covered numerous times, perhaps most notably by Ella Fitzgerald (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ella_Fitzgerald), Sarah Vaughan (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Sarah_Vaughan) (1959 (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/1959_in_music)), Billy Eckstine (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Billy_Eckstine) (1960), Frank Sinatra (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Frank_Sinatra) and Earl Grant (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Earl_Grant) (1961 (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/1961_in_music)), Lloyd Price (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Lloyd_Price) (1963 (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/1963_in_music)), and also by Ray Stevens (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ray_Stevens) (1975 (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/1975_in_music)) as a country (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Country_music) song.

"Stolen Moments" is a jazz standard (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jazz_standard) composed by Oliver Nelson (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Oliver_Nelson). It is a sixteen-bar piece (in an eight-six-two pattern), though the solos (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Solo_(music)) are on a conventional minor key (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Minor_key)12 bar blues (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/12_bar_blues) structure.
The piece first appeared as "The Stolen Moment" on the 1960 album (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Album) "Trane Whistle (http://forum.xnxx.com/w/index.php?title=Trane_Whistle&action=edit&redlink=1)" by Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Eddie_%22Lockjaw%22_Davis), which was largely written and co-arranged by Oliver Nelson. It was not marked out as anything special, in fact the covernotes only mention that the trumpet solo is by Bob Bryant (http://forum.xnxx.com/w/index.php?title=Bob_Bryant&action=edit&redlink=1) and that Eric Dolphy (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Eric_Dolphy)'s bass clarinet can be heard briefly on the closing. However, in the liner notes to Eric Dolphy: The Complete Prestige Recordings, Bill Kirchner states that this incorrectly credits Dolphy with playing what's actually the baritone saxophone of George Barrow, with Dolphy's contribution to the piece being the 2nd alto behind Nelson. Its first well-known recording was the version on Nelson's own 1961 album The Blues and the Abstract Truth (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Blues_and_the_Abstract_Truth). Nelson's solo on this version contains "possibly the most famous" use of the augmented scale (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Augmented_scale) in jazz[1] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-Secrets-0).
Singer Mark Murphy (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Mark_Murphy_(singer)) wrote lyrics (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Lyrics) for his 1978 version.
Ann Fischer later wrote different lyrics (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Lyrics) to Nelson's original melody. They were first recorded on the 1987 album The Carmen McRae-Betty Carter Duets (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Carmen_McRae-Betty_Carter_Duets). This vocal version of "Stolen Moments" was given the alternate title "You Belong to Her".

"Stolen Moments" has been recorded numerous times. Although Oliver Nelson himself has never used the title as an album title, quite a lot of other artists have. In 1994 the title was used for a compilation album in the Red Hot AIDS Benefit Series (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Red_Hot_AIDS_Benefit_Series), which helped popularize this and other jazz standards among a wider audience.

"Lullaby of Birdland" is a 1952 popular (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Popular_music)song (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Song) with music by George Shearing (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/George_Shearing) and lyrics by George David Weiss (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/George_David_Weiss) under the pseudonym "B. Y. Forster" in order to circumvent the rule that ASCAP (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/ASCAP) and BMI (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Broadcast_Music_Incorporated) composers could not collaborate. The title refers to Charlie "Bird" Parker (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Charlie_Parker) and the Birdland jazz club (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Birdland_(jazz_club)) named after him. The song has been recorded by many vocal and instrumental performers, including Ella Fitzgerald (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ella_Fitzgerald) (1954 chart record), Chris Connor (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Chris_Connor), Sarah Vaughan (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Sarah_Vaughan), Chaka Khan (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Chaka_Khan), Mel Torme (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Mel_Torme), Nikki Yanofsky (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Nikki_Yanofsky), pianist Friedrich Gulda (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Friedrich_Gulda), Korean singer Insooni (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Insooni), Finnish (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Finland) singer Olavi Virta (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Olavi_Virta) (in Finnish (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Finnish_language)) and Italian singer Mina (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Mina_(singer)). In Stan Freberg's comic version of "The Great Pretender", the jazz pianist ad libs the first six notes of "Lullaby of Birdland", before the singer angrily shouts "WATCH IT!!"
Oh, lullaby of birdland, that's what IAlways hear when you sigh,Never in my wordland could there be ways to revealin a phrase how I feelHave you ever heard two turtle dovesBill and coo, when they love?That's the kind of magic music we make with our lipsWhen we kissAnd there's a weepy old willowHe really knows how to cry,That's how I'd cry in my pillowIf you should tell me farewell and goodbyeLullaby of birdland whisper lowKiss me sweet, and we'll goFlying high in birdland, high in the sky up aboveAll because we're in love

Seven Steps to Heaven is an album recorded in 1963 by Miles Davis (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Miles_Davis). On the 16th and 17th of April, a quintet comprising Davis, George Coleman (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/George_Coleman), Victor Feldman (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Victor_Feldman), Ron Carter (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ron_Carter) and Frank Butler (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Frank_Butler_(musician)) recorded all six tunes plus "Summer Night", for an album to be titled So Near, So Far. A month later, Davis re-recorded three of the tunes (tracks 2, 4 & 6) with a new quintet, replacing Feldman with Herbie Hancock (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Herbie_Hancock) and Butler with Tony Williams (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Tony_Williams). The new rhythm section of Hancock, Carter and Williams would form the nucleus of Davis's working band for the next five years. This is the last of Davis's studio albums which relies substantially on standard tunes - once Wayne Shorter (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Wayne_Shorter) joined the quintet in 1964, tunes on studio recordings were almost always composed by members of the group

Tracks 1, 3 & 5 are tracks produced from the April session with Feldman, Butler, Carter and feature Davis in a quartet setting without Coleman.

CD reissue includes an alternate take of "So Near, So Far" (from the April session) and "Summer Night", recorded by the Feldman/Butler quintet during the same sessions, but originally released on Quiet Nights (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Quiet_Nights_(Miles_Davis_and_Gil_Evans_album)).
The alternate take of "So Near, So Far" produces a rare phenomenon - an alternate take with a different rhythm section. This would be no great deal were it not for the fact that Feldman and Butler were of such a startlingly different style from Hancock and Williams, almost of a different age.

"A Night in Tunisia" is a musical composition (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Musical_composition) written by Dizzy Gillespie (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Dizzy_Gillespie) in 1942 (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/1942) while he was playing with the Earl Hines (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Earl_Hines) Band. It has become a jazz standard (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jazz_standard).
It is also known as "Interlude",[1] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-0) under which title it was recorded (with lyrics) by Sarah Vaughan (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Sarah_Vaughan) and Anita O'Day (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Anita_O%27Day). Gillespie himself called the tune "Night in Tunisia". Although the song is sometimes titled “A Night in Tunisia (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Tunisia)”, the proper title is “Night in Tunisia.” The song appears as the title track of 30 CDs and is included in over 500 currently available CDs. In January 2004, The Recording Academy added the Dizzy Gillespie & His Sextet’s 1946 Victor recording of “Night in Tunisia” to its Grammy Hall of Fame (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Grammy_Hall_of_Fame).
"Night in Tunisia" was one of the signature pieces of Gillespie's bebop (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Bebop) big band (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Big_band), and he also played it with his small groups.

The complex bass line (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Bass_line) in the "A section" is notable for avoiding the standard walking bass (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Walking_bass) pattern of straight quarter notes (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Quarter_note), and the use of oscillating half-step-up/half-step-down chord changes (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Chord_changes) gives the song a unique, mysterious feeling. Like many of Gillespie's tunes, it features a short written introduction and a brief interlude that occurs between solo sections — in this case, a twelve-bar sequence leading into a four-bar break (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Break_(music)) for the next soloist.
Cover versions and adaptations

One of its most famous performances is Charlie Parker (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Charlie_Parker)'s recording for Dial. (Dial even released a fragmentary take of it simply titled "The Famous Alto Break". (See Charlie Parker's Savoy and Dial Sessions (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Charlie_Parker%27s_Savoy_and_Dial_Sessions) for more info.) The song also became closely identified with Art Blakey (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Art_Blakey)'s Jazz Messengers, who often gave showstopping performances of it with extra percussion from the entire horn section. On the album A Night at Birdland Vol. 1 (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/A_Night_at_Birdland_Vol._1), Blakey introduces the piece with the story of how he was present when Dizzy composed it "on the bottom of a garbage can." The liner notes say, "The Texas department of sanitation can take a low bow."

It has been covered (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Cover_version) in various styles by various artists, including:

Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Art_Blakey_and_the_Jazz_Messengers) in 1957 (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/A_Night_in_Tunisia_(1957_album)) and 1960 (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/A_Night_in_Tunisia_(1960_album))

The song was a part of the Blue Devils Drum and Bugle Corps (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Blue_Devils_Drum_and_Bugle_Corps)' show in 1997.

Funny thing about "A Night In Tunisia" for me, Whitey-----depending on the version, I either like it or hate it. Even the three versions I own by Art Blakey: One I really love and the other two---eh.

I don't like the AB&JM version so much either. But, it's somthing different than the original.

"Cheek to Cheek" is a song written by Irving Berlin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irving_Berlin), and first performed by Fred Astaire (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fred_Astaire) in the movie Top Hat (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Top_Hat) (1935). Astaire's 1935 recording with the Leo Reisman Orchestra (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leo_Reisman) was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grammy_Hall_of_Fame) in 2000.
The song is probably most famous for its opening lines, "Heaven, I'm in heaven, and my heart beats so that I can hardly speak..." and quickly became a standard of the Great American Songbook (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_American_Songbook). The lyrics were parodied by Berlin himself in his subsequent song He Ain't Got Rhythm, from the film On the Avenue (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/On_the_Avenue) (1937).
The song, as sung by Astaire, and separately by Ella Fitzgerald (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ella_Fitzgerald) (see her 1956 album "Ella and Louis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ella_and_Louis)"), is featured in the movie The English Patient (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_English_Patient_%28film%29), and the version by Glenn Miller in Les Misérables (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Les_Mis%C3%A9rables_%281995_film%29). It is sung by Kenneth Branagh (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenneth_Branagh) in Love's Labour's Lost (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Love%27s_Labour%27s_Lost_%282000_movie%29). The original Astaire version is also featured in The Green Mile (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Green_Mile_%28film%29), Rain Man (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rain_Man) and The Purple Rose of Cairo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Purple_Rose_of_Cairo), when Top Hat is being viewed.

Blue Skies
by Irving Berlin

Ella Fitzgerald

Art Tatum Piano solo

George Van Eps and Howard Alden (featuring two guitars)

Frank Sinatra

Bing Crosby

Willie Nelson (not jazz style, but, still the SAME STANDARD)

"Blue Skies" is a popular (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Popular_music) song (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Song), written by Irving Berlin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irving_Berlin) in 1926.


The song was composed in 1926 as a last minute addition to the Rodgers and Hart (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rodgers_and_Hart) musical (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Musical_theatre), Betsy. Although the show only ran for 39 performances, "Blue Skies" was an instant success, with audiences on opening night demanding 24 encores of the piece from star, Belle Baker (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belle_Baker).[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Skies_%28song%29#cite_note-0) During the final repetition, Ms. Baker forgot her lyrics, prompting Berlin to sing them from his seat in the front row.[citation needed (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Citation_needed)]
In 1927 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1927_in_music), the music was published and Ben Selvin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Selvin)'s recorded version was a #1 hit. That same year, it became one of the first songs to be featured in a talkie (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talkie), when Al Jolson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al_Jolson) performed it in The Jazz Singer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Jazz_Singer_%281927_film%29). 1946 was also a notable year for the song, with a Bing Crosby (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bing_Crosby)/Fred Astaire (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fred_Astaire) film (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Skies_%28film%29) taking its title, and two recorded versions by Count Basie (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Count_Basie) and Benny Goodman (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benny_Goodman)Willie Nelson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willie_Nelson)'s recording of "Blue Skies" was a #1 country music (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Country_music) hit in 1978 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1978_in_music). The fact that it became a No. 1 country song (especially by a Texan artist) was not entirely surprising as it clearly was a major western swing and country standard as a 1939 version by Moon Mullican and a 1962 Jim Reeves interpretation have shown. reaching #8 and #9 on the pop charts, respectively. Crossing genres,
"Blue Skies" is one of many popular songs whose lyrics use a "Bluebird of happiness (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bluebird_of_happiness)" as a symbol of cheer: "Bluebirds singing a song -- Nothing but bluebirds all day long."

"Alexander's Ragtime Band" is the name of a song by Irving Berlin (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Irving_Berlin). It was his first major hit, in 1911. There is some evidence, although inconclusive, that Berlin borrowed the melody from a draft composition submitted by Scott Joplin (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Scott_Joplin) that had been submitted to a publisher.[1] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-0)


Alexander's Ragtime Band" is not itself an example of the ragtime (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ragtime) musical idiom (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Idiom); apart from some mild syncopation (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Syncopation), it has almost none of ragtime's characteristic features. Nonetheless, the lyrics clearly refer to the arrival of African-American musicians on the popular scene with their then-new idea of playing standard songs in a more exciting up-tempo style.

The first lines establish the African-American context:
Oh ma honey . . . ain't you goin' to the leaderman, the ragged meter manReferences to "jazzing up" popular music include:
They can play a bugle call (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Bugle_call) like you never heard beforeSo natural that you want to go to warThat's just the bestest band what am, honey lamband:
If you care to hear the Swanee River (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Old_Folks_at_Home) played in ragtimeThe new style included new ways of playing traditional instruments as well:
There's a fiddle (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Fiddle) with notes that screechesLike a chickenAnd the clarinet (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Clarinet) is a colored petHistory

Vaudeville (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Vaudeville) singer Emma Carus (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Emma_Carus), famed for her "female baritone", is said to have been largely responsible for successfully introducing the song in Chicago and helping contribute to its immense popularity. It became identified with her, and soon worked its way back to New York where Al Jolson (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Al_Jolson) also began to perform it.[2] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-1)
The song has been recorded by many artists, including The Andrews Sisters (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Andrews_Sisters), Louis Armstrong (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Louis_Armstrong), Ray Charles (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ray_Charles), Bee Gees (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Bee_Gees), Bing Crosby (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Bing_Crosby), Ella Fitzgerald (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ella_Fitzgerald), George Formby (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/George_Formby,_Jr.), Al Jolson (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Al_Jolson), Liberace (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Liberace), Billy Murray (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Billy_Murray_(singer)), Liza Minnelli (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Liza_Minnelli), Sid Phillips (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Sid_Phillips), Bessie Smith (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Bessie_Smith) and Julie Andrews (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Julie_Andrews).

The song had a presence on the charts for five straight decades. According to Newsweek Magazine:

Four different versions of the tune charted at # 1, # 2, # 3 and # 4 in 1911 including one by Arthur Collins (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Arthur_Collins) which stayed at number one for 10 weeks.
Bessie Smith (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Bessie_Smith)'s version made the top 20 in 1927.
Louis Armstrong (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Louis_Armstrong) made the top 20 with it in 1937.
A duet by Bing Crosby (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Bing_Crosby) and Connee Boswell (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Connee_Boswell) hit #1 in 1938.
Johnny Mercer (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Johnny_Mercer) charted a swing version in 1945.
Bing Crosby (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Bing_Crosby) recorded another duet version, and hit the top-20 in 1947 with Al Jolson (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Al_Jolson).
Nellie Lutcher (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Nellie_Lutcher) put it on the R&B charts in 1948.
Bob Wills (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Bob_Wills) put it on the c&w charts in the same decade.
Johnnie Ray (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Johnnie_Ray) sang it on the silver screen in 20th Century Fox's musical There's No Business Like Show Business (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/There%27s_No_Business_Like_Show_Business) in 1954.
Ella Fitzgerald (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ella_Fitzgerald) scored with it in 1958, and received a Grammy for her Irving Berlin anthology in 1959.
Ray Charles (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ray_Charles) recorded it in 1959 for his album The Genius of Ray Charles (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Genius_of_Ray_Charles).
Bee Gees (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Bee_Gees) used the music in their tour in 1974, and sang it on The Midnight Special (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Midnight_Special_(TV_series)) TV show in 1973.[3] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-2)
A 1938 film of the same name (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Alexander%27s_Ragtime_Band_(film)) was loosely based on the song.
The song is referenced in the Emerson,_Lake_&_Palmer (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Emerson,_Lake_%26_Palmer) song Karn_Evil_9 (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Karn_Evil_9).
A version of the song set to a disco beat was recorded by Ethel Merman (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Ethel_Merman) for her infamous Ethel Merman Disco Album (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Ethel_Merman_Disco_Album) in 1979.
A snippet of the chorus of "Alexander's Ragtime Band" can be heard toward the end of Taco (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Taco_(musician))'s 1982 cover of "Puttin' on the Ritz (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Puttin%27_on_the_Ritz)", a number 4 hit in the United States.
The song was used in Tennessee (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Tennessee) politics by Lamar Alexander (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Lamar_Alexander), a trained pianist, Governor of Tennessee (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Governor_of_Tennessee) and U.S. Senator, who performed the song for campaign events, including during his 1996 run for the Republican presidential nomination.
The song was in the White Star Line Songbook onboard the R.M.S. Titanic (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/R.M.S._Titanic) was played in the 1st Class Lounge early on in the sinking. This is portrayed in James Cameron (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/James_Cameron)'s 1997 blockbuster, Titanic (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Titanic_(1997_film)).
The Georgia Tech Pep Band (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Georgia_Tech_Yellow_Jacket_Marching_Band) plays the song before every men's and women's home basketball games.
Nowadays, Liza Minnelli tends to open her concerts with the song.

"Swinging on a Star" is an American pop standard (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Pop_standard) with music composed by Jimmy Van Heusen (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jimmy_Van_Heusen) and lyrics by Johnny Burke (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Johnny_Burke_(lyricist)). It was sung by Bing Crosby (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Bing_Crosby) in the 1944 film Going My Way (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Going_My_Way), winning an Academy Award (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Academy_Award) for best song, and has been recorded by numerous artists since then.


Song writer Jimmy Van Heusen (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jimmy_Van_Heusen) was at Crosby’s house one evening for dinner, and to discuss a song for the movie Going My Way (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Going_My_Way). During the meal one of the children began complaining about how he didn’t want to go to school the next day. The singer turned to his son and said to him, “If you don’t go to school, you might grow up to be a mule. Do you wanna do that?”
Van Heusen thought this clever rebuke would make a good song for the movie. He pictured Bing, who played a priest, talking to a group of children acting much the same way as his own child had acted that night. Van Heusen took the idea to his partner lyricist (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Lyricist)Johnny Burke (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Johnny_Burke_(lyricist)), who approved. They wrote the song.[1] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-0)

The first recording of Swinging on a Star took place in Los Angeles (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Los_Angeles) on February 7, 1944, released by Decca Records (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Decca_Records). The Williams Brothers (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Williams_Brothers) quartet, including legendary crooner Andy Williams (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Andy_Williams), sang backup vocals to Crosby.[2] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-1)
It was featured in the Little Lulu (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Little_Lulu) cartoon, Bout with a Trout.

The song was parodied in a The Far Side (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/The_Far_Side) cartoon, which depicted a man-turned-pig saying to his wife, "Hey, so I made the wrong decision! [referring to the part of the song which says "Or would you rather be a pig"] But I wasn't sure I wanted to swing on a star, carry moonbeams home in a jar!"
In 1969, Ray Stevens sang "Gitarzan", which featured the wrong notes from "Swinging on a Star". ("Carrying Moonbeams Home in a Jar").
During his 2009 Tour of Refusal, Morrissey (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Morrissey) occasionally sang the chorus over the chorus of his 2004 hit "First of the Gang to Die (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/First_of_the_Gang_to_Die)".
A Prairie Home Companion (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/A_Prairie_Home_Companion) guitarist Pat Donohue (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Pat_Donohue) wrote "Would You Like to Play Guitar," which wittingly advises aspiring musicians against the practical perils of a full-time music career.

"I Thought About You" is a 1939 popular song (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Popular_song) composed by Jimmy Van Heusen (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jimmy_Van_Heusen) with lyrics by Johnny Mercer (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Johnny_Mercer). It was one of three collaborations Van Heusen and Mercer wrote for the then recently established Mercer-Morris publishing company, started by Mercer and former Warner Bros. (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Warner_Bros.) publisher Buddy Morris.[1] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-portrait-of-johnny-0) The other two were called "Blue Rain" and "Make with the Kisses". "I Thought About You" was by far the most popular of the songs.
The lyrics were inspired by Mercer's train trip to Chicago. Mercer has said about the song:

"I can remember the afternoon that we wrote it. He [Van Heusen] played me the melody. I didn't have any idea, but I had to go to Chicago that night. I think I was on the Benny Goodman (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Benny_Goodman) program. And I got to thinking about it on the train. I was awake, I couldn't sleep. The tune was running through my mind, and that's when I wrote the song. On the train, really going to Chicago."[1] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-portrait-of-johnny-0)
Mercer went on to author other songs whose central theme were trains, including "Blues in the Night (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Blues_in_the_Night)" (1940) and "On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/On_the_Atchison,_Topeka_and_the_Santa_Fe)" (1946).[2] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-1)

The song has become a jazz standard (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jazz_standard), having been performed by numerous jazz artists including:

I was going to ask you about one that I heard in the car last night, now I've completely lost it...

That happens to me all the time. I hear a song and forget what it was later when I try to recall it.

"Nancy (With the Laughing Face)" is a song composed in 1942 by Jimmy Van Heusen (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Jimmy_Van_Heusen), with lyrics by Phil Silvers (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Phil_Silvers). It is commonly believed that the song was written for the birthday of Nancy Sinatra (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Nancy_Sinatra). This was a misunderstanding that eventually led to the song being recorded by Frank Sinatra (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Frank_Sinatra).
Origin of the Song

Former broadcast executive and music historian Rick Busciglio (http://forum.xnxx.com/w/index.php?title=Rick_Busciglio&action=edit&redlink=1) tells the story of the song's inception as related to him by Van Heusen.
"In 1979, I was working with songwriter Jimmy Van Heusen on a TV special with Frank Sinatra (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Frank_Sinatra) and Bob Hope (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Bob_Hope) that was never produced. Jimmy told me that one day (circa 1942) he and his lyricist Johnny Burke (http://forum.xnxx.com/wiki/Johnny_Burke) were working at 20th Century-Fox composing for a film. While Burke was out of their writer's bungalow, Phil Silvers, the comedian, a friend to both, entered and suggested to Jimmy that they write a song for Johnny's wife, Bessie, who was soon to celebrate a birthday. Silvers provided the lyrics, later revised by Van Heusen and Burke.
At the party they sang "Bessie... with the laughing face" It was such a hit that they used it at other female birthday events. When they sang it as "Nancy... with the laughing face" at little Nancy Sinatra's birthday party, Frank broke down and cried thinking that it was written specially for his daughter - the trio wisely didn't correct him. Jimmy assigned his royalties to Nancy after Frank recorded it for Columbia." [1] (http://forum.xnxx.com/#cite_note-0)

MURRAY HORWITZ, American Film Institute: Hello, I'm Murray Horwitz asking you to close your eyes, because A.B. Spellman and I have to ask you to visualize something, right now. Jazz musicians sometimes like to paint tone pictures, and Herbie Hancock gives us a seascape in this week's entry into the NPR Basic Jazz Record Library with Maiden Voyage.
A.B. SPELLMAN, National Endowment for the Arts: And a deep and rolling sea it is, Murray. Herbie said that he wanted to evoke everything in the ocean: the flow of the current; the creatures, great, small and mythical, who live in the water; the response of voyagers, who experience it for the first time. And he's done that. But mostly, he and his collaborators have made some very satisfying music. Here's the saxophonist George Coleman at his most lyrical on the title cut.
SPELLMAN: And again from the title composition, here's Freddie Hubbard doing a John Coltrane imitation on the trumpet.
HORWITZ: Then, there's always this magnificent rhythm section, the same one that Miles Davis assembled, leading the soloists and making a context for everything that happens.
SPELLMAN: I love every minute of all the music that Hancock, the bassist Ron Carter, and the drummer Tony Williams have made together. All are strong stylists, and together they have this sensitive coherence.
HORWITZ: Not least, two of Herbie Hancock's compositions for this record date became jazz standards — "Dolphin Dance" and "Maiden Voyage." And that's not surprising, because he is one of the best composers for small ensemble in the history of jazz music.
SPELLMAN: No doubt about it, Murray.
HORWITZ: We're listening to, and we've been talking about Herbie Hancock's Maiden Voyage. It's on the Blue Note label, and it's in the NPR Basic Jazz Record Library. The Basic Jazz Record Library is funded by NPR member stations and by the Lila-Wallace Reader's Digest Fund.
SPELLMAN: For information about Maiden Voyage, and other selections, visit our Web site. For NPR Jazz, I'm A.B. Spellman.
HORWITZ: And, I'm Murray Horwitz.
