Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from June 24, 2022 Options

Bronwyn Bishop's avatar View Bronwyn Bishop's profile Options

Musical theater from off the beaten path. Obscure and unusual show tunes from within the canon and without, flops, failures, and the newest works from up-and-coming artists—plus tried-and-true hits. Also, occasional appearances from songs that are not show tunes (but only if they go really well with show tunes).

Hello Bronwyn and jazz handers.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:12pm diciassette:

Hello, I'm scintillated!
Avatar 🎭 7:40pm Listener Gregory:

Sorry I'm late! I got lost in John Steel's vibrato.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

Hello darlings! I'm so angry at the news but this music is a nice place to hide.
  7:48pm Listener Gregory:

Is Ain’t Misbehavin’ a show tune?
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:49pm diciassette:

Ain't Misbehavin's a show! (named after the tune)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:57pm doctorjazz:

Been listening in the car, heading to hear some jazz in Brooklyn. Great show!
  7:57pm Listener Gregory:

OK, but that was decades after its initial popularity. BB says it was part of a 20s musical.
  7:58pm Listener Gregory:

“What Is This Thing” is one of the most popular songs adopted by jazz musicians.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:59pm WR:

Ain't Misbehaving originally was in a show called Connie's Hot Chocolates (as per the label on the record) which ran for 219 performances from June 20, 1929, to December 14, 1929 as per the Wikipedia page.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:59pm diciassette:

Well that's been cleared up, Hot Chocolates!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:01pm diciassette:

Right now I'm trying to figure out if fresh Mozzarella's better than ice cream
  8:05pm Listener Gregory:

Thanks, @WR!
Avatar 🎭 8:09pm Listener Gregory:

Sometimes I'm Happy.
Actually, that's an exaggeration.
  8:10pm Dean:

Burrata might be superior to both.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:11pm diciassette:

Ice cream is really in trouble!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:12pm WR:

For 20s fans, Jan Turkenburg did an episode yesterday of all songs recorded in or associated with 1922.
Avatar 🎭 8:16pm Listener Gregory:

Where's That Rainbow is a follow-up to Where's That Rainy Day, but it wasn't as popular.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:20pm WR:

@Listener Gregory, that comment evoked a chuckle here but accompanied with head turning side to side.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm northguineahills:

the benefits of being quarantined is being able to listen to Bronwyn!
Avatar 🎭 8:22pm Listener Gregory:

@WR, I wouldn't take my comment to the bank, if you know what I mean.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:24pm WR:

NGH! Being comfortably quarantined is becoming more and more attractive as a reasonable live goal.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:25pm doctorjazz:

I've cream always rules!
Gotta run, fun show, thanks Bronwyn, laters all!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:25pm diciassette:

Ahoy doctorjazz
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:26pm WR:

Laters Doc. Looking forward to you report on the world beyond the WFMU comment playlists.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:26pm doctorjazz:

Off to The Vision Festival (or part of it, anyway).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:27pm northguineahills:

very jealous, drjazz!
Avatar 🎭 8:27pm Listener Gregory:

@doctorj, wow! Have a great time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:28pm northguineahills:

Frank Black, any relation to Black Francis? ;p
Avatar 🎭 8:29pm Listener Gregory:

@ngh, we can only assume they are the same person.
  8:46pm Listener Gregory:

My wife and I are jitterbugging to this one!
  8:47pm Listener Gregory:

Correction: I am informed that I live alone, in the dark. But still, it was a happy tune.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:52pm WR:

Don't know these individual tunes but according to what was written in the playlist, Non-Stop Dancing had lyrics by P.G. Wodehouse. Didn't hear vocal. will check from the archive, always looking for new to me material from P.G. Wodehouse.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm northguineahills:

@WR: curious....
  8:53pm Listener Gregory:

I don’t think that performance had a lyric.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:56pm diciassette:

WR, I just got to Something New/Fresh recently, and I consider myself lucky to have a whole lotta Wodehouse left to do.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:59pm diciassette:

Thanks Bronwyn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm northguineahills:

Thanks, Bronwyn!
Avatar 🎭 9:01pm Listener Gregory:

The Ray Charles version of Makin' Whoopie is the best modern one, IMHO.
Thanks a zillion, Bronwyn! Have a good weekend.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:02pm Bronwyn Bishop:

thank YOU darlings
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:02pm WR:

Wait! Bronwyn took the lyrics credit out of the playlist.

diciassette, I honestly need to reassess what I've read and not read. A long long time ago had a couple of friends who were fans and pulled me in, but I've been a lapsed reader during this century.

Thank you Bronwyn! Many thanks for the new and old memories.

Listener Gregory, I like to have a version of Makin' Whoopie for all occasions, Ray Charles is at to the top of this list for sure.
