Evening Sam!
Hi James & silent ones!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Sam Segal:

LJW, geezerette, a pleasure as always. Glad we could embark on this extended journey together.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:16pm listener james from westwood:

Yes indeed! My bedtime usually costs me a single-seating listen to the whole show!
Avatar 7:22pm coelacanth:

greetings Sam and fearless adventurers
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm Sam Segal:

Ahoy, coelacanth! Welcome a-horse!
Avatar 7:26pm geezerette:

This is a mighty big saddle,why it's like those big city stretch limos!
Avatar 7:28pm coelacanth:

uh, does someone have a horse they can lend me?
Avatar 7:29pm geezerette:

Looks like we're all on the same horse tonight coel!
Avatar 7:32pm coelacanth:

okay. i'll behave.
...is there a bar on this stretch-limo horse?
Avatar 7:48pm geezerette:

There's a canteen in one of the saddle bags. Not sure what's in it.
Some limes too.

I'm at the back,sketching the landscape. Probably won't be talking much,too busy looking, I mean listening!

Diggin' this Frank B!

Heya, Melinda. Welcome!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm Sam Segal:

@LJW: takes some serious guts to sample Aretha, but I think Frank pulls it off
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04pm melinda:

I liked the Chain of Fools too.

Terrific show!

thanks g. it's cactus juice. 'don't know if i'd call it tequila.

I like this perky background music.
Avatar 8:17pm coelacanth:

haha! i was whistling along to it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm Sam Segal:

One of my favorite pieces of bed music...a delightful little morsel from the Italian Music Scene library.
Avatar 8:31pm geezerette:

Loving this set.

Thanks, G!
Avatar 8:54pm geezerette:

Can Barry White be far behind?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm Sam Segal:

We'll be narrowly avoiding Mr. White, G.
Avatar 8:55pm geezerette:

Bettye LaVette!!!
Avatar 8:58pm geezerette:

...thank god Sam! (Escape from Barry White... )
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Sam Segal:

Incidentally, if I'm not mistaken, "Narrowly Avoiding Mr. White" is the name of a never-produced Gary Marshall project from the early '80s.

Thanks for the disco treats.

...I think - I Hate Disco...buuut - Donna Summer - that's gotta be the sexiest music ever recorded...& somebody dissing Barry White ?? Man - he owns that thing he do - why you wanna dis Barry ??...& so on...
Avatar 9:19pm geezerette:

Don't know RevRab,White's voice was incredible but those lyrics...no accounting for what makes you laugh! Totally respect it working for someone else. He certainly sold a lot of records.
Avatar 9:20pm geezerette:

...not my box of bling.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:22pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...or - maybe I just hate Disco...but nevermind...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30pm Sam Segal:

Hope ya'll are enjoying this little Sondheim revue
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30pm listener james from westwood:

Send in ... the clowns
Those laffy, daffy clowns
Send in those soulful and doleful
Schmaltz by the bowlful, clowns
(Sorry, this "Simpsons" fan can't help himself)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30pm melinda:

I love hearing unexpected show tunes on WFMU, like Send in the Clowns.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:31pm listener james from westwood:

Cannot go wrong with Sondheim!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:31pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Interesting sung by an actor rather than supersinger.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32pm melinda:

Agree, Rabbit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32pm listener james from westwood:

@melinda: Agreed. Jonesy sneaks in the odd show tune now and again. Monica has been a friend to B'way too. There was a running joke about a showtune ban @ WFMU in the 90s, but I think that was smoke.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34pm melinda:

I know I've heard other show tunes here before but maybe because Send in the Clowns was a hit it seemed less likely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:34pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

The Great American Songbook - yerknow - if yer into Songwriting or Singers - or Jazz Standards - even if not Theater - there it is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44pm listener james from westwood:

Oh! Charlie! Charlie's played the odd show tune. In both senses.
Avatar 9:48pm coelacanth:

i'm sorry Sam, but i listened to 1/2 a Curtis Mayfield album while you played show tunes! (but then -maybe serving me right - i missed boredoms.)
Avatar 9:50pm geezerette:

I'm a sucker for Sondheim.
Avatar 9:52pm coelacanth:

i don't know Sondheim as such, but i do like a good "send in the clowns".
  9:55pm Dean:

Despite an abiding distaste for show tunes, I'm also a sucker for Sondheim and for some renditions of show tunes. I utterly love "Send in the Clowns." Jarrett solo and with his trio delivers it transcendentally. It's Sondheim's music I adore over his lyrics. But then some of the lyrics in Sweeney Todd are really effective.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56pm Sam Segal:

No hard feelings, @Coelacanth. For many years, I found show tunes way to schmaltzy. Like @Rev was saying, it was through my love of standards that I started to dig in a little bit more and find the aching beauty beneath the glitz.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:58pm Sam Segal:

Also, welcome @Dean!
  9:59pm Dean:

A *pleasure* to be here!
Avatar 10:03pm coelacanth:

i think it's the singing that i usually can't stand. (?)
...i passionately Love the (original) soundtrack to "hair", and i think it's because the usually technically poor singing is so passionate. (the music being excellent doesn't hurt either) ....like they're singing it because they mean it - not because they're acting.
Avatar 10:04pm coelacanth:

(...but maybe i'm imagining things.)
  10:05pm Dean:

Jesus, coelacanth, the Hair s/t was among the first LPs I bought, c.1969, and I never until 10:03 (your comment) considered it "show tunes." Damn, you're right.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:05pm melinda:

I love Hair too. And JC Superstar. Maybe because they were the only musicals I knew as a child.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06pm melinda:

Then again, I think we had West Side Story in the house too but it didn't have the same appeal.
Avatar 10:15pm geezerette:

What's great about American Song book tunes is their extraordinary plasticity. They can be arranged,interpreted infinitely and each version can hit you with a different meaning,feeling. Jerome Kern and Cole Porter still sound contemporary,can be very minimal. Lots of Standards are from shows hardly anyone remembers now. Preaching to the choir!
Avatar 10:15pm geezerette:

and hi Dean!
  10:16pm Dean:

For sure, geezerette. Example among gazillions: Kiri Te Kanawa's recital of Kern. Bliss!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm melinda:

Yeah, it's always interesting to learn the show origin of a given standard.
Avatar 10:18pm coelacanth:

true,g. - there are certainly Cole Porter songs i like that were penned for musicals.
Avatar 10:21pm geezerette:

It's great to hear Jazz artists launch from those songs and completely surprise you.

Agree about Hair! Love the original cast album. Rado & Ragni captured so many things at once,incredible.
Avatar 10:24pm geezerette:

Dean, yes,bliss!
Avatar 10:32pm coelacanth:

-and MacDermot did a brilliant job with the music for "hair". i only wish it was produced like a "rock" act.
Avatar 10:35pm geezerette:

But it could be,and that would make it new.
Avatar 10:38pm coelacanth:

yeah, i haven't tried yet. my record was too scratchy so i got the cd. it sounds quite the same.
i always meant to re-record it onto another cd with some eq to give it more bass.
Avatar 10:39pm coelacanth:

i'm digging the core to the core.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40pm melinda:

I saw a local theater production of Hair when I was in high school. It was pretty exciting. They got naked and everything.
Avatar 10:41pm coelacanth:

sweet! i don't know why i've never gone to one, when i've known of a few.
Avatar 10:42pm coelacanth:

...i remember when my father brought the hair st album home. my mother panicked a little, but he prevailed and we learned lots of new words! i, and my sister close to my age could sing to the entire album by the time i was about 8...but i didn't know the meaning of some of what i was mimicking.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:44pm Sam Segal:

When I was 11-12, I wanted nothing more than to be a "hippie." I grew my hair out and started affecting the vocal ticks of a burnout. After seeing an episode of Cheers where Woody is supposed to be in a production of Hair, I demanded my parents take me next time it came to town. As luck would have it, I got to see a pretty professional production when it came to Minneapolis a few months later. The nude scene flipped my lid.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:45pm melinda:

Yes, 'Sodomy' was full of new words.
  10:46pm Dean:

Hair was an education. A classmate of mine, fourth or fifth grade, went with his mom to the production in LA at the Shubert. I bought the album and learned the lyrics. We looked up certain words in the dictionary. (Exactly, Melinda!) We learned them. Degree granted.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:46pm melinda:

Sam that's a great story. I missed that Cheers episode, though, which is too bad because it sounds hilarious.
Avatar 10:46pm coelacanth:

oh,man! i'm envious of both of you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm melinda:

I misheard some of the words.
Avatar 10:48pm coelacanth:

yeh, melinda...bit by bit my older brother would tell me what most of those words meant. i remember being a little shocked! (though maybe intrigued!)
Avatar 10:49pm coelacanth:

Dean, i think my mother hid the dictionary around that time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51pm melinda:

I think it's better to know the meaning of the words, otherwise you might end up innocently singing them in front of the wrong people.
Avatar 10:53pm coelacanth:

haha,yeah! well by the time i was 12 half my friends were forbidden by their parents to hang out with me anyway!
  11:12pm Dean:

Well, there's Sondheim and there's Nikhil Banerjee. Call it a show tune, I don't care. I love this man's music.
Avatar 11:16pm geezerette:

It's gorgeous. Peaceful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19pm melinda:

Time to hit the sack. Great show!
Avatar 11:20pm coelacanth:
