Today would have been my mother's 86th birthday. It's the first I've spent without her. So crank it, Little Danny!

Doug, I will raise a glass to your mother.

I'll join you in raising that glass, Scraps. Doug: Blessings and praise upon her memory. Love to you.

My mother's taste in music was fairly abysmal. She did love Sweet Honey in the Rock, however.

Thanks Melinda, and hello!

Celebrate moms. Mine, approaching 90, turned me on to Billie Holiday, Rachmaninov, and Burt Bacharach. Otherwise, her taste flounders pretty much. For instance, I used to play old Rod Stewart records on my crappy turntable at home. "Turn that down!," she'd demand. Fast forward a few decades and it's, "Isn't that Rod Stewart a wonderful performer?!"

@Dean ha! Rod wears everyone down. I'm holding strong tho

Just came back from a jazz quintet concert at the performing arts school across the street from where I work, and am back at my desk. Monk, Shearing...man, like, those kids were swinging like a rusty gate, dad.

I like Tonight I'm Yours.

That's awesome MrF - "rusty" can be a good and bad thing of course but definitely applies to some school jazz bands

Also, anyone care to spell Ege Bamyasi for me phonetically so I don't totally embarrass myself?

I've always just said egg-eh bah-məyahsee but in truth i have no idea

Dean:

Happy to oblige.

oh-WAH ta-GOO sigh-AM

MrFab:

Gave me hope for the future.

As for "Ege Bamyasi" I've always mentally pronounced it 'edgy bam-yas-ee' but have no idea if that's correct. Or if there even IS a correct pronunciation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm
Little Danny:

Okay, thanks all, I'm heartened that no one really knows how to pronounce it. I'll just go with my eh-jay bomb-yasi

Oh this is nice! I did a Summertime songtacular a couple of years ago, but didn't have this version: wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm
Little Danny:

You got a lotta o' my fave versions in there Doug! But I have some additional biscuits up my sleeve - got a major thing for "Summertime" here

In my archaeology days I camped for a summer in the National Forests of Utah and it has forever been thought of as the Summer of Our Discount Tent, which it was

Nathan Davis is an under-adored treasure. He was on the faculty at the Univ. of Pittsburgh for around 40 years. Retired a few years back. What a swinging genius.

yep! quite a resume Davis!

I doubt I would stay if Joe Cocker essayed a take of Summertime

MrFab:

I'm not usually too interested in the personnel unless it's someone really notable...tho of course that's a judgment call.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15pm
Little Danny:

Oof, yeah, Joe Cocker. Rough stuff
Avatar 11:16pm
Scraps:

Probably Mandy Patinkin would result in one less person in the room, also.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:16pm
Little Danny:

Thanks for the input MrF and Scraps!
Avatar 11:18pm
Scraps:

I guess that means (for me) Summertime would not benefit with a Histrionic approach.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20pm
coelacanth∅:

i just listened to Joe Cocker yesterday; his great versions of "the letter", "feelin' alright" and "delta lady".
now if a version of summertime (a song i also truly Love) came on by pretty much any currently popular pop or rnb singer, i'd be outa here.
...that said, i agree Joe's probably wouldn't be good; but i'd give it a chance.
Avatar 11:21pm
Scraps:

Also Whitney/Mariah melisma-laden approach, no.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21pm
Little Danny:

Vocal histrionics rarely do much for me. I guess Yma Sumac being the obvious exception.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22pm
coelacanth∅:

...i also think his version of "with a little help from me friends" from the woodstock album easily rivals the original.
...still, yeh, generally not a fan - of him or "histrionics" in general.
Avatar 11:24pm
Scraps:

coelacanth, cocker's The Letter makes me shudder.

Cheers!

(Love Yma Sumac. She pushes the envelope so far she emerges on the other side.) (Really, I don't know why I love Yma.)

coelacanth∅:

that's why Peggy Lee is so very high in my mind, at least during her prime...she sang simple and pure and right on target.

-Scraps! ha, i love it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26pm
Little Danny:

Ahhhh Peggy Lee
Avatar 11:26pm
Scraps:

I agree completely re Lee

MrFab:

To me there's a distinction between show-offy, and the nuts who just go for it, throwing themselves into a song with all the passion they can muster: Yma, Nina Hagen, Lux Interior...ever heard Puerto Rico's utterly bonkers La Lupe?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29pm
coelacanth∅:

- of course my opinion may have something to do with that i heard Cocker's versions of all the songs i mentioned before ever hearing other versions. (except "feelin' alright", which was 3 dog night AND rare earth's version.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:31pm
coelacanth∅:

MrFab- absolutely. i think that's why i don't mind Cocker so much, because i think he falls into your latter catagory.
Avatar 11:35pm
Scraps:

He goes for it, and collossally misses it.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39pm

nah. well not here anyway. i can't stand most of what i've heard i just really like a few songs... enough that i'd always give him a chance...but i cannot listen to a Joe Cocker album. no.
