With billows and blasts from choirs and orchesters
Buskers and talkers
Big bands and squawkers,
the Stork Club has retained its qualities of decaying elegance and dwindling significance since the late 1950s.

Options August 30, 2020: BLUE BOSSA BIRTHDAY
Celebrating the birthday of the shamefully under-recognized jazz trumpeter Kenny Dorham, born 96 years ago today. Sweet, earthy, often gentle tones set this jazz great apart from the other greats. He played with Bird and Diz, Bud and Monk, on through modern up-and-comers Joe Henderson, Andrew Hill and Clifford Jordan. A birthday tribute to a first-class composer, mentor, and leader.

Welcome to the Stork Club. It's "the one where the trumpets blare." (quick: what song is that from? No search engines allowed!)

The End of a Love Affair !!
Avatar 11:31am Shang-A-Lang Wolfgang:

DOH! Peter, I didn't see you there! First arrival and winner of our first lyrics quiz of the day. I know a guy named Blair, and I always sing that to him when I see him. He doesn't get it, which somehow makes it funnier.
Avatar 11:31am DJpeterDE:

Wolfgang, do you know anything about that song's composer? I'm not sure i know another song by him.
Avatar 11:32am DJpeterDE:

I'm sure Blair would return the favor if he could, but how many wolfgang song puns are there?
Avatar 11:38am Shang-A-Lang Wolfgang:

I Found "Holiday in Paris," recorded by Frankie Carle: www.discogs.com...
Avatar 11:41am DJpeterDE:

Great detective work! A quick google search turns up... no other versions of that song...
Avatar 11:41am Shang-A-Lang Wolfgang:

For the others, joining this thread, the composer's name is Edward C. (Bud) Redding. I also found a song called "Twelve Good Men and True."

The Village Gate sign still hangs on the corner of the building. "Top of the Gate" is now a chain pharmacy. But the old Gate basement is now the Le Poisson Rouge club.

Is this Passion Flower or Chelsea Bridge? Or are they the same? Or am I totally confused?
Avatar 1:42pm Listener Gregory:

A little extracurricular listening suggests that the songs are quite similar, but (probably) not identical. So, I forgive myself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:45pm Franco Twinkie:

Everybody knows that music sparks inspiration, but sometimes it makes lightning strike. Kenny Dorham has done that for me.
