Tommy Ramone, drummer for the Ramones passed away. So we paid tribute with 'Blitzkrieg Bop' and 'I Want to be Sedated.' From memory:
They're piled in the back seat
They're generating steam heat
What they want, I don't know
They're all revved up and ready to go.
Johnny Winter passed away. I played his cover of Partchman's Farm. Horace Silver died. Frankly, I didn't realize he was still alive. He could swing.
I played the Mingus Big Band's "Moanin'" as intermission music at the top of the 11:00 hour today. That is pure heavy metal. The bari sax is killer.
It looks like Dandy wins the cover contest.
1. What tune is Vince Guaraldi covering? - Moon River. ("It's wider than a mile / and I'm crossing it in style")
2. What tune is Jim Campilongo playing on the electric guitar? - "When You Wish Upon a Star" (I guess I have a celestial theme going...)
3. Whose tune is Esperanza Spalding covering? - Michael Jackson's "I Can't Help It."
4. What's the tune that John Scofield is playing on his guitar? - Charlie Rich's "When We Get Behind Closed Doors."
Two by John Zorn, two by Bill Frisell, and some fine Corinthian leather.
