Catamount Community Radio - October 25, 2015

Another Sunday morning, another radio show. The tires screech, and we're under way. Jazz, accordions, shenanigans.

Blossom Dearie sang "Tea for Two." Talk about internal rhymes:

I'm discontented with homes that I've rented
So I have invented my own.
Darling, this place is lovely oasis
Where life's weary taste is unknown.

We heard Joe DeFrancesco play "Never Can Say Goodbye," and later the original Jackson 5 version. When I get some time on my hands, and on other body parts, I'm going to write out a two-part harmony chart.

We wrestled the airwaves away from the electric guitars, and the accordion player in Benny Goodman's quintet took over, at least briefly. And then Adrian Belew, Jimmy Page and Lightnin' Hopkins' electric guitars snatched the airwaves back.

"Here's to the losers":

Here's to those who drink their dinners when that lady doesn't show
To the girl who'll wait for kisses underneath that mistletoe
To the lonely summer lovers when the leaves begin to fall
Here's to the losers, bless them all

"Down with Love":

Down with love
the flowers and rice and shoes

Down with love
the root of all midnight blues

Down with things
that give you that well-known pain

Take that moon wrap it in cellophane

I played hip hop for the first time in ages, A Tribe Called Quest doing "Excursions." One of my favorite hip hop things, and probably the best incorporation of jazz into hip hop.

Back in the days when I was a teenager
Before I had status and before I had a pager
You could find the Abstract listening to hip hop
My pops used to say, it reminded him of be-bop
I said, well daddy, don't you know that things go in cycles
The way that Bobby Brown is just ampin' like Michael
