Acapella Doo Wop

Doo-wop: a distinctly American musical form that flourished in the 1950's, emerging from urban centers such as New York and Chicago. It's vital statistics? Groups comprised of four to five members, bass/baritone/tenor (or a first and second tenor) and lead, singing in three or four part harmony; frequent use of falsetto; predominance of "nonsense syllables"; dynamic bass parts; instrumentation subservient to vocals or nonexistent; simple but heavy backbeats and lyrical themes that espouse love and longing for "the one." It's pedigree? The vocal harmony groups of the 1940's, such as the Ink Spots and the Mills Bros., rhythm and blues, which incorporated elements of jazz and swing; country and gospel. Each of these individual cells would develop into the matrix called rock and roll, of which doo-wop is considered a part.

The "Rock 'n Roll Jubilee Ball," presented by legendary dee jay Alan Freed in 1955, featured acts the Clovers, Drifters, Harptones and Moonglows, a spectrum of talent that was representative as any of the musical trends of this dynamic period. A bevy of independent record labels sprung up to support and popularize the new music, including Chess, Vee Jay, King, Jubilee, Atlantic, Gee, Laurie and Dootone, and the personalities behind these often one room operations were practically as notorious as the artists themselves: George Goldner, Herb Abramson, Bess Berman, Syd Nathan.

As for the artists, they started young and often burned out early, and frequently realized meager rewards save the excitement of seeing their names on a theater marquee. With few exceptions, the acts were not adequately financed, and though technology was advancing at an unheard of pace (which provided new outlets and opportunity in the form of radio and television), the recording process was generally primitive, with groups rushed in and out of the studio in assembly line fashion. Indeed, that is why so many of the groups of this period sang "acapella": it was simply cheaper, as the producers didn't need to pay for a band! By the way, "acapella" as a moniker (as distinct from the Italian term "a cappella," which, strictly defined, means "in the church style") evolved after a conversation between Donn Fileti, Leo Rogers (of Bruce Records) and Wayne Stierle, according to Wayne in his liner notes for the Moonglows "Glowing in Acapella." However it's described or whatever it's called, doo-wop in general and acapella doo-wop in particular represents a golden age in American vocal harmony, with a loyal following that remains vital to this day.

Alley Cats : Nine Lives

Review: When we first saw the Alley Cats it was giving a "showcase concert" on a small school stage at the A Cappella Summit, singing 4 or 5 songs. What was clear was that these four young guys simply performed sweeter, better-arranged, funnier, more together Doo-Wop than anyone we had ever heard. "9 Lives" (9 "live" performances, get it?) proves that they are even more so now. Their song selection includes our very favorites: "Blue Moon," "Duke of Earl," "Come Go With Me," "Little Darlin'," "La Bamba," "Little Bitty Pretty One," "The Book of Love," "Barbara Ann," plus 3 bonus tracks, including "The Lion Sleeps Tonight," "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" and "Rock N Roll is Here to Stay." The DVD includes cool footage from their appearances on Arsenio Hall and other shows, and begins with live songs from an outdoor California festival, then follows the guys on their ride to Vegas for very hot performances and outtakes there. Alley Cat fans, you of course will buy this DVD because you know that the Cats are "America's Premier Doo-Wop Group." Those unfamiliar with the group, you of course will want to see how good you have to be to bill yourself as "America's Premier Doo-Wop Group," and you won't be disappointed. We love these guys, and "9 Lives" is a treat from beginning to end!

Songlist: A Cappella, Come Go With Me, The Duke Of Earl, Little Bitty Pretty One, Book Of Love, Little Darlin, La Bamba / Twist And Shout, Barbara Ann, Blue Moon, The Lion Sleeps Tonight, Smoke Gets In Your Eyes, Rock 'N Roll Is Here To Stay

Forever Plaid : Forever Plaid

Review: Based upon the stage production of the same name, this DVD is equal parts silly schtick and a musically adept and professional parody of the close harmony groups of the 1950's - Freshmen, Hi-Lo's and the like. Romantic themes dominate-"Three Coins In A Fountain, "Love Is A Many Splendored Thing," 'Cry,"-with a "Caribbean Medley" and "Scotland The Brave" (a homily to Plaid) for yukks. The style is unapologetically sentimental and deliberately cliched, but will be good fun for those who are familiar with the colloquialisms typical of the period. A good portion of the dialogue is included to introduce the songs and explain the plot.

Songlist: Three Coins In The Fountain, Gotta' Be This Or That/ Undecided, Moments To Remember, Crazy 'Bout Ya' Baby, No Not Much, Perfida, Cry, Sixteen Tons/ Chain Gang, A Tribute to Mr. C/ SIng to Me Mr. C/ Dream Along with Me/ Catch a Falling Star, Caribbean Plaid/ Kingston Market/ Jamaica Farewell/ Matilda, Matilda, Heart and Soul, Lady of Spain, Scotland the Brave, Shangri-La/ Rags to Riches, Love Is A Many/ Splendored Thing, Once Upon a Time, Deux Ex Plaid , The End

Los Zafiros : Music From the Edge of Time

Review: Music, History and emotion fuel this dynamic, award-winning film tribute from producer-director Lorenzo DeStefano. For those whose lives they deeply touched, Los Zafiros are legends. Often Referred to as The Beatles of 1960s Cuba, The Sapphires were a Cuban musical phenomenon molded by their time and place. Bes described as world music before there was world music, they caused a sensation in Havana and beyond into the early 1970s with their brilliant mix of American-inspired doo-wop touched with Afro-Cuban rhythms, salsa, son and other traditional Latin Forms.

Songlist: Opening, Cuando Yo Lo Conoci, Cuba and America- 1950's and '60s, Interviews, Two Roads to Home, Survivors and Casualties, Caya Hueso Street Interviews, Reflections of Families and Friends, Naming Los Zafiros, Return to Egrem Studios, Los Zafiros in Europe, Miguel Reunites With Chino's Brother, Los Nuevos Zafiros, Coming Apart, Egrem Studios "Mis Sentimientos", Galban and Cancio to Cementerio Cristobal Colon, "They Will Never Be Forgotten", Los Zafiros, End Credits

Various Artists : The Doo Wop Sound

Review: This beautifully-done DVD is like a History Channel documentary on the Doo-Wop phenomenon of the 1950s and 60s, starting with its streetcorner roots in cities like NYC, Philadelphia, Baltimore and SF, and progressing into the recording and performance mainstream of American culture. Along the way we hear fascinating interviews with people like Ronnie (I) Italiano, DJs Don K. King and Bobby Jay, Louis Lymon (Frankie's Brother and a star in his own right), Pookie Hudson of the Spaniels (who wrote "Goodnight, Sweetheart" to his first love, not to write a hit), Earl "Speedo" Carroll of the Cadillacs, and Arlene Smith of the Chantels (who talks about being 12 years old when they scored their first hit with "Maybe"). We hear about and see vintage footage of the first Doo-Wop sex symbol, Sonny Till, The Ravens singing what arguably is the first Doo-Wop song, "Count Every Star," and the 1940s roots groups, The Deep River Boys, the butter-smooth Mills Bros. and SF's Golden Gate Quartet. We hear why and how a cappella, nonsense syllables and silly lyrics were used by poor young singers to create a full sound and "get noticed," the bombshell effect on the recording industry of Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers' "Why Do Fools Fall In Love" ... I could rave on and on here, but I'll just give you the Chapter headings to give you a taste of what's here: "The Early Years," "Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers," "Romance and Innocence," "The Urban Streets," "The Girl Groups," "The Tour Bus" (which goes into the racism the mostly Northern groups encountered in the South), "The Business of Doo-Wop," "The Cadillacs" and "The End of An Era." Lots of great vintage footage here, of singers, cities, recording studios, live performances with star-studded playbills in lights-this is a sumptuous feast for the a cappella, R&B and pop music fan, as well as anyone who is interested in the amazing cultural history of the 50s and 60s. Enough said--"The Doo-Wop Sound" is a winner from beginning to end!

Songlist: The Early Years, Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers, Romance and Innocence, The Urban Streets, The Girl Groups, The Tour Bus, The Business of Doo Wop, The Cadillacs, The End of an Era

Various Arrangers : Do It Doo Wop

Review: As one of the earliest forms of a cappella singing every group should know at least some of the doo wop classics. "Under The Boardwalk", the 1964 hit by the Drifters, is one of the all time a cappella hits and should be in every group's repertoire. Here's a super doo-wop arrangement of Ben E King's 1961 "Stand By Me" and " In The Still Of The Night", a doo wop gem that's fun to sing. "Come Go With Me" - Put a special soloist out front with this doo-wop hit of the '50s!

Songlist: Come Go With Me, Under the Boardwalk, In the Still of the Nite, Stand By Me

Various Arrangers : Doo Wop Barbershop

Review: What a fascinating blend of two great uniquely American styles of vocal harmony! 'Silhouettes' was a hit single by the Rays in 1957. Tom Gentry's arrangement is an audience pleaser that can incorporate visual enhancements such as sunglasses, leather jackets, and choreography. Be sure to let the 'doo-wop' swing feeling be natural and unrushed, when the audience can understand the humor of the story on the text 'you're on the wrong block.' Feel free to experiment with the smoothness of the bass line by having the section sing on an open vowel such as 'du' rather than 'dm.' "Under the Boardwalk." has become one of the most recognized popular songs ever recorded. Allow the syncopated rhythms to sound free and agile while maintaining a god connected flow to the singing. These songs will add a cool touch of nostalgia to your repertoire and are surefire audience pleasers.

Songlist: Under the Boardwalk, Silhouettes, Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight, Crazy Little Thing Called Love

Various Arrangers : Jersey Boys - Songs of the Four Seasons

Review: One of the most successful vocal harmony groups of the 60's were the Four Seasons and their songs are as iconic as ever thanks in part to the hit Broadway show Jersey Boys. "Walk Like a Man" was one of the songs that propelled the Four Seasons to stardom and a showstopper in Jersey Boys that chronicles their rags-to-riches story, your men's group will bring down the house with the soaring falsetto over solid rock and roll harmonies. With soaring falsetto and smooth harmonies, "Sherry" was a #1 hit in 1962 and will make your guys the stars of the show. Audiences will love hearing these songs and watch out of they might sing along with the choir!!

Songlist: Walk Like a Man, Sherry, Bye Bye Baby (Baby Goodbye), Jersey Boys (Choral Highlights), Let's Hang On

Various Arrangers : Men's Doo-wop

Review: Doo wop a cappella has influenced so much of today's sound and here we present some cool arrangements of some of the all-time classics. Here is Ed Lojeski rendition of The Nylons hit "Silhouettes" which has an irresistible energy and drive that make this an audience favorite! "Under The Boardwalk", the 1964 classic hit by the Drifters, should be in every group's repertoire as should the 1962 Gene Chandler hit "Duke of Earl". Would you believe the '50s hit "Book of Love" was inspired by a toothpaste commercial? It's a terrific male parody on "how to keep your girl" put in an a cappella "street-style" setting and the Boyz 11 Men version of "Under The Boardwalk" is bound to be a crowd pleaser!

Songlist: Under the Boardwalk, Book of Love, Duke of Earl, In The Still of the Nite, Silhouettes

"Speedoo" - Show some attitude with this 1956 pop hit by the Cadillacs! This uptempo classic from the golden age of doo-wop makes a perfect selection for some fancy footwork!

Audrey Snyder : Up on the Roof

Review: Here is a song that celebrates the idea of having a place of your own, where you can go to be alone to relax, contemplate and dream. First recorded by The Drifters in 1962 and then again in 1979 in a soulful version by James Taylor, this arrangement is especially crafted for younger choirs. Available separately: 3-Part Mixed, 2-Part, VoiceTrax CD. Duration: ca. 3:00.

Sheet Music Available: 3-Part Mixed,   2-Part

As Performed by: James Taylor

Roger Emerson : Blue Moon

Review: Younger and developing mixed and treble choirs will enjoy performing this jazz inflected doo-wop song from the 1930s, but made popular in 1961 by the vocal group the Marcels. A perfect selection for enhancing blend and articulation and a quick learn!

Sheet Music Available: SAB,   2-Part
