Mood Indigo

Music by Duke Ellington

"Mood Indigo" is a jazz composition and song, with music by Duke Ellington and Barney Bigard with lyrics by Irving Mills. The tune was composed for a radio broadcast in October 1930 and was originally titled "Dreamy Blues." It was "the first tune I ever wrote specially for microphone transmission," Ellington recalled. "The next day wads of mail came in raving about the new tune, so Irving Mills put a lyric to it." Renamed "Mood Indigo," it became a jazz standard.

At the Mid-Winter Convention in Jacksonville, Florida, Fatherly Advice (Tenor Dan Tangarone, Lead Dick Bek, Baritone Bill Thurman and Bass Burt Staffen) won the gold and became the 1996 SPEBSQSA International Senior Champions. FA takes a firm grip on the heartstrings at song one, "I'm Gonna Sit Right Down..." and the gentle tugging goes on until song 27, "We All Fall," is over. There Never was a Gang like theirs, all Dear Hearts and Gentle People with a Shine on Their Shoes, who sang "Heart of My Heart." And they sing it with such sweet harmony, you know it was true.

Four Blazes : Mary Jo : 00  1 CD : 704

Four Blazes : Mary Jo

The Blazes were journeymen musicians, who had played in and around the Chicago club scene since 1940, though they didn't score a national hit until 1952, with "Mary Jo." Written by bassist/singer Tommy Braden, who didn't actually join the Blazes until 1950, it epitomized their blues-influenced jazz sound: walking bass, clean guitar tone, honking sax over blues progressions. However, it was a sound rooted in an earlier era, and was swept away by the tides of rock 'n roll, in spite of the superior musicianship of professionals such as the Blazes. Still, these 24 songs show why the idioms of blues and jazz are universal, and any of them could be performed today. Highlight: an original arrangement of "Mood Indigo," a summer breeze wafting by on a sultry July evening.

Songlist: Mary Jo, Not Any More Tears, Raggedy Ride, Mood Indigo, Perfect Woman, My Great Love Affair, Rug Cutter, Lovin' Man, All Night Long, Never Start Living, Snag The Britches, Please Send Her Back To Me, Night Train, Ella Louise, Stop Boogie Woogie, My Hat's On The Side Of My Head, Perfect Woman, Do The Do, Drunken Blues, She Needs To Be Loved, Women, Women, Did You Ever See A Monkey Play A Fiddle, Done Got Over, Don't Loose You Cool

Orphei Drangar : Caprices with OD Vol 2 : 00  1 CD : Eric Ericson : 5016

Orphei Drangar : Caprices with OD Vol 2

The 1960s saw the beginning of the "Caprice," an annual event that soon gained great popularity. It was a wholly new concert form in Sweden: a mixture of musical styles, everything from serious classical music to jazz and folk music, and as time went on it became more and more of a scenic production with dramatizations, choreography and slapstick humor. An important ingredient was the appearance of one or more mystery guest artists. Over the years, many of Sweden's foremost artists within various genres ahve appeared to suprise the audience, and often have the opportunity to present themselves form a new angle. The development of the Caprice would hardly have been possible without the special conditions that Orphei Drangar has to offer: Eric Ericson's musical versatility and curiosity, not to mention his wide-ranging contacts within Swedish artistic circles; Robert Sund's skill as an arranger, of which this CD provides ample evidence; and his brother Hakan's artistry at the piano, or an equally high calibre in classical music and in jazz.

Songlist: There's no business, White Christmas, Broderna Sund of Music - Variationer over Csardas, Fabodpsalm, Smaka syltan, pastorn, Midzjtnatzskin radznjeff, Rysk visa, Yngve Gamlins sprakkurs, Naturljud i Hagaparken, Vila vid denna kalla, Fjariln vingad syns pa Haga, Gubben ar gammal, Hagakoren, Mood Indigo, Fly me to the moon, The drunken sailor, Hor I O / Nu ar det jul, Det ar en ros utsprungen, O helga natt, Chopin a la suedoise

Western Wind : My Funny Valentine : 00  1 CD

Western Wind : My Funny Valentine

The Western Wind was formed in 1969 and two of the founders are still singing. Perhaps the longevity of the group is due to the fact that their repertoire includes everything except heavy metal.

The works include songs by Rogers and Hart, George Gershwin, Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington, Brian Wilson and John Denver. Though mostly jazz, their classical training comes through on "My Funny Valentine," particularly.
