Bye Bye Blackbird

Music by Ray Henderson

t is considered a popular standard and was first recorded by Sam Lanin's Dance Orchestra in March 1926,[1followed by Nick Lucas and Gene Austin the same year. It was the number 16 song of 1926 according to Pop Culture Madness. In 1982, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) posthumously awarded John Coltrane a "Best Jazz Solo Performance" Grammy for the work on his album Bye Bye Blackbird.[3] Recordings of the song often include only the chorus; the verses are far less known

The song was copied by Charlie and His Orchestra during World War II as part of Joseph Goebbels' propaganda campaign. The lyrics were changed to reflect the German political rhetoric of the time and were intended to demoralize the Allied forces. The tune was sung in English and aimed at United States and British troops, as well as British citizens. It was not permitted to play the song in Nazi Germany because the Nazi leadership forbade "degenerate" styles of music such as jazz. Segregationists opposed to the American Civil Rights Movement, notably at the Selma to Montgomery marches, played the song over loudspeakers as a taunt.

Two former Beatles have each recorded the song: Ringo Starr for his 1970 album Sentimental Journey, and Paul McCartney for his 2012 album Kisses on the Bottom. Both men have commented that the song was one of many "standards" that they grew up singing with their families. McCartney also noted in the CD booklet for Kisses On The Bottom that he and John Lennon had liked the song so much that they had intended to record a Beatles version of it. This raises the question of whether the very young Beatles had actually performed it on stage.

Buffalo Bills : The Buffalo Bills : 00  2 CDs

Buffalo Bills : The Buffalo Bills

The Bills bubbled to the top of the public consciousness during their star turn in the "Music Man," as the members of the River City School Board who sing "Lida Rose" (a moment in barbershop history that would introduce many of us novices to the style). In fact, though, they continued to live long and prosper way beyond that. As Columbia recording artists, they produced many albums (some with accompaniment), the highlights of which are compiled on these two CD's produced by Brian Beck. Digitally re-mastered to bring the quality to modern standards (though several tracks from their very earliest recording efforts couldn't be repaired 100%, but heck, it's part of the charm), the Bills' sound is startlingly robust for a group that won 50 years ago! Significant credit for this must be given to the arrangements of Walter Latzko, who began an eight-album association with the quartet in 1951; his impact on barbershop singing in general can hardly be overstated. The Bills brought those arrangements to life, embodying yearning and romance ("I'd Love To Live In Loveland," "Your Eyes Have Told Me So," "If You Were The Only Girl"), as well as broad tomfoolery and brisk cheer, during romps such as "Toot Toot Tootsie," "Dardanella" and "With Plenty Of Money And You." The longevity of their success may also be due in part to the smooth musicality of their approach and the warmth of their tone; though not breaking any sound barriers technically by today's standards, they don't need to. Released as part of the AIC Masterworks series to coincide with the 50th Annual Society Convention in Kansas City, this CD set is a great value.

Songlist: Hard Hearted Hannah, Birth Of The Blues, Alexander's Ragtime Band, Dardanella, Toot Toot Tootsie, My Honey's Lovin' Arms, Your Eyes Have Told Me So, If You Were The Only Girl, Rose of The Rio Grande, My Baby Just Cares For Me, A Cup of Coffee, A Sandwhich and You, I'd Love to Live in Loveland, Emaline, The Girl That I Marry, If I Could Be With You, With Plenty of Money and You, Goofus, They Didn't Believe Me, As Time Goes By, Walkin' With My Honey, Fit As A Fiddle , Bye Bye Blackbird, Why Do I Love You, Happy Days Are Here Again, Shut The Door, I'm A Ding Dong Daddy From Dumas, Sam, You Made The Pants Too Long, Josephine, Please Don't Lean On The Bell, I Love A Piano, The Preacher and The Bear, and more

Whiffenpoofs : Whiffs in Space!

As one of the nation's oldest and most acclaimed collegiate a cappella groups the Whiffenpoofs have, during their 99 years of existence, sung all over the world. With their 100 year anniversary approaching the group decided that was not quite enough so now "The Whiffs" have taken off to explore the universe where "in space nobody can hear you sing". This recording reflects their long tradition by performing a selection of more traditional male glee club type songs along with a very healthy mix of contemporary a cappella songs. With such a long and proud tradition the Whiffenpoofs have always been one of the creams of the crop and this year's group more than hold their own on this fine recording. An added bonus is the printed insert which turns into a cool poster.

Songlist: Aj Lucka Lucka, Little Pony, New Hymn, On Broadway, Something Like The Blues, Steppin' Out With My Baby, Stay, Waiting in Vain, Sweet Baby James, Time After Time, Bye Bye Blackbird, Down By The Sally Gardens, Who Loves The Sun, Deep River, Midnight Train To Georgia, The Whiffenpoof Song
