Jazz, blues and nostalgia.

Featuring one of the first vibraphonists from jazz, Red Norvo, who thanked his first name to the colour of his hair and who got into music when he sold his pony at a young age to be able to buy his first marimba. Furthermore a young Sarah Vaughan with the ‘No Smokers Blues’, Wim Sonneveld with heartache, exotic sounds and with a melancholy edge by the prewar tango orchestra of the Uruguayan violinist and bandleader Francisco Canaro, who initially was a factory worker and made his first violin out of an empty oilcan, an edifying song by Ella Fitzgerald, the beautiful trumpet/flugelhorn player Art Farmer, and if time permits also Glen Gray’s vivid band.
