The Palace of Nostalgia

sat 3 mar 2018 20:00 
Composer: Edith Piaf

Jazz, blues and nostalgia.

 

From the realm of the dead of oblivion comes Dodo Greene. She was the first woman who was allowed to record an album for Blue Note, and it stopped there, despite her fantastic voice, full of soul. Another forgotten celebrity is Anita Cerquetti, the impressive soprano who seemed to follow in the footsteps of Maria Callas, and even replaced her in  ‘Norma’, but shortly thereafter quit. We also have Edith Piaf in a song which was meant for the film ‘Mon Oncle’ by Jacques Tati en where by mistake a text had been written on, the bands of Fletcher Henderson and Glen Gray, the French singer Marcel Mouloudji in een poignant song of Boris Vian, Ella Fitzgerald in a funny failing take, British sunshine from the Crisis years by Sam Browne, pianist Bram Wijnands, fado singer Antonio Zambujo and if we have time left, an ode of Dorus to Mies Bouwman.
