The Palace of Nostalgia

Jazz, blues and nostalgia, by Sjaak Roodenburg.

To the moon! The Palace on Saturday 20:00. Exactly fifty years after the first human being set foot on the moon: lunar music & space travel. With Frank Sinatra, the incomparable Hildegarde, who’s singing resembled Greta Garbo’s looks (also known as ‘The First Lady of the Supper Clubs’), the obscure Hammond Septet (with among others Johnny Meijer), exceptional inventor and composer Raymond Scott with his Secret Seven, Dinah Washington (‘Destination Moon’), Harland Leonard & his Rockets, Chet Baker (‘Moonlight becomes you’), Hank Williams (‘Howlin’ at the moon’), vocal groups The Chordettes and The Dinning Sisters, Billie Holiday, Mel Tormé, voice-over artist Ken Nordine (‘Outer Space’), the mysterious Eden Ahbez (‘Full Moon’). In addition: sound from space. A tribute to ‘one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind’.
