The Palace of Nostalgia
Jazz, blues and nostalgia
Musical time travel in The Palace. Starting with lyrically brilliant ‘Mairzy Doats’ by The Pied Pipers followed by the no less wonderful singing millionaire’s wife Mrs. Miller (‘Monday, Monday’, ’There goes my everything’).
Shorty Rogers & his Giants with a pillar of ‘cool jazz’ (‘Popo’), singer/pianist Mose Allison (‘Do nothin’ till you hear from me’), Sy Oliver’s short-lived orchestra (’Scotty’)
Frans Halsema (’Tango der liefde’), Pee Wee King with his Golden West Cowboys and sweet-voiced singer Redd Stewart, June Christy with ’Skyliner’ and from blues: guitarist/singer Lonnie Johnson (‘Another night to cry’)
Francisco Canaro y su Orquesta Tipica, music from the Marlon Brando movie ’The Wild One’, an inventive Mel Torme and the Mel-Tones (’That’s where I come in’)
A national ‘hidden treasure’: Powderblue (Marjolein van der Klauw in ‘Doin’ Elvis’), vocal group The King Sisters, Doris Day with John Denver, Jack Teagarden with the Paul Whiteman band (’The Darktown strutters ball’)
