The Palace of Nostalgia
Jazz, blues and nostalgia, by Sjaak Roodenburg.
In today’s episode of ‘The Palace’ we go hunting for treasures in the music history. We have the virtuoso scatting qualities of Ella Fitzgerald performing together with Duke Ellington, the intimate singing style of nightclub star Dorothy Dandridge, also called the ‘black Marilyn Monroe’, who led a tragic life, and from Italy of days gone by you can listen to Ernesto Bonino and Silvana Fioresi.
We play quite some jazz today: Ray Brown and the Gene Krupa Sextet (‘Don’t take your love from me’), Helen Humes singing with the band of Harry James, the melancholic music by The Beau Hunks Saxophone Soctette and a live performance by trumpetist trumpetist Clark Terry in Hamburg (‘Jazzhouse Blues’).
And then we also play Walter Brown (’New Confessin’ the blues’), Louis Prima, also performing on the trumpet in ‘Let’s have a jubilee’, The Andrews Sisters and The Carter Family.
And we end this programme with the American banjo player Earl Scruggs performing ‘Earl’s Breakdown’, Frans Halsema, Louis Jordan (‘Baby it’s cold outside’), Eden Ahbez and singer songwriter Silvio Caldas.
To put it shortly, we have again a programme full of nostalgia today.
