The Palace of Nostalgia

Jazz, blues and nostalgia, by Sjaak Roodenburg.

With folk hero Joan Baez, Serge Gainsbourg with an autumnal mix of jazz and chanson in ‘Black trombone’, the Pipkins’ only hit (about a duet between a pianola and a metronome) and from the bebop era: bassist/entertainer Chubby Jackson with ‘Lemon Drop’.

‘All by myself’ by Irving Berlin is exactly one hundred years old; interpretations by Ella Fitzgerald and Bobby Darin.

Furthermore: mild swing by the Modern Jazz Quartet, from the ‘roaring twenties’ Johnny Hamp with dance number ‘Black Bottom’ and from the thirties Don Redman in ‘Shakin’ the African’, so you know it’s going to be hot.

Another hypnotic composition from ‘Koyaanisqatsi’, smooth jazz from the Esther Williams swimming costume film ‘Bathing beauty’ by Harry James. And two singers with Italian roots, Frank Sinatra and Vic Damone in the same song, but totally different.
