The Palace of Nostalgia
Jazz, blues and nostalgia, by Sjaak Roodenburg.
With pianist and entertainer Dave Frishberg, who shows how ingenious he is as a lyricist in the beautiful self-mockery of ‘I was ready’.
Also, vocal group The Four Knights, Eartha Kitt in the beguiling ‘I wantcha around’, Fellini music by Nicola Piovani, Bobby Vinton in ‘Over the mountain’, and the same song by rhythm & blues duo Johnnie & Joe.
Plus: Nat King Cole with June Christy during a legendary session in 1946 with The Metronome All-Stars, also featuring Coleman Hawkins and Charlie Shavers.
Cool jazz by Allen Eager & the Be-Bop Boys, and by Gerry Mulligan.
And special attention for Dorus (Tom Manders) who would have turned 100 years old today and who can be heard with Mister Cor Steyn, and also with the Ramblers.
