Saturday Matinee – Fireflies, Pete Daily & Red Nichols

Saturday, 5 April 2014

Timelapse of fireflies by Vincent Brady [via].

Pete Daily‘s “Over The Waves” from 1951: Daily on cornet, Burt Johnson trombone, Pud Brown clarinet, Skippy Anderson piano, Len Esterdahl banjo, Bud Hatch tuba and Hugh Allison drums.

Red Nichols & His Five Pennies rocked your grandparents, assuming your grandparents were entirely cool and bitchin’. (Of course they were.)

Have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow for more inanity.

Saturday Matinee – Pete Candoli & Red Nichols & Al Hirt; Scott Biram, B.B. Chung King and Leon Redbone

Saturday, 26 January 2013

Red Nichols, Pete Candoli & Al Hirt playing “Hot Lips.”
If that video wasn’t so entirely bitchin’ we’d never have posted it – Every decent link on the U-Toobage we found had “embedding disabled.” Some anusbrain copyright jerks don’t understand the concept of free advertisement. Let’s move on.

Scott Biram is a one-man ass-kickin’ rock machine.

“Mumbo Jumbo” by B.B. Chung King & The Screaming Buddaheads 2007. The Tail Gators did a song by the same name in 1988.

Here’s some fun etymology: In Japanese American slang, a “Buddahead” used to mean a Japanese American from Hawaii (h/t Osprey 1) and “Mumbo Jumbo” (Mandingo, West African in origin) was a bugbear who appeared at night to resolve marital disputes. Mumbo Jumbo was not nice. He’d beat the crap out of wives who disobeyed their husbands.

Let’s lighten it up a bit. Here’s Leon Redbone, one of the few folks I can think of (besides you, of course) who is welcome at my doorstep any time.

That’s it for this episode of The Saturday Matinee. Have a great weekend and be back tomorrow for more nonsensical oddities.

Saturday Matinee – Leon Russell, Dr. John, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Jimmy Smith; Red Nichols, Pete Candoli & Al Hirt

Saturday, 20 August 2011

That’s Claude Russell Bridges, aka Leon Russell, 1964.

That’s Malcom John Rebennack, Jr., aka Dr. John, playing Stephen Foster‘s “Swanee River Boogie.” Not sure what year this one’s from.

The Squirrel Nut Zippers‘ “Ghost of Stephen Foster” has been posted here before, but I like it.

Bill Doggett‘s “Honky Tonk” by Jimmy Smith is a head-bobber.

Three of the greatest trumpet players of all time: Red Nichols, Pete Candoli and Al Hirt playing “Hot Lips,” ca. 1964.

That’s it for now.  Have a great weekend folks, and be back here tomorrow for more fun.

Saturday Matinee – Xylophone Ad, Joey Ramone, New York Dolls, The Milenberg Joys, Red Nichols

Saturday, 16 April 2011

A wooden ball is set atop a long, wooden structure that might be a xylophone or a marimba, constructed in the middle of the woods. As the ball rolls downward, dropping onto each wooden “key,” it plays a note, and suddenly we are hearing Bach’s Cantata 147, “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring.” .. “We did not add any artificial music at all,” Harano wrote (though they did adjust some levels to “bring out the sound of river and nature”).

Yeah, ultimately it’s a commercial, but it’s still very very cool. [via]

R.I.P. Joey Ramone  (d. 15 April 2001)

The New York Dolls were stuck between classic rock and proto-punk,  but they had that pseudo-tranny stuff going on that turned off a lot of potential fans, at least in my opinion.

[Deleted the video. Screw ‘em since they’ve blocked embedded links.  If they don’t want free advertisement, then they shouldn’t post it on the Utoobage.]

The Katzenjammers. Nice trumpetingness. [h/t to Bunkessa]

So, in place of a cool video of the folks originally posted above, here are The Milenberg Joys. I think they had more talent than that Katzjamband anyway.

Red Nichols & His Five Pennies were awesome in their time.

Speaking of time, I’m out of it. Have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow for more fun.
