Saturday Matinee – Sushi, Percy, Grappelli, AatW, Bob Wills

I kinda suspected this. Not. [via Cynical-C]

Percy Faith’s “Theme From A Summer Place” was one of my favorites for reasons I really can’t explain; I just liked it, especially when the french horns kicked in. [via The Chawed Rosin]

Here’s another song that’s way up in my favorites. “Blue Moon” was composed by Rogers and Hart in 1934, and Stéphane Grappelli treated it with respect.

Asleep at the Wheel paid homage to Bob Wills & His Texas Playboys. [via Huck Funn]

Don’t know who Bob Wills was? Here’s a video to show you what y’all have been missing. Meanwhile, have a great Independence Day weekend, folks, and don’t forget to put your flag out tomorrow.

    Guess I’ll have to dig up some Hot Club of France after seeing Stephane. But then that could lead to Eddie Lang and Joe Venuti…which could lead to Bing Crosby and the Rhythm Boys…Paul Whiteman…Bix Beiderbecke. I’ll be lost in the ’20s for days.

    Hope you had a great 4th.

    C Mon– Gimme a main order of Benny Moten with some Red Nickles and His Five Pennies on the side, and we’re talkin’ hot sauce.
