Saturday Matinee – Cyriak & the Four Seasons, Trombone Shorty, TUOOGB & Ted Yoder

In 2007 Cyriak captured the essence of FV & the FS.

An amazing 13 year old Trombone Shorty played with Wynton Marsalis in 2000 and almost blew a cheek. Great stuff.

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain does a lot of amusing covers, but this one is worth the listen: Jelly Roll Morton‘s recording of King Oliver‘s Dr. Jazz Stomp (1926).

This ethereal version of Tears For Fears‘ 1985 hit by Ted Yoder on hammer dulcimer makes me want to bang pots and pans, but I like it.

That’s a wrap. Be back tomorrow and we’ll mess around some more.

  1. “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” is one of my favorite eighties tunes. That was a pretty cool version on that hammer dulcimer. I wonder what it would sound like with Roland Orzabal dubbed in doing vocals…..
