Saturday Matinee – Allotria Jazz Band, Fats Waller, Leon Redbone & Captain Beefheart

Saturday, 19 May 2018

Die Allotria Jazzband ist eine Combo, die 1969 in München gegründet wurde und dem traditionellen Jazz verpflichtet ist. [Allotria translates to Monkey Business.] “Wolverine Blues” was written and recorded by Jelly Roll Morton in 1923.

Two decades later, Fats Waller was playing the same style.

Nice lip-sync of a pretty song. According to the UToobage:
“Myra Johnson voiced-over the girl “vocalist” sitting on the piano, who, according to trumpeter Eddie Henderson, is his mother.”

In 1975, over five decades later, Leon Redbone recorded his own version (and this isn’t it. Click the link). Mr. Redbone’s music is meant for eggs and coffee and a side of toast.

That’s a version of Blind Blake‘s recording from 1929.

Captain Beefheart recorded an entirely different song called “Diddy Wah Diddy” that was later covered by The Fabulous Thunderbirds.

Whoa. I just found out that “Diddy Wah Diddy” was written by Willie Dixon and Bo Diddley, and was recorded in 1956.

Now it all makes sense.

Have a great weekend folks and be back here tomorrow for more diddy wah diddy.

Reminds me of the story of the autistic woman who began whistling an unusual tune. Her caregiver asked what the song was. The woman said the birds wrote it and pointed to the crows sitting on the overhead power lines.
