Saturday Matinee – Origins of the Moon Walk, Sugar Chile Robinson, Ola Belle & Zane Campbell

Saturday, 10 February 2018

The origins of the Moon Walk.

Sugar Chile Robinson was a 7 year old blues & boogie woogie piano prodigy. I wondered what happened to him and found this. Here he is in 2007 at the age of 69:

Robinson is still performing.

Let’s move on to something completely different.

I’d heard of neither Ola Belle nor Zane Campbell until today but both were and are awesome.

Have a great weekend, folks. There’s more in the hopper.


Saturday Matinee – Lindy Hop Showdown, The Wrecking Crew, Tommy Tedesco & The Memphis Group

Saturday, 16 December 2017

Pure awesome. Girl in the stripes gets my vote [via].

The Wrecking Crew” recorded some killer stuff, and you’ve likely never heard of them because they weren’t named  “The Wrecking Crew” until 1990. Their peak years were 1962-73 when they worked with Phil Spector. They weren’t a solid unit as the musicians came and went, but the music WAS solid, no matter who was sitting in at the time.

Tommy Tedesco, one of the greatest session musicians ever, was a member of the post-defacto-named Wrecking Crew. Tedesco was one of those rare people who, if told something was a musical instrument, could play it flawlessly.

Now about “The Memphis Group.” Steve Cropper, Duck Dunn, Al Jackson & Booker Jones provided the backup for some amazing recording artists, but you already knew that.

Have a great weekend, folks and we’ll see what happens tomorrow.
