Saturday Matinee – Chuck Barris & Eugene Patton, Count Basie & America Paz

Saturday, 25 March 2017

Yeah, we lost another famous Chuck this week. Here’s Chuck Barris on The Gong Show featuring the late Eugene Patton, aka, Gene Gene The Dancing Machine. (If you thought I was going to post vids of The Unknown Comic, you’re mistaken, but here’s a link instead.)

GGTDM’s themesong was always Count Basie‘s 1938 hit “Jumpin’ At The Woodside,” so let’s go there. Here’s Basie’s Orchestra playing their 1937 hit “One O’Clock Jump” six years later in the movie Reveille with Beverly.

That 1943 Basie lineup likely included Buck Clayton, Harry “Sweets” Edison, Snooky Young, trumpet; Dicky Wells, trombone; Earle Warren, Buddy Tate, Don Byas, Jack Washington, saxes; Freddie Green, guitar; Jo Jones, drums. Not sure who’s on bass.

This Funk Bass Slapfest is awesome, and the girl’s smacking a six-string. I’m guessing that this how Julliard students settle their differences and go busking at the same time.

OH WAIT! THAT’S AMERICA PAZ!

Very impressive, Ms. America.

Have a great weekend, folks. We’ll see you tomorrow.

Important Stuff:

Just read Chris Kyle‘s book “American Sniper” and I highly recommend it. Here are some interviews.

I read Marcus Luttrell‘s “Lone Survivor” – twice.

Johnny Mead‘s got a story from WWII.

Former Soviet citizen Vladimir Jaffe politely attempts to educate students on the truth about life under communism. (The girl actually believes that the millions of people murdered by The Red Terror was “an accident.”) Their ignorance scares me.

Not Important Stuff:

Here’s what happens when you mess with a dead whale carcass.

This is what you get when you google Holy Crap.

Hungry? Eat this.

Perhaps you’d like a tin sandwich instead?
