Somewhat Apprehensive Hot Links

Nola, “The Piano Artistry of Jonathan Edwards” (1957). Pianist, arranger, composer, and conductor Paul Weston was the husband of vocalist Jo Stafford. The talented duo performed for friends as a cheap lounge act and eventually recorded several albums as Jonathan & Darlene Edwards. They were awesome.

Felix Arndt recorded his composition Nola in 1916.

The Fabulous Thunderbirds cover T-Bone Walker‘s The Hustle Is On (1950). Not sure of the date or location.

Saturday Matinee – HM Royal Marine Band, Kapua+Tatofi+Maoli, Redbone & Billy Preston

Saturday, 5 September 2020 by

Post Horn GalopThe Bands of HM Royal Marines. Amazing post horn fanfare duel.

Hawaiians Kaipo Kapua, Josh Tatofi and Nu’u Maoli. This medley should be named “See A Minor, Effin’ G.” Those vocals are tight.

Redbone had a nice run in the 70s, Witch Queen of New Orleans being one of my favorites for the swamp-rock sound. Very underrated band IMO, even if they did wander into the pop playpen occasionally. “Come and Get Your Love” (1974) was an earful of soul.

Billy Preston sported one of the greatest ‘fros in the business, and wrote one of the best instrumental jams ever – Outta Space. This version is from 1987.

Have a great holiday weekend, have some fun despite what the scolds say, and we’ll do more stuff tomorrow.
