Fimicolous Hot Links

Marie, The Four Tunes (1953) The Four Tunes originated from The Brown Dots, a quartet started in New York City by Ivory “Deek” Watson  after he split from the Ink Spots in late 1944. Marie was written by Irving Berlin and first recorded by Nat Shilkret & the RCA Victor Orchestra (as The Troubadors) in 1928.

Saturday Matinee – Compact Living, Andrea Motis & Joan Chamorro, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, and Die Häder Bänd w/ Linda Krieg

The tenants’ reviews are interesting [via].

Andrea Motis & Joan Chamorro.

Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings did a great cover of Gregg Allman’s Midnight Rider (even though it’s a commercial). Sharon Jones succumbed to pancreatic cancer in 2016 at the age of 60.

Acclaimed German blues group Die Häder Bänd covers Memphis Minnie. Can’t find the lineup, but that’s Linda Krieg is on vocals and harp.

Don’t know what happened, but I lost a day this week and missed the .Gif Friday Post. Maybe it’s because I got mask-shamed by a dwarf. Again.

Meanwhile have a great weekend and we’ll go on a link binge tomorrow.

New Year’s Dayyum Saturday Matinee – Psy, Glenn Crytzer and his Syncopators, Carl Verheyen & The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards

New Year’s Rockin’ Eve in Times Square NYE 2013. Yeah. Psy did that.
Gangnam Style was the first-ever video on the Utoobage to surpass 1 billion views.

New Year’s Blues
Glenn Crytzer and his Syncopators do the Jazz Age thang with

Some killer riffs in Carl Verheyen‘s New Year’s Day.

Here’s something a bit more traditional, and if your brain done got all swolled  up from last night’s festivities, maybe just an .mp3 will do:

Auld Lang Syne, Royal Scots Dragoon Guards 2010

Wishing all of you a healthy and prosperous New Year.
As for 2021, let’s just not do that again.

Saturday Matinee Christmas – Jason D. Williams, The Petersens, and Leon Redbone w/ Ken Peplowski & Dr. John

Jason D. Williams is a madman on the ivories, and the video was posted on the Utoobage just a few days ago.

The PetersensSleigh Ride [2:31] is a fun take on one of my favorites.

“Listen to how perfect this is…
The Doctor, Leon, and the heir to Benny Goodman…”

Leon Redbone, Dr. John and Ken Peplowski make a great trio, and Leon spelled backwards is, well, you know.

Have a great pre-holiday weekend, be back here tomorrow for some last minute shopping.

Saturday Matinee – Andrey Bakhurin, Haruka Kikuchi /w Stephen Walker & Michael Nesmith

Just rediscovered this 2008 Russian compilation of animations done with Post-It Notes (by Andrey Bakhurin).

“Welcome to ‘Trombone Talk’ and today’s guest is Stephen Walker (I call him Steve). He is one of my old friend since I’ve been here, we used to hang around at the YUKI Izakaya on Frenchmen Street (they closed down in October 2016), and yes, great Trombone player.”

Haruka Kikuchi has earned the title of Queen of the Tailgate Trombone.

One of the prettiest songs ever written.
R.I.P. Michael Nesmith.

Hope y’all have a great weekend and we’ll be here all day tomorrow.

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.

Saturday Matinee – Avner the Eccentric, Khruangbin & Raskahuele Estridente

That’s some class clowning. While street performing in Paris,  Avner Eisenberg (aka Avner the Eccentric) was once arrested for buffoonery in public.

Space surf funk jazz mixed with world music = Khruangbin.
The name is Thai for “aeroplane,” and they make their recordings in a barn in  Burton, Texas (pop. 300). There’s more about them here than on their cool website.

Formed in 2004, L.A.’s Raskahuele Estridente is sort of a latino version of Fishbone, and I like their style.  Their song topics include socio-political / immigration issues mixed in with fun stuff.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend, fight for the leftovers, and we’ll see you back here tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – The Two Man Gentlemen Band, Old Dominion & Lil’ Ed and The Blues Imperials

Andy Bean & Fuller Condon, aka The Two Man Gentlemen Band, have a fancy beer with some Slim & Slam style speed jazz.

Old Dominion are out of Nashville with roots in  Virginia, hence the  name.
[h/t Octo].

Lil’ Ed and The Blues Imperials are killer.
Lil’ Ed Wiiliams (vocals, slide guitar), Ed’s half-brother James “Pookie” Young (bass), guitarist Mike Garrett (guitar) and drummer Kelly Littleton (drums) have been jamming for over 30 years. Lil’ Ed & Pookie learned from their uncle,  J. B. Hutto.

Thanksgiving comes just a little earlier every year and now it’s just days away. Have a great weekend, we’ll figure out the menu tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Pathé Luxury, Leon Redbone, Tuba Skinny, Kelly Finnigan & The Atonements

From Wiki:
The Pathé Brothers of France went into the photographic business in 1896. In the early 1900s, Pathé became the world’s largest film equipment and production company, as well as a major producer of phonograph records. In 1908, Pathé invented the newsreel that was shown in cinemas before a feature film.
[The future of the past found here.]

Leon Redbone could scat-sing better than almost anyone, and there’s proof with his cover of Tommy McClennan’s Bottle Up And Go (aka Step It Up And Go recorded by Blind Boy Fuller and many others). If someone in the audience pulled out a camera to take his photo, when the flash went off, he’d stop the song, jump for his camera and take a shot of them. He’d wait as the Polaroid image developed, (“Hmmm. Not a bad likeness”) and pick up the song right where he left it. He kept those photos, too.

Tuba Skinny plays Blind Boy Fuller‘s Untrue Blues.

Kelly Finnigan & The Atonements resurrect the ghost of Otis Redding. Great soul R&B.

Tomorrow is only two days from yesterday, so we’ll see you back here then. Have a great  weekend and stuff.

 

Saturday Matinee – The Ides of March, Lucky Chops & GA-20

“This is really a monster song; no matter which dial you punch on that radio, you’ll hear this one.”
I don’t know about punching dials, but The Ides of March helped bring the horns back into rock with Vehicle (1970).

Lucky you. It’s Pizza Day via Lucky Chops.

Nice cover of Mel London‘s Cut You A-Loose.
GA-20 came onto my radar relatively recently, and they definitely got the sound.

Looks like it’s gonna be a nice weekend despite what everyone says. See you back here tomorrow.
