Saturday Matinee – Stan Kenton, Miles Davis plays Herbie Hancock & Los Lobos Rocks.

Saturday, 15 November 2014

Stan Kenton‘s version of “Malaguena” was amazing.

Herbie Hancock‘s “Watermelon Man” was an instant jazz classic in 1962, and this 1991 version features Miles Davis. Very cool.

Los Lobos son impresionantes como sus musica retros. Got that?

Have a great weekend peeps, and we’ll have more fun stuff coming up tomorrow. Promise.

 

Saturday Matinee – Some Donnas, La Bamba & Joe’s Garage

Saturday, 6 February 2010

Woof. Yeah, that’s 10cc doing it’s best Zappadoowop attempt with “Donna.” A few days ago, “Brian” reminded me that 10cc sang what I mis-remembered as “I Wanna Be A Bus.” (See this post.)

Here are The Donnas doing their best Ramones impersonation with a puzzling and cheap video.

From The Donnas, we thought we’d find a video of Ritchie Valens singing “Donna,” but no dice. Jump search to “La Bamba” and there’s just garbage and clips of Lou Diamond Phillips limp sinking. So here’s the greatly underrated Los Lobos‘ version of the Mexican traditional song.

Since we started off with a brief reference to Zappa, here’s a double header from a 1980 concert in France. The segue line is perfect.

Be back here tomorrow for some cool stuff.
