It's been out of print for many years. There was a French reissue a few years ago for Columbia Records. It was recorded at Basin Street West in San Francisco in the summer of 1965. It's wonderful. This is a Nat Pierce arrangement of horror solvers, Opus De Funk. It features solos by Nat Pierce who pays tribute to Mary Lou Williams in his piano solo, then Gary Kine on tenor and Bill Chase and Disco Gogovich on trumpets. Opus De Funk, horror solvers tune arranged by Nat Pierce, performed by Woody Hermann in 1965. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

One of the great recordings of the last of the years we've spent together, let me say that, one of the great recordings of the years we've spent together is this one

One of Norman Graham's jam sessions that was called Funky Blues. It was an edited version, the complete performance is much longer. This edited version appeared on the verb album, The Essential Charlie Parker. That was the essential Funky Blues, Charlie Parker and Johnny Hodges, Altos, Ben Webster and Flip Phillips Tenors with Oscar Peterson piano, Barney Kessel guitar, Ray Brown bass, J.C. Heard drums and Funky Blues. This afternoon is our last live afternoon together. One of the great things that happened to me during our time together was becoming best friends with Carol Sloan, who brought so much jazz, so many other artists, and who performed so often and so rewardingly herself in the triangle for so many years. Leonard Feather in his nationally syndicated column from the L.A. Times called Carol Sloan's
new album Love You Madly, the best jazz vocal album of the year last year. It was recorded in 1988 in New York with Richard Rodney Bennett, Arrangements and a wonderful band of Art Farmer, Frugal Horn, Clifford Jordan, Tenor, Kenny Baron piano, Rufus Reed bass, Akira Tana, drums. This music is a tune Billy Holiday recorded years ago called Getting Some Fun Out of Life when we heard Richard Rodney Bennett's arrangement at the session, Franklin Underwood and I kept going, Bet your pretty neck I do, you'll get it. This is Music by Carol Sloan. We're getting some fun out of life, or maybe we do the right thing, and maybe we do the
wrong. Spanish day just winding our way alone, so we're gonna sing, we sing, and we're gonna dance, we dance, you can do your better, and we're getting some fun out of life, woo, we're gonna play, and we're gonna play, we're gonna play in the happy session, we're gonna sing when we live, and we're gonna sing, and we do the right thing. And every one of us sing, a we sing, and every one of us, we dance. We even do your bedding, and we all get things on the phone, out of light.
So, yeah, maybe we do the right thing. Well, yeah, baby, we do the right thing And maybe we do the road Bad at each day just winning our way
So when we want to see, we see And when we want to dance, yeah, we dance You can do your better, we're getting some fun out of life You can do your better, and we all get some fun And I don't know I once had a boy Or should I say, he wants to turn me He showed me his room Isn't it good? Nor would you?
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh He asked me to stay And he told me to sit Anywhere So I looked around And I noticed there wasn't a chance Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh I sat on the road
Butting my time And drinking it for me We talked until two And then he said, it's time for me He told me he worked in the morning And started to live I told him I didn't And crawled off to sleep In the back I was alone This guy had found
So I left fire Isn't it good? Nor would you? Carol Sloan, Richard Rodney Bennett wrote the arrangement Of getting some fun out of life With silos by art farmer and Clifford Jordan And a rhythm section of Kenny Baron Rufus Reid and Akira Tana And Richard Rodney Bennett was the pianist, a company in Carol Sloan In the Paul Montgomery arrangement of Norwegian wood We have so much to be grateful to Paul Montgomery for Including that gorgeous arrangement Norwegian wood sung by Carol Sloan with Richard Rodney Bennett piano The album on contemporary records is Love You Madly by Carol Sloan
17 minutes past two o'clock on WUNC Richard Rodney Bennett has become a great friend of a lot of us in the triangle After Stephen Barefoot introduced us to him at Stevens Also a great friend of Carol Sloan This recording of Richard Rodney Bennett was made in New Zealand In the spring of 1988 released on old records in New Zealand called Lush Life, Richard Rodney Bennett, Silo and Vocal The music was written by Richard and Franklin Underwood With the blossom dairy in mind, when blossom dairy Performs at the ballroom in New York, she always performs Beginzer performances at 6 o'clock And so they wrote this song for her, called Early to Bed Early to bed, early to rise, I greet the dawn but I open my eyes Precious a daisy as somebody said, how do I do it, I'm early to bed
Early to bed, I'm with a lock, I'm on a spree but I'm on me for dark You can go disco and make the dead red I'll take a rain check, I'm early to bed You stoop about him and bore me, Georgia and Justin Jeremy and Jake were the best You stoop, turkey tried and tangle, meringue and mambo But now I need my rest, so it's early to bed Early to rise, I can't hang out with the rest of you guys I ain't got the energy, ain't got the bread And I don't want to wake when I'm ache in my head
I got sweet dreams and sunrise and rise Instead, got to go home and I'm early to bed You stoop about him and mambo You stoop about him and bore me, Georgia and Justin Jeremy and Jake were the best, you stoop, turkey tried and tangle Meringue and mambo, but now I need my rest So it's early to bed, early to rise I can't hang out with the rest of you guys I ain't got the energy, ain't got the bread And I don't want to wake when I'm ache in my head
I got sweet dreams and sunrise, right as instead Got to go home now, I'm early to bed I wish I'd met you when we were 17 Think of how we wasted all those years in between But would we have been wise enough to know how to make a copy
Knowing what we knew of it I wish I'd met you when we were very young Before the land was tasted, before our songs were sung But how could life mean anything? Time has stolen love away, I've never met you
Till today, but would we have been wise enough to know how to make a copy Knowing what we knew of it Love is a grown up game, but all the same Before the land was tasted, before our songs were sung
But how could life mean anything? If time has stolen love away, I've never met you I've never met you Music and words of Richard Rodney Bennett and Franklin Underwood, we heard their song early to bed,
written for blossom dairy, sung and played by Richard Rodney Bennett Richard Rodney Bennett and Franklin Underwood wrote the lyrics for Johnny Mandel's tune, I wish I'd met you and we heard it performed by Lena Horne and Sami Davis Jr. I want you to hear, I want to leave you with, last week Sandra King performed in New York with Mike Renzi at the piano, and last week Mike Renzi and Phil Woods and Carol Sloan were all in the recording studio together, making a new album
for contemporary records for later this year. Mike Renzi and Sandra King were performing together in New York last week, Rex Reed wrote about it in the New York Observer, noted that New York pianist Franklin Underwood and his elite collaborator, Richard Rodney Bennett, wrote a gem called early to bed that Sandra King has been performing. They also noted, Rex Reed also noted that one of the songs Sandra King had come up with was the roundabout. He wrote of it for regal proof that gold can be mined from drawers. There's roundabout from a catastrophic review that starred Betty Davis and featured the collaborative talents of Jerome Robbins, Jules Dassen, George Bauvenstein, Norma Kaye, John Murray Anderson. It is one of Vernon Duke's most charming tunes with literate lyrics by Ogden Nash. Rex Reed added on all of these songs, and many more, the voice is sultry and deluxe. Sandra King wraps you in mink, and with all due apologies to animal rights activists, you go home warm.
Sandra King is recorded too little in this country. She has two albums on audio file. A more recent one of songs by the late Jimmy Van Huesen in duets with Richard Rodney Bennett. And this record, which was recorded at the Corcoran Gallery in Washington in 1982 for NPR's Jazz Alive. My friend Rob Gordon is now manager of the station in Springfield, Illinois. And I were responsible for springing the tapes, liberating the tapes in Joel Seagull's words from NPR, so that they could be published on this audio file, album Sandra King, in a concert of Vernon Duke. She's accompanied by the late Pat Smise, the wonderful pianist. And in this 1982 performance, she sings the Vernon Duke Ogden Nash song, Roundabout, with both of its lovely verses, the voice of Sandra King. When you're the boy in the face, there's too much time, there's too much space. There's too much future, too much blood.
And this old little, and the world so blessed. Only think of yourself as an immortal creature. But you're just a cartoon, between a double creature. You go round the vouch, and round the vouch, and round the vouch, and round about you go. For that old man, who's warned about the game. Then it's ring-round, and swing-round. You're partner as you go.
But the more they change, the more they are the same. When the dancing is done. The big big glows, it plays the same word to you. You go round the vouch, and round the vouch, and round about once more. As you break in each day again, to soar, on your way again. It's round about once more. I remember the name of the child again, as we played in the seventh soul. I'd go seek, and blind, and round, and round, and round.
The older I go, the better I know. But lovers are kids that play. And I am forever the last one in. When life has run away. You go round the vouch, and round about once more. As you break in each day again, to soar, on your way again. It's round about once more.
With Sandra King alive at the Corcoran Gallery in Washington in 1982. And Vernon Duke's round about. Lyrics by Ogden Nash. It's on audio file records. Sandra King in a concert of Vernon Duke. 27 minutes before 3 o'clock on WUNC. Also appearing in New York week before last, it was Marilyn May. A rare New York appearance, we hear much too little of this wonderful singer. Rex Reed, writing in the New York observer in the same column, noted that the ads for Marilyn May's appearances at Michael's pub where he found her mesmerizing. The ads quoted Elvis Gerald as calling her the greatest white chick singer in the world.
An exaggeration perhaps, but don't laugh, writes Rex Reed. Eva knows her onions, and Miss May can make you cry. Rex Reed wrote of pure out of this world jazz, performed impeccably with style and range and class. I want you to hear some music of Marilyn May, who was from Kansas City, and still has connections there, although she's been living in Houston for many years. Marilyn May first from her first album from 1965 on RCA, with an arrangement by many album, and lead Elto saxophonist Phil Woods. Play on the symbol, the timble, the lyre, play with appropriate passion, fashion, songs of delight and delicious desire. Come where the soul will be loving is waiting, where the rose and the jasmine mingle.
While I tell him the moon is for mating, and his sin to be single. Let peacocks and monkeys in purple zones show him the way to my bridal chamber. Then get you gone till the moon of my moonings, after the night of my night. Tis the night of my night. This is the night of my night. Play on the symbol, the timble, the lyre, the lyre, the lyre, the lyre. All my love, all my love. It only takes a moment for your eyes to meet. And then your heart knows, in a moment you will never be alone again.
For instance, what his arms felt sure and strong. He takes a moment to beloved a whole life known. I've heard it said, that love must grow. That to be sure, you must be slow. I saw you smile, and now I know. I listen to just my heart.
That smile made me trust my heart when you held me for an instant. But your arms felt safe and strong. It only takes a moment to beloved a whole life known. And that is all that loves about, and will recall when time runs out, that it only took a moment to be loved. A whole life known.
One of our great vocal artists, Marilyn May, we heard her sing, it only takes a moment from Hevo Davi. She had hit singles of Hevo Davi in cabaret in the 60s. That performance was from an album she recorded herself for double M records, using her daughters address in Kansas City. Double M productions released this album of Marilyn May singing all of the score for Hevo Davi. With that gorgeous performance, it only takes a moment accompanied by her late pianist, Mark Franklin. And that was recorded in 1985. Recorded 20 years earlier, we heard music from Marilyn May's first album for a major label, Meet Marvelous Marilyn May for RCA Victor records.
The arrangement of Night of My Nights was by Manny album and members of the studio orchestra included JJ Johnson, Trombone, Mel Lewis, drums, and Phil Woods, also. 20 minutes before 3 o'clock on W-U-N-C, here's Bob Brookmeyer. I'll see you next time. I'll see you next time. Thank you.
