Some like it hot

20 Comments

Welcome in my music corner: Soul & Jazz and Beyond. Today´s issue we celebrate the 75th birthday of Blue Note Records. The most important record label ever, foundet in 1939! I also would share more tracks by Blue Notes Records. But due to gema-fees matter, the majority of tracks from Blue Notes Records are not available in Germany. Beside the matter, I selected Sidney Bechet, Joe Williams, Donald Byrd and Lee Morgan from Blue Note Records for this mix. And as bonus you can listen to a short but great Swing Mix, from the golden era of Swing.

Then we have new music by Smoove & Turrell in the mix, from their 3rd album, a wonderful new track by Kiko King, we look back with Boogaloo Joe Jones, the Bunny Berigan Orchestra with a wonderful version of “Caravan” from 1937 and many other more. So the Music is served for you!

Have a great whit/pentecost weekend and enjoy the hopefully warm and sunny weather.

Listen, Relax and Enjoy!

Update:
For all Sharon Jones Friends and Fans, I would like to pay your attention on her Live Concert, in May, in Paris. Arte TV recorded the whole live show from Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings. 90 Minutes of soul, funk, energy and fun.

Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings LIVE in Paris/Olympia

Bonus:
Caravan Palace – Lazy Sunday Swing Mix (all you can chill) with The Delta Rhythm Boys, Lionel Hampton, Fats Waller etc.. This is really a sweet and swinging tribute to the music era of the 30s and 50s.

  1. Inzwischen muß ich wohl zugeben, daß ich immer schon warte auf die nächste Überraschung aus der Musikecke. Danke für diese tollen Interpreten. Byrd, Bechet oder Morgan – da geht gleich wieder das Herz auf!😀

    • Ganz herzlichen Dank. Das freut mich, auch das Lob 🙂 Ich versuche Altes und Neues zu verbinden und freue mich, wenn ich rare Songs finde. Ich hätte auch gern einen reinen Jazz-Mix zum Thema 75 Jahre Blue Notes Records gemacht. Aber die Gema😉
      Es ist zeitlose Musik die auch noch in 50 Jahren gehört werden wird.

  2. Big Band and all that Jazz. In highschool, in Tucson, Arizona, I used to listen to a big band station that came over the mountains from San Francisco. Love the old guitar! I miss the vocals in the music of today. They actually sang a song with word’s that could be understood. Love it, even though I am far from being in that time period.

    Enjoy the summer! “The fun of it all !”

    • Summer is still here! Thank you for the comment. For me music has no borders. Because I call my weekly compilations … “and beyond”. The tracks from the Blue Note Label are timeless and will still listen in 50 years. Swing, Jazz has been made a development to Neo-Swing, Retro Soul etc. where different styles will mixed. A couple of weeks ago, I introduced modern big band jazz from Iceland: Samúel Jón Samúelsson Big Band. Soul & Jazz are still alive.
      I will enjoy the summer.
      Have a great weekend.

      • I will go back and check out your Iceland jazz. I have not kept up and rarely hear any new Jazz. No stations for that around here (Denver). Look forward to your new sounds.

        Thanks again.

      • Oh, that´s a pity. I am glad that you like my compilations. Each week, on Saturday afternoon, I am posting a new mix with some bonus material like this week a concert from Sharon Jones or something from other networks like Soundcloud.
        You´re most welcome.
        Have a great weekend.

  3. P.S. Thanks for the post!

    • Oh, another Sharon Jones Fan. Great. She is wonderful and am happy that she has actual the attention and success she definitely deserve. Thank you, Patti for your compliment.
      If you go to the Blue Note Records Site, you can do a virtual journey threw 75 years history.
      Have a great whitsun weekend.

  6. Eine schöne musikalische Inspiration für einen heißen Sommertag.

    • Dankeschön für das Kompliment. Das freut mich. Kommenden Samstag gibt es wieder einen neuen Mix.
