John Holiday: Fly me to The Moon

Got any spicy songs you like to introduce us to? Instrumentals? Standards? Experimental ... um ... junk, (sorry I'm kind of prejudiced against...)?

@izzythepush,
I love that version, from beginning to end. Nice to see that young Wayne Shorter.

Here's another great tune from that golden era. Blakey's got Benny Golson on tenor in this quintet. He composed this piece and a number of others that have become classics:

@hightor,
It goes somewhere that sets my spine tingling. I really love Art Blakey. This is another one that does it for me.

@Real Music,
I have a personal set program from a Charlie Byrd performnce somewhere in DC.(probably from the 50's) I got the hand written notes and the sequence . He was apparently not yet into Spanish sounds.

He had some typical Byrd chord sequences listed for some songs like "hnd me down my walkin Cane" and "Besseme Mucho"

I got it in a huge pile of papers and notes from a teacher at Johns Hopkins who died in the last several yers. His family had an auction and apparently none of the boxes of papers qwere even inspected.
Ive got a ton more to go through but Charlie Byrd, one a my favorite jazz guys.

I went to see RUMBLE: THE INDIANS WHO ROCKED THE WORLD last night.

http://rezolutionpictures.com/portfolio_page/rumble/

Absolutely fascinating if you're interested in the origins of jazz/blues/rock/heavy metal/punk.




I stayed up way too late after getting home, watching clips of interviews that didn't make it into the documentary.

tsar - it's at Film Forum right now if you can get out to see it.

The influence of Mildred Bailey on Sinatra and Tony Bennett was news to me. The connection of the phrasing of her Indian background to her jazz phrasing was a revelation.

Great ensemble work in this arrangement. Al Cohn did a lot of arranging for Broadway and TV. The slick ending of this piece sounds as if it could have been played on the Tonight Show.
