Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from February 12, 2021 Options

Bronwyn Bishop's avatar View Bronwyn Bishop's profile Options

Musical theater from off the beaten path. Obscure and unusual show tunes from within the canon and without, flops, failures, and the newest works from up-and-coming artists—plus tried-and-true hits. Also, occasional appearances from songs that are not show tunes (but only if they go really well with show tunes).

Hi Gregory!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:00pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I'm sorry that I'm about to interrupt Bonnie "Prince" Billy. Oh boy do I love Bonnie "Prince" Billy. Where's his musical!?!?!
Avatar 🎭 7:00pm Listener Gregory:

That's a great question.
Avatar 🎭 7:02pm Listener Gregory:

This man should be impeached!

MAKE EGYPT GREAT AGAIN!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:03pm WR:

Hello Bronwyn, Listener Gregory and other listeners
Avatar 🎭 7:03pm Roberto:

Time to put the acid on the jazz hands (as opposed to the needle on the record).
Avatar 7:04pm Andrew Hollywood:

this guy is singing about me
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Mitch Leigh goes DISCO!!!! To discooooo the impossible discoooooo
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:10pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi Henry, WR, Roberto and Andrew!!!
Avatar 🎭 7:10pm Roberto:

Oh my. The Impossible Dream was arguably my late father-in-law's favorite show tune, but I don't think he would have gone for this one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I wonder how the critic John Simon, who hated Mitch Leigh so much he shat on him in reviews of other people's musicals, felt about this
Avatar 🎭 7:14pm Roberto:

I thought you were going to say he hated him so much that he literally shat on him.
Avatar 🎭 7:14pm Listener Gregory:

Why not go to hear a musical to hear exactly the same music they were playing in the clubs or on the radio (disco piece)?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Roberto: I wouldn't put anything past the late Mr. Simon, who was legendarily cruel, although he was nice to me when I tried to get him to review a very tiny play I did press for
Avatar 🎭 7:18pm Roberto:

I think he reviewed my dad once. We had the book with the review in it (it was called Acid Test) so I'm guessing it was a positive one.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:18pm Webhamster Henry:

This is a fascinating cover!
Avatar 🎭 7:19pm Listener Gregory:

Is this an Italian group?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Gregory: Sarava wasn't actually a disco musical, but all musicals in 1979 got disco covers, even Sweeney Todd
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:20pm Webhamster Henry:

Ereway inhay ethey OneyMay!
Avatar 🎭 7:21pm Listener Gregory:

@BB, I have been spared that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I can't find any info on Onderoad- I found that cover in a random Spotify playlist- but I do believe they are Italian based on the album title
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:22pm doctorjazz:

Hi all!
Avatar 🎭 7:25pm Listener Gregory:

The label is Italian, but the singer's accent was unidentifiable (by me).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm Bronwyn Bishop:

hi doctorjazz!!!
Avatar 🎭 7:30pm Listener Gregory:

Hey, @doctorj!
Onderoad sure is obscure. They seem to have some albums on Apple Music, but can't discover anything about the group. Also searching for them on Amazon returns results for "underpad" instead. Not recommended.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:30pm Webhamster Henry:

Ooh 110 in the Shade! The score for this is realllly good.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:36pm Webhamster Henry:

More out of place Gamelanean instruments.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:39pm Webhamster Henry:

Now we're getting to UrineTown! We like to sing this tune!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Bronwyn Bishop:

In case you're wondering why we BOTH have scratchy phone-voices...it's because I used this call recorder app thing
Avatar 🎭 7:44pm Listener Gregory:

Let’s all send Bronwyn questions to ask in her pre-recorded interview.
Avatar 🎭 7:45pm Listener Gregory:

“If you were a tree, what tree would you be?”
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Damn, I was going to ask him that but I forgot
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Webhamster Henry:

Doing the Full Lipton™ might be a bit much.
Avatar 7:48pm βrian:

A Sycamore, for sure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm Bronwyn Bishop:

did lipton ask questions like that??
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Webhamster Henry:

I wasn't angel-ing shows anymore, but I totally would have put money into Urinetown.
Avatar 🎭 7:54pm Listener Gregory:

Boy, the course of true theater ne’er ran smooth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:56pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I found this story inspiring as a person trying to make a small musical
Avatar 🎭 8:05pm Listener Gregory:

I’m imagining some of the conversations... “I’d like to use your synagogue for a play we’re putting on? It’s called Urinetown?”
(Door slam!)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:10pm Webhamster Henry:

I have that Hal Leonard Urinetown book.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

It's sad you had such a hard time getting this guy to answer questions.

(this was a lot of fun!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi Lizzie!! Glad you liked the interview :D
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:23pm WR:

great interview! i don't know how much editing you did but it seemed like you just had to press his start button and away he went. LOL.
Avatar 🎭 8:28pm Listener Gregory:

“Something’s Coming” is truly great.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:30pm Webhamster Henry:

They got some lucky breaks in the Festival and production department! And it is popular with theatre groups; my (ex) sister-in-law directed a college production.
Avatar 🎭 8:32pm Listener Gregory:

So I detect Bill Evan’s?? Not sure.
Avatar 🎭 8:33pm Listener Gregory:

*Evans (Damn autocorrect!)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:33pm Webhamster Henry:

This Ed Ames cover recalls the time when people used to just go to a show on a date after work, and then go to a club and hear a combo like this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I wanna go on a date like that when things reopen
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:35pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I remember feeling really adult when I was 22 and my then-boyfriend and I went to the Village Vanguard and drank martinis (I hate martinis)
  8:35pm doctorjazz:

George Cables, fine player (played with Art Pepper, and his own bands, of course).
Avatar 🎭 8:36pm Listener Gregory:

George Cables! Great pianist. I don’t think of him as an Evans disciple, but the slow parts here are spot-on Evan’s style. Not the rhythmic interludes though.
Avatar 🎭 8:37pm Listener Gregory:

@Doctorj, I actually heard him with Dexter Gordon. That was an experience I’ll never get over.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:39pm WR:

Bronwyn, again, the interview was excellent. you obviously made him feel comfortable and open to share all that happened to get him to Broadway.
  8:40pm doctorjazz:

never saw Dex, but did get to see Cables. Great show!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:40pm Webhamster Henry:

We had the script for So Long 174th St. - I think my father saw a backer's audition, but... no.
Avatar 8:44pm Andrew Hollywood:

This is my first time listening. Cool show Bronwyn :)
Avatar 🎭 8:47pm Listener Gregory:

This is a Duke Ellington song?? Who knew?
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:49pm Webhamster Henry:

Bronwyn is roaming the audience with a Craig 3" reel-to-reel in her oversized handbag.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:51pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@WR: aww thanks!! I'm glad it went well since it was my first interview of a famous person ever
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:52pm Webhamster Henry:

Robert Clary was a new Face of '52 with a bunch of other new faces.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Andrew: Thanks so much, glad you stopped by :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: I wish I was illicitly recording a Broadway flop in 1970 right now
Avatar 🎭 8:53pm Listener Gregory:

OK, I’m familiar w the musical Pouse-Café (that is, I know it exists). BB, there is an official recording out for it now, on a very small label. It’s a reconstruction of the original.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:53pm doctorjazz:

Great show, Bronwyn, thanks!
Avatar 🎭 8:54pm Listener Gregory:

Wonderful show, Bronwyn. I learned things. And great interview!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:55pm Webhamster Henry:

For every Disco Cover, there's a Swinger Cover. There's also usually Andre Previn/Shelly Manne cover.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:55pm Webhamster Henry:

This was great funnnn!
Avatar 🎭 8:56pm Listener Gregory:

You said Cliff Richard; I heard Keith Richards and became very confused.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:56pm WR:

Truth WHH!

Thank you Bronwyn!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Barry McGuire: The proto-Harvey Fierstein
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Bronwyn Bishop:

thank you for listening darlings!!!
Avatar 🎭 8:59pm Listener Gregory:

I was a Burl Ives fan as a child. I’d like to have those records now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Bronwyn Bishop:

i only ever knew burl for his christmas tunes until i recently heard him doing a folk tune and was blown away by his voice unaccompanied by jingle bells
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Webhamster Henry:

Somehow chimney sweeps dancing with banjos instead of brooms come to mind.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:01pm Webhamster Henry:

G'Night every one! Can't go to Joe Allen's after the show.
