Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from November 19, 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).

Is tonight about sauces, or windmills?
Avatar 6:58pm HyperDose:

I was told there would be a buffet
Avatar 🎭 6:59pm TonyR:

Don't leave Hollanderaise sauce out in the buffet.
Avatar 🎭 7:00pm TonyR:

Finally, a tribute to dinner theatre?
Avatar 🎭 7:01pm TonyR:

Whoops. Played songs not getting added to list.
Avatar 🎭 7:01pm TonyR:

Sh, there we go. Streamswitch!!!
Avatar 🎭 7:02pm TonyR:

Music levels super low. I fear for first mic break.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:02pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi TonyR and HyperDose!!! I was just making a little reference to the line "And tell them to Hollanderize it/For some other dame" in "Take Back Your Mink" from "Guys and Dolls"
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:02pm Webhamster Henry:

Hi Theater goers! Bronwyn is playing one of my theme songs.
Avatar 🎭 7:02pm Listener Gregory:

I thought about drinking too much a little while ago, but then I realized, "I need to keep my head clear for Acid Jazz Hands." Let's see if that helps.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:03pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Tony: is that better?
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:03pm Webhamster Henry:

The real original cast of Alice... was in 1984.
Avatar 🎭 7:03pm TonyR:

That did pump up the volume. Thanks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:03pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: I have only just discovered this song and I LOVE IT. I'm gonna play it for potential composer/collaborators and say "just make it all sound like this"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Gregory: AJH as temperance tool!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:04pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: I can't find an original cast recording anywhere, I could only find this, I guess there wasn't one
Avatar 🎭 7:04pm TonyR:

I'm imbibing for the first time in weeks.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:05pm Webhamster Henry:

I remember seeing it at the investor's preview ... so I invested in it. So much energy coming off the stage!
Avatar 🎭 7:05pm TonyR:

Henry's a producah?
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:06pm Webhamster Henry:

Yeah, even I don't have a cast album or an audience bootleg!
Avatar 🎭 7:06pm Listener Gregory:

Your voice is not amazingly louder than the music!!! Great work.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:06pm Webhamster Henry:

I was a theatical angel for a while back in the day.
Avatar 🎭 7:07pm TonyR:

The minute you walked in the joint....
Avatar 7:09pm HyperDose:

@TonyR Want some gin to go with that? 😉
Avatar 🎭 7:11pm Listener Gregory:

I am amazingly enjoying the medley.
Avatar 7:12pm Andrew Hollywood:

Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:14pm doctorjazz:

Hello Bronwyn and you all out there!
Avatar 🎭 7:14pm TonyR:

Wha-WHAT? Did someone say "gin"?
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:14pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

Am I listening to Dave the Spaz?? Or am I at Grandma's house? lol!
Avatar 🎭 7:14pm TonyR:

Bingo on Broadway
Avatar 🎭 7:16pm TonyR:

"Prevue". Is that French or something?
Avatar 🎭 7:16pm Listener Gregory:

Playlist listing is lagging far behind the songs, though. I'm guessing this is Fred Astaire.
Of course, it came up just after I typed the comment!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:17pm doctorjazz:

Busy Board... I feel like I'm at Big Planet Noise...
Avatar 🎭 7:17pm TonyR:

A couple of shitkickin' songs - about marryin' a gambin' bride, for one - were online at 7. Couldn;'t figure out what show they would have been from, but I got back to my seat from the bar too early.
Avatar 🎭 7:18pm TonyR:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Gregory: I have to put all the info in manually and sometimes it takes a while lol
Avatar 🎭 7:19pm TonyR:

*gamblin' bride.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Lizzie: It's always grandma's house at Acid Jazz Hands ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@doctorjazz: I love to see a party in the comments!!!
Avatar 🎭 7:20pm TonyR:

My grandma only had Firestone Christmas albums.
Avatar 7:20pm HyperDose:

Academy award nominated woohoo!
Avatar 🎭 7:23pm Listener Gregory:

Interesting to hear the composer sing this. But nothing will ever replace the love I have for Ray Charles's version. Nothing.
Avatar 🎭 7:25pm TonyR:

Stealth Barbra content on that Arlen rekkid.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:25pm doctorjazz:

Ella did a great version too (partial to all Ella's songbooks)
Avatar 🎭 7:27pm Listener Gregory:

Have to say I am surprised that Fred Waring did not ruin that Cole Porter song. I am learning something tonight.
Avatar 🎭 7:33pm TonyR:

you don't have a Sondheim toaster oven?
Avatar 7:33pm HyperDose:

I wonder what pink beverage you can get at a bar that's effervescent?
Avatar 🎭 7:36pm Listener Gregory:

Gentle & noble Bronwyn, "I Love You" is probably a deep cut in terms of Cole Porter's musical oeuvre, but it is actually pretty familiar to jazz listeners, as it has been covered, most notably by Bill Evans, and others. @doctorj, do you know it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Tony: No but I do have a Jule Styne crushed ice dispenser
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:41pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@HyperDose: I like the pink drink at Beauty Bar on 14th St! I have learned not to combine it with the blue drink
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:45pm Webhamster Henry:

"Is Stephen Sondheim based on a Real Person" Informative article for those watching "Tick, Tick... Boom!" thecinemaholic.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Gregory: I did not know that!! I always learn from you guys
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: lol what??? I just saw that movie on Tuesday and will share my thoughts
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:50pm Webhamster Henry:

The late WFMU DJ Citizen Kafka had a single out after 3 Mile Island called "It's a Meltdown" that you can catch on the Kafka tribute shows that Irene used to put on
Avatar 🎭 7:50pm TonyR:

Well, Dean Martin, so it is officially Dave the Spazz now.
Avatar 🎭 7:52pm TonyR:

Bitter old B'way composers are uploading to YouTube. What they are posting may surprise you!!!
Avatar 7:53pm HyperDose:

Whoa, Beauty Bar looks cool. Never seen anything like that before!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:54pm Webhamster Henry:

Hey that Cyrano trailer looks good! #obligatorycyranoreference
Avatar 🎭 7:55pm TonyR:

Who will write the Great American K-pop musical?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: Very excited for that Cyrano! Probably the only Cyrano musical we haven't heard from on this show yet
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:58pm doctorjazz:

LG @ 7:36, sure, know that one, and an even more "famous" (if a jazz recording can be thought of as famous) is the John Coltrane version. I didn't realize it was a "deep cut", but that's because I heard most of these as jazz versions first).
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:59pm Webhamster Henry:

Wow! I was JUST thinking that this might be a good song for this show!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Tony: Jason Kim, Helen Park and Max Vernon, who wrote the Off-Broadway musical KPOP from 2017!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I just meant that Mexican Hayride is a deep cut musical haha, not the song necessarily
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:01pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: great minds :)))
Avatar 🎭 8:05pm TonyR:

Okay, so that idea's dead, but hear me out: "Spotify!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:06pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Spotify the musical? I could write that one, I listen to Spotify all day long
Avatar 8:06pm ARB:

Hi BB! Babes!
Avatar 🎭 8:07pm TonyR:

The agony of transferring playlists, or songs which get yanked. A meta-musical.
Avatar 🎭 8:07pm Listener Gregory:

@doctorj, John Coltrane version!! You have stumped me on that one. I will have to look it up.
Avatar 🎭 8:08pm TonyR:

"Light grey....
I used to play you every day,
but now your title is... light grey."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:09pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hi ARB!!! :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:09pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Love it Tony!!!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:09pm doctorjazz:

John Coltrane, "I love You"
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Webhamster Henry:

"Can you say .. Adobe?" -- PeeWee's Great Adventure the musical.
Avatar 🎭 8:14pm TonyR:

Louis XVI. What a scamp!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Webhamster Henry:

The real Sondheim as Sondheim is also in the movie CAMP, which is kind of uneven, but certainly music-theatre friendly! www.imdb.com...
  8:20pm Listener Gregory:

@doctorj, with all the reissues and box sets, I don’t know what Coltrane I have any more.
  8:22pm Listener Gregory:

Bronwyn, apparently “The Lion, the Witch…” was the first written and published Narnia book. Much later Lewis wrote a prequel (according to Wikipedia), though some people argue it shouldn’t be read first.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:23pm doctorjazz:

True, LG, lots of Trane out there (and they keep finding me material to release).
Gotta run, thanks, Bronwyn!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:24pm doctorjazz:

*new material to release...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Gregory: I didn't know that either, the things I learn doing this show! I had a box set of those books as a kid and The Magician's Nephew was first, and I didn't question that
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm Bronwyn Bishop:

bye doctorjazz!!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:28pm Webhamster Henry:

Ahh, cabaret!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29pm Bronwyn Bishop:

i hear that's what life is
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:31pm Webhamster Henry:

You could do a Cabaret, Revue, and one-person jukebox show, that includes a lot of pre-song patter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:33pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I did that on September 24th!
  8:33pm Listener Gregory:

The Magician’s Nephew takes place before the other novels, but The Lion… is written as if the reader has never heard of Narnia. So maybe it should still be read first. When you write the musical versions, you can fix all that!
  8:34pm Listener Gregory:

Love Quadrophenia!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Webhamster Henry:

@BB D'oh missed that show! Looks fun!
  8:38pm Listener Gregory:

Daltrey really giving his all here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Not sure who that was, not Roger Daltrey though (it was a production of the musical)
Avatar 🎭 8:44pm Listener Gregory:

I will bet a million dollars that that was actually Roger Daltrey. However, if I lose, I cannot pay.
Avatar 🎭 8:48pm Listener Gregory:

OK, looked it up and it might not be Daltrey after all. I can write you a check, but don't cash it until I give you the word.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I will wait patiently and imagine what I shall spend my million dollars on (dijon ketchup?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Bronwyn Bishop:

good night everyone
Avatar 9:00pm HyperDose:

Thanks, Bronwyn. This was a fun jaunt!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:01pm Webhamster Henry:

Thanks Bronwyn! And other people: look up A... My Name Is Alice YouTube Videos!
Avatar 🎭 9:01pm Listener Gregory:

Beautiful show, BB! Thanks a million + 1.

Does anyone have the album that the Marx Brothers did with the Lennon Sisters?
