Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from April 29, 2022 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).

Welcome back, Bronwyn! Hello, darlings.

Yay! Busby Berkeley classic right out of the gate! Welcome back!

Nice to have all that cash, where to spend it (which is why I'll never be in the money...)
Hi BB and Acid Jazzers!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:06pm doctorjazz:

Nice to have Acid Jazz Hands back where it belongs!
Avatar 🎭 7:06pm TonyR:

So when do all the Twitter stockholders start jumping out of windows?
Avatar 🎭 7:06pm Listener Gregory:

Hmm, did someone win the lottery?
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:07pm doctorjazz:

Maybe Twitter will be even more profitable? (I'm guessing that is one of the goals, aside from the obvious political ones).
Avatar 🎭 7:07pm Listener Gregory:

@TonyR, *are* there any more Twitter stockholders? Musk is taking the company private.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:08pm doctorjazz:

Which has to mean he's buying them all out, no?
Avatar 🎭 7:08pm TonyR:

Good theme. I was supposed to start a new job 05/02. Now it's 05/09 because they "couldn't finish sll the access and onboarding tasks" by today. Plausible, but we'll see. I peed in a cup and everything.
Avatar 7:08pm still b/p:

I missed it. Did we hear Ginger singing pig latin?
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:08pm doctorjazz:

(or already did buy them out-that's where the purchase price goes...)

Imagine being a person who was entertained by Ted Lewis.

Also, too: my first-ever breathalyzer test. Apparently, I was doin it rong.

Bronwyn is sticking with Courtney Edison approved media today.

For best results use Okeh needles!

@WebhamsterH, I am the Ted Lewis of today’s singing generation.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:13pm WR:

Fox Trot with Vocal Refrain was the antecedent term to Popular Music or Pop as it came to be known.
Avatar 🎭 7:16pm TonyR:

I got 'cher Fox Trot right here, buddy!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:16pm Webhamster Henry:

You had to look long and hard to find a disk without "Fox Trot" on the label.
Avatar 🎭 7:18pm TonyR:

Is BB in the house? She usually comments after 1st track.

AAAH! There we go...
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:18pm doctorjazz:

Voice is low!
Avatar 🎭 7:20pm TonyR:

My voice isn't low! Your foxtrot is too high!!!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Webhamster Henry:

There's not a little bit of Squid Game in They Shoot Horses, Don't They?
Avatar 🎭 7:24pm Listener Gregory:

I read the book of They Shoot, and I didn't feel the need to see the movie, as I knew what kind of horror it would contain. I don't think all the spectators were rich people, though. Just regular people would come to gawk and also fantasize about the prize, if I'm correct.
Avatar 7:28pm still b/p:

Night and Day...so good, but sad.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:29pm doctorjazz:

One of those songs I've heard a billion times, but still don't recognize the opening verse.
Avatar 🎭 7:30pm TonyR:

"Not Licensed for Radio Broadcast." Good thing we're on the stream.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:31pm Webhamster Henry:

Note that the stage show was "Gay Divorce" and the movie "Gay Divorcée" because: reasons.
Avatar 🎭 7:33pm Listener Gregory:

I once read liner notes that said that Fred Astaire may have introduced the greatest American songs to more people than any other singer, through his movie performances (and also commercial recordings like this one). He is not a technically great singer, but he has a nice, straightforward delivery with natural phrasing that is a lot more tolerable than many singers of his time.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:34pm doctorjazz:

I like Astaire's singing (but I agree, he's not technically a great singer).
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:35pm doctorjazz:

Nothin' but the hits!
Avatar 🎭 7:35pm TonyR:

A veritable Bounty.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:36pm doctorjazz:

Dizzy Gillespie did the jazz classic version of I Can't Get Started-almost another song in his version.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:39pm Webhamster Henry:

Kern was the master of a graceful key change.
Avatar 🎭 7:41pm Listener Gregory:

Astaire was also great at bringing out the humor in songs. But please don't play The Yam! I'm begging here.
Avatar 7:44pm still b/p:

The Swing Time number that goes with Pick Yourself Up is one of my definite favorites of Fred and Ginger's dances -- I think top choice. In the film she sings it to him before their simply staged peppy dance blows the socks off the dance studio boss after Fred first feigned no ability with teacher Ginger.
Happy.
Avatar 7:46pm still b/p:

Bert Lahr + powdered wig = Win.
  7:49pm Ruby Keeling Over:

Is that different from The Gay Divorcee?
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Webhamster Henry:

You could play a bit of Pins & Needles in honor of Streisand's birthday,
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:53pm Webhamster Henry:

The movie is lots of fun, but is a kind of "Making Of" bio pic and not the actual show of The Cradle Will Rock.
  7:54pm Listener Gregory:

The rich are loathsome, and I would very much like to become one.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:55pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, Bronwyn and cast!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:02pm Webhamster Henry:

And I got my request! This record is so much fun!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:03pm doctorjazz:

Read a scathing review of the new Funny Girl earlier today (wife saw it, didn't like it either)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:09pm WR:

Marvelous Ethel Waters performance.
Avatar 8:14pm still b/p:

A big "No" from a reviewer always has potential to be somehow satisfying -- because of the jive and junk that producers run by us so often, I suppose. A new mini-series about getting "The Godfather" made gets a raking here, if anyone's interested.
www.npr.org...
Avatar 🎭 8:20pm TonyR:

My Primary Care Doc saw new Funny Girl. Not a fan of the new singer, but thinks she's a fine actress.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:22pm doctorjazz:

Of course, Louis Armstrong has THE version of I Got a Right to Sing The Blues (Cab has heard Louis' version, overdoing it a bit, if you ask me).
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:23pm doctorjazz:

Though, overdoing it WAS Cab Calloway's trademark!
Avatar 🎭 8:23pm TonyR:

The Boulevard..?
  8:24pm Listener Gregory:

@doctorj, you beat me to it with that comment re: Calloway.
  8:25pm Listener Gregory:

@stillbp, thanks for the link to the review. You may have saved me quite a few hours.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:25pm doctorjazz:

Hey, none of them was Sinatra, y'know...😉
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:27pm doctorjazz:

I'd post the link to the Funny Girl review, it's on NJ.com, but is behind a firewall, you only get to read the 1st 2 lines
The title of the review:
‘Funny Girl’ review: People need people, but they don’t need this
Avatar 🎭 8:29pm TonyR:

I wonder if they should have gone out of town on the "Funny Girl" reboot. The original was a slog with too much of everything. and trimmed down (such as it was) for the Winter Garden.
Avatar 🎭 8:31pm Listener Gregory:

Chris Connor does a much livelier and jazzier version of "Ten Cents" on her album "Classic," Contemporary 1987. Some excellent jazz musicians chip in.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:40pm doctorjazz:

Duke, Ivie Anderson, nice!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:41pm diciassette:

Hi Bronwyn and Bronwynites! Who needs firewalls? Firewalls are for sissies!
  8:44pm Listener Gregory:

My personal firewall is a wall of fire. Yet the squirrels somehow still get through!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:45pm WR:

Call me contrarian but I prefer sour grapes over sweet cherries.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:45pm doctorjazz:

LG, like Johnny Cash!
(did you find an audio dealer to ask about the speakers?)
  8:50pm Listener Gregory:

@doctorj, not yet. I have to do an internet search. Maybe I can get something cheap on Craigslist. (These are not for my real stereo; only for movies.)
  8:51pm Listener Gregory:

Yo be fair to Hoover, he did a lot of good managing food relief to Europe after WWI. That was before he helped destroy the world economy.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:51pm doctorjazz:

Ah, as I said, sometimes it's only the driver's surround that wears out (loses it's flexibility), that's not a big repair, but unless they are fairly pricey to begin with, may pay just to look for a replacement.
Avatar 🎭 8:53pm Listener Gregory:

Do you still have audio dealers in NJ? Most have closed, it seems to me, except for ultra high-end.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:59pm doctorjazz:

There are still some audio dealers here in NJ, though audio dealers in general, if they're not a big chain, deal in "ultra high end". That doesn't necessarily mean $100,000 systems, but more expensive than Best Buy might be selling. (many components that are good are less than $1K)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:59pm doctorjazz:

Getting to the end, really enjoyed the show, thanks, Bronwyn!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:00pm doctorjazz:

(There are less audio dealers than there used to be here as well, and many shifted to installing Home Theater).
  9:00pm Listener Gregory:

Great show, BB! You really did your homework for this one. Let’s hope we aren’t making our own Depression musicals in another year or so.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:01pm Webhamster Henry:

That wasn't so depressing was it? YOWZA!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:03pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Yowza Yowza Yowza Darlings
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:03pm diciassette:

This has obviously been a particularly awesome show that I missed slightly more than the majority of, being distracted by silly things like cross-site something or other (I don't even remember what it was now).
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:04pm diciassette:

Thank you and yowza!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:04pm Bronwyn Bishop:

it suddenly occurs to me that parts of the melody from Damn Yankees' "You Gotta Have Heart," are lifted from this, weirdly
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:05pm doctorjazz:

Yowza, y'all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:05pm Bronwyn Bishop:

"we're so happy that we're hummin'" = "and once he used to love me"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:06pm Bronwyn Bishop:

anyway, thank you all for joining me on this depressing journey <3
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 9:06pm WR:

thank you thank you for remembering.
