Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from January 3, 2020 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).

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:03pm Bronwyn Bishop:

i had to google coucou. that is a super adorable way of saying hello!

Hi!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:05pm Bronwyn Bishop:

the doctor is in!!!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:06pm Webhamster Henry:

Hi! The track name is so long, I couldn't click on the link on the homepage to get here!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:07pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Cou cou ga joob! (I presume that means "Hello, walrus.")
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:08pm Webhamster Henry:

Charles Nelson Reilly is in the center square today.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Webhamster Henry:

So who were Jerry Herman's orchestrators? It's very very 60s Show Tunes sound.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Herman's go-to orchestrator was Philip J. Lang. I'm glad you mentioned the orchestrators because they are the unsung heroes of musical theatre and music in general (and I'm a bit put out that there's a redline under the word orchestrator, as if they're not well-known enough to be in the dictionary...)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:25pm Webhamster Henry:

Kurt Weill was one of the few who did his own orchestrations!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Yes! And in the non-musical theatre world, it's a sign of how extraordinary Brian Wilson was that he did all his own orchestrations (including the very complex ones in Pet Sounds!) Even his hero George Gershwin didn't orchestrate Rhapsody in Blue!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:28pm Webhamster Henry:

Irving Berlin could only play in the key of F#... so he had help and a transposing piano!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29pm Bronwyn Bishop:

True, I love that about him, it's so random
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:39pm doctorjazz:

Music levels seem low, listening in the car, had to turn the volume all the way up in the car, them when you went on Mic I got blasted.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:44pm diciassette:

confession: the moment I ascertained this show was actually coming on a mixed a martini
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:46pm diciassette:

This is soooo rad. I think we could handle a little gain bump
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm Bronwyn Bishop:

better?
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:48pm diciassette:

Quite acceptable!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:51pm doctorjazz:

Yidcore? Watta riot!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I love that they made a Totally Rad version of the original cast album cover!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:02pm doctorjazz:

Loved the movie(High Fidelity)way back when, don't recall the show (my wife tells me we saw it but I don't recall it at all...i think she went without me)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:04pm diciassette:

Sugar Highhhhhhhhhh
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:06pm Webhamster Henry:

Yeah, Dennis Diken comes in from time to time and also Dave Amels, "DA the DJ" plays with them a lot.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:07pm diciassette:

Anybody remember The Nines?
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:08pm diciassette:

(I mean from Jersey, Smithereens related)
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Webhamster Henry:

My friend Neil Radisch did a Hunchback Musical back in the 90s right when the Disney version was coming out!
www.neilradisch.com
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Bronwyn Bishop:

You're friends with Neil Radisch?? I discovered his version on Spotify (had never heard of him before) when I was looking for Hunchback musicals and played a song from his version along with a bunch of others in this show right after the fire: www.wfmu.org...

Love his version!!!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:36pm Webhamster Henry:

He's a composing fool! I used to work with him back in 92-93 or so.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Webhamster Henry:

I used to listen to Oh Kay! a lot - a really well produced studio album of a show that understandably had no Original Cast Recording.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Webhamster Henry:

In the same class as the excellent Pins And Needles with basically Babs' premiere recording.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Well if Neil ever wants to do an interview, I am the interviewer for the job!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Webhamster Henry:

I wonder if he has any time, but sure. I also used to work with another musical composer at another job, Eric Grunin. Friend 'em on Facebook and see if they'll come out to Jersey!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:49pm Webhamster Henry:

Eric pointed me to this article, BTW. He participated in this program:

Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:52pm Webhamster Henry:

Czesław Niemen was one of the singers the Polish rock-musical concept album Na Szkle Malowane (1970). There, That's the only thing I know about Polish rock musicals.
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:54pm doctorjazz:

Fun show, thanks, Bronwyn!
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 8:55pm diciassette:

But you just got here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@Henry: You know more than I do about Polish rock musicals! Thanks for that info!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:56pm Bronwyn Bishop:
