Cy Coleman: A Jazzman’s Broadway

Cy31 1024x1024 Cy Coleman: A Jazzmans BroadwayBefore Cy Coleman was a noted composer of such shows as Little Me, Sweet Charity, Barnum and On the Twentieth Century, he was the favorite of the New York jazz scene. Now, for the first time, Cy and his fellow musicians play the scores of Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg’s hit show Jamaica in addition to songs from the Rodgers and Hammerstein hits Flower Drum Song and South Pacific. The works from the latter production have been taken from rare transcription recordings, and are making their first debuts since being recorded in the early 1950s. It’s 50s jazz at its finest!

Toots and the Maytals – Sunny

Happy New Year from all of us here at Notable! We are so excited to start the year of Top Tunes with arguably one of the best known ska and reggae groups of all time, Toots and the Maytals, and their cover of Bobby Hebb’s iconic R&B/pop tune “Sunny.” The Maytals’ seminal and distinctly Jamaican sound blended mento, folk, and gospel influences into a powerful new sound that, while rooted in rural traditions, delivered a completely modern feeling. Throughout the 1960′s this sound – featuring the inimitable Toots Hibbert on lead vocals – propelled the group to being the biggest selling musical act Jamaica had ever known at that time, and they are still going strong today. “Sunny” was recorded between tours at Toots Hibbert’s family studio in Kingston, Jamaica in October 2011 and arranged and mixed by Notable’s own Jeremy Page in Brooklyn, NY.

“Sunny” has just been released and is available on iTunes, Amazon, and everywhere fine digital music is sold.

This winter, get sunny with Toots…
