(click song title above to listen)

Following the success of Sinatra’s successful compilation, This Is Sinatra!, Capitol Records followed suit in August of 1957 with a collection of previously released singles from the great Nat “King” Cole.

The lp This is Nat “King” Cole reached #18 on the Billboard album chart and featured the timeless Cy Coleman/Joseph McCarthy ballad, “I’m Gonna Laugh You Out of My Life”. Additional renowned recordings of the song followed by the likes of Sarah Vaughan, Peggy Lee, Johnny Mathis and Nancy Wilson but Nat’s was the first. The arrangement is a classic by Nelson Riddle. Nat would have been 99 years old come Saturday, happy birthday to one of the best!

I’m gonna laugh you right out of my life

Make it a beautiful joke

No one will know you broke my heart

But if I find you and I…really meant that last goodbye

Then, I’m gonna laugh so hard I’ll cry.

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.

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!

Skating Polly – Queen For A Day

(click song title above to listen)

We’re more than a little stoked to announce Skating Polly‘s new lp The Make It All Show is coming May 4th via El Camino Media, y’all! The album is the culmination of an extremely busy 2017 in which the band played over 100 shows including major festivals like Riot Fest & The Capitol Hill Block Party, a tour of the UK/EU with Kate Nash, plus a reunion with Exene Cervenka for two separate legs of X’s 40th anniversary tour.

Speaking of Cervenka, the punk rock legend also co-wrote this week’s top tune with the band, a song that sees the trio stretching out both musically and lyrically. Both the song and its accompanying VIDEO play out the obviously negative aspects of a competition that’s based on who can represent the most traditionally feminine image. They extrapolate from the ’40s and ’50s game show mindset to show how those elements are sadly all too applicable today. For the new album the group once again tempted up with producer Brad Wood (Liz Phair, Sunny Day Real Estate) and sets a new high mark in this young band’s recording career!
