Bobby Short – It Amazes Me

(click song title above to listen)

Cabaret singer Bobby Short was a long tenured champion of The Great American Songbook with a 35 year run at the esteemed Cafe Carlyle in New York City. A favorite performer of Woody Allen’s, Short recorded a full album of Cy Coleman repertoire in 1963 for Atlantic Records entitled, My Personal Property.

A close musical friend of an earlier generation of writers such as Cole Porter, Noel Coward, George Gershwin, and Rodgers & Hart, Short shows “he is worthy of such company as important Coleman interpreters as Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett” says William Ruhlmann of AllMusic, “and demontrates that Coleman and Carolyn Leigh are worthy of the company of the classic songwriters he usually covers”.

This week’s tune is one of our favorite ballads of all time and was also recorded over the years by Tony Bennett, Shirley Horn, Blossom Dearie, and Liza Minnelli.

Peggy Lee – I’m In Love Again

(click song title above to listen)

Peggy Lee and composer Cy Coleman‘s artistic and personal relationship lasted for decades. From late night parties with pals Cary Grant & Dyan Cannon, to night club sets, tv specials & rewarding recording sessions birthing #1 Pop Hits such as her iconic rendition of Coleman/Fields’ “Big Spender“. Peggy added Cy to a distinguished group of collaborators in Victor Young, Harold Arlen, Duke Ellington, and Johnny Mandel linking her poetic lyrical abilities with Coleman’s compositional wizardry for a string of 1960s Lee-Coleman penned classics like “That’s My Style”, “Then Was Then and Now is Now”, and “That’s What it Takes”.

Lee routinely released two wholly new albums every year at Capitol Records between 1957-1972. This week’s tune is the title track from her first 1964 offering, another Coleman/Lee classic with punchy arrangements by Dick Hazard, Shorty Rogers and Bill Holeman considered some of the finest of her very prolific decade.

Check out this supremely moving 2009 rendition by Missy Higgins!

Freddy Fresh w/Fatboy Slim – Badder Badder Schwing

(click song title above to listen)

“Badder Badder Schwing”, was released in 1999 by one of the most active and prolific American underground dance music artists of the past 20 years, Minneapolis’s own, Freddy Fresh. In addition to a growing stateside audience, Fresh was also one of the first contemporary non-Detroit techno/electro musicians to have a strong European following.

Freddy Fresh’s fusion of electro & breakbeat funk springboards nicely with the big-beat fad of the late 90′s as demonstrated on his album The Last True Family Man. “Badder Badder Schwing” was a Top 40 hit in the UK and is a Fatboy Slim collaboration. Freestylers and Grandmaster Flash also contribute on this album.

Please enjoy the video HERE.

Skating Polly – Across the Caves

(click song title above to listen)

“There’s no right or wrong way to make art”

Step-sister duo Skating Polly released their fourth album The Big Fit earlier this year, described as “likely to be the most intelligent, honest, and powerful record of 2016″ by Nina Rädel of Abglanz Mag. We like this Nina Rädel.

Abglanz flew to London to see the band live earlier this year and had a chat with them about music videos, songwriting and being role-models. One thing very apparent is the joy and creativity Kelli and Peyton bring to making videos, one for every tune. Check out the latest for one of our favorite jams from the album, Across the Caves, HERE.

The band are currently prepping a full tour and the release of a stupendous collaboration with Nina Gordon and Louise Post of Veruca Salt for early 2017. Meanwhile you can catch them on tour supporting legendary punk band X on their 40th Anniversary Tour November 29 at the Crocodile (Seattle) and December 2nd at Crystal Palace (Portland)!
