my own jazz theater and oum is contemplative
So, last week I watched that Triplettes de Belleville movie, I liked it okay, but my absolute favorite part is there was this zany retro cartoon vaudeville intro with the super catchy theme playing (when i told the people i watched the movie with that was my favorite part they said i "missed the point" of the movie, i guess i agree). Well I want to get the soundtrack but i haven't yet, but thankfully freshman year Oum dated a jazz guitar performance major who copied her like twenty some jazz guitar cd's which she hates cos they don't sing enough. I find the early stuff to be the most charming. So here are some picks of what i been listening to this week. (This stuff is all new to me so any recommendations anyone might have are encouraged/appreciated)
Eddie Condon- Darktown Strutter's Ball
Django Reinhardt- Avalon
Oscar Aleman- Limehouse blues
Josephine Baker- La Petite Tonkinoise (Oum's pick. very cool, thanks)
Lonnie Johnson & Eddie Lang- Hot fingers (not really the same thing but included anyway)
here's oum's picks.
In Thailand there is a place called the Golden triangle, that is where this music comes from. I don't have much to say about the music except i listen to it in the early mornings and especially bright days and i think it is very beautiful. the song "free trio" is an exception to this though, it is a late night adventure!
These songs come from Music And Songs From The Golden Triangle on the Buda label.
Mr. A-Be-Dme- New Year
Mrs. A-Sa-Ma- My Love
M. Tai-Yae- Free Trio
we hope you enjoy,
