March 9.2018

「The Great Dance Band Era」(ダンスバンドの黄金時代)から第3回目はLeo Reisman and His Orchestra です。

レオ・レイズマン楽団(解説ではレオ・ライスマンと記載)を知ったのは、ウディ・アレン(Woody Allen)の映画でした。

映画「Husbands And Wives(夫たち、妻たち)」の予告編でバッバー・マイリー(Bubber Miley)をフィーチャーした「What Is This Thing Called Love」が聞こえます。

Here is “Husbands And Wives” (夫たち、妻たち) 予告編(1992)

この5枚組レコードが制作されたのは1975年ですので、ウディ・アレンの作品については当然記載がありません。

解説では「1934年から第二次大戦中、1947年まで ウォルドルフホテルで演奏していた」と記載されています。つまりこの時代においてレイズマン楽団がダンスバンドとして高い評価を受けていたという事実が理解できました。

Lorenz Hart(1) 〜 Today is his birthday

Trailer of the latest work of Woody Allen has been published in Japan.

About Woody Allen,I posted his work ‘Manhattan’.

https://wordpress.com/post/sugarfootstomp.wordpress.com/259

In particular, this movie’s title song is very famous.

Today I want to post about the lyricist of this song.

The music was written by Richard Rodgers and the words by Lorenz Hart.

He was born May 2, 1895, died November 22, 1943.

At Columbia University he and Richard Rodgers began to write songs for a series of amateur and student productions.

Rodgers and Hart subsequently wrote the music and lyrics for 26 Broadway musicals during a more than 20 year partnership.

Next time, I want to post about my favorite songs.

 

Carmen Miranda in Radio Days

December 03. 2015

My most of the favorite in the works of  Woody Allen is  ‘Radio Days’.

In particular,the scene of Carmen Miranda’ song  was in my most impression.

I did not know her until I saw this movie.

Please to compare the movie scene and the genuine ‘Carmen Miranda’.

In the next blog I’m going to write about the shop that purchased the record of Carmen Miranda.

There is not the bench under Brooklyn Bridge

December 02. 2015

There are unforgettable memories in yesterday’s blog.

Dick Hyman has beautifully played in a short time.The song is ‘Theme from the Purple Rose of Cairo’.

I was taught the existence of this film to the’ Rosemary'(the owner of bar in Okayama City).

Since then, I became an avid fan of Woody Allen.

And I went to the filming site of ‘Manhattan’.

But there is not the bench under Brooklyn Bridge.

Probably, it would have been a movie set.

I would write about his film music in my blog.

Woody Allen trust Dick Hyman completely

December 01. 2016

If anything I do not really listen to the piano solo performance. However today I met the good piano performance.

This morning I read an interview with Mark Myers and Dick Hyman.

This interview was very interesting me.

I have searched his latest work in ‘iTunes Store’ immediately.

‘House of Pianos’ is a wonderful work.
