I’m Sure He’s a Jazz Legend… In France

KCCK is posting staff Halloween favorites each day leading up to Oct. 31. Here’s mine.


The first time I ever heard “That Old Black Magic” was when it was performed by that legendary jazz singer… Jerry Lewis.

In the original “Nutty Professor,” Lewis (as his suave Hyde-persona Buddy Love) sings a quite serviceable version of the tune. In the years since, of course, I’ve come to see where Jerry borrowed from Sinatra, Ella, and even his frenemy Dean Martin for this performance.

But even though Lewis owes A LOT to artists with a more extensive pedigree, this version still swings.

Pandemic on the Brain

Today, I had the honor of notifying my friend Jim Dreier that he is the 2020 inductee into the Iowa Jazz Educators Hall of Fame, the highest honor a jazz educator in Iowa can receive.
 
I hope the gravitas of this honor is not be diminished by the typo in the notification.
 
We will make sure that Jim’s PLAQUE is sanitized and safe to be handled.
Plaque, not Plague

It’s All About The Women

TheGazette_20200308_D06_1

Thanks to Mary Sharp from the Cedar Rapids Gazette, for her kind profile in the March 8 edition of the paper. The article ended up focusing quite a bit on the role that Mary, Morgan, and Sophie played in the conclusion to the Traveler Trilogy.

Kind of a fun coincidence that the article dropped on International Women’s Day!
