Duck Sauce – “It’s You” (from Quack, 2013)
This is more for the video than for the song….
The Souljazz Orchestra – “Kingdom Come” (from Inner Fire, 2014)
And this is more for the song than for the video (which is as it should be, I guess). Is this what a Post-Egyptian Afro Jazz Tango sounds like?
Jackson C. Frank– “Blues Run the Game” (from Jackson C. Frank, 1965, reissue 2014)
Frank’s self titled 1965 folk classic was reissued a few months ago. Despite being covered by Simon & Garfunkel, Nick Drake, John Mayer, and many others, he remains little known. The Guardian did a good article on him in January.
“By eliminating the need to get up early on Sunday, brunch would make life brighter for Saturday-night carousers. It would promote human happiness in other ways as well. Brunch is cheerful, sociable and inciting. It is talk-compelling. It puts you in a good temper, it makes you satisfied with yourself and your fellow beings, it sweeps away the worries and cobwebs of the week.” – from Brunch: A Plea, by Guy Beringer, in “Hunter’s Weekly”, 1895.
