Thanks, Carl, for 3 minutes of great jazz piano! A good way to start my day. Moore really was good. Reminds me of Andre Previn, my most favorite.

OK, he was much more talented than I thought.

Spud, Dudley Moore was quite an accomplished pianist.  

Comment by Idaho Spud on May 10, 2017 at 9:34am

I like Dudley Moore's acting.  Did he play the piano that well, or was it dubbed?

Comment by Randall Smith on May 10, 2017 at 7:27am

Yes, Rossini's Wm. Tell Overture is one of my faves. I admit, however, not to like Bolero. Too repetitive. Dudley Moore, by the way (in "10"), was an excellant pianist.

Read my comment in "Classical Masters" group about Puccini.

I remember my first introduction to Ravel's Bolero was in high school when I watched the movie "10" with Bo Derek.  It's always interesting how pop culture can bring certain classical music pieces into prominence for a whole new audience to discover.

Spud, your post also reminds me that The Green Hornet radio theme song was Flight of the Bumblebee by Rimsky-Korsakov.  The Green Hornet and The Lone Ranger were written and produced by the same two men from a radio station in Detroit.

The radio show I Love A Mystery (one of my favorites) used Sibelius' Valse Triste as its theme, played eerily and mysteriously on the organ.

When I was young, I listened to a lot of stories on the radio.  One of them was The Lone Ranger.  I liked the excitement of the theme song, even though I didn't know it was the William Tell Overture finale.

As a teenager, I found a record with the William Tell Overture, and enjoyed the whole thing.   Eventually, I turned the record over to listen to the other side.  I was amazed that I liked that side as much or more than the music I bought it for, even though I'd never heard it before.

My memory of song titles and artists is not good, especially classical music, but even though I've not heard the music on the flip side of that record for a very long time, I heard it in a movie I was watching yesterday, and immediately said "Ravel! Bolero!"

Here's one version of it.  Hope it hasn't been posted here before.

My airplane had a Monk/Coltrane album to listen to. Good and classic, but not my preference.

Comment by Chris on April 29, 2017 at 11:22pm

I thought Miles was too avant guard as well. His style seemes to be integrated into jazz more now that people have gotten used to it.

Some music gives me a headache.  Miles often falls into that category sometimes.  Not as much as Strasvinski.

Thelonious Monk is great.

I don't know much about music, or music history Randall Smith.  All I know about Indiana is  that's werere "The Music Man" story (play, and movie) took place.

Dave Brubeck and Stan Kenton are a couple of my favorites.

Jazz Wizard Thelonious Monk’s Lost Masterpiece
To mark his centennial, the jazz legend’s lost album, ‘Les liaisons dangereuses 160,’ has finally been made available. And boy, is it special.
