Gerhwin is a great artist as well.

The Score for Porgy and Bess is wonderfull.

Unfortunately we are begining to loose some of the best Jazz and Blues Musicians.

John Lee Hooker used to live about a half a mile from me in Vallejo Ca.

Comment by Loren Miller yesterday

Toots Thielemans was an artist of the first water.  I once heard him do his own take on Gershwin's "My Man's Gone Now," from Porgy and Bess and infused it with emotion the likes of which few voices could encompass.

His talent will be sorely missed.

Comment by Randall Smith yesterday

Thanks, Chris. I enjoyed listening (and watching) the harmonica man perform. Genius.

Comment by The Flying Atheist yesterday

Yes, Toots was fantastic.  A very soulful player.  Great songs in that playlist, Chris.

Toots is (Was) a great musician.

Comment by Randall Smith on Wednesday

Great harmonica (and guitar) player, Jean (Toots) Thielemans died at age 94. If you ever heard the Sesame Street music, that was Toots. He was a marvel on jazz harmonica. Probably his most famous jazz composition and recording was "Bluesette". I can hear it now. Farewell, Toots.

I don't remember this, Carl, but, wow! it was fun listening to--and following the lyrics. Amazing!

I remember this, thanks, Flying Atheist!

Lyrics compliments of

Reunion - Life Is a Rock (But the Radio Rolled Me)

B. B. Bumble and the Stingers, Mott the Hoople, Ray Charles Singers
Lonnie Mack and twangin' Eddy
Here's my ring we're goin' steady
Take it easy, take me higher, liar liar, house on fire
Locomotion, Poco, Passion, Deeper Purple, Satisfaction
Baby baby gotta gotta gimme gimme gettin' hotter
Sammy's cookin', Lesley Gore and Ritchie Valens - end of story
Mahavishnu, fujiyama, kama-sutra, rama-lama
Richard Perry, Spector, Barry, Righteous, Archies, Nilsson, Harry
Shimmy shimmy ko-ko bop and Fats is back and Finger Poppin'

Life is a rock but the radio rolled me
Gotta turn it up louder, so my DJ told me (whoa whoa)
Life is a rock but the radio rolled me (life is a rock, whoo whoo)
At the end of my rainbow lies a golden oldie

FM, AM, hits are clickin' while the clock is tock-a-tickin'
Friends and Romans, salutations, Brenda and the Tabulations
Carly Simon, Noddy Holder, Rolling Stones and centerfoldin'
Johnny Cash and Johnny Rivers, can't stop now, I got the shivers
Mungo Jerry, Peter Peter Paul and Paul and Mary Mary
Dr. John the nightly tripper, Doris Day and Jack the Ripper
Gotta go Sir, gotta swelter, Leon Russell, Gimme Shelter
Miracles in smokey places, slide guitars and Fender basses
Mushroom omelet, Bonnie Bramlett, Wilson Pickett, stomp and kick it

Life is a rock but the radio...
Life is a rock but the radio...


Arthur Janov's "Primal Screamin'", Hawkins, Jay and Dale and Ronnie
Kukla, Fran and Norman, Okla Denver, John and Osmond, Donny
JJ Cale and ZZ Top and LL Bean and De De Dinah
David Bowie, Steely Dan and sing me prouder, CC Rider
Edgar Winter, Joanie Sommers, Osmond Brothers, Johnny Thunders
Eric Clapton, pedal wah-wah, Stephen Foster, do-dah do-dah
Good Vibrations, Help Me Rhonda, Surfer Girl and Little Honda
Tighter, tighter, honey, honey, sugar, sugar, yummy, yummy
CBS and Warner Brothers, RCA and all the others

Life is a rock but the radio rolled me (Life is a rock, whoo whoo)
Gotta turn it up louder, so my DJ told me
Whoa whoa whoa who-o-oa
Life is a rock but the radio rolled me (Life is a rock, whoo whoo)
At the end of my rainbow lies a golden oldie

(Oooooo-ing in background)
Spoken: "Listen, remember, they're playing our song"

Rock it, sock it
Alan Freed me
Murray Kaufman, try to leave me
Fish, and Swim, and Boston Monkey
Make it bad and play it funky
(Wanna take you higher!)

Freddie King and Albert King B.B. King and frolicking
Get it on and Nat Gerardi, Papalardi, Hale and Hearty! (Baby baby baby baby, light my fire!)

(Celebrate!) Yeah (Dance to the music!)

There's a perfect more than human gentle words of Randy Newman;
One, two, three; so oh so please, I need a breather! (Celebrate, dance to the music) (Wanna take you higher!)


Tito Puente, Boffalongo, Cuban War and even Mongo
Peter Dial, Alex Hood, Boogie Brass (Baby baby baby baby, light my fire!)
(Celebrate! Dance to the music!)

Baby... Everything is alright - Whoo!!!

California (Everything is alright)
Beatlemania (Uptight)
New York City (Out of sight)
Bobby Vee
And SRO; yeah!!
