Note From Dada!
Ώτα μου καλησπέρα,
Πρώτο δισκάκι για τον μήνα Σεπτέμβρη μία συλλογή αποτελούμενη από 22 κομμάτια (εφτά εκ των οποίων δημοσιεύονται για πρώτη φορά), από τον τρομπονίστα-τραγουδιστή Turk Murphy και την παρέα του. Για την ακρίβεια από όλες τις "παρέες" που απάρτισαν τους Turk Murphy's Jazz Band από το 1947 εώς το 1952. Πρόκειται για το 2ο Vol. μία σειράς που απότελέιται από δύο cd (δυστυχώς δεν διαθέτω το πρώτο volume...κι αυτό εν καιρό...) που σκιαγραφεί ένα μέρος της καριέρας του Murphy, η οποία βασίστηκε κυρίως στις ρίζες αλλά και στα παρακλάδια αυτού που αποκαλείται Dixie Jazz.
Στο cd περιέχεται μία από τις πιο ωραίες ορχηστρικές προσεγγίσεις του "Willie The Weeper", και κατά τη γνώμη μου όλα τα τραγούδια που ερμηνεύει ο ίδιος ο Murphy είναι και οι καλύτερες στιγμές του δίσκου, όπως το κλάσικ "After You Gone" (των Turner Layton και Henry Creamer) σε μία απ' τις πιο αγαπημένες μου εκτελέσεις (ασχέτως αν είμαι κολλημένος με την εκτέλεση του Freddie Taylor με τους Django & Grappelli), το "Wise Guys" ή το "Flamin' Mamie".
Για να πάρετε μία γέυση ποστάρω παρακάτω κάποια βιντεάκια, εκ των οποίων το τρίτο είναι και το κερασάκι στην τούρτα, καθώς εκτός των άλλων ο Murphy τραγούδησε και έπαιξε με την μπάντα του για τη γνωστή παιδική τηλεοπτική σειρά "Sesame Street "!

Καλή ακρόαση!

About Turk Murphy 
Melvin Edward Alton “Turk” Murphy (born Palermo, California, December 16, 1915; died San Francisco, California, May 30, 1987) was renowned as a trombonist who played traditional and dixieland jazz in San Francisco.

Murphy served in the Navy during World War II, during which time he played and recorded when he could, with the likes of Lu Watters and Bunk Johnson. In 1952, he headed his own band, "Turk Murphy's Jazz Band," which included pianist Wally Rose, clarinetist Bob Helm, banjo player Dick Lammi, and tubaist Bob Short. They played at the Italian Village at Columbus and Lombard, in San Francisco’s North Beach. The band appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show twice, in 1959 and 1965. In 1979, horn man Bob Schulz began an eight-year stint with the band. Other notable band members over the years included trumpeters Don Kinch, Bob Short, and Leon Oakley; pianists Pete Clute and Ray Skjelbred; and singer Pat Yankee.

Murphy was the singer for the famous 1971 Sesame Street cartoon shorts, "The Alligator King" and "#9 Martian Beauty" animated and produced by his long time friend animator Bud Luckey. Murphy also arranged and performed on many of Bud Luckey's other Sesame Street animated Shorts. In addition to Luckey, Murphy was a long time friend of fellow trombonist and Disney animator Ward Kimball who created many memorable caricatures of Murphy and Charles Addams creator of The Addams Family.

Among other venues, Murphy's band played his nightclub "Earthquake McGoons," which opened in 1960 and moved three times, from 99 Broadway to 630 Clay in 1964, the Embarcadero in 1979 and Pier 39 in 1983, before closing in 1984.

In January 1987, Murphy played Carnegie Hall. He died on May 30, 1987.

Murphy ruled with Lu Watters and Bob Scobey the revivalism in the San Francisco area. His band recorded and released dozens of albums.
