Rafi Zabor’s Updoc, July 26 & 30

I think that what got me into programming an almost all-organ show this week—Updoc, Friday at 8PM and next Tuesday at noon, Organic Brooklyn Time—was the unbidden memory of how cool Jimmy Smith’s break was into his solo out of the brassy triplets of Elmer Bernstein’s film theme Walk on the Wild Side (as orchestrated by Oliver Nelson): the rhythm bunches up with Grady Tate’s press roll and then the rhythm section hits the release and Smith plays the perfect churchy-funky lick and the whole thing rolls like a wheel on fire. No wonder it was a radio hit in 1962, six minutes long, with the organ break starting the second side of the 45. I bought it. I still buy it. The rest of the show rolled on from there some Larry Young with the Lifetime and a Blue Note session, Bach’s great Passacaglia and Fugue, Don Patterson with Booker Ervin, a Duruflé fugue, Messiaen’s Apparition de l’Église Eternel—for some of it he clearly hopes that the Eternal Church will scare the shit out of the parishioners—Fats Waller playing St. Louis Blues, and (for the title at least) Count Basie and Pres playing the Upright Organ Blues. Then there’s a piano surprise and Jimmy Smoth’s long Blue Note jam from’57, The Sermon, so churchy-funky it’s got tailfins. The tag from Philip Glass fades out just before it gives you a headache. Bring your liver, kidneys, heart and lungs.

Howling  admits to the ageing process, gives 5 long haired blokes from Richmond (UK) a break in their career and gets a surprise package just in time to finish off the show. Once again folks, it’s another hootin’ tootin’ and rootin’ voyage through the world of cool music coming from Dick’s Porch

Rafi Zabor’s Updoc, July 19 & 23

I don’t play a lot of short songs on the show—Updoc, Friday at 8PM, noon next Tuesday, Heated Eastern Daylight Time—very often, especially since my colleague Brian Cullman knows more of them than I do and can even put them on toast; but it’s hot outdoors and in and I felt like playing some familiar shorter things, starting out with Mose Allison and moving on to Lady Day, Frank Sinatra—effortlessly fine on One For My Baby, but really impressive on Sammy Cahn’s difficult, chromatic Only the Lonely, which must be even tougher to sing than Lush Life—plus Swamp Dogg and Esther Philips’ great The Love We Got Ain’t Worth Two Dead Flies, the Meters, Bobby “Blue” Bland and Jesse Winchester. Then we chill things down, way down, with Béla Bartók’s one-acter Bluebeard’s Castle. I’m usually wary of playing opera on the show, but this one’s a two-hander with a simple plot: Bluebeard comes home with a new wife, she wants to open the doors and let the light in, he says Don’t do that! and she insists and it works out badly. Classic performance by Christa Ludwig, Walter Berry, Istvan Kertesz and the LSO. If it doesn’t make your hair stand on end it’s because you’re sweating too much or have a hat on. Actually, I picked the Bartók first, and the hook to putting some songs on was Mose Allison’s odd Meade-Lux-Lewis-by-way-of-Bartók piano style, and it’s always good to hear from the sage of Tippo, Miss. Béla “Blue” Bartók’s Ba-Lues Are! belamose
