Captain Howdy posted a topic in Miscellaneous MusicI'm not usually musically perceptive but I was listening to Artie Shaw playing "Begin the Beguine" and it reminded me of Diana Krall's version of "All or Nothing at All". I'd never heard the Harry James/Frank Sinatra version until just now but I don't hear the same resemblance, perhaps because it's too slow. Anyone else hear a similarity?
This week's Night Lights program pays tribute to the Artie Shaw centenary (Artie born May 23, 2010) by focusing on the last few years of his recording career--his short-lived but dynamic 1949 big band, some of the classical recordings he made that same year, and his revived Gramercy Five of 1953-54. The show is now archived for online listening: Shaw Sounds Final: Artie Shaw 1949-1954 Next week: "The Last: Final Recordings of Jazz Greats" (Artie will pop up in that one as well)
