Woody Woodpecker & Freddie Hubbard

8 posts in this topic

When did the cartoon Woody Woodpecker start running on TV? I'm asking because it sounds like Freddie is quoting Woody on the master take of"One Finger Snap" from Empyrean Isles (around 0:40-0:45). I noticed it yesterday and keep cracking up every time I hear it.

ed: You can read all about Woody Woodpecker here. I didn't realize there was a "Woody Woodpecker Song" -- is that what Freddie's quoting? (Is the song the same thing as the crazy laugh? I only remember the laugh.)

You probably know that WW was around long before he started appearing on TV.

I did not know that until I read the wikipedia article, actually.

Actually Wayne quoted the laugh (except the last note goes up instead of down) in his tune Look at the Birdie (pun intended I think). Maybe they all watched cartoons on those Jazz Messenger tours.....

Les Claypool plays the laughing noise Woody Woodpecker makes on his bass on the title track from the Sausage album "Riddles Are Abound Tonight."

I recall that Phillip Larkin accused Charlie Parker of frequently resorting to the Woody Woodpecker laughing phrase (or a close cousin) in his solos. Of course, Larkin pretty much hated anything in jazz after swing.
