Freegal Streaming Suggestions*

With Me Little Ukulele in Me Hand (2018) by Diz Disley (Genre: Folk, Comedy, Jazz):

William “Diz” Disley was a Anglo-Canadian guitarist and ukulele player whose humorous ukulele songs have a sort of early twentieth century Dixieland sound and will bring a smile to your face.

Songs in this collection include: Little Ukulele, On the Wigan Boat Express, If You Want To Get Your Photo in the Press, Sitting On Top Of Blackpool Tower and When I’m Cleaning Windows.

Everything I Could Never Say (2018) by lovelytheband (Genre: Modern Pop, Rock with a touch of dance music mixed in):

lovelytheband is a Los Angeles based indie pop-rock band consisting of singer & songwriter Mitchy Collins, guitarist Jordan Greenwald and drummer Sam Price. Everything I Could Never Say is their new album.

Songs in the set include: broken, emotion, don’t worry, stupid mistakes, everything I could never say and pity party. (And just FYI for the grammar detectives out there – yes, the song titles on the album really are typed all in lower case letters…)

Forgotten But Not Gone (2009) by Various Artists:

Originally released in 2009, sales from this album originally went toward rebuilding New Orleans and the Gulf Coast in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The album features a great collection of songs by mostly vintage musicians including Bonnie Bramlett, Buddy & Julie Miller, Steve Earle, Chris Knight, Moses Crow and Lee Roy Parnell.

Songs on the album include: Last Night I Dreamed of New Orleans by Bonnie Bramlett, Indianola by Steve Azar, Steve’s Hammer by Steve Earle, Brighter Day by Jon Justice, Mardi Gras by Bruce Buscoyo Belliott and Hard Times in the Big easy by Wood Newton.

Recommended CD of the Week:

Halloween Stomp (1990) by Various Artists (Genre: Swing, Jazz, Vocal, Humor):

This collection of “spooky” performances is dominated by songs dealing with ghosts and monsters, everything from “Mysterious Mose” and “Got the Jitters” to “Zombie,” “Skeleton in the Closet,” “The Ghost of Smokey Joe” and “With Her Head Tucked Underneath Her Arm.” Most of the music is from the swing era with such bands as those led by Red Nichols, Don Redman, Glen Gray, Louis Prima, Ozzie Nelson, Cab Calloway, Tommy Dorsey and even Rudy Vallee alternating with much more obscure groups. The producers at Jass have also “enhanced” the music by inserting odd sound effects between songs. This CD certainly qualifies as the definitive (and also only) Halloween jazz album. – Scott Yanow, AllMusic Review.
