When I was a child, my parents still listened to 78 rpm records. (Now if you don’t know what those are, don’t feel bad. Record companies had stopped pressing them by the time I was born. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. *Cough*)
Anyway, I inherited the collection which included many jazz greats. My favorite was “After Hours” performed by Dizzy Gillespie, Sonny Stitt, and Sonny Rollins. There was something about the sensuous horns and tinkling of the ivories that caught my attention. The 78 version was a bit shorter than this LP version (remember those) found on YouTube. Listen and you can see why these gentlemen were considered among the best at what they did.
So make some jazzy time and enjoy your Sunday.
Awesome, thanks Judiang!
Glad you enjoyed it Jazzy. 🙂
This is gorgeous! It’s 7.22am on Sunday morning…what a glorious thing to listen to while lounging in bed.
My parents have a lot of 78s. Possibly nothing this cool but my mum’s teenage collection features Elvis’ Treat me Nice and Paul Anka’s Diana.
Kathryn, glad you enjoyed it. Hey, make sure they don’t get rid of those 78s. Those are collectors’ items!.
We have some 78s around here inherited from somewhere but I don’t think I’ve ever heard them (we don’t have the machine).
This is great music.
My parents had a lot of great stuff. There’s even an ancient Al Jolson album. Use to be some Bessie Smith records, but alas they were stolen.
Smooooooth! Thanks for sharing! Glad to have you back! Hugs!
Glad you enjoyed it. 🙂 *hugs back*
