Backwater Blues

Blues Notes
Backwater Blues

Bessie Smith recorded “Backwater Blues” in 1927, and it became an anthem for one of the most devastating national disasters in US history. The Mississippi River flood of 1927 was horrific. About a thousand people lost their lives. Almost half a million homes were destroyed. Almost a million people became homeless for a time. Entire black neighborhoods were wiped out. This incident gave birth to an important blues era, now known as the Delta Blues era. The blues artists...


Crimson & Clover

Rock Notes
Crimson & Clover

It's pretty much a three-chord pop song with inarticulate lyrics, but Tommy James and the Shondells' classic is up there with the best. The weird logic of dreams. Images, colours, nonsense word combinations. They seem to make sense. Tommy James woke up one day with the phrase ‘Crimson & Clover’ in his head.

Jazz Notes
Fats Waller’s Ain't Misbehavin'

The song was written by Fats and myself at his West...

Shostakovich - Symphony No. 5 in D Minor

On the eve of Jan. 26, 1936 Joseph Stalin and his entourage attended a performance of Shostakovich's “Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District” but they left the theater before the last act. The opera had been playing to acclaim for two years in Moscow and its 29-year-old composer was hailed a Russian musical genius, beloved by his fellow countrymen.

Silencio (Silence)

Latin French, Italian Notes
Silencio (Silence)

One of the most moving and touching 'boleros' ever, "Silencio" was composed by Puerto Rico's Rafael Hernandez, a major figure of Latin American music. The rendition features Ibrahim Ferrer and Omara Portuondo in a soulful duet Wim Wenders filmed the recording session in Havana as well as the performance of the song in Amsterdam.
