No Prisoners, No Mercy Show 108 is live – You can hear the latest show on Virgin Worlds, and on Itunes. Alright, we know it has been out for a while now, but things have been a bit hectic around here lately what with Fran having been in a four car collision – her car resembled an accordion after it was hit from the rear and pushed into a truck.
This time out it was our pleasure to have Jessica Brown as a guest who took time to talk to us out of her busy schedule defending our country and policing the troops as the commanding officer of a military police unit. As you will hear, Jessica writes for Anjelsyndicate.org, Ironmanmode.com and hosts a podcast of her own over at allaweh.wordpress.com. You can peruse some of the articles we discussed in the list below.
American Royalty – The United Kingdom may have a Queen, Sweden may have a king, but the United States has royalty as well: Duke Ellington, Earl Hines and of course…
I first discovered The Count when I heard what is one of the most amazing pieces of jazz in recording history. That song is called Battle Royal and our regular listeners have already heard an excerpt of it in our last show. The CD of the same name is two bands lead by some of the most influential names in the history of Jazz…The Duke and The Count. Every time I hear that “album” I wish I could have been there to see the two greats and their bands playing in the same studio. One of the few times I have ever seen the two men play together is a small snippet on Youtube at the end of a show hosted by Doc Severson; unfortunately I do not know the name of the show, and the poster didn’t give it.
In 1924 William “Count” Basie went to Harlem – the home of the hottest Jazz, and the famous Cotton Club, that played hosts to names like Cab Calloway, Fats Waller, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Dizzie Gillespie, Nat King Cole and Billie Holiday. On the show you will hear Count Basie talk about his Kansas City years in the early 1930s. By 1937 Count Basie had his own orchestra and moved to New York City and into the era of Big Band Jazz and Swing. Even after the end of WW 2 and the big band years, Basie continued performing right up until the end in 1984.
Like so many other people, Duke Ellington and Count Basie introduced me to jazz and I have loved it ever since. Both men are even part of my vision of heaven – the top of my bucket list is to play trumpet with the Duke Ellington and Count Basie Bands. One day, on this or the other side of Eternity, I hope to achieve the dream
