George Szell / Cleveland Orchestra - Bedřich Smetena Three Dances Bartered Bride (restored vinyl LP)

 


Bedřich Smetena - Three Dances Bartered Bride (restored vinyl LP)

"I'm crazy, but I'm not stupid." - Jackie Chan The Bartered Bride (Czech: Prodaná nevěsta, The Sold Bride) is a comic opera in three acts by the Czech composer Bedřich Smetana, to a libretto by Karel Sabina. The work is generally regarded as a major contribution towards the development of Czech music. It was composed during the period 1863 to 1866, and first performed at the Provisional Theatre, Prague, on 30 May 1866 in a two-act format with spoken dialogue. Set in a country village and with realistic characters, it tells the story of how, after a late surprise revelation, true love prevails over the combined efforts of ambitious parents and a scheming marriage broker. The opera was not immediately successful, and was revised and extended in the following four years. In its final version, premiered in 1870, it rapidly gained popularity and eventually became a worldwide success. Bedřich Smetana (/ˌbɛdərʒɪx ˈsmɛtənə/ BED-ər-zhikh SMET-ə-nə, Czech: [ˈbɛdr̝ɪx ˈsmɛtana] (About this soundlisten); 2 March 1824 – 12 May 1884) was a Czech composer who pioneered the development of a musical style that became closely identified with his people's aspirations to a cultural and political "revival." He has been regarded in his homeland as the father of Czech music. Internationally he is best known for his opera The Bartered Bride and for the symphonic cycle Má vlast ("My Fatherland"), which portrays the history, legends and landscape of the composer's native Bohemia.

The music is performed by Cleveland Orchestra, George Szell conducting.

Jack Teagarden - Riverboat Shuffle (restored jazz vinyl LP)

 


Jack Teagarden - Riverboat Shuffle (restored jazz vinyl LP)

"If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced." - Vincent Van Gogh The music is from the vinyl album Meet Me Where They Play the Blues. Jack Teagarden, trombone, vocals Jimmy McPartland, trumpet Edmond Hall, clarinet Dick Cary, piano Walter Page, bass Jo Jones, drums Weldon Leo "Jack" Teagarden (August 20, 1905 – January 15, 1964) was an American jazz trombonist and singer. Teagarden's trombone style was largely self-taught, and he developed many unusual alternative positions and novel special effects on the instrument. He is usually considered the most innovative jazz trombone stylist of the pre-bebop era – Pee Wee Russell once called him "the best trombone player in the world".

Louis Nelson Big Four - My Josephine



"I cook with wine, sometimes I even add it to the food." - W. C. Fields Louis Nelson, trombone Joe Robichaux, piano George Lewis, clarinet Emanuel Sayles, banjo Louis Hall Nelson (September 17, 1902 – April 5, 1990) was a New Orleans jazz trombonist. In 1961, Barbara Reed went to Baton Rouge to get a charter for an organization named The Society for the Preservation of Traditional New Orleans Jazz. This charter gave them a nonprofit corporate license status as they could not afford the entertainment tax. Because of Preservation Hall, Nelson had permanent work, exposure to a new audience, and was provided numerous opportunities for travel abroad as both a soloist and band member of the Billie and De De Piece and Kid Thomas Valentine's bands.
