And now, the moment that at least half a dozen of you have been waiting for— presenting the June Pilsner's Picks! If you like slide whistles, snake charmers, stream line rhythm, and soft lights and sweet music, we've got 'em all. It's too tight!
Since you've got to be modernistic, why not be modernistic with the May edition of Pilsner's Picks? After all, this ancient music was all very modern, once upon a time.
For example, John Kirby and his hot little combo were making Beethoven roll over, years before Chuck Berry did!…
The Donald The President (or is that The President The Donald?), hasn't found any reason to shut down Pilsner's Picks yet, so here's the March edition.
Notable this month, a real oddity in the enormous Duke Ellington discography: an early Ellington band record with an accordion as the featured instrument. I suspect that this is the only such record of the Duke's, and I've heard most of them from the 20's and 30's. Who did he think he was, anyway? Lawrence Welk?!
