The Grand Classic Sounds of New York (Qool DJ Marv's Director's Cut)
November 16, 2010 08:09 PM PST

I love those classic New York movies that have scenes where someone’s keeping their night going by heading to a friend’s afterparty and when they walk in, there’s a mini-jazz orchestra providing the grooves. This is happening in someone’s apartment! The bandleader with the baton bopping with a welcoming smile.


I’ve never had the pleasure but I recently read in Stanley Crouch collection of essays called Considering Genius that Wynton Marsalis gets down like that for real, presently. This is an I Love New York mix that I got commissioned to compile by a special events consultant extraordinaire (Bowen & Company) that was organizing an affair involving the unveiling of a new Trump Tower penthouse suite.

A nice new place was on display and my job here was to give the room a classic and grand sound. I’ve got a real soft spot for singers like Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra and for jazz in general so this was one of those ‘they pay me to do this(?)’ kind of assignments. http://www.bowenandco.com/

I didn’t get the chance to see the place so I just imagined being on the top of the Empire State building and looking around or re-imagined walking around great neighborhoods all over New York City. Watched some movies like Cotton Club, Harlem Nights, Breakfast At Tiffany's, and Manhattan and imagined what it might be like to be a jazz loving socialite way back when.

This is a city that never ceases to astound and I wish I was around to see performances of all these sounds. Play these songs however, and I feel like I’m right there, then. So glad that I’m right here, now. I do love New York and I hope that this is a keepsake to us proper or former New Yorkers and maybe a delectable enticement to those who want to visit New York proper.

Some titles appear more than once because all the versions are outstanding, yet, performed completely differently. That's Jazz. Enjoy New York City on the Jazz hand side.

This is what it sounds like when that good woman and that good man are so very fortunate enough to have found one another. Together, they sing - and if one or neither can sing, they dance.

Eyes smile because they are delighted about the time that they share together and the memories that they will make. They are happy about what they have, someone who cares about them as they try to live well and pursue their dreams. Their smiles turn into laughter because they are elated that they both took the time to refine how they love themselves - and because they embraced the greatest love of all - with one another, they feel, the greatest love of all.

It's real. I speak from experience. The love you hear in these voices, dear friend, exists.


The show is called "I Can Imagine" and airs on Wednesdays from 8pm-10pm on WURD, 900 on your A.M. dial or by internet from http://900amwurd.com/
