"21st century. And the listeners of KQED looks like we're going to see some showers maybe coming in a day or two light showers in the North Bay through San Francisco Friday night into Saturday, But New Year's Eve looks partly cloudy and try time now for fresh air. It's 706 on KQED public radio. This is fresh air. I'm Terry Gross. Happy New Year. We're happy to say goodbye to 2020, and we want to end it with something enjoyable and entertaining. So we're going to listen to a performance and interview we recorded earlier this month. Here's that show. Over the past few months, I haven't been able to listen to as much music as I'd like, because so much of my listening time has been devoted to shows and podcasts about politics. The election. And Cove it But when I do listen to music, really good music. I feel especially vulnerable to the mood, whether it's joy or sadness, and that's how I felt when I listen to the new album by Loudon, Wainwright and Vince Giordano of songs from the 19 twenties and thirties. It's the period Yordano typically draws from with the 11 piece band. He leads the Nighthawks. During normal times. The band attracts devoted followers who come to listen and dance. He plays tuba base and bass saxophone. This is not the music you'd associate with Loudon Wainwright, who's best known for writing and performing his own songs, which range from confessional songs about family dysfunction to satirical songs about politics and other issues. His Children include singer songwriters Rufus and Martha Wainwright and Lucy Wainwright, Roach, and they sometimes write songs about family, too. Loudon, Wainwright and Vince Giordano previously worked together on the HBO series Boardwalk Empire, which was set during Prohibition and was about Gangsters who made bootleg liquor and who served it in nightclubs in Atlantic City. Giordano and his band performed a lot of the music for the show. Loudon Wainwright, saying a couple of the songs the title track of their new album, I'd Rather lead a band is a song from the Fred Astaire Ginger Rogers movie. Follow the fleet. The album also features songs by Rodgers and Hart, Fats Waller, Harold Arlen Frank, Lesser and others. Vince Giordano and Loudon Wainwright are joining us from the hobo Sound studio in New Jersey, where they're socially distanced in separate rooms. They brought their instruments and are going to perform some songs for us, But let's start with a track from the album that may help brighten your mood. If you're feeling down, it's called so the bluebirds and the Blackbirds got together..

Congressional Democrats are endorsing a bipartisan coronavirus relief bill and calling on Republicans to work on a compromise. MPR's Kelsey's now reports move is a significant shift for Democrats who previously focused on a much larger package. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer are endorsing a $908 billion bill that is being framed as an interim patch. It's the first time the two top Democrats have embraced legislation smaller than the $2.2 trillion bill that passed the House in October. The legislation includes money for states, small businesses and people who have lost jobs during the pandemic. Republicans rejected that proposal when it was first announced, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he is focused instead on a smaller relief package that can win support from President Trump. But Democrats are asking Republicans to work with them to reach a compromise in hopes of passing a bill before the end of the year. Kelsey Snell NPR NEWS Washington U. S. Health officials say the best way to stay safe during the holiday season. Is to stay home, the officials say. For those who ignore that advice, testing before and after any trip should be mandatory.

"Yeah that's wonderful how does your uncomfortable ness around crowds affect performing live you know what I love it I can't quite explain it and maybe a and eventually I will come to hate it but I think there's something about having a stranger say that they've touched you touch them that is a very fulfilling for me and it's as simple as when Rachel said that she wanted to sing with you did you start writing pieces specifically for her you know I think I started off just sort of writing Rachel is talking about like learning Ella Fitzgerald and learning serve on and I think I was like very committed to the idea that I should be very pure and right for people of the era and so I was writing Sinatra songs and fats Waller songs and Billie Holiday songs and Peggy Lee's songs and I think that's how I did it for a long time and we certainly sing a lot of those songs but I think alone at last is a song for Rachel and and I think we have a song called without a thought for my heart which I definitely wrote with Peggy Lee in mind but with also knowing that Rachel doesn't sing like Peggy Lee very often and that I think she would kill it singing like Peggy Lee kind of in a vulnerable whispering soft space and it took us awhile to get to that place in the recording studio where she felt comfortable doing it but it's everything I I dreamed of when I was writing that song and it's not exactly what you would think of as a racial price song but I think it's like exactly when I think of as as an ideal interpretation well it's been such a pleasure to talk with you guys and I'm gonna ask you to do one more song and the read this is a song that you just mentioned which was without a thought from my heart you said this is a song that you wrote thinking about Peggy Lee yeah she has a very tender very quiet way of singing that is incredibly all hers and it's my platonic ideal of what romantic female crooning as so yeah that's I wrote it with that idea why don't we hear it but before we do I just want to thank you both so much for coming on the show Rachel furry thank you very much for being on fresh air thank you thank you very much.

But I got an Email yesterday from ruby bishops great granddaughter, and she told me that ruby now has dementia and she's living in assisted living, and they just moved her in. So they're selling your house, and they need to have an estate sale and all the money that goes from the estate sale is going to help with her care. So I wanna play you part of my feature that I played when this came out so you can get an idea of ruby. And then I'll tell you the details of how you can support the family coming two years. Have you been working in playing piano and singing I can't count that for a long time really Bishop is one of the few remaining Seattle jazz legends. She grew up on a farm in eastern Washington. And was the first African American baby. Born in Thurston county, and she was born with long piano, playing fingers and a bug to perform this is when I was six years old as making a lot of money say and dancing. There's would come down all kinds of money from the grandstands and more than eighty years later. She's still performs at vetoes on Seattle's first hell week. I work Saturdays and Sundays and love every minute of it. Gosh, it's fun and her friend and protege. Larry Napp says it's always something to see some performers perform for people that ruby connects with the people. Connects if people are enjoying her the songs just roll out of her because she really does feed off the audience. Don't you think I watched? Ruby grew up playing music and eventually started school at the university of Washington. Let me take music in college. She wanted me to be a pharmacist. And I didn't like any of the science. I wanted to play music, and so I took off and never looked back because I didn't want to be a pharmacist married one. But I didn't want to be one. And then she started to meet some of the great. So I started studying.
