He recorded about three different times. Each time he elevated the personnel who accompanied him on that song, and the song demonstrates how beautifully his vocal line could rise above the orchestration. I heard all the recordings, but I'm so involved in listening to what Net was saying. I tend to forget that he's being accompanied by these strings on these horns, and they but I know they're there, but they don't interfere on so I'm a free sample frame to kids from 1 to 92. Although it's been said many times many ways. Merry Christmas Mama, too. He was always singing in the moment. That's what his voice and his interpretation was about. Good jazz phrasing.

The chorus goes straighten up and fly right and this most certainly applies today to how we all should act but flying is an airline passenger allen. We all know that life is an airline passenger in. The twenty first century can be stressful. Health concerns new regulations. Unruly fellow passengers and flight delays can be nerve racking for any traveler. But remember that the pilots and flight attendants are there to get you to your destination safely and everything they do is for your benefit in fact. Did you know that there are federal regulations. Bat actually prohibit passengers from interfering with crew members. Yeah that's right. Violating these regulations can result in hefty fines and we mean hefty all excellent points dominate after years of decline incidents of unruly passengers unfortunately spiked twenty eighteen. And from twenty twenty. Two twenty one. They've had record numbers largely because passengers failed to listen to flight attendants directions about the new mask policy in january. Twenty twenty one. faa administrator. steve. Dixon signed an order directing zero tolerance policy against unruly airline passengers in the wake of recent troubling incidents. Recently we've seen a disturbing increase in incidents where airline passengers have disrupted flights with threatening or violent behavior. These incidents have stemmed both from passengers refusals to wear masks and from recent violence at the us capitol. This dangerous behavior can distract disrupt and threatened crew members safety functions and as a former airline captain. It's extremely concerning to me. And i know it's equally concerning to the airline cockpit and cabin crews whose primary responsibility is to ensure the safety of all passengers.

For folks who aren't already fans, and they'll get here an idea of your wide vocal range for our actives, really, and maybe even more expansive range in terms of musical genres. So this is three songs by other artists that You have performed life. Like a five burning beyond control. Wildest, slow, Johnny. Who is John Lewis, please tell me your mind. I will never do nothing for nobody. No time. Okay, I'm gonna go home now and just play your music for the rest of the show. Um, no, I wish I could. So that was While this love by Nat King Cole, the folk ballad Only West and Jim Crow era vaudevillian Bert Williams Signature song, Nobody Little exception. Those three is there a common thread there for you. Um, well, I'm singing them. But other than that, I think I think all three songs surprised me, and that's what attracted me to them. Uh, You know, a song like, Oh, Me. Woz is it's a murder ballad Wildest love is this uh, this song about all the different places that love can take us The wild places, and nobody is this. Really incredible, comic tragic comic masterpiece by the great Bert Williams. It's a song about caricature and stereotype and Identity and lack. The feeling of lack. So, um, so I don't know. I think there's a yearning in all three songs. I really am drawn toe. That feeling of yearning Listeners would play a little more Cecile McLorin Salvant music before we go out in this segment, But I guess to what? You were just saying you don't turn away from the racism and misogyny in our past. You see what you're doing is transformative or more simply trying to make sure we don't forget. I think maybe there's a little bit of both. I have something in me that I really love to share for gotten gems with people whether it's in music film our visual arts. But I do like how it makes us question. I do like how looking at different eras, different cultures sort of make a question our own and how it rubs up again. Our own values and are in our own way of life. I see that you also do visual art. What do you do? I make really big drawings on silk on breuder drawings of all kinds of things, um, on silk organza, so there's kind of large scale textile works. And I do a little bit of animation. I'm actually working on a feature length animated film, which, if we make it will be the first animated feature film directed by a black woman. Wow. On guy. See that on Instagram? That's Shameful that that would be a first at this point, right, isn't it? But I see on instagram that you've offered a line drawing for other people to color in You know what can people go do and participate in Yeah, I really like doing things collaboratively and seeing where people take my drawings and even my songs. I really want to start writing. Songs for other people, too, because so far it's mostly been knee singing my own songs, but there's something really exhilarating about hearing your music or seeing your work in the hands of someone else. Awesome And you do write your own songs as well will point out the medley. We played Woz of of older works Do they range as widely as the genres that you choose from from outside to sing? I think so. I mean, not sure, but I do. I was brought up in a really eclectic household.

Remember, how I talked about how she was being regarded well by the upper crust and the white audiences and everything well that started to change a little bit in the nineteen sixties because as it turns out, it was an active time for the civil rights movement. And while she'd always had strong feelings about this. She kind of suppress them in her art reluctant to get have it get in the way sharing that chain that changed dramatically in the nineteen sixties. So got four four songs listed that. We're known for her to be famous in that period. Nineteen sixty three after Medgar Evers was assassinated and the church bombing killed four girls in Birmingham, Alabama. She wrote a song became this other wanna call it or anthem, but probably most recognized protest song Mississippi goddamn. Yes. Yes. That's that song as a real punch to the gut. It is. Absolutely. Yeah. And and and and she'll interject a little bit of humor along the way that you thought I was kidding. So that was I call that one of the beginning because it was banned on the radio and a lot of places. So was four women which was a song about African American archetypes brought on by society, the society, which they were living on a lot of people thought it was a racist song because she was speaking to some of the stereotypes that had been present in song literature, you know, about descendants of slaves and people biracial people not being able to fit in a beautiful song. But but misunderstood. Yeah. She was friends with the playwright Lorraine. Hanes bury her most. Yes, we do in the sun raising the sun. So in hens berry of raisin in the sun died in nineteen sixty five she was only thirty four they were friends throughout this period. And she wrote a song called to be young gifted and black which is which is often a description used for Nina Simone herself. And and after Martin Luther King junior's assassination her based player. Greg Taylor wrote a tune called y parentheses the king of love is dead. She then performed believe at festivals in the time that followed. So this marked the period where society basically start to turn on her for being a person with a character and beliefs and. Yeah. No. You can't have opinion. Initially, Actually, if if you're you're woman. if you're black bomb. Yeah. Exactly. And so her fame and presence in the United States decrease. It also turned out that she wasn't paying her taxes.

All right. Tell people what we're going to be doing. We'll take a break in dive into it after the break. Okay. I think it's a subject that that folks might might like at this holiday season when friends get together and family members get together or you think about the time that you spent over the years with with family and friends at holiday time what we're going to be talking about is is really a couple of things stories from our lives. And and I broken it down into into these two related subjects stories that have been passed down to you. Stories you've heard it might be from childhood. It might be as an adult stories from your mother or your father from your grandparents from your from uncle or aunts or odds. However, you say it. Stories that family lower that has been passed along to you during the course of your life. Now, these could be what do you like very small stories, very little kinds of stories. Maybe a funny little story that you heard as a child from from your mother, your father, or a grandparent or they could be very significant storage things. You were told when you were growing up in the sort of family lore kind of realm. Either stories from the family itself war stories about say a relative going off to war. It could be very significant stories are relative coming home from war. They could be stories that mean a great deal to you. And that have stayed with you, the second part is the stories that you have told overtime or the stories that you will tell your fairly sure that you will tell the story. Two other people people you love to your stories that you'll tell your friends. In some instances. They may be the same stories that were passed down to you as a child that you're still telling these stories kind of the the continuation of family history. So on the one hand, we're talking about stories you received either in childhood or adulthood. That might tell us something about your family history. Maybe in a personal way a meaningful way. Can also the stories that. Means something to you that have taken place in your life, and that you passed on to others, or you are sure you will continue to pass onto others Morgan has a wonderful story that he told me about about about his mother that I think he'll be telling soon, but the stories.

"One of the handful of romantic hits for nat king cole zenith as a crooner for capitol records and while the songs themselves you know are sort of average what's around them is extraordinarily like nelson riddle's writing and of course nat king cole's own impeccable performance the precision of his diction the musicality of his singing he was after all a great musician and he owned this material and he encouraged this material because he also did standards and he could knock out a cole porter with the best of them but the he could these could be his songs and so he happily conceded to the pop market and succeeded by just being excellent and that oblas him fell was one of those as was the one before it answer me sung by bryan ferry on a record call taxi but that's original very different still enough to maybe have put a bee in the bonnet of teenage paul mccartney folks have made something through the years of a similarity between mccartney's own yesterday and answer me because of the use in rhyme and the way they fall in the stanza of the words yesterday and here to stay and the cadence of it close maybe not a cigar maybe a cigar but there'll be no diving for this cigar in any case here is yesterday in the hands of the fellow who turned his nose up at it first but came around to it some years later yes oh seen so far oh really yes there's a shot oh yes suddenly why oh i don't know wouldn't i said something esther yes love was such an easy hi oh two said something yes yes was such an we game now place in yesterday yes yes to where are we going three i can hardly mixed emotions faultless after all try to false showing me meaning of success well well.
