"By a young muse named Mercedes. Join us all month long for fascinating stories of women who are drivers of creativity, inspiration, and artistic expression. Hello. From wonder media network, I'm Jenny Kaplan, and this is will manica. This month we're talking about muses. Women who were drivers of creativity and inspiration. Today we're talking about a legendary pop and jazz singer. She was known for her renditions of songs like fever and big spender. And her independent style inspired miss piggy, the Muppet. Let's talk about Peggy Lee. Peggy Lee was born Norma Dolores egg strum in Jamestown, North Dakota. She grew up during The Great Depression. Norma's mother died when she was four and her father remarried. Norma's stepmother repeatedly physically abused her. During such a difficult childhood, Norma often found comfort in music. She was constantly singing and listening to the radio. By the time she was a teenager, Norma had started singing on the radio herself. She had her own 15 minute weekly show that aired in valley city North Dakota. At 17, Norma was hired by the local radio station in Fargo. The program director Ken Kennedy gave her a new stage name, Peggy Lee. And he started paying her a dollar 50 per show. After a few years singing on local radio stations and fronting small bands, Peggy decided to try her luck in Hollywood. She drove to California and began singing at the dollhouse, a well-known restaurant in Palm Springs. The crowds at the dollhouse were usually noisy. But instead of trying to sing louder, Peggy would lower her voice, quieter and quieter with each song. The result captivated audiences and led Peggy to develop what would become her signature singing style. In 1941, Benny Goodman hired Peggy to sing for his band, the Benny Goodman orchestra. In the years they worked together, Peggy expanded her musical expertise. She started writing lyrics for songs and learned from other musical greats like Billie Holiday. She later described her time with the Benny Goodman orchestra as a wonderful circus every night. Peggy's time working with Benny Goodman brought her national prominence. In 1943, Peggy retreated from public life and married Dave barber, a member of Benny Goodman's orchestra. She gave birth to her only child, a daughter, later that year. But Peggy didn't stay out of the spotlight for long. Two years later, she joined Capitol Records as a solo artist. Her songs kept topping the charts, and soon she was a regular on late night television. She began experimenting with genre, blending jazz, pop, and Latin music. Peggy and Dave's marriage ended in 1951. In an interview decades later with the national inquirer, she said, it is always very difficult for a man to be married to a career girl. She's the one who gets all the attention. Regardless, Peggy always thought of Dave as her greatest musical collaborator and the love of her life. Throughout the 1950s, Peggy's fame grew. She collaborated on the score and soundtrack for Disney's lady and the tramp. And she voiced four of the characters. In 1955, her role in the movie Pete Kelly's blues earned her a best supporting actress Academy Award nomination. All the while she kept writing and recording music. She was the first woman to have top ten hits in three different decades. The 1940s, 50s, and 60s. By the 19 70s, Peggy was a household name. And that's when she became a Muppet. Sort of. In 1974, a puppet designer named Bonnie Erickson was looking for inspiration for a new character. It was for a TV special that Jim Henson was producing. Bonnie thought of Peggy Lee Bonnie's own mother had grown up in North Dakota, listening to Peggy on the radio. Bonnie saw Peggy as a very independent woman, just like the puppet she'd created. So she named the puppet miss piggy Lee. It was a joke, and an homage. In her television debut, the puppet miss piggy Lee was a minor side character. When the Muppet show premiered in 1976, piggy Lee moved into the spotlight. A dazzling blond with a dog obsession for Kermit the frog. Bonnie worried that Peggy Lee would take offense to the character, so she dropped the last name, and miss piggy was born. As miss piggy rose in prominence on the Muppet stage, Peggy was slowing down. By the late 1970s, she was living with the host of health problems, including diabetes, an inner ear disorder, and temporary blindness. But her ailing health didn't stop her. Even after having a double bypass heart surgery in 1985, she continued performing. She added a jeweled cane to her ensemble and saying sitting down. Peggy Lee died in 2002 at the age of 81. Over the course of her career, she helped write more than 200 songs. Made more than 700 recordings, and published more than 50 albums. Her legacy and small part also lives on through miss piggy. All.

"Just really when I don't like to speak over peg Lee. I did actually meet one. She was so nice to me. The opening, you can understand its attraction to a child's ear, can't you? Because it sounds like music and a fairytale. And it's only now I'm older that I'm going. Yes, these arrangers had heard Alban Berg. You know, they'd heard, like tell us Calvin Burke, tell us, for those of you who had had Viennese music and some of the arrangers were very, very conversant with music from Vienna and I know that now because I got drawn into finding where all these sounds, but the use of the harp and the this is not like this is more like FiLMiC music, isn't it? And a lot of film scores drew from well, write that off and tchaikovsky, but also chromatic music, which kind of suggests the shifting sands of fate. You know, in a story, swirling sort of harmonies. That's comes from Wagner and WC and this sort of stuff where it's not even clear what key they're in until the guitar comes in. It's really like Vietnamese music and not as extreme in its theory. It sounds very intellectual what I'm saying, but I'm not a musicologist. I just absorb this emotionally. So when I hear some of that, then these music post schomburg, I don't hear the intellectual therapy, I hear where it takes you in a dream. And just as this does, now, this song is like circled around. This song being you're my thrill. I can think of versions of it that I've loved, Peggy Lee, the next voice I would think of singing it would be Doris Day, who also sang it beautifully. Julie London sang it very beautifully. Billie Holiday, right? Billie Holiday, of course, she would sing this beautifully. One of the most beautiful vocal performances is Joni Mitchell's record from travel augment, then spend those arranged. But I'm a little biased here because I mean my wife recorded this song. And it's not just I'm not just playing, you know, want to play a little bit of this because it's the woman I love because I genuinely think that it's the most connected to the sense of what this sunk can mean since I was a child and herd Peggy Lee. It's very strange. It's a very strange contradiction to hear Peggy Lee when you didn't know anything about sexuality sensuality, yet you're here in a voice that pause is so it's such an almost erotic and definitely.

"Musician remember these people make it up It's really hard to do He had a sound and a sense of taste along with a terrific ability just to get along with people that made him really one of a handful of great jazz accompanists Let's listen to one of the collaborations and this is with the peerless Peggy Lee one of her last recordings my cringey at the piano and this is his arrangement of there'll be another spring Don't cry There another spring I know I was well done again and sing again So wait for me till then Oh my God that's amazing to hear What do you hear there that you want to draw our attention to today Well there's so much First of all that's Peggy Lee's song She was a great lyricist and she wrote those words to music by yubi Wheeler And you can hear the dialog that she and Mike renzi have I love you now they absolutely loved each other as collaborators and it's a call and response but Mike's she's never literal in his musical answers to Peggy's words He captures the sadness and the hope that's there in the lyric and in the music It's a conversation between close friends and the whole becomes greater than the sum of its parts And with his piano he's setting up the orchestral accompaniment that follows and develops the song even further What makes a great jazz accompanist You need a great ear an enormous knowledge of harmony and theory improvisational skills knowledge of the repertoire swing but then I called Aaron deal who's one of the best jazz accompanists around today He works with socio McLaren Salva and other singers And Aaron said the art of accompaniment can be summed up in three words So I said what three words He said put yourself last He said the whole idea is to make the singer sound better than they already do and that means keeping your ego in check which how shall I phrase it Not every first rate improviser can do But a great accompanist can make a song performance sound like it makes you go yeah yeah yeah that's the way it should sound right that's it Kevin I'm in heaven You know a great example is the Grammy Award winning collaboration I'm a Mike Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga from 2014 cheek to cheek Oh and up to come mountain and reach the highest peak Me too but it doesn't throw me half as much as dancing to cheat And I love to go out fishing in a river or a creek You knew Mike renji for decades I gather Tell us about what you learned from him how you work together What he was like you know we worked together in a variety of settings over the years I was mostly working in these different shows as the director and the writer Mike as the musical director and accompanist.

"She's a marionette a beautifully sculpted puppet with enormous ears and unnervingly plaintive expressive features. Her name is annette and she's been born with an extraordinary gift. A net is an operatic tragedy written in big loops as well as in some very repetitive songs. And henry may love each other. Just that much like those little naked statuettes from the nineteen seventies who profess their adoration with outstretched arms. But it's not enough to save them. Henry's love for an doesn't make him stronger and kinder but angrier and meaner drivers height and braun are used to menacing effect here. He's never been so believably unlikable which is certainly an achievement. If it's the kind of thing you want to see and becomes a victim of his fury little annette becomes a pawn of fourth party and loyal piano accompanist played with resonant tenderness by simon helberg holds a lonely secret. There's a lot of movie here. Ron mail and russell male of sparks and the subjects have edgar wright's recent and holy delightful documentary. The sparks brothers have concocted a sprawling mansion of the story. There's always a new door opening almost inevitably into a shadowy room. You might be hesitant to look into. The ending is set up to be poignant and some may find it so but i felt so worked over by the movies. Excessive self awareness that even at the end of this extravagant and sometimes impressive sprawl. I found myself echoing. Peggy lee is that all there is the males have been making music as sparks for some fifty years. They're work tends to be clever and lively and laced with bone dry humor but they're also at times guilty of being arch perhaps to take in with their own wicked wordplay and annette is overall to knowingly affected in its deliberate style ization. It's weird all right. But this is a cert of weirdness. As opposed to organic weirdness. It also suffers from a maddening. Lack of clarity even within its own world of opera fairytale logic in one musical number. A group of women come forward with me to style allegations against henry. But this bombshell is dropped and then forgotten meanwhile ends feelings largely remain opaque. And it's not cody yards fault. She spends a great deal of time staring moonlight from the window of her limo. A half eaten apple nearby. She's having feelings clearly but they're detached from her. Being like a cartoon voice bubble it could be that the male brothers and karash just aren't the best fit maybe their idiosyncrasies spark an unintentional dissonance. The movie's opening number. So may we start is the strongest and it's thrilling. We seek harass in his daughter nostra as well as ron and russell mail and a few of the story supporting players spilling out of a recording studio and into the street where they're joined by cody yard driver in helberg just for now. We're seeing these performers as versions of themselves if not quite themselves and they're singing his hearty and definitive they're warming us up for the show ahead promising great wonders to come as they set up for us that figurative fourth wall we all love so much but nothing in a net as ambitious and sometimes gorgeous as it is comes close to the haunting beauty of harass his last movie the twenty twelve holy motors in that film the astonishing acrobatic actor dennis lavar played a mysterious peddler of dreams and sometimes nightmares tooling around the most beautiful paris imaginable in a white stretch limo the samaritan department store once grand but recently shattered at the time of the movies filming had its own supporting role looming over the proceedings like a mournful grey ghost. What is holy motors about. Literally damn divino beyond that. It's about all the things we ask of of movies. Blessings that if we're lucky we actually receive a net makes a similar promise of emotional richness but no matter how much of themselves the filmmakers have poured into it..

Way too early to make predictions on all of this, as Roger Ebert used to tell me every year, he's you know, you really cannot make credible predictions on this. Until a couple of days before the actual event because there is so much politics that will happen now and literally campaigns by these movies and movie stars. To try to win their awards.

"The world's worst hit records. You voted for it, but not enough to make it into the top 10. That was a big hit in 1969. Lieber and Stoller wrote it, and Peggy Lee was probably like a number one or number two on the adult contemporary charts played incessantly. But even on top 40 stations that depressing tome was was huge. The seventies gave us so much we're about to, by the way, get to get to number four and let me let me review where you are so far, Number five of the world's worst hit records is voted on by you was David, Get us Run! Joey, Run six. Charlene. I've never been to me seven was Disco Duck. Rick Dees. Eight Horse with no name America nine, honey, Bobby Goldsboro and 10. Seasons in the sun, Sherry Jack, So we got four more counting backwards will get to number four here in a moment, but a certain nod to the seventies, the seventies. And many people really looked at the demise of top 40 radio for a lot of reasons at that point in time, But nothing was more to blame. As far as the guilty party, then the music well, for one thing we had people trying to make a statement. Which, by the way, is always bad in music. Yeah, and that always accounts for votes on the on the world's were set records. But on one side of the story was Helen Reddy with I am Woman Different from the I am Woman that Peggy Lee did in the sixties, of course. Yeah. I am woman. Hear me roar in the first two big to ignore and I know too much to go back to protect me. So meanwhile, while she's shouting about being woman here was Paul Anka, maybe setting back the movement by decades. Yes, you're heaven, my baby. Like an Oreo coat. Sounds more like a dry cleaner having my baby. But along the way we said, how much you love having my baby. What a lovely way will say what you think. Good old maid. I can see it.

"Okay let's dissect that song for me because it's got this great swing the style jig musical vibe but then this incredibly modern lyric about you know the the mile high club yeah let's get into so as you're writing a song like that how are you thinking about this is the sort of postmodern approach well it's funny that you say that it's post modern or even modern because I feel like jazz songs are dirty and I I think they they a lot of them have a lot of humor to them and a lot of sexiness to them and and inotes sometimes I I mean I guess they're probably usually little more masked than that but for me I was just trying to write something that I thought Ellen Louis could definitely saying and I I I that's the way I hear that song I can totally see that as an Allen movie due out and I I think they would even be into it I I don't think they would object to that sort of thirty minutes of with a saucy as you're writing this music what is it about Rachel's voice that really works with this style of music well she understands all the idioms and you know just like the little nuances of of style but also she can sing in all sort of different kinds of styles I'm not interested in having a band that that is like an Ella Fitzgerald cover band or or or trying to to occupy that space in a modern world I I really want us to be able to sing songs that are like the mills brothers and like Sinatra and you know like you know all all all all kinds of Peggy Lee you know they're so it's such a variety of voices that exist in that time and Rachel really understands what songs Snead what and and this I'm pretty proud of this record for its diversity of sounds both from the way we the instrumentation we used on different songs but also just Rachel's nuances my guess are Rachel price and bill read before I let you go would you mind doing one more song yeah this is due friends fall in love two men in but it was something and when we found them to sure please check the fridge when friends fall in love this was now blazes within that's once was Jim burns days to follow it was an S. and P. five has become a grand two friends this was now blazes with J. burns hotter day from as friends with the phone to get the two French that.
