With billows and blasts from choirs and orchesters
Buskers and talkers
Big bands and squawkers,
the Stork Club has retained its qualities of decaying elegance and dwindling significance since the late 1950s.

Options June 21, 2020: Lalo's Eighty-Eight
An unannounced wing-ding for Argentinian composer, pianist, arranger, and conductor Lalo Schifrin, celebrating his 88th birthday today. A look at his childhood in Buenos Aires as a prodigy, his miraculous exit to Paris to study at the Consevatoire, his triumphant return to Argentina, and subsequent emigration to New York. Schifrin made his mark in film music, but is perhaps lesser known as a jazz musician and composer who wrote a masterwork for Dizzy Gillespie - we'll hear the whole Suite! Sweet!!

Has ever a harpsichord been so rocked?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:13pm Doug Schulkind:

I played an Albert Ayler track on Friday with harpsichord. But it did not rock such as that.
  1:13pm Dean:

In fact, yes, the harpsichord is rocked more frequently than you'd imagine. See, e.g., the recordings on Finlandia by Jukka Tiensuu. Then there's the 34CD Scott Ross traversal of Scarlatti's sonatas, some of which most definitely rock.
  1:16pm Dean:

Did Schifrin score this music for Peter Weiss's play, The Persecution and Assassination of Jean-Paul Marat as Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton Under the Direction of the Marquis de Sade?
Avatar 1:17pm TDK60:

Dean, You won't believe it. I saw Marat Sade when a young teen. I was pleasantly shocked.

Who said this, not of Marat/Sade, but of a contemporaneous British "drama of cruelty"? (Hint: Hitchens wrote about it many years later.)

"The theater is concerned, whether in the deepest tragedy or the lightest comedy...with the study, understanding and recognition of that most dreaded and dangerous eccentricity in the human design, the tripartite conspiracy between the sexual, the excretory and the cruel."

Never knew about this Dissection album. Great title, heh..
  2:29pm Dean:

From the Jan. 22, 1967, review of the Dissection record by Louise D. Stone in WaPo: Schifrin "proves one thing with this record. Music doesn't have to be psychedelic, 'by chance' or '12-tone' to be interesting or exciting!"

Good one, Dean!!
Avatar 2:38pm hyde:

i'm down an internet rabbit hole reading about the harpists on some of these records. Ann Mason Stockton played on 800 soundtracks and is on Beach Boys records, but Catherine Gotthoffer is on over 2000 recordings including the Singin' in the Rain soundtrack and records by Julie London and Glen Campbell
Avatar 2:42pm hyde:

wait, no it was Dorothy Remsen who played with the Beach Boys. I deeply regret the harpist misinformation i have conveyed

Hyde, I wanna follow you down that bunny-hole! Sounds alluring!!

Dissection was nominated for a Grammy in '67 for Best Original Jazz Composition. Assuming it didn't win...

I think I'll take up smoking the pipe and call myself Donald Twain

If...you take the D. Twain...you won't end up....in Harlem...

That same year Brookmeyer's ABC Blues was nominated in the same category.

It's been a fun birthday party to stumble into, had no idea. Happy 88th Lalo.
  2:51pm Dean:

As I figured, Ellington won in '67, but Schifrin won in the same category in '65 and '66!

Thanks everybody in the Club esta noche. It was really fun to research and prepare this baby. What a truly extraordinary writing talent, and fascinating life-story. Thanks,

Speaking of rocking harpsichords, 1967 was the year of the debut release of Mariano & the Unbelievables.
