Instant flashback when I hear Renny's Riot.

Great theme tune! Remember that rock is just an exotic offshoot of the jazz tradition and that Chuck Berry appears in Jepsen - the first modern jazz discography. I know this because Ron Sweetman loaned me his copies. Didn't Miles Davis say that rock.n roll was just boogie-woogie? But then I played Perry Como on Rabble Without A Cause...hope you will play some bobby womack some time - and how about Mike Garson's free jazz piano solo on "Aladdinsane" - when the baritone sax erupted in "Indian Giver" a big fat smile erupted on my face - and how I needed that, you've no idea - so all in all an excellent and unexpected selection of choice cheese - love the delmonas with that peter gunn riff - dam somehwhere I have a "Peter Gunn" theme list - let me know if that would interest ya!

Renny - playing catch-up. First of all - have not heard the Scarlet Drops in forever - but what a blast-off. That HAS to be the theme tune - "Renny's Riot" - perfect! I used to amuse Ron Sweetman with my theory that all rock music was essentially an exotic off-shoot of the jazz tradition. Your approach confirms that for me. The fact that Chuck Berry appears in Jepsen - the first modern jazz discography serves to confirm that also. As Duke Ellington observed - there are on;y two types of music: good music and bad music. I love Duke. Man that baritone sax in "Indian Giver" just planted a big smile on my face. What a cool Christmas Record. You get into a feisty groove - "Compared to What" is great - I think that is on Roberta Flack's debut album - another good version but very different. Loved the blenders/the a-bones/the raunch hands - what an inspired set! Funny how the field holler got appropriated into crass mainstream rock - the big anthemic moments at the stadium gigs with butane lighters aloft all engaging in a mass field holler - volunteered slavery as roland kirk put it.

I'll have to play Chuck Berry's version of the swing classic, "How High The Moon.", for you. I've got some very early Bobby Womack that I promise I will play one day. That Delmona's song "Peter Gunn Locomotion" is included on that "Single Minded - The Best of the Big Beat Singles" compilation, It's great!
