Coffee ! Youve got me totally flummoxed Re;Today's Music.Who Is It? It sounds a bit Cuban (might explain Che's Picture) But who,
s n-yôr
is playing it?It's foot-tapping fine!

Well Sir, I am "speechless" after hearing this pulsating blues composition, and I found myself quickly responding to the infectious rhythm, which has the kind of hypnotizing allure that Ravel's "Bolero" does in classical music. I am assuming this written by Harold Arlen (who of course was immortalized for "The Wizard of Oz" in 1939) and Johnny Mercer.

Michael you have outdone yourself my man.

On another note, I thought this lineup here of "newspaper films" in a local Manhattan Film Forum Festival would interest you. I'm planning on making a few appearances, including this Sunday. Dee Dee would LOVE this.

tony: The smokey bandits, 1st release, this year. The whole cd is well worth the purchase price.

sam: The Smokey Bandits are from Greece and this is from their 1st cd, which came out this year. And yes,other than the Big Clock, which we recently saw thanks to someone out there (?!) the others look like great fun. I'll be there in spirit! Thanks for stopping by!

hmmm. not sure if i like this, but i'll pass it along to my jazz playing son, maybe he'll get a kick out of it.

Skybridge Studios said...

...and the answer is ...YES.

Coffee Messiah said...

kimy: Hey, Thanks. Yes on both counts.

tom: Sorry to hear. I like all the time changes and that they play with film music a bit.

hello, friend.

Hey man, the pic is really nice but was wondering what, if anything, is the significance of the frog and little girl staring up at Che?

Coffee Messiah said...

naj: Hello and Thanks for stopping by. It has been a long time.

ks: Funny thing about any collage I make. I start with one item, play some music and there it is. I really can't tell you what you see ; (
Thanks for asking though.

maggie's garden said...

I agree...the art and the music... smoking hot!

Megan said...

We like it. The offspring thought of a scene like something from Oceans 11 - cutting back and forth between Clooney, Pitt, and the rest as they set up for the heist. Lots of walking down corridors and turning corners and such...

California Girl said...

that's quite a quote source, Jack Carson. He was usually cheerful and sometimes quite wicked. good one.

what are you up to these days Mr. Coffee?

A.Decker said...

First, great collage. Very visually arresting and interesting imagery.

B. I'm inclined to agree with Jack, but also can't help suspecting that something wonderfully otherwise is right before our very noses, vexingly veiled...

And lastly: What a groovy tune! That was great! Thanks for the link.

Coffee Messiah said...

shar: LU2!

j: Hey, Thanks!

mg: Thanks for taking a look/listen!

megan: Thanks and Oh Yeah!

cg: If I only knew ; (

decker: Hey there, long time. Thanks for driving by and leaving a comment. Hope all is well in your part of the states!
