Mahalia Jackson, for the Last Night of the Decade.

I love Bert Stern’s film Jazz on a Summer’s Day, even writing about it here, and thought, what better way to close out a decade than with the last musical act from the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival, Mahalia Jackson performing “Everybody Talkin’ ‘Bout Heaven” and “Didn’t it Rain,” and then closing out the festival with the Lord’s Prayer. In many ways, her performance seems like a very appropriate close to 2009, and a wonderful way to ring in 2010.

Harpo Marx plays Rachmaninov. Vigorously.

SWV’s “Right Here.”

I’m a big softie when it comes to early-90s music, am pretty enamoured with Michael Jackson remixes, and know I’m not alone in this.

Jackie Mittoo’s “Drum Song”.

I’ve been listening to a lot of old school ska dubs lately, so I thought I’d post some Jackie Mittoo, my favorite (and perhaps the most famous) organist from Studio One. Here’s a good anthology of his music, though, as per most of the Amazon purchases I suggest, it costs close to $40 and only ships within one to two months.

Hot Voodoo.

From Josef von Sternberg’s 1932 Blonde Venus, Marlene Dietrich singing “Hot Voodoo”. It’s quite ahead of its time, wouldn’t you say?
