Playlist for Sunday, October 18, 2015: So Random

Finally.  Broadway (the real one) did NOT want to release me from its clutches this past weekend. I saw Something Rotten!  Well, not that rotten...actually, it was all pretty damn good, with the exception of Times Square, which seems exponentially brighter and busier than I ever remember it.  But it was great to be back in the city, raising toasts (and blisters), singing along with Brian D'Arcy James's Nick Bottom (to the annoyance of my seatmates), sampling ethnic food that one canNOT get in upstate New York, and having just a HELLUVA time.

Now back to reality: This Sunday is Jazz 90.1 Pledge Drive Sunday!  Where we plead/beg/kneel on rice, to raise dough for non-profit Jazz Radio! So with all our chat, we may not get to all of these wonderful songs...or we may get to more, so the words Random, Surprising, Disconnected, and Free For All come to mind.  Apologies ahead of time.  One total newbie: Hamilton! It will come on like hip hop, it will make you say "Has Kim lost the few marbles she still owns?" But hang with it, O Ye of Little Faith! It's just New Broadway...another generation.

Also heads up for Bernadette's rendition of "Send in the Clowns," accompanied by the composer, Stephen Sondheim, himself.  Peter Lorre in a "Siberia" trio. And Shirley Temple on the same playlist as Kinky Boots.

So enjoy the Random.  And give us a call. Jazz 90.1 could use your contribution, the best "standing ovation" 2 On The Aisle can get. :)
