The Amazing Keystone Big Band

Belgium 2018 [no label, 1CD]
Jazz Middelheim. Live at Park Den Brandt, Antwerp, Belgium; August 11, 2018. Very good radio broadcast.

Disney melodies, in whatever language, are engraved in our collective memory and passed on from generation to generation. Even today, there’s no shame in singing along loudly to “Beauty and the Beast” and “Under The Sea”. Although Disney princes might be a bit outdated, Disney continues to inspire all of us. With their project Jazz Loves Disney, the 17-member The Amazing Keystone Big Band from France reinvents the most beautiful Disney classics. On the Jazz Middelheim stage, the delightful voices of Selah Sue, Ben l’Oncle Soul, Hugh Coltman, China Moses (daughter of Dee Dee Bridgewater!) and Myles Sanko will complete the party.

  3. 23 Dec 1968
    It was Led Zeppelin’s first journey to the United States
    The members of Led Zeppelin enter the United States for their first American Tour, and we stayed at one of my old Yardbird haunts – The Chateau Marmont. I had been used to touring the States with The Yardbirds over the previous two years, but for first timers Robert Plant, John Bonham and John Paul Jones, it was not going to take long for them to be initiated in to the ways of the US.

  4. I have always associated “…Wish Upon a Star” with Pinocchio…

  5. An absolute abomination. An insult to the true legends of Jazz to even say the J word when describing this noise . A big double thumbs down from me .

    By Smashmouth on Dec 24, 2018

  6. They got some brothers and sisters here and blacks are the only true Jazz artists but they got some honkys here to . Honky whites ain’t no Jazz masters . This ain’t that good .
