GERM on ZOOM: August 11, 2021

What do we hear at the Golden Era Recorded Music project? Simply any and all music on Planet Earth from 1948 to 1988! Join the journey!


Hear the show LIVE at our shop 2-3 pm Sat, 153 MAPLE STREET, GF Hear our HIGH PERFORMANCE LP player system, $499 complete.


Tonight we will start with the dance/jazz orchestras of 2 great New York hotels in 1958; the PLAZA and DUKE ELLINGTON plus the ROOSEVELT and LARRY ELGART. Both bands replaced the Prohibition era orchestras from the 1930's, grown a bit tired. D and L still thrill today!


The final movement of DEBUSSY'S LA MER (THE SEA) will lead us to...


Two TOTALLY ORIGINAL talents from Latin America: SILVESTRE REVUELTES of Mexico and YMA SUMAC of Peru (or Brooklyn?). There is nothing like these two!


The biggest hit by AMERICA will lead us to a serenade for guitar and mandolin by Gustav Mahler, as gracious and lovely as last week's waltz parody was ominous. Go figure!


We send out a link for the Zoom meeting every Wednesday by email! Please contact us and let us know if you'd like to be added to the mailing list.


See you all at 7 pm TONIGHT!
