StreetcredMusic: Songs For Fall, "Autumn In New York" With Elia Bastida

"Autumn in New York" is a jazz standard composed by Vernon Duke in Westport, Connecticut in the summer of 1934. It was written without a commission or for a specific show, but was offered by Duke to producer Murray Anderson for his Broadway musical Thumbs Up! which opened on December 27, 1934 (and closed in May 1935) and was performed by J. Harold Murray.

 Many versions of the song have been recorded over the years by numerous musicians and singers. The only version to achieve chart success as a single in the USA was that by Frank Sinatra which reached No. 27 in 1949.

Jazz versions have been performed by Charlie Parker, Billie Holiday, Bing Crosby, Stan Kenton, Sarah Vaughan, Sheila Jordan, Bill Evans, Ahmad Jamal, and Salvador Sobral. The song was also recorded by Jo Stafford, and Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald recorded it as a duet. Among the instrumental performances of the tune is a legendary version by guitarist Tal Farlow.

StreetcredMusic: This Generation Better Wake Up, Or Is It Too Late? With Bob Dylan

In the 1960s there was a battle of the generations, the younger movement prevailed. However through the 1970s and then with the Reagan administration, aided by fear driven rhetoric and massive dollar support from corporations, the top 10% regained control.

The 21st century is now totally driven by a few, who control, money markets, production and distribution of everything. That "Hard Rain" Dylan spoke of in 1962, is now flooding the planet.

Bob Dylan was a leader of the movement a Prophet, and a Poet. I place him at the top of the most respected musician of my lifetime.


StreetcredMusic: They Can't Take That Away From Me. George and Ira Gershwin

 "They Can't Take That Away from Me" is a 1937 popular song with music by George Gershwin and lyrics by Ira Gershwin. It was introduced by Fred Astaire in the 1937 film Shall We Dance.

Fred Astaire with Ginger Rogers
 Our romance won't end on a sorrowful note, though by tomorrow you're gone. The song is ended, but as the songwriter wrote, 'the melody lingers on'. They may take you from me, I'll miss your fond caress, but though they take you from me I'll still possess....

George and Ira Gershwin
