Sharon L. West House Track August 23, 2015 Sunny Song of the Day

Sun, 08/23/2015 - 04:18



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AsbgObsiOWc 

Mr. Russell Booker who this Deep-house track was produced along with Sharon

Published on May 9, 2012The original Sunny was sung by Bobby Hebb. The Sunny track is now one of the most recorded songs of all times. It ranks in the top 20 songs of the century. Here's a House track version sung by Sharon L. West and the beginning of a series of Jazz House and originals released by her late 2012

Born and raised as a child in Harlem, NY, Sharon L. West is an 8 octave singer being pegged to become a recording wonder that will soon be on her way to staying around for a long time as a progressive artist, musician, producer and vocalist. She has been known in the Tri-state area as a singer who uses vocal arrangements as rhythm instruments drawing vibrations from the floor and walls as historic great singers like Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald did in cathedral type auditorium with dome shaped ceilings that were made to catch and deliver the sounds of compelling and emotionally charged musicianship. As a matter of fact, many world re-known jazz musicians and fans world-wide have compared her voice when she digs deep into a soul mode to sing jazz compositions to that of the old saxophones that backed legendary singers.

Sharon was born to pure Cherokee and West-Indian American parents from a land once frequently visited by cruise ships from around the world that housed various top recording studios; one of which Mick Jagger owned and operated for his band for many years. Her entire family is from Montserrat, which is best known for being a 15-minute getaway oasis from the more commonly known Antigua. Montserrat was nearly totally destroyed by a 400-year old dormant volcano that erupted in 2005. Only the Northern area known as the "safe zone" housing less than 1000 people exists.

“My mother’s parents migrated and lived their lives out in America, but my father’s parents, well, their graves now lay under twenty feet or more of volcanic ash.”

Her favorite genre to sing is R&B and she would love to be part of creating a new flavor of opera. Ms. West is currently taking a Master songwriting class at a New York college where she has been an Honor Roll student for the past two years. She is re-learning classic guitar, trying her hands at the bass again which she played as a child and is very interested in learning both the kora and cello in her lifetime.

“They are commending instruments and the sounds of them both touch me throughout my nervous system. Just beautiful.”

Ms. West spends time daily creating beats and writing songs using her voice, piano and or DAW programs. She is strong in Logic Studio and on her way of mastering Pro-tools in part with the help of Mr. Russell Booker who this Deep-house track was produced along with Sharon; Russell was the maestro on this memorable remix and also plays all the instruments and arranged the Sunny R&B version on her Soft Moments cd that has classic jazz tunes and several originals written and produced by Sharon.

This duo’s first album together named “Late Night Laughter”, is being released on an independent label, Dreams On Tour Records, fall 2011. It will have various original and remix hit record renditions; maybe a surprise new artist or Russell on vocals. The first cd by Sharon L. West is called, “Soft Moments” and will be available here on cdbaby in just a few more weeks. It will be a collector’s item for there is a limited marked supply available in hard copy and for download.

Russell Booker’s credits also include being a graphic artist as well as a musician and producer who has worked with many R&B and club artists. In the 80's he worked with many top recording artists including Shannon while also briefly running his own label. The two are a great mix as Sharon worked as an A&R Director as a young adult right on the cusp of his own career. New and old fans can expect original tracks from these two whether in collaboration or separately, flavored with a blend of Rock and Roll, Jazz, R&B, Caribbean, Latin Tinge, Pop, Funk, today's and yesterday's classic Rhythm and Blues and Deep House Soul.

Ms. West and Mr. Booker have been reunited after a short hiatus from when he was a musician in her band several years ago before the parting of the band due in part to death of one of the members and an operation on one of the drummer’s hip. Yet these two knew it would be just a matter of time before they would come up with a special collection of songs to produce separately and together. Russell: “This is a musical union that is going to last; it already has.” Sharon: “This is a renewed collaboration long overdue.”

With singer Tanja Srednik I am playing acoustic covers (vocals and piano) and my band 'Freistil' is a party/wedding band.
Have fun! ;)

Live: Busch Stadium, St Louis http://www.beatlesbible.com/1966/08/21/live-busch-stadium-st-louis/

After performing their postponed concert in Cincinnati at midday, The Beatles flew 341 miles to St Louis, Missouri, where they performed one show at 8.30pm.

The concert took place at the Busch Stadium, and was seen by 23,000 people. The support acts were The Remains, Bobby Hebb, The Cyrkle and The Ronettes.



The show took place in heavy rain, with a makeshift shelter over the stage to protect the musicians, although water still dripped onto the amplifiers. It was this incident which finally convinced Paul McCartney that The Beatles should cease touring.

Did Lennon write "Rain" as a response to Hebb's "SUNNY" ? /Bobby Hebb plays Cincinnati; Beatles Cancel, August 20, 1966

Thu, 08/20/2015 - 05:42
Forty Nine Years Ago, Bobby Hebb performed "SUNNY" with the Remains in Cincinnati.

The Beatles, who would later write "Rain" - a counterpoint to "Sunny" - were rained out.

Rain, April 1966

The Beatles "Rain" music video
Rain was recorded on the "Paperback Writer"album on" 
April 14 1966
and it was released on May 30 1966 (US) & June 10 1966 (UK) 


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VKmJGXhSmaY
Remember, David Pike released "Sunny" in 1965, a year before it hit for Bobby Hebb.
Bobby was in the studio with Pike when the vibraphone instrumental was recorded for Atlantic Records' Jazz for the Jet Set lp.

Did John Lennon write "Rain" as a response to Bobby Hebb's "SUNNY" ???


The Beatles’ Cincinnati concert is postponed http://www.beatlesbible.com/1966/08/20/beatles-cincinnati-concert-postponed/The Beatles were due to have played an open-air show at Cincinnati's Crosley Field on this day. However, the promoter failed to provide a cover for the group, and heavy rain began shortly before they were due to take the stage.

The support acts on The Beatles' final tour were The Remains, Bobby Hebb, The Cyrkle and The Ronettes. The downpour began after each of the acts had completed their sets. The promoter originally insisted that The Beatles should perform, but they refused unless he could guarantee their safety.

In Cincinnati on August 20, torrential rain caused the cancellation of the show at Crosley Field Stadium, the first and only time this happened during The Beatles' touring years. The decision to put off the boys' appearance was taken when Mal [Evans] was thrown several feet across the stage while plugging into a wet amplifier. We were advised that touching any of the stage's rain-soaked electrical equipment could be lethal so Brian Epstein had no option but to call off the concert. http://www.icollector.com/Beatles-Crosley-Field-Concert-Ticket_i6749138

The support acts were The Remains, Bobby Hebb, The Cyrkle and The Ronettes. The Beatles' set for both shows consisted of 11 songs: Rock And Roll Music, She's A Woman, If I Needed Someone, Day Tripper, Baby's In Black, I Feel Fine, Yesterday, I Wanna Be Your Man, Nowhere Man, Paperback Writer and Long Tall Sally.

Meet the Beatles — Malden native John Lubinski did
But did you know there was a Malden resident who managed to run up on stage with the Fab Four that day? Do you wonder if the guy made it out of there alive? Well, former Malden resident John Lubinski is alive and well and living in Las Vegas.

Malden
Are you one of the lucky individuals who went to Suffolk Downs racetrack in Revere on August 18, 1966?
Did you hear longtime North Shore resident Bobby Hebb (now back in Nashville) sing his immortal classic, “Sunny,” along with “Crazy Baby,” Van McCoy’s “For You,” a cover of Darlene Love’s “Good Good Lovin,” and the classic “Got My Mojo Working” backed up by Boston’s very own Barry Tashian & The Remains?

Perhaps you’ve read Tashian’s book, “Ticket To Ride: The Extraordinary Diary of The Beatles’ Last Tour” (Dowling Press, 1997)?

If you were there on that magical point in history, you probably heard the Beatles perform songs like Chuck Berry’s 1957 hit, “Rock & Roll Music,” or Lennon/McCartney classics like “Day Tripper,” “Baby’s In Black,” “I Feel Fine,” “Paperback Writer,” “Nowhere Man” and more.

But did you know there was a Malden resident who managed to run up on stage with the Fab Four that day? Do you wonder if the guy made it out of there alive? Well, former Malden resident John Lubinski is alive and well and living in Las Vegas. The Observer has an exclusive interview with the Maldonian whose out-of-order activity way back when has made him a rather notorious footnote in Boston area Beatles lore.
A local daily newspaper article of the 1966 Suffolk Downs event leaves the readers hanging on the outcome of the daring young man who jumped the stage...it says he was handed “...into the clutches of six Boston policemen.”
Close call
“It caused a little bit of a riot where a lot of people were running for the stage or trying to get up there,” said Lubinski. “I ended up getting away. They put me in a police car, and I got out the other door. They were kind of distracted ...trying to stop the other people. I got out the door, ran to the fence, hopped over, wandered back into the crowd and got away.”
______________________________
 

Page 2 of 3 - “I miraculously found them again and we took the train home,” said Lubinski. “I was pretty excited...pretty jazzed up...as one girl told (documentary filmmaker) Erik Taros, I was holding court on the train.
“There were people on the train who wanted to touch me because I was onstage with the Beatles,” Lubinski reminisced.
Taros, a Swampscott resident known as “Dr. Beatle” for his many chats on radio about John, Paul, George and Ringo, was searching for Lubinski to chronicle the event in his movie about the Suffolk Downs show.
An audio of the Everett/Lubinski British interview from 1966 was posted on WBZ’s Web site as BZ host Dan Rea appears to have spoken with Beatle historians Cha-Chi Loprete and Erik Taros on December 9, 2008. Cha Chi is the longtime promotion man for WBCN, WZLX and now 98.5 the Sports Hub who also hosts “Breakfast with the Beatles” on WZLX, Sunday mornings at 8 a.m.
Lubinski told the Observer that he was on the computer and by accident found the December 2008 Podcast (a broadcast posted to the Web) of a John Lennon anniversary show/Beatles program, with Dan Rea, Taros and LoPrette.
“I heard the one minute clip with me from Kenny Everett,” he said.
And that’s how Lubinski and Taros got to connect for the upcoming film. Taros was searching quite awhile for John Lubinski, and the WBZ airing finally got them together.

The Beatles are coming
John Lubinski was born in Gardner but the family moved to Malden around the age of 1 since both his parents are from Malden. He lived on 19 Boston St. and attended Brown School in Malden for the first and second grade. Lubinski went to the Belmont School from the third to the sixth grade and then Lincoln Junior High. He attended high school outside of Malden. During his youthful years in Malden Lubinski played baseball.
And for music he listened to the radio: “I didn’t play an instrument, but I liked the Beatles from the moment I heard them.”
He was 17 when the concert happened in 1966.
“At the time I was working at American Aluminum Company on Eastern Avenue in Malden; about a month before I read in the newspaper that the Beatles were coming. I went with a couple friends from work.”
And when the Observer asked if it was a major event at the time, Lubinski replied in the affirmative: “Yeah; [and] it really didn’t register with me or [I didn’t] think about it, but that was the first concert I ever went to in my life. That’s kind of funny — ironic now. It never really registered with me until recently. 

What a way to start.”
__________________________________________

The aforementioned newspaper article referenced above is reprinted in the book “Ticket To Ride: The Extraordinary Diary of the Beatles Last Tour” with additional information from Judith Sims, editor of TeenSet magazine. On Page 56 of Ticket To Ride Sims’ article notes, “In Boston, a second young man made it to the stage; he first informed one of the English disc jockeys that he had managed to get past the barriers and guards to the stage area…”
Lubinski recalled that that was Kenny Everett, the pirate radio on-air personality. “Kenny Everett was interviewing me before I jumped onstage; I told him I was going to do it...he didn’t believe me. Right after that I made it up onstage, Kenny Everett went crazy.”
The Beatles were performing the Little Richard classic, “Long Tall Sally,” concluding their set, and after Lubinski got away he hooked up with the two friends he convinced to go to the show with him.

Brushes with history
Lubinski’s most recent brushes with history have been less eventful, more as a fan than a participant. In 2007 he went to 
 The Beatles “Love” show at the Las Vegas casino, the Mirage, “and they had The Beatle’s Fair at that same casino, I went to that too. Beatles fans from all over the country go there and they have all different events going on, films and people selling Beatles memorabilia. Different bands playing Beatles songs. I went to a similar Beatles event in L.A. about 15 years ago, but this was the first time they had it in Vegas, I believe.”
On The Beatles Cirque du Soleil LOVE show Lubinski is most enthused: “I enjoyed it. I love all the Beatles music. It’s the Beatles music (in the Cirque du Soleil show) ...they have so much of that going on that it is almost like a little too much...but overall it’s great.”

As for other Beatles-associated performances, the former Malden resident says he also attended a Ringo concert in San Diego about 10 years ago while living in that city.
But as for that historic Suffolk Downs concert, Lubinski said, 

“I remember Bobby Hebb singing the big song “Sunny,” which I like a lot.”
Lubinski noted that the response was huge for Hebb’s big hit of the Summer of 1966.
But what of the city where he was raised — he escaped the police at Revere Beach’s Suffolk Downs; has he escaped Malden as well?
“I still have two cousins that live in Malden; I just talked to one a couple of weeks ago. I was back there in 2005… I’ll be coming back.”

Tue, 08/18/2015 - 03:36
Live: Maple Leaf Gardens, Toronto, Canada http://www.beatlesbible.com/1966/08/17/live-maple-leaf-gardens-toronto-canada-3/ The sixth date of The Beatles' final tour took place at the Maple Leaf Gardens, Toronto. It was their only Canadian stop on the tour. Two concerts took place. The first took place at 4pm and was seen by 15,000 people, and the second began at 8pm and was attended by 17,000. The Beatles had played at Maple Leaf Gardens on two prior occasions, on 7 September 1964 and 17 August 1965.

August 16, + our Top 10 / 2015 Live: John F Kennedy Stadium, Philadelphia with THE BEATLES / BOBBY HEBB

Sun, 08/16/2015 - 22:09
Live: John F Kennedy Stadium, PhiladelphiaSeventh show, fifth date of the tour! The fifth date of The Beatles' final tour took place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where they performed one concert before around 20,000 people at the John F Kennedy Stadium.
The concert began at 8pm. The stadium had 60,000 seats available, but by this point in their career The Beatles were only able to sell around a third of tickets. They had previously played at Philadelphia's Convention Hall on 2 September 1964.
Support acts for the entire tour were The Remains, Bobby Hebb, The Cyrkle and The Ronettes. The show took place during the beginning of an electrical storm with near-constant lightning, but the rain held off until shortly after The Beatles left the stage.

http://www.beatlesbible.com/1966/08/16/live-john-f-kennedy-stadium-philadelphia/

The Beatles' standard set throughout the tour consisted of 11 songs: Rock And Roll Music, She's A Woman, If I Needed Someone, Day Tripper, Baby's In Black, I Feel Fine, Yesterday, I Wanna Be Your Man, Nowhere Man, Paperback Writer and I'm Down. During the tour they occasionally substituted the final song with Long Tall Sally.

Published on Aug 16, 201320:04 seconds from the Beatles concert I attended on August 16, 1966 . About 10 seconds of "I Feel Fine" . To the best of my knowledge , it is the only film in existence of this particular show. George & his White socks was the topic of the week following the show. No One wore white socks in the summer of 66....but George did & he flaunted them , making a firm statement about the perception of what cool is & being a nonconformist.
Also on this day...Want more? Visit the Beatles history section.

August 16, 2015 Sunny Song of the Day Bagpipes of Rufus Harley

Sun, 08/16/2015 - 04:33
Rufus Harley

A superb rendition ...jazz for sure, bagpipes and rhythmic flavorings...just tremendous...JV

__________________________________________________


A pop standard, as performed by the world's greatest jazz bagpiper.
https://youtu.be/4HYMwRtJHV8



Just when you thought you'd heard it all, along comes a jazz bagpipe player. Make no mistake folks, this is more than a joke -- whatever you might think, the cat can play. At first it sounds like some sort of weird organ, but a couple of minutes later you can't mistake it for anything but what it is. Like an organ, though, the bagpipe turns out to be remarkably suited for jazz. With little effort, one man can make an absolute ocean of sound. The groove here is nothing special, a solid soul-jazz feeling. Side one is all bagpipe. Side two is the leader on a number of different instruments. A talented fellow. - by Rob Ferrier, AMG

Brilliant work by one of the most unusual jazz talents of the 60s! Rufus Harley's best known for his use of bagpipes in jazz music – a re-cooption of the instrument from Scottish styles, taking it back to its roots in northern Africa. A number of Harley's other albums from the time are a bit gimmicky – but this later set is a soul jazz masterpiece, infused with rich Coltrane-like modes of expression, as Harley plays both soprano sax and bagpipes over some long modal original compositions! The group is a great one – with Oliver Collins playing some fantastic spiraling lines on piano, and great bass and drum work by James Glenn & Billy Abner. Titles include "Ali", "X", "About Trane", "Tribute To Courage", and a great version of "Sunny"! (White label promo. Cover has some edge wear, a promo sticker, anda name in marker on back.) - Dusty Groove, Inc.
