Episode 8: Laughing at Life, track by track! "Stars Fell on Alabama"
IN THIS EPISODE:
We continue our song-by-song exploration of our newly released album, Laughing at Life, as we discuss the beloved jazz standard "Stars Fell on Alabama." Hilary and Melissa debate the pronunciation of "drah-ma" vs. "dramma" and Oded lets us in on his onomotopoeic arranging secrets (hint: kissing is involved).
SPECIAL GUEST WYCLIFFE GORDON!
Duchess met Wycliffe a few years ago when we all happened to be hanging out and sitting in at Vince Giordano & the Nighthawks' gig. A mutual lovefest ensued and we've worked together several times since then. Wycliffe's muted trombone lent a touch of Pops (and a lot of magic) to our version of "Stars Fell on Alabama." Learn more about Wycliffe Gordon on his website.
