greendougherty.Blog – Oldies (Doo Wop) Music – Jazz Music

7-23-2017 1-16-20 AM

I have a true love for Oldies (Doo Wop) Music and have been calling all the posts Oldies (Doo Wop) Groups because almost all the music is centered around groups from the 1950’s. The majority of the music comes from groups from the 1950’s and some are with the lead singer for that group as they do a single after the group has met success. So, forgive the title, Oldies (Doo Wop) Groups, as that will be the primary title for all these posts.

Also, part of the music collection will feature another type of music or video theme every so often, and the title will stay the same but be included in a sub title. Pretty much like the above selection of Jazz music that I was introduced while serving in the U.S. Marine Corps.

The Jazz music collection is centered around a Jazz period from the 1930’s that caught my attention and it was that of Benny Goodman with Sing Sing Sing at the Jazz Concert at Carnegie Hall in 1938. I still have the original LP album but was able to find the complete 12 minute recording on You Tube. Enjoy.

While in the U.S. Marines, I came across Timmy who introduced me to Ahmad Jamal and Nancy Wilson. Nancy Wilson, I’ll find out, but for now here is Ahmad Jamal with Poinciana. The other tunes is Moonlight in Vermont.

Just a quick intro to one of the Jazz great is that of Al Jarreau and with George Benson on one tune that caught my attention with “Breezin”. Once you listen to Al Jarrean you just have to hear more. Enjoy.

I just have to add Al Jarreau with Dave Brubeck with Take Five.

As to the rest of the tunes…enjoy. I’ll be adding more as memory comes back to me as to some Jazz greats.
