More SUNNY gems Morgana King

 


PAT MARTINO

SUNNY





LISTEN TO MORGANA KING SING 'SUNNY"
FROM 4 song EP as well as this lp

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CgSPV0hthhw

Bossa, samba, and the related world of Burt Bacharach come off best here, although once again the clever touches of Zito are sorely missed. "The Look of Love" pays the cost of Costa's hammy conducting, but "Walk on By" is just right. "Sunny" is an unexpected delight, maybe because Costa must have realized he couldn't out-schlock the hit single by Bobby Hebb. Instead, King is given a chance to use her ultra-relaxed and in-control phrasing to give the song a whole new feel. Some listeners may not even get past the first song, however, a monstrosity entitled "I Have Loved Me a Man." This is a good example of a song that gives off the scent of the wretched from its title alone. After ignoring the singer's cozy feel for swing for the entire album, "On the South Side of Chicago" comes off as a strained finale; Costa should have thought of this sooner, although it would have been a lot better if he hadn't shown up at all.

    Patriots' Quarterback Tom Brady says Goodbye to Candlestick Park, where the Beatles and Bobby Hebb performed in 1966

    Patriots' Brady: 'Sad to see Candlestick go'

    LOOK: 4-year-old Tom Brady was at Candlestick Park for 'The Catch'

    By Ryan Wilson | CBSSports.com


    Before Tom Brady became the face of the Patriots, a Super Bowl MVP, and one of the best quarterbacks to ever play in the NFL, he was just a kid growing up in Northern California who happened to be a huge Joe Montana fan.

    On Thursday, the folks running Brady's Facebook page, posted a picture of the future Hall of Famer taking in a game at Candlestick Park. But it wasn't just any game. It was the NFC Championship matchup against the Cowboys that was decided by The Catch.

    Candlestick Park will go out with a wrecking ball, not a bang

    Updated 7:30 am, Friday, January 16, 2015
    Plans for a pyrotechnic implosion of Candlestick Park have fizzled in favor of the wrecking ball with health fears and political pressure playing a big part in the decision.

    The 54-year-old stadium is being demolished to make way for a shopping center, hotel and housing complex. But an attention-grabbing plan to implode the Stick next month ran into stiff opposition from Golden Gate University’s Environmental Law and Justice Clinic and the Bayview Hill Neighborhood Association over fears about noise and the spread of toxic dust.

    Album Notes
    This generous five-disc set collects 100 mostly original recordings of '60 hits, including songs by Elvis Presley, Sly & the Family Stone, the Righteous Brothers, and Tom Jones. Given that it spans so many different kinds of '60s sounds, including girl group pop, folk-rock, British Invasion hits, and psychedelic pop, the collection doesn't always offer the smoothest listening experience. Still, the sheer amount of hits here means that most '60s music fans will find more than a few things they'll enjoy. Highlights include the Troggs' "Wild Thing," Georgie Fame & the Blue Flames' "Yeh, Yeh," Thunderclap Newman's "Something in the Air," and the Spencer Davis Group's "Gimme Some Lovin'." ~ Heather Phares

    /Georges Arvanitas Trio.Personnel: Sonny Criss (alto saxophone); George Arvanitas (piano); Jacky Samson (bass); Charles Saudrais (drums).Recorded in Bologna, Italy on January 28, 1974.Personnel: Sonny Criss (alto saxophone); George Avanitas (piano); Charles Saudrais (drums).Liner Note Author: George Avanitas.Recording information: Bologna, Italy (01/28/1974).This live set by the unjustly underappreciated alto saxophonist Sonny Criss from Italy in 1974 is a case in point for his tremendous lyricism, original tone, and hard-swinging soulfulness. Fronting the Georges Arvanitas Trio, Criss ushers the company through a series of fine pop and jazz standards, including Bobby Hebb's "Sunny"  Thom Jurek, ALLMUSIC.com

    Sunny by Billy Preston  - instrumental with vocal intro - The Beatles had asked Bobby Hebb to play keyboards with them after the 1966 tour, but Bobby was more into the guitar at the time and suggested Billy Preston ...the rest is history... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ee0LtINHtfc

     http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billy_Preston

    Relationship with the Beatles

    Preston first met the Beatles as a 16-year-old in 1962, while part of Little Richard's touring band, when their manager Brian Epstein organized a Liverpool show, at which the Beatles opened. The Washington Post explained their subsequent meeting:
    Preston is one of several people referred to by commentators as the "Fifth Beatle". At one point during the "Get Back" sessions, John Lennon proposed the idea of having him join the band (to which Paul McCartney countered that it was difficult enough reaching agreements with four).[5] Preston played with the Beatles for several of the Get Back sessions, some of the material from which would later be culled to make the film Let it Be and its companion album. Preston also accompanied the band for its rooftop concert; the group's final public appearance.[4]
