La Vie En Rose

Latin French, Italian Notes
La Vie En Rose

A really beautiful French love song is “La Vie En Rose”, which means something like “Life in Rosy Hues” (literally Life in pink). It was the signature song of French singer Édith Piaf.

Legend has it that Edith Piaf was born under a lamp-post in the rue de Belleville, a lively working-class district in Paris's 20th arrondissement. But Edith Gassion's birth on 19 December 1915 was decidedly less dramatic - it appears far more probable that Edith's mother gave birth to...

They had been working to register black voters in Mississippi during Freedom Summer and had gone to investigate the burning of a black church.

Jazz Notes
Petite Fleur (Little Flower)

Who was the New Orleans jazz pioneer who did most to make this music a unique art form? When this question is asked, the name of Louis Armstrong invariably comes to mind, and rightly so. But there is another jazz musician whose name deserves to be coupled with Armstrong as the greatest of the New Orleans Jazz players. His name is Sidney Bechet.

Blue Velvet

Pop and Misc. Notes
Blue Velvet

After the success of his song "Blue on Blue" (#3 in mid-1963), Vinton decided to record an album of "Blue" songs ("Blue Moon," "Blue Hawaii," "Am I Blue," etc). As he was picking up sheet music in Nashville, Vinton received a gift from publisher Al Gallico: a copy of "Blue Velvet," which in 1951 was the last major hit for Tony Bennett. The song fit very well with Vinton's project, as every song on the album had "Blue" in the title.
