JazzFest at Highfield Hall: Louis Armstrong: A Robert Wyatt Lecture

September 26, 2015 by Beth Colt

One of the earliest trumpet sensations, Louis Armstrong pioneered the groundwork which shifted the newly founded jazz from collective improvisation to solo performance. His distinctive singing voice was also used as an improvisatory tool, and we owe scat singing to his list of inventions. The pairing of his unique instrumental gift and a charismatic personality won him universal and eternal appeal as the “Satchmo,” king of all jazz aficionados. More at highfieldhall.org

We’ve Grown Accustomed to Lerner and Loewe: A Robert Wyatt Lecture

September 10, 2015 by Beth Colt

Lerner and Loewe’s My Fair Lady experienced a six year run which smashed all previous records, cemented stardom for Julie Andrews and Rex Harrison, and immortalized the names of its creators. In temperament, personality and background, Lerner and Loewe were perhaps the most dissimilar of all songwriting teams, two men who somehow accommodated their often tempestuous relationship to generate brilliantly crafted musical productions—Brigadoon, Paint Your Wagon, My Fair Lady, the filmGigi, and finally Camelot. What a pair of songwriters!
