The jazzy trumpet part in the middle is great especially when you start doing the vocal accents and phrasing. You are a pure entertainer Michael!

Hello
Listening On the train this time... Less dangerous. I can enjoy this without fear of having food thrown at me (true story, happened last week). Very cool tune to listen to as the world whooshed past the window. Very enjoyable Michael, very enjoyable indeedy!
michaeljayklein said 2910 days ago (October 2nd, 2010)
Glad you are safe Ted!
Yeah, the tubes (as you call them there) are just as bad as the buses probably but with the advantage of getting you to your destination in half the time, so less risky--I very much agree with you! We just had trains put in here in Minneapolis about 6 years ago and I love riding them--quite a difference from those Suicide on Wheels buses, let me tell you! You had food thrown at you? Now I really envy you! I've not experienced that yet, but looking forward to the day every morning when I climb aboard! Thanks again--and take good care now! Michael

You WON'T believe this, but some years ago, I worked for a company that was housed in the original Otis Elevator Company's headquarters building here in Minneapolis (what I thought was curious was the building was a sprawling, one floor deal--NO elevators--maybe the employees knew something we don't??)

I remember swinging to this back in the speakeasy days, when fats graduated from roller-rink organ gigs to workin' for the mob. You give this a mob-worthy tribute, as do the gin-soaked junkies backing you up. Press your face in dough... wow, your little incidentals are what make these gems so very MJK-ee. Keep on swingin, daddiom, you da best.

Yanno, I think the reason the ugly people follow my act is because they are given a discount to get in by the management and it's for this very reason that I play with my back to the audience while wearing a life-like Michael Jay Klein rubber mask on the back of my head (at the very worst, I sometimes catch whispering from the crowd about "What's wrong with his arms and legs?"). And nah, Impsie, YOU are the bestess--we are the restess! Thanks again and hope you are enjoying your much needed vacation! xoxoxo

Fats was the man!
I loved his style, his wit, his genius and I think I've heard almost every thing he ever recorded Mark! I just wish he had made more film appearances! My first piano teacher told me of her seeing him in Atlantic City in the early 40s and he had a drummer who had a Kewpie doll suspended on a string hanging down the bass part of his kit--it would dance around when he played--she never forgot that! See, those are the little things I wish I'd been around to have caught--when music was still fun and entertaining as well as displaying fine musicianship. As always, it's wonderful to hear a positive word from a musician I greatly admire--thanks so very much Mark (and have a great week!) Michael

just after the north american depression era ?
love the skatting - where are these other musicians from ? - where did you do this ?
great vocals and piano solo - slow - fast - slow sections make it so expansive in its feel ! such a great collaboration ! no lie says

867-5309--that's very close to the phone number I had back when I lived in Richfield! The musicians on here are featured with Alan McPike (at the piano and alas, I know not their real identities, but they are darned good!). I record my part down here in the basement! Eventually I will have an electronic keyboard and do these things myself, but with such great backing available, it's easy to hold off on that! Take care now, Michael

Not convinced
Last time i commented favourably about the suitability of your voice on 'Just a Gigolo', you denied that you had a good jazz voice. Totally unconvinced now! You do it very well to my ear.

Really pleasant listen.

Fats seemed to embody a whole way of life, as well as being a brilliant musician; an impossible way of life, i suppose, for most of us, propped up by that irrepressible piano, whisky, and the tilt of a hat worn indoors!

I think Waller pretty much epitomized what was going on in that era (along with The Duke and Benny Goodman) and I may sound maudlin here, but I'm ever so grateful that they had invented a way to record greats like him so that we could still enjoy them like they were done yesterday--to me that is a wonderful musical gift. You are too kind--but I truly appreciate it! Michael

Actually that is not my band, but it is Alan McPike on the keys and some studio musicians (alas, I do not know their names!) Appreciated hearing from you--take good care now! Michael

Masterful
You've got the period sound down pat. The Waller piano sound is just terrific. How do you know if a song is PD or not? Seems like old songs just get their copyrights renewed, and then you still can't use them. Who are these wind players? Are those real names? They are both fabulous.

Awesome
The trumpet & sax jamming is fantastic. Like the pace (tempo) changes back & forth too. Great vocals, needless to say. Cheers / Mike
