Fables of Faubus - Charles Mingus from Mingus Ah Um (1959).

Mingus Ah Um

I want this song to be my Pink Panther-like theme song.

Yes, this song is a protest of Orval Faubus, the Governor of Arkansas best known for sending out the National Guard in 1957 to prevent nine black students from attending Little Rock Central High School.

Flim - The Bad Plus

What a wonderful Aphex Twin cover.  Someone on another messageboard described this song as “imagining what might happen late at night in the studio after everyone’s gone home and the instruments are left to themselves…”

Creole Love Call - Duke Ellington (1927)

Duke Ellington

Jazz Sunday presents one of the most beautiful songs ever recorded.

If you like this, also try the Comedian Harmonists’ version here.

Comedian Harmonists

Before World War II, they were a popular group of German harmonists with a sense of humor.

Then it’s not just a clever name.
