World Service 365 music follows a simple appraisal. Tried and true: is it a durable pop song….regardless of whether it was a chart topper…..does it have that “it” factor…that only a select few seem to be able to determine….that certain “hit” quality.
The genre doesn’t really matter…but jazz lends itself to those “undiscovered” hits that sound great and many of them that we know so well……..live365.com/stations/worldservice365
on our August ’14 Playlist includes:
Ray Baretto-La Cuna
….NY in the late 70s….early 80s…no explanantion needed really..Latin Jazz at its’ best..oh…Tropea, Joe Farrell (flute) and Gadd are on it..hahah
….with his mind blown from having a very unexpected#1 hit…Deodato responded with this jazz-rock anthem…no apologies…needed….or expected….yes that’s Tropea again, and Cobham!
Manfred Mann-Mighty Quinn
…an eskimo on a “dose”…..yes..the 60’s were real
McCartney as his rocking best…cool song…with typical McCartney stoner lyrics..
..am playing the rare mono 45 edit..that was used by AM stations
An upbeat late ’50’s almost Brubeck-esque track from the Milestones LP….snappy
Blood Sweat & Tears-You’ve Made Me So Very Happy
1969 never sounded so romantic…David Clayton-Thomas…underated…now almost seemingly forgotten
Herb’s comeback smash….holds up well 35 years on!!
