TheLarchWood’s Song of the Day: Bill Evans & Jim Hall – Skating In Central Park

This entry was originally posted on TheLarchWood “Skating In Central Park” was originally written by John Lewis for “Odds Against Tomorrow”, a 1959’s film produced and directed by Robert Wise. The Modern Jazz Quartet recorded the tune for the film and for their album Music from Odds Against Tomorrow and released it in 1959 on United Artists Record. Bill Evans and Jim Hall re-record the waltz and released it on their 1962 album Undercurrent on United Artists, which Jazz critic Pete Welding stated: “This collaboration between Evans and Hall has resulted in some of the most beautiful, thoroughly ingratiating music it has been my pleasure to hear—now or any other time. Each of the selections is suffused with a lyric charm, a tenderness, an elegance, an unabashed romanticism that take one’s breath away.

TheLarchWood’s Song of the Day: Eric Church – Springsteen

I remember listening to Springsteen for the first time on some online radio back in 2012. It was sublime. Reminded me of my high school romance that I had thought I would not be able to live without. But there I was….taking a long walk off a short pier. Springsteen was released as a single off Eric Church’s third studio album Chief on February 21, 2012. The song was written by Church, Jeff Hyde and Ryan Tyndell and was inspired by a memory of a girl and tells the story of a teenage romance. Even though the song carries enough glimmer to feel like Spring, the title is originally centered around Church’s idol: Bruce Springsteen.

TheLarchWood’s Song of the Day: Poemme – Tadpoles

One distinctive feature of Poemme’s 2017’s album BLOOMING SPRING has to be its arbitrary emancipation. The album isn’t restricted to any emotional boundaries. It doesn’t deliver a sense of deep melancholy or morbidness, neither does it express an utmost bliss that goes beyond our cognition. Rather it gives out a feeling of a conventional and convivial life that we are fastened with. The 3rd track off Blooming Spring is TheLarchWood’s Song of the Day getting 5 conifer cones out of 5 for the day. Listen Below.

TheLarchWood’s Song of the Day: La Javanaise

La Javanaise was written and composed by Serge Gainsbourg originally for Juliette Gréco, and interpreted by both her and Serge Gainsbourg in 1963. The story behind the song goes: One summer evening in 1962, Gréco and Gainsbourg spent the evening listening to records and drinking champagne in the huge lounge at 33, rue de Verneuil.
