He was on the bar many times however. Great sounds and always entertaining! In the audience too! He did walk outside playing too.
He got arrested in San Diego for doing it. The Harlem Nocturne - Bo Thorpe - Swinging & Sentimental (Cassette goes, that a band member went and got him out, he came back and went on playing. Gotta Album) it!!
Jay is amazing! He would sit and talk to the people in the bar during the breaks. He had as much fun as we did! I talked to him about 4 years ago. He would do lessons, but me being in Arizona and he in Cal, no skype then.
So, we never got together. Real nice guy. He told me he had given his M-6 to a friend and was playing a Super 80 at the time. Still playing! Oh yes………. How great is this guy? Big Jay had some nice things going on in his version. But for pure nostalgia, I gotta go with the Viscounts. Used to play this version on a jukebox in little dive bar. Sounds like a soundtrack for some film noir. And probably the semi Harlem Nocturne - Bo Thorpe - Swinging & Sentimental (Cassette Lounge lizards 4th.
Hey Johnny, Thanks again for this. Great tune and discussion. I had to pick a favorite tenor my horn choice and a favorite alto. For tenor, I like the Viscounts and Big Jay. For alto, hands down Earl Bostic. Second choice for alto was harder. Was waiting for him to something silly with the une, but that never happened. His version kind of reminds one of a Night Club act or Harlem Nocturne - Bo Thorpe - Swinging & Sentimental (Cassette Cabarett, strip joint like.
Gotta decide on a version for a backing track too. I think we can all agree that Harlem Nocturne is really a smokey-melancholy tune. Looking forward to playing around with it soon.
Johnny Otis! I listened to him on the radio when I was in grade school through high school. I love his band sound! The Altos do not do it for me. This is a Tenor tune for sure! All great musicians! Viscounts is the one for me. Johnny Otis passed 2 years ago at He got into California politics for much of his life.
Great work here Johnny! I have one more copy of music if you want it.? Johnny Otis — slow, sleepy jazz Lounge Lizards — cool The Viscounts — too hank martin for me Willis — too supermarket Boots Randolf — too difficult to follow. Something i would want to grooove to. I am trying to play this song for a while and a agree with sxpoet that i need a slower beat driven backing. The tune is not very complicated except for the two chromatic hopping runs. I always get out of beat there because i need to much time reading the notes and hitting the keys.
I need a lot more work on this! I appreciate any help from you on this. Warm Regards, Mark. I liked the King Curts tenor version the best all the others are great!
Thanks for all your hard work with this site. King Curtis on Tenor is my favourite followed by his alto version. The Spike Jones version is interesting too with the clarinet, I do like a bit of clarinet, Harlem Nocturne - Bo Thorpe - Swinging & Sentimental (Cassette.
Oh ya, I had checked that out earlier too. My list is basically from a CD another sax player gave me years ago and so I decided to share it. You can keep going and find many more as someone has done in the forum….
All we need now is a version set in the future, like the music played in star wars! Hi Johnny! Bounced around with a few instruments but enjoyed the sax and stayed with it all through grammar school and high school marching band and stage band. I still play but not like before and your site is a fantastic place to come back home to, thanks man! Hi: Been awhile since a post to this subject but anyway here is a link to 42 versions of Harlem Nocturne….
Love Illinois Jaquet version, the one I use mostly but with more rhythm for dancing. You must be logged in to post a comment. All Rights Reserved. Remember Me. Create a new account.
