You can play a shoestring if you're sincere - John Coltrane
Ladies and Gentlemen, I just play the piano...
Can you craft an atmosphere?
An absurdist juxtaposition; excuse the imposition.
- Harold Pinter reading Beckett's "The Unnamable"
- John Coltrane's "My Favorite Things"
- Billie Whitelaw performing Beckett's "Not I"
A juxtaposition of poetry written around WWI with some jazz played in the early 1970s. Just dug the mashup. Hope you do too.
EDIT: The music bed is Root Down (And Get It) by Jimmy Smith from his 1972 Root Down LP.
Some groovin' 1949 bebop to hand-painted film animation - must be Norman McLaren. This vid just felt right for a Sunday afternoon that seemed a bit lazy. Also, the music is played by Oscar Peterson. What more could you ask for? Make sure you snap your fingers at the end of this one.
