squirrel nut zippers

we want squirrel nut zippers

This song can't live on this playlist if "La Candela Viva" from Totó La Momposina isn't in it as well! I'm not leaving this chair until I hear it. 
Well that was fun

Driinkin' a pitcher o' Dark n Stormy, baby, feeling way higher than Standard Orbit, and enjoying full-on the effects of Being in Boulder....

What a nice surprise ! Luco Bermudez here on radio Paradise.
Please bring more of Lucho (e.g. "Colombia Tierra Querida")

For some reason, tonight the clarinet was reminding me of Augustus Pablo on the Melodica....{#Stupid}

If you're in the mood for "something completely different".....

Sounds pretty horny, Bill!

If an artist or composer were to receive royalties from later artists who compose and perform music in a similar style or genre to theirs, Chuck Berry would be a trillionaire.  Latin swing music has been around for at least 80 years, this guy was one of its best artists.  Good tune.
I hope this guy is getting royalties from Squirrel Nut Zippers!
That was a fun tune,,,,
Amazing horn!!

Colombian's don't really eat tacos. More like: Arroz con Coco, Cuchuco de Trigo or Lechona.  Funny how most Americans lump all the peoples south of the border into "taco eaters."

 
'Most Americans?' Is that not a bit offensive in itself?

You're taking offense when none appears to be offered.
música de mi pueblo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! {#Sunny}  VIVA COLOMBIA 
Heard this played in Trinidad, Cuba last year; wasn't as good as this rendition.
Colombia has better stuff for sale!

I'm thinking if I were a jazz band director in High School, I'd use this song to teach how your solo  can  should fit in with the rest of the tune.

Cool stuff!

Perfectly meets my idea of summer.

I could add Balkan Beats, Dixieland, etc. to that list

I would guess that the common root to East-European Klezmer & Balkan-beats and Spanish/Hispanic music may be related to gypsies.
Not sure if/where Dixieland fits in.
  My first thought was klezmer, too! It was the woodwinds...

(Not saying that this colombian treasure is in any way related to klezmer, just that my European ears have heard similar woodwind cadences from a closer region and thus wanted to point out the similarity.)

I'm loving the clarinet theme you've got going on over the last 45 minutes or so! {#Music}

Reminds me of the poster who said a Klezmer tune reminded them of a day in the French Quarter! It's the aural equivalent of "they all look alike to me". Doesn't help that the Sushi bars around here are run by Koreans who also serve Chinese food (although the implications for repairing historical wounds are encouraging).

Dangit! Now I want to hear the Klezmatics. Nope, make that the New Orleans Klezmer All Stars. Those guys rock!


I really like this.

That's 'Cumbia Colombiana' for you! (the dancing banana would not do {#Wink})

   I had no idea Roy Orbison was so popular in S. America. 

Now it's obvious where the influance for Blue Bayou and Leah came from.. {#Wink}

My only complaint is that the song's too short! {#Jump}
Is it klezmer or Caribbean?  Yes.

Is it fun?  Oh, hell yeah!  {#Jump}
I hear the klezmer slant as well (and as I type this it sounds like Bill chose to follow with another klezmer-sounding track). No need here for such caustic remarks, martindi...

Lol... I think you are rather confused, I'm afraid .I'd say this sounds more from the caribbean region than klezmer (I've just had a look it's exactly from the colombian caribbean). Ppl should be better informed before writting a superficial and embarrassing comment on RP

 

Goodness, martindi. First of all, to tell you the truth, the most embarassing thing to me is that I cannot, for the life of me, remember writing the comment to which you refer. However, since it is highly unlikely that someone broke into my account and wrote something in my diction, maybe I did write it. Secondly, I can't see why asking a simple question should be superficial and embarassing, unless the topic of cross-fertilization of musical styles is offensive.

Oh yes, I like it, it sounds quite good. Sth. different on RP  {#Sunny}
That's music from the colombian caribbean. Lucho Bermudez, one of our most talented musicians, transformed a traditional caribic rhytmus (the so called "porro") with a big band performance. People who call this music klezmer are simply ignorant and provincial.

My thoughts exactly - the opening bars made me think it was a little bit of kletzmer for Yom Kippur.

OK, I'll bite. I looked it up and the wiki said "Klezmer ... is a musical tradition which parallels Hasidic and Ashkenazic Judaism." I don't know what it sounds like, but I am thinking the columbian music wouldn't be a likely candidate. No?

Hey, what's that song from the old Guinness commercial? Sounds like this without the clarinet. Now it is eating my brain...

What a sweet transition from Koop Island Blues. The transitions are definitely one of RP's specialties!
keep hearing Squirrel Nut Zipper's "Afterlife" in this.
SO sensuous and sultry...

Huh. 20 songs? The rotation is more like once every couple of weeks at the most frequent. You just remember the ones you don't like. I remember the ones I do. Then again, I like how I come over here to rate some song and I've already rated it.

You must be kidding. where I'm from, the local radio plays the same crap every day, and even the big music channel uses a 4 hour rotation. 4 hours. The same songs, every 4 hours. Shuffle at noon, and the same songs, in a different order, on a new 4 hour rotation. 4 hours. I'll take two week rotations over 4 hour rotations any day.
I like so much the colombian music. and the putumayo records

nicenice.
What is truly great about this is the way the horns go off the beat just slightly -- that little hesitation just absolutely grabs you by the neck and won't let go! :music: :cowboy: :bounce:
Me gusta mucho!
For some reason I am reminded of a punchline from a gradeschool joke, "Hiccup, burp, cha cha cha" Just forgot the rest of the joke. Dang! It's hell getting old. I think it had to do with the three bears and who stole papa bear's beer and cha cha records...
MUCH better song than the 6.6 indicates. Love it. Infectious rhythm.
I love Cumbia. It is the Columbian equivalent of folk/big band which started in the 40's, I believe, so don't think the guy is ripping off the Squirrel Nut Zippers. Quite the opposite if anything. I have a lot of tunes from Lisandro Mesa, aslo from the same genre and era. Big band sound with accordian lead, great party music. There used to be a Comcast music chanell called "Folklorica" which played lots of this style.

Oh, bummer. I thought you'd be right on this one......Can't figure out the segue into Vivaldi.
