BLUES BEFORE SUNRISE FOR 1/8/2017

LEW LESLIE’S BLACKBIRDS OF 1928

This week on Blues Before Sunrise we’ll put the spotlight on Lew Leslie’s Blackbirds of 1928. This Broadway production ran for 518 performances – making it one of the most successful all black cast productions ever. The music was written by Jimmy McHugh and Dorothy Fields and was performed by Adelaide Hall, Bill Bojangles Robinson, Aida Ward, Tim Moore with Elisabeth Welch,  Mantan Moreland, Cecil Mack and Nina Mae McKinney. Brunswick Record executive Jack Kapp loved the show so much that in 1933 he recorded a dozen songs from the production using a variety of artists he had on his label including Duke Ellington, Adelaide Hall, Ethel Waters, Bill Robinson, Cab Calloway, The Mills Bros, Don Redman Orchestra, and the Cecil Mack Choir. We’ll spend Hour #2 listening to the recordings which were reissued on an LP in 1968, the fortieth anniversary of the original Broadway production. Where else are you going to hear this kind of stuff?  Blackbirds of 1928 – only on BBS!
