Si Zentner, Raymond Scott & Ray Bloch (Toppyjazz 353)

This week we have the music of Si Zentner (1917-2000) and his big band. Si Zentner and his band was voted Best Big Band for 13 years by Downbeat! In 1962 he got a Grammy Award for Up A Lazy River. Strange we couldn't find an audio version! Here's the video:

Raymond Scott (1908-1994) is next in line with his sometimes weird music. But he was a pionier in electronic music. And mr. Scott had a sense of humor. Listen to his Dinner Music For A Pack of Hungry Cannibals! At last a great surprise with Stars On Defense no. 319 and 320 with Buddy Greco and Ray Bloch. We air the whole no. 319.
