Videos from the Concordia RS gala
Here's a slew of video clips from Adam O'Callaghan's March 2008 Raymond Scott centenary concert in Montreal. Titles performed include "Dinner Music for a Pack of Hungry Cannibals," the rare "Tenor Man's Headache," "Square Dance for Eight Egyptian Mummies," the electronic "Lullabye" from Soothing Sounds for Baby, "Twilight in Turkey," "War Dance for Wooden Indians" (which includes a fabulous tap dance sequence), and a few Secret Seven numbers. A spinoff of the concert, the Concordia Raymond Scott Quintette, performs at the Montreal Jazz Festival on Saturday, July 5. Update (21 JULY): Here's a gazillion photos from the CRSQ @ Jazzfest.
