A Night on the Town in Manhattan: November 1963

Blowhard, Esq. writes:


Quite a list of choices. Although, as someone pointed out, this occurred the week after Kennedy’s assassination, so I’m sure some of these events were cancelled.

    Miles, Dave Brubeck, Rasaan Roland Kirk, Clark Terry, Basie and Stan Getz. Holy shit, what an embarrassment of riches for jazz. I hear that Dylan kid has a bright future, too. And hell, Bill Monroe in his peak. Damn.

    Interesting that almost the only things on that page haven’t aged with much prestige are the movies: “Cleopatra”, “It’s a Mad (6X) World” and “How the West was Won” are not highly regarded by cinephiles — is that not so? But nearly all of those musical offerings (Bill Monroe and Doc Watson! Dave Brubeck, Miles, Sam Cooke!) are as hip now as they ever were. Same with the stand up, Flip Wilson. Bob Dylan had probably just written “Blowin’ in the Wind” around that time, and for the first time, was probably actually worth hearing. I think I actually saw Brother Theodore’s show about a year or two after this clipping — but I don’t remember much of it. I know that in his later years, he worked his schtick to death, in the grand New York manner.

    Wow, so many names easily recognizable for most, on the very same page! Will we ever have that kind of shared cultural experience again? The “collapse of the narrative” continues apace…
