Past Present: Pralines

Friday, June 22, 2007

Every so often we like to dig into WNYC's vast archives and find some gems that have gone out over our airwaves in years past. Today we're going to play some music that originally aired exactly 60 years and 4 months ago, on February 22, 1947 as part of WNYC's American Music Festival. It's a tune called "Pralines," with an introduction by Tony Parenti, who played the clarinet, along with Clarence Williams on piano, Pops Foster on bass, and Baby Dodds on drums. Thanks to WNYC archivist Andy Lanset for finding it for us.
