All Hopped Up Music and Maps: Chapter 1
I’m pleased to announce that I have the first MP3 playlists up online to accompany/augment All Hopped Up and Ready To Go: Music From The Streets Of New York 1927-77. In fact, for the first chapter, I’ve uploaded two playlists: the first, Harlem Strut, sets the scene with examples of the music that could be heard in Harlem in 1927, at the start of the book; the second, Mario Gets Dizzy, follows the progress of that first chapter, as Mario Bauza and Dizzy Gillespie find their feet in New York City through the 1930s and into the early 1940s.

The appendix also includes a Google map of Harlem to accompany that first chapter,and a YouTube video of “The Peanut Vendor.” I’ll put up more YouTube videos along the way, and hopefully upload a new Chapter Appendix every week. So look for Chapter 2 next week. In the meantime, Chapter 1 can be found here.
A reminder that I’ll be on WKZE around 9am Thursday October 22, 98.1 on the dial for those in the Hudson Valley and Berkshires, WKZE.com for those who want to listen online.
