Listen to RSA Staff Favorites by Louis Armstrong

Thu, 08/04/2022 - 15:09

Happy Birthday, Louis Armstrong! Today would have been Louis Armstrong’s 121st birthday. Did you know that a Jewish immigrant family helped Armstrong buy his first horn?

In a memoir from 1970 titled Louis Armstrong and the Jewish Family in New Orleans, LA the year of 1907 Armstrong described his time working for the Karnofsky family, a local Lithuanian-Jewish family who hired him to do odd jobs for their peddling business.

The jazzman would later write that the Karnofskys treated him as though he were their own child, often giving him food and even loaning him money to buy his first instrument, a $5 cornet which he paid back. (he wouldn’t begin playing the trumpet until 1926). As a sign of his gratitude to his Jewish benefactors, Armstrong later took to wearing a Star of David pendant around his neck until the end of his life in memory of the family who had helped him.

Here are a few RSA staff favorites of Louis Armstrong to get you started:

RSA Staff Favorites by Louis Armstrong
  1. You’re Next
  2. Melancholy
  3. Frankie And Johnny
  4. When the Saints Go Marching In
  5. Satchel Mouth Swing

Listen to the Donut Song by Burl Ives

Fri, 06/03/2022 - 12:09

It’s National Donut Day and on this day one song comes to mind, The Donut Song by Burl Ives. Despite it’s age, this song has a wonderful message about life:

When you walk the streets you’ll have no cares

If you walk the lines and not the squares

As you go through life make this your goal

Watch the donut, not the hole.

Meaning appreciate what you have (the donut), shed your desires, worries and wants (the hole).

You can listen to this song on the Recorded Sound Archives website: https://rsa.fau.edu/track/113310

& let us know in the comments what your favorite type of donut? We’re pretty partial to Boston Cream donuts here in the sound archive.

Yankee Doodle – A Bit of Music History

Tue, 04/19/2022 - 11:20

Yankee Doodle” was a well-known song in the New England colonies before the battles of Lexington and Concord, but only after the skirmishes there was it appropriated by the American militia.

Tradition holds that the colonials began to sing the tune as they forced the British back to Boston on April 19, 1775.

By 1777, “Yankee Doodle” had become an unofficial American anthem. After the Revolutionary War, “Yankee Doodle” surfaced in stage plays, classical music, and opera.

You can listen to a few versions of this song here at the Recorded Sound Archives website:

Discover the Voice of Cantor Moshe Schwimmer this High Holy Days

Fri, 09/03/2021 - 10:31

This High Holy days we wanted to highlight the voice of Cantor Moshe Schwimmer.

Moshe Schwimmer was born with the gift of a beautiful singing voice. As a child his singing delighted all who heard him. But, being a serious and studious young man, he desired to develop his talents through study and hard work. And so, at the age of 18, he set out to study music and liturgy at the Brunn Music Conservatory in Czechoslovakia (now Austria).

Inside the conservatory he was welcomed into the cantor’s choir. His knowledge of liturgical music grew and his rich baritone voice became polished and more defined. Outside the conservatory Hitler was on a rampage. Sadly, the synagogue in Brunn was torched and burned by the Nazis. Moshe was determined to increase his skills. He fled to Budapest where he continued to study, created the OMIKE performance group, and gave concerts, until the Hungarians sent him to a forced labor camp and then to a concentration camp.

After his liberation in 1944, he appeared throughout Eastern Europe, but it was not until his travels took him to Germany that his talents were truly recognized.  He was invited to sing for the state-run radio station in Munich.  Soon he had his own hour-long weekly radio program which was broadcast all over Europe.

This wonderful recording was created by the JSA from the private recordings of Cantor Moshe Schwimmer and can only be heard on this website. Moshe Schwimmer was a cantor whose beautiful voice and soulful singing touched audiences for decades. Yet, his voice might have been lost forever were it not for one man’s strong desire to cherish his brother’s memory and protect his legacy.

Zalman Schwimmer (a.k.a. Sydney), personally hand-carried his brother’s private tape recordings (along with some memorabilia and biographical information) to the Wimberly Library on Florida Atlantic University’s Boca Raton campus. He told us about his brother, “He never made any commercial recordings.  That wasn’t for him. He didn’t want to be famous. He didn’t try to please others.  He was just always striving for perfection.”

 

Listen to the voice of Cantor Moshe Schwimmer

Discover the voice of Cantor Moshe Schwimmer this High Holy Days by visiting the Recorded Sound Archives website and listening to his album High Holy Days in a Conservative Synagogue (https://rsa.fau.edu/album/36556).

Looking for more music to celebrate the High Holy Days this year? Look no further, the Recorded Sound Archives has a collection of over 40 recordings for you to choose from and share and enjoy with your family.

Fri, 07/30/2021 - 05:48
Martin Bookspan had life-long friendships with two great classical music geniuses, Leonard Bernstein and Aaron Copland. As the voice of the PBS television series Live from Lincoln Center from 1976 to 2006, Martin Bookspan riveted audiences with his eloquently distinctive voice and extensive knowledge of classical music. The N.Y. Times (May 24, 2006) described Bookspan as  “One half erudite informer, the other half grandfatherly guide, [who kept audiences] tuned in during intermissions with easy-to-digest program notes and anecdotes.” A generous supporter of the Judaica Sound Archives now the Recorded Sound Archives at Florida Atlantic University Libraries, Bookspan spoke before a sold-out audience at FAU Libraries’ 2013 Kultur Festival in March. Today Martin Bookspan would have been turning 95, he passed away earlier this year in April at his home in Aventura, FL. In celebration of his life, we wanted to share these video clips taken during a lecture he gave in 2013 at FAU Libraries.  My Friends: Leonard Bernstein & Aaron Copland Lecture Presented by Martin Bookspan at FAU’s Wimberly Library on March 5, 2013   (1) Bookspan talks about the young Leonard Bernstein (2) Bookspan interviews Leonard Bernstein (3) Bookspan remembers Aaron Copland (4) Copland’s Lincoln Portrait (5) Concluding remarks You can also listen to Martin Bookspan narrating Copland: A Lincoln Portrait on the Recorded Sound Archives website by clicking here.
