Monday morning everything seems out of synch, but when it’s the likes of Jon Hendricks and Mel Torme, who cares?

David Amram’s impossibly beautiful waltz from “After The Fall,” with Paquito D’Rivera on saxophone.
The piece was composed for use in the original Elia Kazan stage production of Arthur Miller’s play After The Fall.

Monday morning, Mama nixes making music, but that doesn’t stop David Amram and company.
Has there ever been a musician more accomplished in so many fields of music than David Amram? Whether it be in folk music, classical, jazz, or even movie scores (Splendor in The Grass and The Manchurian Candidate were his compositions), he’s been an eclectic, generous presence.
Here he is playing a musical introduction at the Philadelphia Folk Festival with Larry Campbell on guitar, Erik Lawrence on sax, Somoko on violin, and Amram’s son, Adam, on drums. Be sure to catch Amram playing two pennywhistles at 4:25.
Amram is about eighty years old in this video and still making great music now at age 87.

Monday morning turn up your radio to hear Van Morrison backed by The Band.
Morrison was famously inconsistent and erratic in live performance, but Martin Scorsese caught one of Van’s greatest performances in this rendition of “Caravan” for Scorsese’s film The Last Waltz.
Attempt to decipher lyrics at your own peril.
