Ray Troll’s Top CDs for 2010

Well the collapse and rebirth of the music industry continues unabated this year with yours truly contributing to the demise by buying far less actual shrink-wrapped CDs overall and buying singles here and there. That trend is helping to undermine the whole ‘concept album’ thing which is unfortunate. Then again how many of us bought CDs that contained only one or two good songs on it? Oh well. It is a double-edged sword. The reason I even raise this oft-debated issue is that my top picks all hold together as complete CDs, with the song cycle being integral to the whole.

1. Arcade Fire: “The Suburbs”

Arcade Fire’s third full length CD is a “sprawling” masterpiece of an album (pun intended), focused on the suburban landscape swallowing our planet . It’s packed with great songs. I found the best of them deeper into the CD. My faves are ‘Suburban War’ and ‘Sprawl II’. One of the most outstanding cuts is ‘We Used to Wait’. If you haven’t yet watched the interactive video of the song go to this web address and punch in the street address of the house you grew up in.

2. The National: “High Violet”

A moody, cinematic, deeply layered album with obtusely arty yet strangely appealing lyrics (“I was carried to Ohio in a swarm of bees” for instance). Not a bad song on it… and you’ll get hooked on the National’s sound and it’s slightly depressing groove (“Sorrow found me when I was young” is the opening line of song #2). Oh yeah! Bring it on. My favorite cut on the CD is the weirdly evocative “Lemonworld”.

Check out the video for Bloodbuzz Ohio here:

3. Black Dub: Black Dub

Daniel Lanois is back on the block in very fine form after drifting for the last few years. His last solo effort was off the mark but this one hits in all the right ways. He’s formed a super group of sorts with himself on guitar and vocals, Trixie Whitley on vocals ( and sometimes guitar and drums), Brian Blade on drums and Daryl Johnson on bass. Lanois is known by most folks for his trademarked multi-layered ethereal production skills, but on this CD it’s the live sound of a very tight, highly skilled band in absolute synch with each other. Most of the tunes are straight ahead blues rock numbers with Trixie belting out the lyrics and they’re all smoking hot and tight. One of my favorites though is a reggae inflected song called ‘Canaan’ with Lanois doing the lead vocals. It’s a gorgeous tune. Check out the videos on the bands website a band you’ll see what I mean about their groove:

4. Beach House: “Teen Dream”

A luxuriously sleepy little CD full of gorgeous tunes by a girl/boy duo from Baltimore ( Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally). Described as “dream-pop” you can easily hear the Beach Boys, Zombies and Neil Young in their sound. Check out the video of one of their best tunes ‘Walk in the Park’ here:

and the Fleetwood Mac sounding “Norway” here:

5. Vampire Weekend: “Contra”

No sophomore jinx here as the NYC preppy rockers bring back the poly beats and the Paul Simon-esque vocals and their South African inflected tunes. They jump all over the place with songs starting up and stopping, weaving off into lyrical sidelines and melodic hooks. A fun and lively, upbeat CD with a whole lot jammed into the all too brief 37 minutes of pop bliss.

Band videos are online at:

6. Deadman’s Bones: Deadman’s Bones

This is a 2009 release but I found out about it this year and man I love it. It’s definitely in the maybe-too-odd-for-most-folks category but what can you say about a band that features two horror-film obsessed guys enlisting a children’s conservatory choir to sing their creepy lyrics. Veteran indie actor Ryan Gosling is one of the two guys in the band ( you may have seen him in the movie ‘Half Nelson’ , ‘The Notebook’ or ‘Lars and the Real Girl’). Zach Shields is the other half. Both are Canadian born. My favorite tune by far is called “Pa Pa Power”.

Check out the video of “In the Room Where You Sleep” at

7. Yeasayer: “Odd Blood”

Yeasayer is a modern experimental psychedelic group hailing from Brooklyn. This is their second album and it’s juts as trippy and fun as the first one. Check out the twisted love story music video for the song “Madder Red’ at

and the surreal party scene in the video for ‘O.N.E.”. at

8. Phosphorescent: “Here’s to Taking It Easy”

Jake and Tom (a couple of online music review nerds not unlike me) call Phosphorescent “rainy day chill music, taking it easy, sort of alt country/folk”. Basically it’s the work of Alabama-born New York based musician Mathew Houck. These are wonderfully moody, deeply personal, lyrically rich songs. Great multi-layered production throughout. Here’s the myspace page:

That’s it for this year. As usual let me know what you think… and what you’ve been enjoying this year.

Happy New Year!

A Little Bit of Broadway

Groovelily's Striking 12

Take The Little Match Girl, update it to a seller of SAD Christmas Lights, and a grumpy guy on New Year’s Eve and you have Groovelily’s Striking 12. From the lovely beginning (Snow Song) to its reprise as part of The First Day of the Year, we follow the grumpy guy as he decides not to go out of New Year’s Eve (and possibly running into his ex-fiancee) to his nodding over The Little Match Girl. The music is sometimes mellow and sometimes not, but it always moves the story along. A nice way to send a chilly Sunday afternoon before New Year’s Eve.

A Little Bit of Broadway
December 12, 2010

Stephen Schwartz is the only songwriter with three Broadway shows running more than 1,900 performances (Pippin, The Magic Show and Wicked). In addition, Godspell had an initial off-Braodway/Broadway combined run of 2,600 performances. He is also the lyricist (and Oscar winner) for animated musicals Pocahontas, the Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Prince of Egpyt, and Enchanted.

Today we enjoy his young-man-on-a-quest musical, Pippin.
Pippin...John Rubenstein
Leading player...Ben Vereen
Charlamagne...Eric Berry
Fastrada...Leland Palmer
Catherine...Jill Clayburgh
Berthe...Irene Ryan

We also hear Stephanie Mills performing "Ain't It Good" from one of Schwartz's lesser-known musicals "Children of Eden.

Back in 1978, I, like many others of the time, had a crush on Robin Ellis as Poldark. So, when PBS ran a musical called She Loves Me starring Ellis in the male lead, I of course had to watch. And this was my introduction to what I have to admit is my #1 favorite musical.

It’s not your typical musical of the time (maybe that’s why Sheldon Harnick and Jerry Bock had to wait for a year until Fiddler on the Roof to win the Tony for best musical.) There aren’t any big show-stopping numbers, and only one real chorus number, although the chorus does appear throughout the show. This musical is just more intimate, smaller and more personal, just a perfect little jewel box of a show. The best word to describe it is charming. And no, that’s NOT a bad thing.

Georg and Amelia have been exchanging “dear friend” letters and are falling in love with other. They end up working with each other (without knowing it, of course) and they can’t stand each other. But, of course, they work thru all their problems, and the problems of everyone else in the shop by the end of the show. Plus, it all ends happily on Christmas Eve!

We are listening to the original cast today, but if you get the chance to see the 1978 BBC production, do so. I don’t think it is out on DVD, but there are some sections of it available (rather blurry) on Youtube. Robin Ellis makes a lovely somewhat awkward Georg. Hey, maybe it’s time to put Poldark on my Netflix list.

A Little Bit of Broadway

Think Pink! A Kay Thompson Party

Kay Thompson (1909 - 1998) was an author, composer, musician, actress and singer. She is best known as the creator of the
Eloise children's books. She had a profound influence on Hollywood musicals as singer, vocal coach, arranger, composer, etc, etc, etc. The recently released CD we are listening to today show not only her ability to sing, but compose and arrange. Want to see her? Her best known film is with Fred Astaire and Audrey Hepburn – she played the Diana Vreeland-like fashion magazine editor in Funny Face (which seems appropriate since she had her own line of designer women’s clothing.)

A Little Bit of Broadway

Million Dollar Quartet

On December 4, 1956, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins for the first and only time gathered at Sun Records in Memphis for what would be one of the greatest jam sessions ever.

Million Dollar Quartet gives us a chance to listen in to an infectious, thrilling recording session when four of early rock and roll’s incredible talents got together to make some incredible music.

Book: Floyd Mutrux and Colin Escott
Eddie Clendening (Elvis Presley), Lance Guest (Johnny Cash), Levi Kreis (Jerry Lee Lewis), Robert Britton Lyons (Carl Perkins), Elizabeth Stanley (Dyanne) and Hunter Foster (Sam Phillips).

Nominated for 3 Tony Awards, Levi Kreis won Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Musical.

Good Ol' Girls

Good Ol’ Girls has been described as "Virginia Woolf meets Dolly Parton!" Adapted by Paul Ferguson, Good Ol’ Girls is based on the stories of two acclaimed Southern authors: Lee Smith and Jill McCorkle, with songs by Nashville hit-makers Matraca Berg and Marshall Chapman.

Co-Author Lee Smith describes a Good Ol’ Girl as “She's got spunk, humor and independence; she's strong, smart, outspoken, and often, too trusting. She knows that big hair and a big heart do not mean a small mind... You don't want to cross a good ol' girl. She'll bring you a casserole, but she'll kill you, too.” Huffington Post February 15, 2010

Sally Mayes, Lauren Kennedy, Teri Ralston, Gina Stewart and Liza Vann portray those big haired, big hearted women.

A Little Bit of Broadway


Composer Jerry Bock died this week. He wrote some wonderful msuicals, including my all time favorite She Loves Me (it’s a perfect jewel box of a show). He, with his partner lyricist Sheldon Harnick, is most famous for Fiddler on the Roof, but their most prestigious award vsmr in 1959, when they won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for Fiorello!, the story of New York City mayor Fiorello H. LaGuardia, a reform Republican who took on Tammany Hall and helped reform New York City.

In addition to the Pulitzer, the musical won 4 Tony awards, including a tie for best musical with The Sound of Music. Actor Tom Bosley (who died last month) won the Tony for Best Featured Actor in a Musical.

Act I
On the Side of the Angels
Politics and Poker
Marie's Law
The Name's LaGuardia
The Bum Won
I Love a Cop
Till Tomorrow
Home Again

Act II
When Did I Fall in Love
Gentleman Jimmy
Little Tin Box
The Very Next Man

Jerry Bock's most well-known musical is undoubtedly is Fiddler on the Roof. Based on the stories by Sholem Aleichem , it’s Tevye’s attempts to maintain his family and religious traditions while outside influences encroach upon their lives.

Well a happy Tuesday to one and all. I hope everyone took the opportunity to see and experience the Juneau Symphony Orchestra performing Mahler's Symphony No. 2, Resurrection, this past weekend. As many times as I have heard the Mahler No. 2 performed and on Disc or Tape (remember those?) it is still a thrilling experience to hear it performed once more. This is a powerful piece and one which can tug mightily on the heart strings if one should really enter into it. To attempt such a piece would seem a bit out of the JSO's league, but let me tell you - they proved they can perform with the big boys. The whole orchestra was in top condition and performed very well, the brass could knock your socks off and the percussion was outrageously wonderful. There was a dynamic in the orchestra that I had not heard before. The strings were smooth and everyone else was busy doing his or her bit.
I am not sure who to pick out in the percussion, there were a number of people who stood out, in the trumpets it was Rick Trostle. There were also a number of people who had returned to perform in the Mahler: Julie Batushek on viola, Bob King on violin and Sally Schlichting on flute, to mention several. We really should be proud of our own Juneau Symphony which has become a first class symphonic orchestra.

In the meantime: here is the list for today's program:

Cello Concerto No.1 G474 by Luigi Boccherini performed by Walter Möller - cello; Hans-Martin Linde plus the Linde Consort
Symphony in C major by Georges Bizet Louis Fremaux City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra
L'Arlesienne, Suite for Orchestra, Georges Bizet Michel Plasson Orchestra du Capitole de Toulouse

Concerto for 'cello & orchestra, Op. 85 Sir Edward Elgar Jacqueline Du Pre - cello; Sir John Barbirolli the London Symphony
Symphony No. 4 in E minor, Op. 98 Johannes Brahms Wolfgang Sawallisch The London Philharmonic
Polonaise No. 6, Op. 53, "Heroic" Frederick Chopin Lang-Lang - piano
Polka from "The Age of Gold" Ballet Dmitry Shostakovich Erich Kunzel The Cincinnati Pops Orchestra
See you tomorrow!

A Little Bit of Broadway

Damn Yankees

Take one devoted fan of the Washington Senators, who would give up everything (inckuding his soul) if his beloved team could beat the New York Yankees. Well, call on the devil and he’ll show up. So Joe sells his soul -- -- and this retelling of the Faust story brings us great comedy and great music and seven Tony Award s, including best musical!

We are listening to the film version, because I can’t find the original cast recording I have or the revival cast recording. Ray Walston, Gwen Verdon and Tab Hunter star.

A Little Bit of Broadway


What do you do when your untalented leading lady is murdered? Well, the show must go on…but who gets the lead? And, less importantly for some folks, who did it? That’s the premise behind the Tony Award winning Curtains. Blackmail, nepotism (or lack of it) and of course, music and dance fill the stage (and backstage) and love conquers all!

Music John Kander
