Send in the clowns

Tony is the undisputed king of the clown covers.   Here’s an amazing example – Brazilian popular clown Carequinha, in a flying saucer!   It’s great when categories cross-pollinate (where do you file this one?).

Ska’s the limit

“Space Flight”   Carlos Malcolm and His Afro-Jamaican Rhythms (“The Sound of the Soil”)   Carlos plays Trombone and (little did I know til just now) wrote most of the incidental music to the James Bond movie “Dr. No”     He had a big mid-sixties hit with his version of the “Bonanza” TV Theme called…”Bonanza Ska”   I like his song “No Jestering” a hit in 1974.   And who can forget his other million seller, “Fattie Bum Bum”.
