The Boop-A-Doo

The Boop-A-Doo is the 2nd in our trilogy of recordings that we are putting together to showcase our swing influences when we started CPD. The Boop-A-Doo documents: The Roaring 20’s, the Weimar Republic in Germany, The Great Depression, Pre-Code Hollywood film, Art Deco and Cotton Club Hot Jazz. We approached it as if we were recording directly onto a wax cylinder- we kept all the sounds hard and sharp. It was a very different than the lush “tape compression and reverb” approach we went for in volume 1 of this series –“Please Return the Evening- CPD Salutes the Music of the Rat Pack.” We used vintage era drum kits and the banjo for our chordal instrument. For the most part, I chose songs that combine lyrical and musical sophistication with edgy subject matter. I like this “Modernist” era because much of the art was done with a wink. That feels like artistic home for me. It was from this period that we appropriated long instrumental sections designed to highlight the action of the song- like for instance in our song Drunk Daddy. The Boop-A-Doo is great instrumental music and vocal music at the same time… and of course great songs arranged in a way that’s fun to dance to ;-) The Boop-A-Doo is the 2nd in our trilogy of recordings that we are putting together to showcase our swing influences when we started CPD. Volume 1 in this series is titled–“Please Return the Evening- CPD Salutes the Music of the Rat Pack.” The Boop-A-Doo documents: The Roaring 20’s, the Weimar Republic in Germany, The Great Depression, Pre-Code Hollywood film, Art Deco and Cotton Club Hot Jazz. These are great songs arranged in a way that’s fun to dance to ;-)
