Celebrating the Beatles – “A Day in the Life” (Lennon-McCartney)

The recording of “A Day in the Life” started on Thursday evening on January 19th, 1967 in Abbey Road Studios.

John Lennon’s masterpiece…

I would also like to note that the bridge to the song was written by Paul McCartney. “A Day in a Life” is the closing track on “Sargent Pepper” album. I can’t describe the effect it had on me at fourteen when I first heard it!

Ain’t MisBehavin’ (Waller-Razaf) – 7 String Guitar Solo

“Ain’t Misbehavin‘ is a 1929 stride jazz/early swing composition with 32 bars in AABA measure with a slow-to-moderate pace. With lyrics by Andy Razaf and score by Thomas “Fats” Waller and Harry Brooks,  the number was created specifically as a theme song for the Razaf/Waller/Brooks Broadway musical comedy Connie’s Hot Chocolates. In a 1941 interview with Eddie “Rochester” Anderson, Fats said the song was written while “lodging” in alimony prison, and that is why he was not “misbehaving”. (Source: Wikipedia)
