Belatedly, RIP Tim Hauser

Yesterday, I was both taken aback and saddened to learn that the founding member of the group Manhattan Transfer had died in October. This is a group that I've enjoyed for many, many years -- and have seen perform live 3 times. While the group's repertoire is large and varied, it was its vocalese and a cappella that arrested and held captive my attention lo, these many years.

While not performing only vocalese, which was what Lamberts, Hendricks, and Ross did, I think this group either kept alive or helped keep alive that concept of vocalese. In the process of keeping it "out there" for audiences, then we have Haley and Casey come along to perform Moanin.

Tim Hauser NY obit:

IMO the best a capella recording MT ever made (it's Tim singing when the verse kicks in):

A Foreign Affair





One of the best "vocalese" renditions I think exists

Until I Met You (Corner Pocket - Basie)





RIP El Dorado Caddy, you are my L.A. Daddy -- you are and will be much missed.

RE: RIP
Colleen McCullough died 1/30/2015.

Quote:Yesterday, the best-selling author and neuroscientist Colleen McCullough died at the age of seventy-seven. McCullough was one of Australia’s best-known and most popular novelists, whose success was firmly established with the publication of her second novel The Thorn Birds in 1977. It was later made into a highly successful TV miniseries starring Richard Chamberlain. McCullough followed on her success with a string of bestsellers including An Indecent Obsession (1981), The Ladies of Missalonghi (1987), The Touch (2003) and her Masters of Rome series of historical novels. McCullough’s books have sold in excess of 30 million copies.

But McCullough had originally studied medicine before successfully moving into neuroscience and becoming a respected teacher at the Department of Neurology at the Yale Medical School in New Haven, CT.

Here's a sexist, moronic piece of an obituary in an Australian paper.

That has become the story, but she was a very accomplished woman and an excellent and prolific author.
