the goose drank wine
the monkey chew tobacco on the streetcar line
the line broke, the monkey got choked
and they all went to heaven in a little rowboat

clap pat – clap pat – clap pat – clap slap
clap pat! clap your hand…
pat it on your partner’s hand…
right hand clap pat! clap your hand…
cross it with your left arm
pat your partner’s left palm
clap pat! clap your hand…
pat your partner’s right palm
and a right palm again
clap slap! clap your hand…
slap your thigh and sing a little song go…

my mother told me
if i was goody
that she would buy me
a rubber dolly
my auntie told her
i’d kissed a soldier
now she won’t buy me
a rubber dolly!

Nat King Cole – RE:GENERATIONS

Over the latter part of 2008, Nat King Cole was virtually in the studio and on the mic with some of the most talented Hip-hop, Latin, Reggae and Rock artists and producers of our day. The resulting CD, digital album and vinyl release of RE:GENERATIONS presents a landmark recording with a cosmopolitan flavor celebrating Cole’s musical and cultural contributions as reinterpreted by some of this generation’s most creative artists. RE:GENERATIONS aims to construct a tuneful bridge between generations, cultures and races. Evocative of a sleek and stylish metrolounge where music and the visual arts converge, RE:GENERATIONS honors Nat King Cole’s continued cultural influence around the planet, 90 years after his birth.

Says Carole Cole, Nat King Cole’s daughter and CEO of King Cole Partners & Productions, “As the curators of our father’s music, image and likeness, my sisters and I strive to keep Dad in the mix and as innovative as he was back in the day. With RE:GENERATIONS, we want to musically and visually bridge the so-called generation gap and hopefully create mutual admiration and respect between teens, parents and grands of every culture. Who knows? This project may be a cool catalyst that inspires a new kind of dialogue between the generations. We have no doubts that if Nat were here today, he would embrace all of the artists on this record as well as the ones we were unable to get next to. He would want to produce them and encourage them to leave their own indelible mark on the cultural landscape. And as a bona fide music lover, Dad would buy their music and be a loyal fan.”

In an altogether modern and collaborative approach, many of the world’s most pioneering musicians, producers and DJs have joined together to bring each of their distinct styles to 13 of Cole’s outstanding recordings for RE:GENERATIONS. Also, several respected Los Angeles visual artists have drawn inspiration from Cole’s music, style and cultural influence to create custom artwork for the release. Executive Produced by Carole Cole and Michaelangelo L’Acqua, the album contains the manifold talents of Cee-Lo, The Roots, will.i.am with Natalie Cole, Cut Chemist, Just Blaze, Nas with Salaam Remi, Souldiggaz with Izza Kizza, Michaelangelo L’Acqua with Bebel Gilberto, Stephen and Damian Marley, Bitter:Sweet, Brazilian Girls, Amp Fiddler and TV On The Radio. Re:Generations is as much a colorful and culturally-diverse soundscape as it is a 21st Century journey in the lexicon of Nat King Cole’s catalog.

RE:GENERATIONS celebrates a universal love of music, the one language that brings us all together and honors the multifaceted and pioneering legacy of Nat King Cole. This inspired congregation of audio and visual art acknowledges the timeless appeal of Cole’s catalog. From its invention to its re-invention, from each generation to the next, Cole’s music is always fresh and innovative.

Minnie Ripperton Attacked by a Lion

Minnie Julia Riperton (November 8, 1947 – July 12, 1979) was an American singer-songwriter best known for her five-and-a-half octave vocal range and her 1975 single “Lovin’ You”.

Adventures in Paradise LP – KILLER! The key collaborators here, outside of Minnie’s songwriting husband Richard Rudolph, include keyboardist Joe Sample, guitarist Larry Carlton, saxophonist Tom Scott, and harpist Dorothy Ashby. The album’s three central songs were co-written with Leon Ware, who had come up with the Jackson 5’s “I Wanna Be Where You Are” and was on the brink of writing what would become the entirety of Marvin Gaye’s “I Want You” along with his own excellent “Musical Massage”. Each of the Riperton/Rudolph/Ware are aural sex — especially “Inside My Love” (a Top 30 R&B single), basically a hot swooning jam filled with “come to bed” like. If it weren’t for the supremely seductive innocence in Minnie’s voice, the words would likely fall flat in their directness (“You can see inside me/Will you come inside me?/Do you wanna ride inside my love?”) – anyways – check it….it’s killer… also check the video posted below which shows Minnie being attacked by the lion on the cover of the LP during the photo-shoot!
