After something of a hiatus, Podcast 598 marks the return to Straight no Chaser of another set of Spooky Songs for Hallowe’en. Some years I’ve focused on a theme (2014 had a Devils theme), and other years it’s just been a grab bag of musical tricks and treats. If you are interested in checking out previous year’s selections for a Hallowe’en soundtrack, you can download Podcasts 452, 387 , 309 , and 240 .
Here’s hoping all your candy is chocolate, your tricks are few, and your treats many. Musical selections include the very spooky:
Nina Simone - "I Put a Spell On You"
Jackie McLean - "Frankenstein"
Albert Ayler - "Ghosts"
Rosemary Clooney - "The Wobblin' Goblin"
Troy Roberts - "Trick or Treat (Featuring Jeff Tain Watts, Silvano Monasterios & Chris Smith)"
Medeski, Martin & Wood - "Dracula"
Dom Minasi - "The Vampire's Revenge"
Dick Jacobs & His Orchestra - "The Horror of Dracula"
