Sing Books with Emily, the Blog

Archive for the ‘Cabaret’ Category

I accidentally pushed the WordPress PUBLISH button when I wasn’t quite ready.

But have decided not to UNpublish this clearly half-baked post.

The plan is, as is the plan, really, with every post in this blog, to keep adding to it as info, ideas and inspiration arise.

What’s fer sher is that this is a delightful song and kids would LOVE it…and get a little geography lesson too boot.

I’m going to find a way to make a book for this deeeeeeelightful song.

I’VE GOT A GAL IN KALAMAZOO
Words and Music by Mack Gordon and Harry Warren 

Hi there Tex, how’s your new romance?
The one you met at the campus dance.

Wait until you see her you’ll agree,
My hometown gal’s the only one for me.

A-B-C-D-E-F-G-H I got a gal in Kalamazoo,
Don’t wanna boast,
But I know she’s the toast
Of Kalamazoo-zoo-zoo-zoo-zoo-zoo.

Years have gone by, my, my, how she grew,
I liked her looks
When I carried her books
In Kalamazoo-zoo-zoo-zoo-zoo.

I’m gonna send a wire,
Hoppin’ on a flyer,
Leavin’ today;
Am I dreamin’?
I can hear her screamin’,
“Hiya, Mister Jackson” ev’rything’s O-K-A-L-A-M-A-Z-O

Oh, what a gal, a real pipperoo;
I’ll make my bid
For that freckle-faced kid,
I’m hurryin’ to.
I’m goin’ to Michigan to see the sweetest gal in Kalamazoo.

A-B-C-D-E-F-G-H I got a gal in Kalamazoo,
Don’t wanna boast,
But I know she’s the toast
Of Kalamazoo-zoo-zoo-zoo-zoo-zoo.

Years have gone by, my, my, how she grew,
I liked her looks
When I carried her books
In Kalamazoo-zoo-zoo-zoo-zoo.

I’m gonna send a wire,
Hoppin’ on a flyer,

SINGABLE PICTURE BOOK WISHES 2 (SONGS THAT WISH TO BE ILLUSTRATED)

There songs are BEGGING to become Singable Picture Books
http://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2011/03/06/singable-picture-book-wishes-2-songs-that-wish-to-be-illustrated/

In early 2014, I lead a Girl Scout troop meeting to earn the Musician Badge and created this document to support my efforts. Developing this primer, my focus was to share some of what I’ve learned, techniques I’ve developed, and some of my personal practices for music making.

Today, I hope is that this information will be helpful to anyone who wants to sing a song for others.

how to sing a song bird

The process in this document is based on the cabaret process and technique I’ve developed over many years in order to sing a song with honesty, authenticity and a unique vision.  This cabaret style also applies to my work with Sing Books with Emily.  For me, the only difference between singing in a Cabaret or Sing Books performance (or in any instance in which I would share a song with others) is the venue and the age of the majority of the audience…and that I’m often holding a book/illustration of the song.  Otherwise, my approach is the same.

This technique, with a bit of tweaking, also works largely for crafting songs as a character in a musical.  It is a time-worn technique for actors to find what is similar within themselves and work that into the crafting and performing of their characters (and thus the songs they sing).   I’ve heard it said that cabaret performers make terrific performers in musicals, but musical performers don’t necessarily make good cabaret performers.  The focus of a good cabaret performance, or in my view, any performance of a song for others, is knowledge of the material, a personal vision for the song,  and a story to tell.  This creates a true, simple, honest and authentic performance-gift to give to those who will sit with you to hear what you have to sing.

I’ve not made up one of these posts in over a month…overwhelmed as I was with family activities and mostly the SNOW DAYS!  We had a wonderful time, though, in all cases.

In this month of Sundays, I got to share 21 performances and visit (most of the time I’m singing to 2 classes at once) the classes of Ms. Everett (K), Ms. Campbell (K), Ms. Shorter (K), Ms. Mason (K), Miss Robin (Pre-K), Mr. Mitchell (K), Ms. Anctil (K), Ms. Sackett (1), Mr. Grasso (3), Mr. Koppelman (2), Ms. Morgan (K), Ms. Coffman (3), Ms. Strickland (3), Ms. Howard (2), Ms. Allen (2).  Most of these classes are at Tuckahoe Elementary, but I also get to visit Claremont Elementary and Carlin Springs Elementary.  Most of these classes I visited two or three times in the month.

Whew!!

Now for the marvelous songs.  In each of the visits, we sang a selection of this fabulous list of songs (listed, generally, in alphabetical order),

I’m learning to play the guitar and have decided it it high time to try some music that began in my own brain.  I was reading a poem in this gorgeous book and a tune for it washed over me.  I sent the tune to my friend Paul Raiman and www.MyRehearsalPianist.com and he came up with all the rest.  I think I’m ready to learn to play this on guitar…maybe.  We’ll see.

SONG OF THE BOAT FROM WATER SINGS BLUE

http://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2012/05/26/a-tune-for-song-of-the-boat-from-the-new-book-of-poetry-water-sings-blue/

The other night my dear friend Caroline and I went to see THE TALLEST TREE IN THE FOREST at Arena Stage in Washington, DC.  It was an amazing one-man show about Paul Robeson, written and performed by Daniel Beaty.  The show takes the audience through Paul Robeson’s career as a performer and activist.  Near the beginning of the evening, Mr. Beaty sang GET ON BOARD LITTLE CHILDREN as a spiritual performed by Paul Robeson.  I’d never heard the song before that very day, but first heard it earlier in the day when I was researching the song that I didn’t know inside the pages of the book WHEN I MET ROBIN.  It’s funny how things work that way.  You’re introduced to something and, Bob’s Your Uncle, there it is again…or likely, it’s been there all along but, suddenly, you can recognize it.

Recognize it, I did.

GET ON BOARD LITTLE CHILDREN
Traditional Words and Music
Additional Lyrics and Adaptation by Emily Leatha Everson Gleichenhaus

CHORUS 
(sing between each verse)
Get on board little children
Get on board little children
Get on board little children
There room for many more

The train of life is coming
I hear it close at hand
I hear the car wheels moving
A-rumbling through the land

CHORUS

The fare is cheep and all can go
The rich and poor are there
No second class aboard this train
No difference in the fare

CHORUS

Each rider on this train has something
Great to give the world
That makes the world a better place
For every boy and girl

CHORUS (x2)
