Track Name: Panorama Jazz Band - Peacock Tail Feather
Peacock Tail Feather

There are many types of birds and they all wear feathers
I should know for I was carried off one day
And many things one can’t explain such as tides and whether
Or not people mean exactly what they say
You miss me since I left you it’s raining while I’m gone
But if you really want me back you’ll listen to my song…

Go and find a Peacock Tail Feather
Hang it on the wall
You can use it to determine whether
I’ll be home by Fall

Then you get that Peacock Tail Feather
Place it on the door
Leave it there to show the neighbors
I’ll be home by four

But if you really need me
You’ll know just what to do
Just go and fetch a fat young goose
And cook enough for two and…

Then you grab that Peacock Tail Feather
Stake it on the moon
Someday soon we’ll be together
I’ll be home by June

I’ll be home very soon!
Track Name: Panorama Jazz Band feat. Yulene Velásquez - Recordando a Venezuela
Nostalgia, me lleno de nostalgia
Al sentirme ausente de mi patria querida
Recordando su gente , sus pueblos, sus praderas
Y mientras más recuerdo, más te quiero Venezuela

Me dicen que ahora estás más bella,
Que los que te visitan se quedan encantados
Se emociona mi alma y emprendo una oración
Dando gracias al cielo y a nuestro Libertador.

Orgullosa me siento al decir "Venezuela"
Pues tienes para todos un poco de amistad
Aquí lo he comprobado desde un pais lejano
Todo el que te visita quiere volver allá.


English Translation:

Nostalgia, I am filled with nostalgia
When I feel far away from my beloved country
Remembering its people, its villages, its meadows...
And the more memories I have, I love you more Venezuela.

They tell me that now you are more beautiful,
That everyone who visits you is enchanted.
It thrills my soul and I undertake a prayer thanking
Heaven and our Deliverer.

I feel proud to say "Venezuela"
Because you have for everyone a bit of friendship.
Even from this far away country, I have the proof
Everyone who visits you wants to return.
Track Name: Panorama Jazz Band - Mellow Down Easy
You jump jump here, jump jump there
Jump jump jump everywhere
Then you mellow down easy
Mellow down easy
Mellow down easy like you really wanna blow your top

You shake shake here, shake shake there
Shake shake shake everywhere
Then you mellow down easy
Mellow down easy
Mellow down easy like you really wanna blow your top

You wiggle wiggle here, wiggle wiggle there
Wiggle wiggle wiggle everywhere
Then you mellow down easy
Mellow down easy
Mellow down easy like you really wanna blow your top
Track Name: Panorama Jazz Band feat. Jane Harvey Brown and Davis Rogan - Shame Shame Shame
Can't stop me now hear what I say
My feet got to move so get out my way

Till the break of day I say

Shame shame shame, shame on you
If you can't dance too
I say shame shame shame shame shame shame shame
Shame on you
If you can't dance too

Don't stop the motion
If you get the notion
You can't stop the groove
'Cos you just won't move
Got my sun-roof down
Got my diamonds in the back
So put on your shakey wig baby
If you don't I ain't comin' back

(refrain)

If you don't want to go
Remember one monkey don't stop no show
My body needs action ain't gonna blow
Yes I'm going out, I'm going to find a dancin' man
If you really think you're fast
Try to catch me if you can

(Refrain)

Instrumental

'Cos you just won't move
Got my sun-roof down
Got my diamonds in the back
So put on your shakey wig baby
If you don't I ain't comin' back

(refrain)

Shame. Shame. Shame on you, if you can't dance too.
Track Name: Panorama Jazz Band feat. Jane Harvey Brown - La Mazouk En Avant
Lyrics in Creole and English translation:

La mazouk en avant.
Kavalié ka pointé ,
Les dames subordonnées
Les mains sur le coté.
Robes, jupons, souliers d'or,
Colliers, foulards madras,
Peau kréyol Martinique,
Yo peu di yo joli.
Au bordèl Lè yo bèl!
Yo dou, yo dou, yo dou!
Yo joli, yo joli!
Pa ni, pa ni konsa.
Junn' kon vieu ka pasé,
Étranjé ka rivé,
Yo ka di Martinique
Pa ni pli dou ki sa.


The mazurka is beginning.
The gentlemen are pointing,
The ladies who accompany them
Have their hands on their hips.
Dresses, skirts, gold shoes,
Necklaces, madras scarves,
Creole skin of Martinique,
You can say they are pretty.
They are beautiful!
They are sweet, sweet, sweet!
They are pretty, pretty!
There is none other, none other like them.
Young and old who pass by,
Strangers who arrive.
They will say there is no other place
As sweet as Martinique.
Track Name: Panorama Jazz Band feat. Davis Rogan - Enjoy Yourself (It's Later Than You Think)
Ben:
You work and work, for years and years,
You're always on the go.
You never take a minute off,
Too busy making dough.
Some day you say, you'll have some fun,
When you're a millionaire.
Imagine all that fun you'll have in your old rocking chair...

Chorus:
Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think.
Enjoy yourself, while you're still in the pink.
The years go by as quickly as a wink.
Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself! It's later than you think.

Davis:
You save and scrimp, you scrimp and save,
You're toiling every day.
Then through a series of complex derivitave swaps
Your savings go away.
Stability is relative, you'll always have that fear.
My advice for investing is to buy your friend a beer.

Ben:
I met a man from 'round the block
With two artificial lungs.
Can't smoke no more, can't drink no more
But he still likes to have his fun.
He says to me, "I'm going down
But I'm still in the game you know.
So you run home and get that clarinet and I'll play the piano.

Davis:
(Monologue in praise of New Orleans' Katrina expatriates)

Chorus
Track Name: Panorama Jazz Band feat. Jane Harvey Brown - Wassail Wassail
Wassail, Wassail

Wassail and Wassail all over the town
The cup it is white and the ale it is brown
The cup it is made of the good ashen tree
And so is the malt of the best barley

For it’s your wassail and it’s our wassail…
And it’s “joy be to you” and a jolly wassail.

There was an old man and he had an old cow
And how for to keep her he didn’t know how
He built up a barn for to keep his cow warm
And a drop or two of cider will do us no harm

No harm, no harm, no harm, no harm…
And a drop or two of cider will do us no harm

Oh where is the maid with the silver headed pin
To open the door and let us come in?
Oh master and missus are sitting by the fire
Pray think upon poor travelers a-travelling in the mire

For it’s your wassail and it’s our wassail…
And it’s “joy be to you” and a jolly wassail.
Track Name: Panorama Jazz Band - I'm Gonna Be A Wheel Someday
I'm gonna be a wheel someday
I'm gonna be somebody
I'm gonna be a real gone cat
Then I won't want you

Everything about to go my way
And I won't need nobody
I'm gonna be a real gone cat
Then I won't want you

You may cry cry cry
You were high high high
You be wondrin' why I don't look at you when I
Go rollin' by

I'm gonna be a wheel someday
I'm gonna be somebody
I'm gonna be a real gone cat
Then I won't want you

Track Name: Panorama Jazz Band - The Tighten Up
Lyrics:

The Tighten Up
(Buttier/Bell. Additional lyrics by Ben Schenck)

Ah, that sounds pretty good.
Let's make a party, y'all. Hey!

Hey everybody, I'm Ben Schenck from the Panorama Jazz Band in New Orleans, Louisiana.
We don't only play jazz but we do all kinds of other styles of music too like Jewish and Caribbean...
Right now we're gonna do a little Top 40 number you might remember from 1968 called "The Tighten Up."

First let's tighten up on the drums.
Aaaw yeah!
A'ight now let's tighten up on the tuba.
That's pretty deep!
Now let's bring that banjo in.
Now tighten up on the accordion.

Ooh, that's nice and tight!
"It's tight like that Louie!"
Lu: "Roger"
Outasite cuz don't forget: Tight Makes Right.
All right well, get ready for the break.

Now make it mellow.

Oh do The Tighten Up, oh yeah.
Now do The Tighten Up, it's all right.
Do it to the left, now do it to the right.
Oh do The Tighten Up, but don't get too tight.

Yeah!
Y'all dancin' out there?
Ah, good.
A'ight well, let's do this again.

Now tighten up on the drums.
Hey look, this time instead of tightening up all the other instruments, let's try a different idea...
Everybody cut loose!

(Instrumental Jam Up)

All right, now make it mellow.
Yeah!

Do The Tighten Up. Oh The Tighten Up.
Do it to the left and do it to the right.
Do it with the one that you love all night.
But don't get too tight!

All right, this has been a lot of fun y'all.
We had a real good party but we're on a tight schedule.
Now I think it's about time we get out.
Let's make a tight ending.
We're all gonna end together right here.
Everybody on the downbeat.
4 - 3 - 2 - 1!
Track Name: Panorama Jazz Band - Miss The Mississippi And You
Miss The Mississippi and You
as performed by the Panorama Jazz Band

Verse:
I'm growing tired of the big city lights
Tired of the glamour and tired of the sights
In all my dreams I am roaming once more
Back to my home on the old river shore

Chorus:
I am sad and weary far away from home
Miss the Mississippi and you dear
Days are dark and dreary everywhere I roam
Miss the Mississippi and you

Roaming the wide world over
Always alone and blue, so blue

Nothing seems to cheer me under heaven's dome
Miss the Mississippi and you

Verse (spoken):
When you live in the city, you end up making all kinda horrible sacrifices
You're unable to connect because you're wedded to your electronic devices!
(sung)
All's I want is to take the canoe,
float down the river and snuggle with you

Chorus:
Memories are bringing happy days of yore
Miss the Mississippi and you
Mocking birds are singing 'round the cabin door
Miss the Mississippi and you

Roamin the wide world over
Always alone and blue

Longing for my homeland, muddy water shore
Miss the Mississippi and you
Track Name: Antoine Diel with the Panorama Jazz Band - Dahil Sa Iyo ("Because of You")
Sa buhay ko'y labis
Ang hirap at pasakit,
Ng pusong umiibig
Mandi'y wala ng langit
At ng lumigaya, hinango mo sa dusa
Tanging ikaw sinta, ang aking pag-asa.

Dahil sa iyo, nais kong mabuhay
Dahil Sa Iyo, hanggang mamatay
Dapat mong tantuin, wala ng ibang giliw
Puso ko'y tanungin, ikaw at ikaw rin.

Dahil sa iyo, ako'y lumigaya
Pagmamahal, ay alayan ka
Kung tunay man ako, ay alipinin mo
Ang lahat sa buhay ko, dahil sa iyo.

Because of you, there's a joy in living.
Because of you, life is heavenly.
I never lived before, never felt a single thrill before,
My heart stood still before, Darlin' I'm in ecstasy.

Because of you, love is sweet and tender.
And this my love I will offer you:
If you will care for me, all things to you I'll be.
My heart is ever true because of you.


=================================================
English translation of Tagalog lyric:

Long have I endured in my life.
The pain and sorrows from Love arise.
Then you came and redeemed me, my dear,
My only hope in my darkest fears.

Because of you, I yearn to be alive.
Because of you, ‘til death (you) must realize
In my heart I know there is only you.
And ask my heart, you’ll know that this is true.

Because of you, I found happiness.
That to you I offer this love that is so blessed.
Though indeed I may be a slave for loving you so true
It matters not to me, ‘cause everything’s because of you.

Five little candles, six little candles
Seven little candles, eight candles for me.
Track Name: Panorama Jazz Band feat. Jane Harvey Brown - I Wonder As I Wander
I wonder as I wander

I wonder as I wander out under the sky
How Jesus the Savior did come for to die
For poor or'n'ry sinners like you and like I
I wonder as I wander out under the sky

When Mary birthed Jesus 'twas in a cow's stall
With shepherds and farmers and wise men and all
But high from God's heaven a star's light did fall
And the promise of ages it then did recall

If Jesus had wanted for any wee thing
A star from the sky or a bird on the wing
Or all of God's Angels in heaven to sing
He surely could have it 'cause he was the King

I wonder as I wander out under the sky
How Jesus the Savior did come for to die
For poor or'n'ry sinners like you and like I
I wonder as I wander out under the sky
Track Name: Panorama Brass Band - Oh, Didn't He Ramble!
We don't actually sing on this track, but when we do sing it, the lyrics go like this...

Oh, didn't he ramble, didn't he ramble
Rambled all around, in and out the town
Didn't he ramble, didn't he ramble
He rambled til the Butcher cut him down.

His feet was in the market
His head was in the street
All the women passin' by said
"Look at that monkey meat!"

Didn't he ramble, didn't he ramble
He rambled til the Butcher cut him down.
Track Name: Panorama Jazz Band feat. Joe Darensbourg - Κανείς Εδώ Δεν Τραγουδά (Kaneis Edo Den Tragouda - "No One Here Sings"
Κανείς Εδώ Δεν Τραγουδά (Kaneis Edo Den Tragouda)
By Nikos Papazoglou

Ραγίζει απόψε η καρδιά
Ragizei apopse i kardia
με το μπαγλαμαδάκι
Me to mpaglamadaki
πολλά κομμάτια έγινε
Polla kommatia egine
σπασμένο ποτηράκι
Spasmeno potiraki

Θυμήθηκα που πίναμε
Thimithika pou piname
σε τούτο το τραπέζι
Se touto to trapezi
τώρα ποιος ξέρει πού γυρνά
Tora poios xerei pou girna
ποιος ξέρει τι γυρεύει
Poios xerei ti girewei

Κανείς εδώ δεν τραγουδά
Kaneis edo den tragouda
κανένας δε χορεύει
Kanenas de horewei
ακούνε μόνο την πενιά
Akoune mono tin penia
κι ο νους τους ταξιδεύει
Ki o nous tous taxidewei

Τυχαία δήθεν αν τη δεις
Tihaia dithen an ti deis
φέρ' την στο ταβερνάκι
Fer'tin sto tavernaki
κρυμμένος θα 'μαι στη γωνιά
Krimmenos tha 'mai sti gonia
για να τη δω λιγάκι
Gia na ti do ligaki

Κανείς εδώ δεν τραγουδά
Kaneis edo den tragouda
κανένας δε χορεύει
Kanenas de horewei
ακούνε μόνο την πενιά
Akoune mono tin penia
κι ο νους τους ταξιδεύει
Ki o nous tous taxidewei

English translation:

No One Here Sings

Today the heart cracks
With the baglama*
It all fell to pieces
Like broken glass

I remembered, we used to drink
At this very table
Now who knows where she's running to
Who knows what she's looking for

No one here sings
No one here dances
They only hear the tune
And their mind drifts

If you happen to see her
Bring her to the tavern
I'll be hidden in the corner
To see her a little

No one here sings
No one here dances
They only hear the tune
And their mind drifts

* A baglama is a small instrument of the lute family. In Greek folk music, it is the symbolic companion of the heart-broken or down-trodden.
Track Name: Panorama Jazz Band - Je Te Veux ("I Want You")
Lyrics by Henry Pacory

REFRAIN:
J'ai compris ta détresse
Cher amoureux
Et je cède à tes voeux
Fais de moi ta maîtresse
Loin de nous la sagesse
Plus de tristesse
J'aspire à l'instant précieux
Où nous serons heureux
Je te veux

Je n'ai pas de regrets
Et je n'ai qu'une envie
Près de toi là tout près
Vivre toute ma vie
Que mon corps soit le tien
Que ta lèvre soit mienne
Que ton coeur soit le mien
Et que toute ma chair soit tienne

REFRAIN

Oui je vois dans tes yeux
La divine promesse
Que ton coeur amoureux
Vient chercher ma caresse
Enlacés pour toujours
Brûlant des mêmes flammes
Dans un rêve d'amour
Nous échangerons nos deux âmes

REFRAIN


English translation:

REFRAIN:
I understand your distress
Dear lover
And I yield to your wishes
Make me your mistress
Far from us is wisdom
No more sadness
I look forward to the beautiful moment
When we will be happy
I want you

I have no regrets
And I have only one desire
Beside you there so close
To live all my life
May my body be yours
May your lips be mine
May your heart be mine
And may all my flesh be yours

REFRAIN

Yes I see in your eyes
The divine promise
That your loving heart
Comes looking for my caress
Joined forever
Burning in the same flames
In a dream of love
We will swap our two souls

REFRAIN
Track Name: Panorama Jazz Band - In The Summertime
In The Summertime (Updated lyrics by Ben Schenck)

In the summertime when the weather is fine
You can reach right up and you can touch the sky.
When the weather's fine you got livin', you got rhythm on your mind.
Grab a friend, take a drive, go out and see what you can find.

If her daddy's poor take him out for a meal,
If her daddy's rich, shoot, order the veal!
Park along the lake, you can kiss or just discuss philosophy.
Just don't do nothin' for which you might owe an apology.

When the weather's fine, yeah it's party party time,
We like to dance and play while we push the paradigm.
Get some drums and horns, makin' rhythm with some wisdom is the key.
Add a banjo and accordion for that epic auditorium harmony!
Track Name: Panorama Jazz Band - Bogalusa Strut
Hey, what's the matter now?
Hey, what's the matter now?
Hey, what's the matter now?
You better run home and tell your Mama...

Hey, what's the matter now?
Hey, what's the matter now?
You better run home and tell your Ma,
That Panorama band's in town!
Track Name: Panorama Jazz Band - No Buts, No Maybes
No Buts, No Maybes

Baby, no buts and no maybes
Lately you been driving me crazy
What have I done to you?

Honey, I ain't got no more money
But lately you been acting funny
Can't do a thing with you

Every time that we go out
This is all you talk about
Things I did and things I do
What you want poor little me to do?
Track Name: Panorama Jazz Band - (Now And Then There's) A Fool Such As I
(Now And Then There's) A Fool Such As I

Pardon Me if I'm sentimental when we say good-bye.
Don't be angry with me if I cry.

When you're gone, yet I dream a little dream of years gone by.
Now and then there's a fool such as I.

Now and then there's a fool such as I am over you.
You taught me how to love and now you say that we are through.

I'm a fool but I love you dear, until the day I die.
Now and then there's a fool such as I.

Now and then there's a fool such as I am over you.
You taught me how to live and now you say that we are through.

I'm a fool but I love you dear, until the day I die.
Now and then there's a fool such as I am over you.
Now and then there's a fool such as I.
Track Name: Panorama Jazz Band featuring John Boutté and Dr. Michael White - Box Car Shorty
(Special thanks to Panorama friend Ray Funk and Trinidad language expert Dr. Lise Winer for help with the lyrics. There were a few of them I really couldn't make out.  -Ben)

Box Car Shorty

Well I’ve got to tell you ‘bout this mighty man
Mighty man from across the pond
Box Car Shorty is the man I mean
Chunky, short in height but like dynamite
He's so witty and so powerful
Moves boxcars, don’t care near or far
Shorty got his name from boxcar fame
But that isn’t all, he answers any call

Chorus:
Shorty, Box Car Shorty
Shorty, you’re just a wonder man
Lord, man, you just kickin’
Mighty, with everyone you walk
Shorty, Box Car Shorty
Shorty, you set the world to talk
Sly like a mongoose, chock full of might
Got all de world, man, it's lock up tight

Verse:
Shorty said that he would love to fly
Way up high past the stratosphere
Once up there nobody would deny
That he'd land on Mars and solve the cause of wars

Chorus

Verse:
So, he went up in a yaeroplane
Somersault, landed on his head
Crowd start yelling, thought that he was dead
But he got right up and wiped his face instead!

Chorus
Track Name: Panorama Jazz Band featuring John Boutté - Happy Land
Gang (singing): "There is a happy land, far, far aw- heywhahuh!?"

Krazy: "Hold it Panorama!"
Ben: "What's the trouble Krazy?"
Krazy: "Faster! Faster! This is jazz music, not some dreamy waltz! Paul, gimme a roll off."

(Jazz version)
There's a hep-hep-heppy lend, fur fur away
Where they has them ham n eggs several times a day
Oh hear them bordas yell, when they hear that kitchen bell,
They gonna give the landlord he-
Several times a day

Gang: "Ah yeah, solid, right on..."

Ben:"Let's find out who this Krazy Kat really is. Oh Krazy... Krazy!"
Krazy: "Yesssss?"
Ben: "Seeing you here, I take it that the lady of the house is not in, no?"
Krazy:" Ah, but she is..."

Ben: "Hmmm....I will attempt it again. Ah, lady. Seeing you here, I take it that the gentleman of the house is not at home, no?"
Krazy: "Oh, but he is!"

(Dreamy Waltz)

Ben: "Ah, sly one... You say the lady of the house is in, and the gentleman of the house is in. Well then I take it that they are both in, yes?"
Krazy: "No. They ain't."

Ben: "SAY! Who is in anyway?"
Krazy: "Me."
>>Zip-POW!<<
Krazy: (sigh) "...Aaah. Love letter written on a brick."

(Out chorus)
"My heart is aching with a pain
Although there ain't no sign of rain
So haste my love, I can't wait much longa
My weakness is gettin' stronga!
When your sweety ain't around
It's just like music without a sound
Let's have ham n eggs ev'ry day
In that happy land far away!
Track Name: Panorama Jazz Band feat. Mark Rubin, Jew of Oklahoma - Spin the Dreidel
(Yodeling)
Mark Rubin, Jew of Oklahoma, here with the Panorama Jazz Band wishing you and yours a happy Hanukkah from down here in balmy New Orleans. Let's play a little dreidel!

It's my favorite time of year, gather family far and near.
Its called the festival of lights, we light the candle each eight nights.

There's kreplekh and gefilte fish, that's cousin Channah's favorite dish.
Bubbe, Zeyde tantz a valtz, smell the latkes fry in shmaltz.

Let's all go
Play spin the dreidel dreidel, play spin the dreidel.
It's the feast of Hanukkah come dance as long you're able. (2x)

Menorah in the window bright illuminates the darkest night
For the Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, Jew, Hindu, Apikorsim* too!

Let's all
Come spin the dreidel dreidel, play spin the dreidel.
It's the feast of Hanukkah, you're welcome at the table.
Come spin the dreidel dreidel, play spin the dreidel.
It's the feast of Hanukkah, let's dance while we are able.

Ha ha ha! Come on gimel! Papa needs some gelt!

(Ins Yiddish)

Breng mir broyt un breng mir vayn, lomir ale freylekh zeyn!
kh'hob shoyn latkes, fleysh un fish un a vays bedektn tish.**

Let's all
Spin spin the dreidel dreidel, spin spin the dreidel.
It's the feast the Haunukkah let's dance as long we're able.
Spin spin the dreidel dreidel, spin spin the dreidel.
It's the feast the Haunukkah you're welcome at the table.

Zets!***

*Non-believers (ie "Epicureans")
**Bring me bread and bring me wine, let's all be happy!
I already have latkes, meat and fish and a white covered table.

Track Name: Panorama Jazz Band Trio feat. Yulene Velásquez - Bridge Over Troubled Water
Bridge Over Troubled Water

When you're weary, feeling small
When tears are in your eyes I will dry them all
I'm on your side when times get rough
And friends just can't be found
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

When you're down and out, when you're on the street
When evening falls so hard I will comfort you
I'll take your part when darkness comes
And pain is all around
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on silver girl, sail on by
Your time has come to shine all your dreams are on their way
see how they shine if you need a friend
I'm sailing right behind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
