about

Duke Ellington was once asked by an interviewer, “which of your many classic compositions is your favorite?” His answer, “the next one.”
Here in Panoramaland, we’ve been releasing a new track every month since May 2014 through our Song-of-the-Month club, Good Music For You, always with great anticipation. We hope you enjoy the music on this CD, our second sampler from the GMFY series. And if you’d like to hear more, visit our website (PanoramaLandNOLA.com) and join the club to receive… The Next One.

This album begins and ends with Caribbean New Year celebrations. There are also two Christmas songs, as well music for two Jewish holidays, Hanukkah and Purim. Plus you’ll hear special guest clarinetist Dr. Michael White, vocalists Yulene Velásquez and Jane Harvey Brown as well as piano man, singer and raconteur Davis Rogan.

Track Name: Panorama Jazz Band feat. Yulene Velásquez - Recordando A Venezuela
Lyrics in Spanish and English translation:

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 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
I'm gonna have my say
I'm going to every discotheque
I'm gonna dance dance dance ooh
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 shaky 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

(refrain)

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 shaky 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 derivative 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 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.
