Friday Musical Interlude–Danger Zone is Everywhere!

September 9th, 2011 at 1:41 pm

OK, OTEers, I’ve got a serious treat for you this week: the first commissioned Friday interlude in history.

I’ve got this old friend, Victor Lesser, who is a deeply happening musician–a saxophonist in the traditional of funk, jazz, and R&B, and, as you’ll hear, a singer of great soulfulness.

Now, I’ve always loved this Ray Charles song Danger Zone, and I recalled that Victor nails that bad boy.  And frankly,  given some recent reflections, “Danger Zone is everywhere” seemed apt.

So check my man out.  And to learn more about what this dude is up to–you might even want to get him to take you and your peeps to the Danger Zone sometime–go here and here.

    I thought it would be Wilson Pickett’s 1966 R and B stomper, “Danger Zone.” Just for comparison, here that is:

    Nice and, as you say, a curiously appropriate musical choice given the political weather. Previously unfamiliar with the song, so my mind was geared toward the likes of “Secret Agent Man.” Glad to be wrong and to go through a teaching moment.
