Nights At The Roundtable - Alec Wilder Octet - 1939

Nights At The Roundtable with The Alec Wilder Octet, recorded for Brunswick Records, March 30, 1939.

Alec Wilder - the Father of Eccentricity.


Switching it up this week (at least tonight) and adding some Alec Wilder to the mix. I had already posted something on him in December of last year, talking about his wild eccentricities and how they paved the way for a lot of creative music.

Tonight it's the flip side of the track I played last December. Walking Home In Spring is typical of the Wilder style. It was recorded on March 30, 1939.
