In the October issue of Mix magazine, there is an article which should interest music fans, and especially those who enjoy the hit HBO series “Boardwalk Empire.”  The music won a Grammy last year, and now the 2nd volume has been released.  This article, besides featuring a Blogfinger black and white image of Vince Giordano’s Nighthawks orchestra, tells the story of how meticulous attention resulted in an authentic soundtrack of music from the 1920’s.

This is not the first time one of Paul Goldfinger’s photographs has appeared in a publication.  Last year our photo of Ocean Grove taken from the pier, looking back, was featured in Maine Ahead magazine for their story about Scott Rasmussen.  (Maine Ahead photo link ).

Paul’s photographs have been published in the The Daily Record, Internal Medicine News, The New England Journal of Medicine, Hospital Physician, Pfizer Labs Annual Calendar  (six times),  and New Jersey 24-7  book (cover photo.)

SOUNDTRACK.  Anita O’Day.  “My Ship.”

 

Editor’s Note:  Anita O’Day was a jazz singer who died in 2006. This song, “My Ship,” was written in 1941 by Ira Gershwin  (lyrics)  and Kurt Weill  (He wrote the “Three Penny Opera”) for a stage show, but jazz musicians like Miles Davis adopted it. I think the mood of this version matches the feel of the park at dusk.    —-Paul

DON AZPLAZU and the HAVANA CASINO ORCHESTRA:   Remember Cuba when Myer Lansky and his fellow travelers hung out there?   They use to have big time boxing matches in Havana along with casinos, glamour, money, music, the rhumba, booze, and good times.

Did any of you go “bc”  –before Castro?  What happened in Havana stayed in Havana, along with some of the customers.
