”That jazz” is referring to a miracle in music that happened in the beginning of 1900s when people from a big variation of ethnical and cultural background inspired each other to play in a new fashion. Luckily all this coincided with the development of new inventions like the phonograph recordings, photography and film so that it became in part documented and still can be enjoyed today. In my early teens I happened to be exposed to ”that jazz” and it struck a string deep within me that has kept vibrating ever since.

It’s the Talk of the Town

Many have sung this: Bing Crosby, Red Mc Kenzie, and Annette Hanshaw, to mention a few, who made their interpretations when the song was new in 1933. There is also a very good instrumental one from the same year by Fletcher Henderson’s Orchestra, featuring Coleman Hawkings and Red Allen. Another favorite is a version made 20 years later with Dizzy Gillespie and Stan Getz.

I can't show my face, can't go any place,
People stop and stare, It's so hard to bear,
Ev'rybody knows you left me,
It's the Talk of the Town

Ev’ry time we meet, my heart skips a beat,
We don't stop to speak, tho' it's just a week,
Ev’rybody knows you left me,
It's the Talk of the Town

We sent out invitations to friends and relations,
Announcing our wedding day,
Friends and our relations gave congratulations,
How can you face them?
What can you say?

Let's make up sweetheart, we can't stay apart,
Don't let foolish pride keep you from my side,
How can love like ours be ended,
It's the Talk of the Town
