#106 Four Cab Drivers and a Wedding – Boaz Power TV


I recently traveled from San Diego to Las Vegas to attend the wedding of a good friend. During my two days in Vegas, I encountered four cab drivers who each seemed to exemplify a different segment of society. Eventhough they were each driving a vehicle, they were heading down distinctively different roads in life. Using fictitious names, Ill identify them as Tom, Harry, John and Robert. Tom picked me up at the Mirage Hotel for the ride to the Saturday evening wedding at the Liberace mansion. Ive always been interested in peoples stories. Thus, I talk to everyone. A cab ride can either be filled with silence or it can be an interesting journey of discovery. I asked Tom how business was and he said, Its kind of slow. I asked why that was and he revealed an angry personality by snapping back, What do you think? Tom was angry. Life had dealt him an apparently bad hand and he was traveling down the road with heavy baggage from the store of resentment. If you have shopped too often at that store, perhaps you should start shopping elsewhere. The day after the wedding I had a ticket to the show Mamma Mia at the Mandalay Bay Hotel. The cab driver who took me there was Harry. In his early 30s, Harry seemed a little more upbeat about life than Tom. He was originally from Louisiana and had a slight southern tone to his speech.

The Kirby Stone Four (1957) – How Deep Is The Ocean (Featuring Larry Foster)


In 1957, The Kirby Stone Four recorded a dozen songs for the LA-based budget label Tops Records (which also distributed under the name Mayfair Records). These recordings, which featured some of LAs finest musicians, Paul Moer, Tommy Tedesco, Buddy Clark and Mel Lewis, consisted of a mix of standards and new tracks composed by Stone and fellow group members Michael Gardner and Eddie Hall. Two of the tracks, Alexanders Ragtime Band and How Deep Is The Ocean also showcased Larry Fosters amazing talent for vocal impressions. On How Deep Is The Ocean, for instance, he mimics well known celebrities from the era, including: Billy Eckstine, Mel Torme, Frankie Laine and Tony Martin in the first verse, with Perry Como, Liberace, Vaughn Monroe, Nat King Cole, and Enzio Pinza rounding out the second verse. By 1960 Tops Records was bankrupt, however, recordings from its catalogue continued being released well into the decade on labels such as Golden Tone, Acorn, Hurrah Records, and Rondo. NB THIS CLIP FEATURES AN EXTREMELY RARE, NEVER-BEFORE SEEN PHOTO OF MEL TORME WITH KIRBY STONE (BETWEEN THE 0:35 0:45 SECOND MARKS)
