Episode Summary

Show C
This episode features Stan Kenton and his band, folk vocal group The New Christy Minstrels, folk singing duo Joe and Eddie, "cool jazz" trumpeter Shorty Rogers and his Giants and pop pianist Peter Nero. Nero performs "Something's Coming" and the Rogers group does "Not Really the Blues," both set at a Nike missile base, while the New Christy Minstrels live it up at a beach party with "Saint's Train" (a hybrid of "When the Saints Come Marching In" and "This Train"). Damone is featured with "Charmaine" in a studio recording session and Joe and Eddie perform "Did You Hear About Jerry?" in a nightclub setting. In director Barry Shear's far-out department, Kenton leads an orchestra of disembodied instruments for "Malaguena" and a Mobilux film fuses abstract objects with a jazz background.moreless

      • The recording session Damone was seen at was for his 1962 album "The Lively Ones" (Capitol T/ST-1748), pictured on the album cover were Damone and his first season "dates" Joan Staley and Shirley Yelm.

      • This series occasionally featured Mobilux short films set to jazz music. The Mobilux Lumia process was sort of like a limited animated film. A light was shone against a design or picture on a piece of flexible, reflective acetate and the resulting image on a mirror was photographed. The image on the acetate could be manipulated by hand and filmed in "real-time" resulting in a non-animated "animated" film. This was used previously for a January 19, 1957 NBC TV special "Eugene" with Ernie Kovacs that "Lively Ones" creator Barry Shear directed.
