This is a continuation of last weeks Music Monday. In the Song New Frontier Donald Fagen mentions Jazz pianist Dave Brubeck. Take Five was written by his long-time musical partner, alto saxophonist Paul Desmond. The Dave Brubeck Quartet was formed in 1951 following a near-fatal swimming accident which incapacitated Brubeck for several months.

For the first song I've chosen Lonely Teardrops sung by Jackie Wilson. Looking it up on Wikipedia shows some cool trivia I had never heard before. This song brought in the bucks used to form Motown Records! Here is a quote.
"Written by Berry Gordy, Gwendolyn Gordy (Berry's sister) and Roquel Billy Davis, going under the pseudonym Tyran Carlo, the single, alongside Wilson's debuting five consecutive singles between 1957–58, turned Wilson into an R&B superstar and influenced the later careers of Davis, who joined the staff of Chess Records while Gordy used the money from the song's success to form Motown Records within a year."
How cool is that? Well I hope you enjoy the music and maybe this will become a weekly post.
