vamp

Driving down from Mum and Dad's to John's on Christmas Eve, I caught the tail end of frontrow on BBC Radio 4.

The episode was John Kander on Cabaret, The Scottsboro Boys and Chicago.

This post is a note to myself to listen to the whole thing.

Kander sits at the keyboard, talks about and illustrates how they used to develop songs around vamps and from what I heard it is very much (Icons passim) how I imagined it worked.
