Happy 75th to Raymond Scott’s POWERHOUSE!

From the Raymond Scott blog, “Exactly 75 years ago today [yesterday, actually] Raymond Scott recorded his iconic hit tune, ‘Powerhouse.’ On the same date, following 8 months of rehearsals with his Quintette at CBS, he also recorded ‘Twilight In Turkey,’ ‘Minuet In Jazz,’ and ‘The Toy Trumpet’ — not bad for a day’s work. He didn’t realize it at the time, but these compositions would jump-start his stellar career, and accidentally inspire cartoon antics for future generations. To celebrate the milestone, check-out this collection of 75 YouTube clips of Scott’s classic ‘Powerhouse,’ here and see details about our year-long 75th anniversary events schedule here.
