Listening To: “Puttin’ on the Ritz” – Terry Snyder

Break out your best fedora and call up your latest squeeze to hit the town (or the couch) with the provocative percussions of space-age bachelor pad bad-cat Terry Snyder and his band of “All Stars.”

Not too much info of Terry on the web beyond year of birth (1916) and year of death (1963 – gone too soon but haven’t tracked down cause of demise). This tune gets me every time because…

#1 – it’s fabulous

#2 – Thanks to Dutch musician Taco’s 1982 hit (and I guess originally Irving Berlin), I know the lyrics and can sing along, (“if you’re blue… and you don’t know… where to go to… why don’t you go… where fashion sits…” )

#3 – by the end of it I always somehow have a martini in my hand.

Join in on the beat after the jump!

And if you want to party with Terry and all his All Stars by the comfort of your own hi-fi, get yourself a copy of Ultra Lounge Volume Three: Space Capades
