Do you remember the band, Brick?
“Ain’t Gonna Hurt Nobody”, “Push Push”, “We Don’t Wanna’ Sit Down (We Wanna’ Get Down)”, “Sweat (Till You Get Wet)”, and “Dazz”. Dazz was my skating jam!
Brick brought their fusion of disco and jazz to the Southern University Gala on the Bluff Saturday and let me tell you – original member Jimmy Brown did that! He danced, SANG, and played that trumpet, trombone, saxophone and flute all over the stage. At the age of 71 Mr Jimmy still has it.
My favorite selection they performed that night was a rendition of “What a Wonderful World” made famous by Louis Armstrong 48 years ago. Here is a short piece.
I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day,
the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.
Have a bright, blessed day in this wonderful world.
