Pointillist Haze
I found it! Live recording from the Pittsburgh Jazz Festival, 1965, Duke Ellington "Second Portrait of the Lion," first track I heard affixed to the word "jazz": instrumental (so to speak) in fixing in my brain the idea of jazz as quick notes in a pointillist haze.

(Surely I'd heard jazz previously in movie scenes and on TV shows: lounge singers and their accompanists, as private eyes and wise guys pass through. But not part of my sense of a genre "jazz.")

[This is in regard to my post here (The Elephant And The Giraffe) (or in deeper context at Freaky Trigger) regarding my teen jazz tokenism, and the strange early appearance of the Duke.]

New group called Saturday perhaps trying to sound somewhat like a group that did a song called "Saturday Night."


The thought had dawned on me that Saturday's name might point to a source of inspiration. Their song, incidentally, is named after a Korean variant of rock-paper-scissors.

Meanwhile Momoland are also embracing silliness.

Did you know that the summer smash hit in Japan is a Eurobeat song?

Purple, from Korea, trying to sound like the Cover Girls (good arrangement, but the melody is only so-so, maybe about a 6.0).
