MUSIC FOR JULY 2022
‘LAST CALL WALTZ’
Here’s a plain country song for a sultry summer night. It’s also a nod to an old country-music tradition, as exemplified by “Tennessee Waltz” and “New Partner Waltz”: the waltz of romantic betrayal. This time around, though, the situation is experienced not by the betrayed, but by the betrayers, who are suddenly facing both closing time and a big decision.
This version of “Last Call Waltz” is performed by Doug Hubley and Gretchen Schaefer, aka Day for Night, at Quill, Westbrook, Maine, in June 2018.
