Kid Ory's Complete Verve might do the trick. Lots of long songs on there.

Watch out for blues structured songs and extra dogfights/interludes though. You'll have to count out the bars to make sure that the 32 bars match up with the phrase changes all the way through the song.

[Answered] Mean to Me, New Orleans Jazz Vipers

Anyone know of some dixieland versions of "Mean to Me"? Falty kept playing one last year that sounded like a modern recording w/a female vocalist. Forgot the artist though...

This is a great topic. I guess I tend to lead up to the end differently depending on the mood of the night. Sometimes it's high-energy, sometimes it's not. It's good to let things develop organically. For a very last song, I like to play something funny or out of the ordinary. Like a Tom Waits song ...

[Answered] T'aint What You Do, Billy Kyle

I feel like I should have this version for something other than the lunceford or ella versions for a shim sham. Anyone know this one?

i don't know if it's still possible (some sites are funny like that), but i used to just do a google search restricted to the emusic domain for a specific version of a song. best way to go about it, imo.

i think i should smack my forehead.

thanks.

unfortunately, that's on kid ory's complete verve sessions which runs at a cool $225 on the low end, or for a few bucks a ligamusic.com which seems a bit suspect to me.

more music in the vein of...?

Looking for more music in the vein of:

Firecracker Jazz Band
Preservation Hall Early Years stuff
Willie Smith

and anything with that pre-1930 N.O. feel to it...
I'm kind of at a loss as to where to go after Kid Ory, Jelly Roll Morton, King Oliver, etc.

Thanks everyone!

Re: Majestic Lunceford trivia-

Majestic Lunceford trivia- I saw part of some cable tv movie recently which was set in 1947. There was a scene in a record store (so the movie is already cool just on that basis) and as the people move around in the store, they pick up a Jimmie Lunceford 78 rpm...on the Majestic label.....which is ...
