A bit different..

I cannot say that I started DJing because I hated the stuff local DJs were playing. Dancing in SF 5 yrs ago was a bit like being on the forefront of developing swing music tastes. This is not to say we discovered every good song- but everyone travelled everywhere, and if a good song was discovered e...

Wait, a question I know the answer to.. Yes! I'll give you a perfect example. Paul and Sharon and I were doing a little CD shopping at Amoeba in Berkeley, CA, and I saw a Monty Alexander CD for something like $3. It was a bunch of standards, looked like it could have a couple of winners on it, and a...

I have a winner as far as headphones go, if you can still find them. Koss R/80's are I think the best deal for the money. They were $40 at Dell.com the last time I looked (which was a while ago), but they're a steal at that price. Scratch that, $32 from amazon.com. My favorite feature is that the he...

Posting here is my coming to terms with being a swing DJ. Yes, I am, I admit it. So, I have a few theme songs.. I've often started my set off with "School Days" by Dizzy Gillespie off the album of same name. Jesse Miner turned me on to this song first, but I'm always amazed how rarely I hear it- it'...

[Answered] John Brown's Body, Monty Alexander

You played a Monty Alexander song at ALX this year that had at 5 people up at the DJ booth by the end of it. I think I heard you say it was off the "Alexander The Great" LP- is that right? What was the song name? And how'd you get the LP/ who put it on CD for you? Really enjoyed your stuff by the wa...
