I had a really bad experience and swore off on them. They shipped me the wrong CD- I double checked my order, ISBN number, etc, and sent them an email letting them know. I head..... nothing. I emailed again after a few days. Still nothing. And again. And nothing. Finally had to get my refund from ha...

On the other hand . . . when I had about a thousand CD's stolen from a storage locker about 4 years ago (I had stored all of my music when I moved to Italy to work for several months), for all of that money I spent on those albums . . technically I was SOL. Legally, the only recourse I had, aside f...

IIRC, it was this series of recordings that prompted Eddie Condon to say something (reports vary) along the lines of:

Why do we need a Frenchman coming over here to tell us how to play jazz? Do I go over there and tell them how to jump on a grape?

Carlos Libedinsky is the man.
Hugo Diaz is pretty good.
Lalo Schifrin varies, look for the "Tango" movie soundtrack.

Equalizers while laptop DJing?

Having read 30 pages of the "Laptop DJing" thread, I didn't want to add to it with a tangential question... Do y'all deal with equalizer issues? I've messed with PJDJ Red and iTunes (although not lately), but neither seems to have an equalizer option. In my experience, tweaking some of the bands on ...

Yeah, I got word that the song is Bird and Diz on "Dizzy Atmosphere". I think the CD I have: "The World of CP on Ember" or http://tinyurl.com/yxpq84 has the titles for DA and Conf. switched. I'm not sure which version the song in question is, but if/when I get it figured out, I'll post. Regardless, ...

the song is a Parker tune, "Confirmation". It sounds like Bird and Diz to me, but I haven't been able to pin the version down.

Rosetta Tharpe - Document or Proper?

So, I'm wanting to pick up the Rosetta Tharpe works. Allmusic indicates sets by Document (79 songs on 3 CDs) and by Proper (81 songs on 4 CDs) While I normally favor completeness, I'm willing to sacrifice 3% of the music for significantly better sound quality - is anyone familiar enough with these t...

On a more contructive note- If you'd like to hear more of a prticular kind of music, ask for it. Make mix CDs for your friends and local DJs that have a lot of the kinds of songs you really enjoy. When DJing, keep an ear out for "transitional" songs that merge or blend areas between genres; exposing...
