A teaching friend of mine recognized me singing the song :mrgreen:

Thanks a lot for your help, though!
I knew I recognised it from somewhere ...It's around 150 bpm

Re: Song with a lot of hard breaks/pauses

Corni wrote:Although the Band is a "Hot Jazz orchestra", I was comfortably able to dance in triple-step feeling, leading me to guess the approximative bracket of 130-160bpm of the song.
So mid-tempo then, with a lot of breaks.

Re: Song with a lot of hard breaks/pauses

Hi, I managed to do a transcription of the A part (without proper rhythm) here: http://www.scorio.com/scorio-portlet/scores/corni/a+part/cdc2540a4e747c307abe1b1c59943c9df0b39eedcd6ee4d98691098b2a39464e If this does not help you, I could try to get the rhythm right, but maybe the melody helps. The l...

Re: *OPEN* Please help me identify the song.

Love the dancing on this clip ... obviously the music is a modern version of "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" :wink: I think they have quite a few live bands at "Rock That Swing" which is a big annual dance event in Germany which crosses over between Rock and Roll and Swing (hence the name). On the clip, i...

Re: songs with very clear AAAB phrases

I am looking for songs that have very clear AAAB phrases (like Savoy Blip, for example). This is for a group of Lindyhop beginners who would like to listen to songs that make it easy to get a first feeling for the patterns that you can learn to hear in the music. Do you have advice? Maybe songs tha...

Re: Lindyhopper's Delight

I've been thinking about this a little … it struck me that handclaps (which usually add a lot to the energy and drive of a recording) are musically very imprecise. If you sampled a section with handclaps and slowed it down (as you did above) I'm sure you would notice that the sounds aren't made at t...

Re: Lindyhopper's Delight

While browsing youtube, I realised Swingtime in the Rockies by Benny Goodman has a similar pattern around the main driving high energy riff "da da-de-dade da dade da da DA DA". To my ear, the instruments playing it aren't quite in time with each other, which somehow adds to the amazing drive and swi...

Re: What's the name of that song?

Looking at the Balboa Classic web page, I think the live band playing is "The Grand Slam Sextet" which is one of Johnathan Stout's groups.

I guess you could try contacting Johnathan Stout to ask him if you don't get an answer here …

Re: What's the name of that song?

Oops - that's not the one you asked about. "I never knew" starts at 01.24, but you want to know the one starting at 05.00 with the woman in the light red dress. I was confused because you mentioned the second one. Again I think it's quite a well known tune. As the live band here is in the style of t...

Got it … it's "I never knew" written by Ted FioRito and Gus Kahn. Lots of recordings available by different bands and soloists.

I can't place it now, but ... it's a well known tune. Someone will know it.

Re: Lindyhopper's Delight

But you're probably talking about just the "bu bu bu bu bu bubu- bu" pattern itself, and I think you're saying you hear one instrument slightly out of time. Without analysing it too deeply, my thinking is that musicians would often instinctively know whether to be slightly ahead or slightly behind t...

Re: Lindyhopper's Delight

Thanks! That is a big help. It's not hugely important - I just noticed something about the track which I'd not spotted before, and was wondering who was playing it, and whether it was deliberate.... Background - for a few years now, I've been giving talks about swing music at various events - and I...
