"wow - I thought '20' was his first album. I was very into Harry Connick about 15 years ago and really enjoyed seeing his live band play the Seattle Opera House; I've been meaning to go through the CDs I have (about 7) to look for tracks for swing dj'ing." The whole album is good Charleston dance ma...

Definitely my favorite is the Armstrong and Ellington sessions. Both are in top swinging form, the sound quality is really good, and I prefer the more jazzy small combo sound. Armstrong and Peterson is similar, but the sound quality is not so good (not really bad, just a noticeable slight hiss). Of ...

Thanks! I am going to do some tests with Audacity, and see how they turn out. Otherwise, the Sound Forge Audio Studio sound like a pretty reasonable solution.

I played Blue Mance during the Saturday afternoon dance at SOFLEX last weekend to good effect. The floor was filled with dancers, as apposed to a hot jazz Charleston number I played (Dippermouth Blues), which did not do so well. That kinda surprised me. Now that I think of it, I saw very little char...

Thanks for the tip, I will check out Nero. Has anyone ever used Sony Media Screenblast Sound Forge 7? It is a smaller version of Sound Forge, and is about $70. Not sure if bit depth make a difference for just editing...it is not 24 bit. http://mediasoftware.sonypictures.com/Products/showproduct.asp?...

"One thing that interests me. I've noted a few folks have been excited about the "edited" versions of these songs. I understand how that could be useful in a dance environment, heck I've edited a few songs myself, however I'm a purist, and I cringe at the thought of not having the full original song...

I have been regularly playing those same songs from the new album, and they have definitely gone over well. I also didn't like her first album as much. I'll have to check out the Ron Sunshine CD too, thanks for the tip!

I got the CD yesterday, and I can say that it was worth the money. There are a few songs that I will definitely put on my A-list, and play regularly at my Blues-Swing dance in Orlando. Most notably I like the Clark Terry combo version of Everyday I Have the Blues. Although Joe Williams is one of my ...
