FS: Big band and jazz autographs

Hi all, There isn't a "buy/sell" folder on the swingdjs forum. So, I'm putting it here, since I thought it would likely be of interest to some of you. I'm trying to raise some money for a new guitar amp, and thus I'm selling my big band and jazz autograph collection. Some are framed or come with oth...

Kazoos are not all bad. Let's not forget the Mound City Blue Blowers. Comb & tissue, too.

Like Jerry said, when DJing a club, it's the venue's responsibility to pay ascap and bmi, not the DJs.

Um... what DJ doesn't play "canned" music? Me. See, I've got this new situation where I have a full band on stage behind the DJ booth, and they know every jazz tune from all eras. I cue up songs, and I've got a button that gives the band leader an electric shock. That prompts him to start the tune....

I used to have a lot more variety in my sets than now. But, that's pretty much due to a) my own changing tastes and b) I now pretty much only DJ at Seattle's home for hotter music, One O'Clock Jump.

Interestingly (or maybe not...), my first exposure to this lyric is in the uptempo country blues tune "T for Texas" by Jimmie Rodgers, which, in addition to some might fine yodels, includes the following lyrics: Rather drink muddy water Sleep in a hollow log Rather drink muddy water And sleep in a h...

you only need to register if you want access to their " Premium Content (music samples, Advanced Search, Editorial Features, Expanded Artist and Album Info) ". Apparantly if you want to browse genre, as well, as I was looking to see if they had info on skiffle bands and was told I had to register.

Just play good swinging music and let it happen. Peeps have differing opinions on what give a bal feel. For kicks, here's the song list I used for the All Balboa Weekend invitational J&J: 1. Mora's Modern Rhythmists "Rigamarole" (all skate) 2. Luis Russell "Saratoga Drag" 3. Bunny Berigan "Chicken a...

My current fave song with a tempo/mood change, mid-stream is one that I used for the final all skate at the All Bal Weekend Invitational J&J. Historically, the last song for this event is "crazy," so I felt I could get away with it. The song is: Mildred Bailey Orchestra, "Shoutin' in the Amen Corner."
