Wall Street Journal on George Avakian

Nice article about famed producer (and Greg's dad) George Avakian in the Wall Street Journal. Also picked up in this month's Riverwalk Jazz newsletter. Jazz Producer to the Greats George Avakian probably has done more to influence the way jazz has been heard over the past 70 years than anyone else a...

How is an LP more "real" than a CD? More "real" than MP3's I could maybe understand, but a record is no less physical than a compact disc.

You'll get that message if the audio file or its directory is moved or deleted. Either click yes and find it manually, or if it's happening a lot just clear the library and redefine the watched folder. If iTunes would just move to a dynamically refreshed watch folder(s) like Winamp has, you wouldn'...

I find an odd irony in the fact that you are using an internet discussion board as a vehicle to complain about the failings/disposibility of modern digital technology. You should write an editorial for the evening edition of your local newspaper.

Re: Your local Lindy Hop scene - Uses real Swing music or ot

Does the local Lindy Hop scene in your area use real Swing music from the 30s and 40s and maybe some Jazz from the 20s? Or does your local LH scene use non-Swing and non-Jazz to keep itself going? I'd like to know how much real Swing is being used nation-wide. ps - How much real Swing does your sce...

Swifty's DJ'ing sucks ... because he doesn't DJ in my local scene. :P Niotce set. What's the sound quality like on that Tiny Bradshaw track? I have some of his stuff and I find it sounds a little tinny compared to other artists' rhythm and blues recordings from the same era. It's on the Proper 2CD ...
