Re: Favorite recording of........Summertime

The other version I've been playing is by Dr. Michael White on "Jazz from the Soul of New Orleans". Really pretty. I second that one. Just a gorgeous piece. A little long, but worth it. I also love the Joe Williams one off of the "Together/Have A Good Time" album with Harry "Sweets" Edison. I just ...

I'm guessing it's the Oscar Peterson version with the Singers Unlimited.

The name of the album is "In Tune"

Has anyone tried a new program called Tangerine? I haven't downloaded it yet, but apparently it goes thru your music collection (I suppose iTunes only) and marks BPMs for all your songs. The only down side that I've heard is sometimes it doubles or halves the BPM for certain songs, so it's not perfe...

Thanks, I went to FNAC on Rue de Antibes. It wasn't a big jazz collection, but some interesting looking albums. But at those prices, I didn't want to take too many chances with CD's I couldn't read or listen to. But I was able to get Monty Alexander at Montreux, which is near impossible to find in t...

I understand that, but the subject line wasn't as specific. I figured a more direct query might bring new and different responses.

French Language Swing

Looking to get some Jazz and Swing from French Artists while I'm out in France next month. I've heard some rare tracks (at least rare in the US dances) from one or two US DJs, but would love to get some input so I'd know what to look for while I'm out there. Keep in mind, I already own and know abou...

I'm also going to be in Cannes this month, although I'll be there after the Balboa on the Promenade, but I'd love to find a good jazz record store while I'm out there.

And perhaps some recommendations for some good French Swing!

They just had featured him in concert on BET Jazz. It sounded really good.

I downloaded that app, but either I don't understand it that well or I have the older version. When I click on it from the desktop, a floating window opens up. It already says 60 BPM and if I hit the + or - buttons, it raises or lowers the BPM, and if I hit the "Set" button it sets the BPM into my i...
