Wingy Manone has always swung my socks on trumpet... even with only 1 arm. Swinging at the Hickory House has got a lot of great musicality to it on all instruments -- and it may show Wingy to be more of a minimalist with a great band more than a virtuoso but even so, I love his crisp style of playin...

Cancelling

When my credit card expired I walked away from Emusic because I couldn't figure out how to cancel. The didn't refresh my downloads since I wasn't paying for their service but they contacted me about 8 or 9 months later asking me to pay the accumulated balance even though I hadn't used the site. I wr...

The tempo of the 4Beat6 version from their album is closer that that live clip but on closer listen you're correct, its not that version.

Indeed. I checked all the chronological albums I downloaded last week and emusic now says they are all unavailable for download. Emusic said, "The label that owns the rights to the music you are looking for has decided not to make this music available in your region. Your region is determined by us ...

The opening 2 plus minutes of Mars! The Bringer of War from Gustav Holst's symphonic masterpiece The Planets Suite. It was faded into an Andrews Sisters number.

The laptop owner explained he used it to build energy and a sense of excitement on the previously empty dance floor.

Windows 7 problem with mp3's

I upgraded to Windows 7 and found inconsistancies playing mp3's. Most play fine in JRiver Media Center, Windows Media Player, Itunes & Quicktime. However, some files randomly play silence in JRiver and Windows Media players (but still play perfectly in Itunes and Quicktime). So far, most problem fil...

What Dave said. Its all completely dependent on the audience. We're a navy town so my local scene went from being a trad jazz 200 bpm Charleston crowd to a Groove scene that only danced in the 120-150 bpm range and then to a 140-225 bpm scene depending on who was rotated into or out of town for a to...

In my small home scene DJ's are officially not paid for anything other than possibly out of town DJ's for the main exchange. However, if they're personal friends with the organizer, he'll sometimes give them a cut of that night's take when nobody is looking. It's a crappy policy because DJ's talk an...

Audacity "Voice Logo"

I just downloaded the AVS Audio editor off the Audacity site (audacity 1.2.6 installer) and am getting a message saying that I need to pay $59 to activate the software or it will add a "Voice Logo" to my edited files.

Am I looking at the right program? I'd heard this was free-ware

Frankie's 95th "Great Day in Harlem" Photo of DJ's

Since many Swing DJ's will be gathered in NYC for the celebration of Frankie Manning, who wants to recreate the famed Great Day in Harlem photograph? We pick a time, drag as many Swing DJ's as we can up to 126th St. between 5th and Madison Avenue and snap a few photos to preserve the moment for post...

I contacted Ondrej Helvelka about 8 months ago via email to inquire about getting his CD's. At the time he said he was not allowed to export his CD's outside the Republic. I was able to get copies from someone who knew him and they are a very interesting mix of ballads, folk tunes, good swing, and b...
