Gene Krupa - Rhythm Jam

I have it on the album "That Drummer's Band."

It's the same song that the Silver Shadows used in this ULHS routine.

beatunes - utility for organizing iTunes library, auto-bpm

I'm playing with the shareware version of beatunes , finding it to be really helpful. I've run about 400 auto-bpm detections (with the algorithm set on highest accuracy vs. speed) and many of them are spot on. With the others, the main cause of error seems to be that the song is out of the preset te...

Singer from Louis Armstrong - Legendary Berlin Concert pt 2

Can anyone identify the singer on Can't Help Loving That Man and Lover Come Back to Me? (The album is also on EMusic.) I have these tracks on a compilation album that does not include any personnel information.

Chicago has seen an upswing in the past few months. Hard to separate what is due to changes in the economic climate, and what is the usual post-new-years-resolution bump. I wouldn't be surprised if it keeps up over the next several months though, and at that point I'd have to think that it was somet...

Creative Xmod

Has anyone been using the Creative Xmod? What has been your experience? I'm in the market for a new laptop, probably going the netbook route, and I want to decide on a sound card before I make a final decision on the rest of the hardware. Haven't figured out yet whether I can get a netbook with a sl...

Nat King Cole & Frank Sinatra - I've Found a Brand New Baby - The Magic of Nat King Cole ( available on Emusic. ) It's a live recording with Frankie on the vocal.

I select and preview tunes by browsing from playlists (iTunes playlists are visible from within Disco XT, including smart playlists). When I find a tune I want to play, I move it to the ...

AppleScripts for Disco XT/iTunes

Just to prove to my wife that I really am a nerd...I've been puttering with AppleScripts lately. Thought I'd share some of the results. Here is a script for transfering a playlist from Disco XT into iTunes. I like to keep a record of all the sets I play, so I use this to save set lists to my iTunes ...
