Ditto on Sackville Allstars, Some Blues & Best of Friends - Just a Lucky So and So is really good too. I have the 41-43 stuff on this album: http://image.allmusic.com/00/amg/cov200/drc000/c075/c07576q790u.jpg and it sounds really good. I think imma go buy some more of the sackville releases - the st...

I think they get a certain amount of flow from being the same band who played the last song, so to speak.. (kinda like, if everything you played was old testament basie, how bad can the transition ever get?)

on my "I-wish-I-never-bought-it" Panama Francis live stuff, he gives a little speech before they play In the Mood, in their own defense, I think, about how it was written by a sax player in Edgar Hayes band and arranged by Eddie Durham.. I should dig it up and find the exact quote..

ok, next time you are in Seattle I'll play "The Entertainer" or "Maple Leaf Rag" and I expect to see you leading the jank possum out on the floor ;-)

intros are easy enough to skip.. but with most swing era stuff, it's more that the first minute and a half to two minutes often build up to the big exciting part at the end.. to solve that, you'd have to start halfway through the song, which would be way too awkward for the dancers.. my guess is tha...

here's my gripe about competition music - for the last contest I dj'd, which was at a west coast event, and they had me fade all of the songs after 1:30-2:00..

I heard one competitor whining about his song, and I thought he oughta blame himself for not having the range to work with it rather than blaming the song (and dj by extension).. I think they should make everyone dance to the same song, and it should be off of Steven Mitchell's CD, and it should be ...
