Definitely not b/c of lyrics. God, putting lyrics to that would be awful.

My clarinet player, Russ Reinberg, has been doing a series of semi-weekly podcasts, which are basically like old-school airchecks. The episodes are not particularly well labeled, but some are really pretty good. Several members of the Campus Five can be heard playing on various episodes. http://west...

I'm not sure if you're agreeing or not. I think SSS is good enough to survive all of that. Seriously, I could watch this over and over: http://youtube.com/watch?v=3mJ4dpNal_k

I'll chime in with my own take on ITM. In the Mood is a well crafted arrangement, with an incredibly memorable theme. The whole getting softer and softer, and then getting loud thing, very effective. Well played, tight. However, it does have down sides. It was played by a band who could play jazz so...

The note or even chord you start on has nothing do to with it. Its the chords, and specifically the chord you end on that is the key.

Blue notes don't make a song minor. The chords do. Blues skies goes minor on the bridge as well.

The first four bars of Blue Skies ARE minor, and then it resolves to major in the next four bars. It starts in D minor and moves to F major - which are of course the same group of notes. I Found a New Baby does the exact same move.

That would definitely be the hi hat stand sound. The right hand is playing the hihat cymbals, and the left is sticking the stand itself. I was just guessing from memory when I said brushes.

This is a way-out-of-left-field suggestion, but I think it would be cool if a syllabus for swing DJs could include talking to swing musicians to hear their take on music and playing for dancers. You assume that jazz musicians have any more idea about playing for dancers than DJ's do. Most don't kno...
