They can if they bring their own cd... :roll:

Although, I subscribe to the same idea. I refuse to spend my money on stuff that I don't like. I don't have very much money, so why throw it away on something that I won't play anyway.

Yes, but the Violent Femmes do a cover of it. It starts out pretty quick and gets faster as the song goes on. Definately a novelty song that you don't wanna play more than once in a blue moon- if at all.

Try Violent Femmes "Ugly" or "Eep Opp Ork Ah Ah Means I Love You". They're both fairly uptempo, especially the latter, and can be fun to play once in a very great while.

Yes, Julius, My Funny Valentine is in a minor key. A good way to hear the difference between major and minor easily is to sit down with someone who plays piano. Have them play happy birthdy in major (the key it's written), then play it in minor. You'll hear the difference and it's much easier to exp...

That Anthology is amazing. It's worth the money, and since it's a double CD set you're not too much over your "no more than $5 a cd" rule. Seriously, every track on this is good. You can't go wrong with it.

Alot of people associate major with happy and minor with sad. They have been conditioned to think that. It has nothing to do with tension, as minor heys have the same set of intervals as major music, they're just in different places in the scale. I think, to go along with what Julius said: keep the ...

You're going to find that alot of "Foxtrot music" can also be considered "Lindy Hop music" or "Balboa music", same thing with "Quick Step music" (it's just faster). People can and will lindy hop to a song that other people will foxtrot to, it's all a matter of...

What does it really matter if you can identify who played with what band, in which year, with what singer, in which venues, etc ad nauseum...? If you play good music, it's good music. Period. Knowing who's playing third trumpet on this song, recorded in this place, on this date is just extra. Geez, ...

Man, that soundtrack is killer. I love how they incorperated classical music with modern techno/pop in some of the tracks, very cool. I'm looking forward to buying the cd.

A friend of mine got married about 6 months ago, he and his wife used My Baby Just Cares for Me. Unfortunately, the DJ used the Indigo Swing version- Nina's is so much better. So much better.

I rented that video once, A Great Day in Harlem. It was pretty sweet, there were lots of little anecdotes told about some jazz greats. Gives you a bit of insight into the perosonality of many Harlem musicians.

John Lee Hooker: Detroit 1948-1949

Thought I might manage to find some nice classic blues...all I got was 20 tracks of teh same song (with different words and titles). Sound quality's pretty crappy too. Wish I would have saved the money and put it towards something better.
