I read that bio, read it again, then scratched my head ... where did you get that Lawrence b/c it doesn't jive with what I've seen before. One of the most accessible of all jazz pianists, Gene Harris' soulful style (influenced by Oscar Peterson and containing the blues-iness of a Junior Mance) was i...

I've actually had some surprising moments where a request has actually worked against my expectations. One of the most memorable was DJing at the Legion in Vancouver one night and a request came in for Blu Cantrell's Swingin' . I had just started my set, but the dancer was leaving and, hey, I had it...

But as long as we provide free DJs the event directors will only pay a very few of us. They're only paying what the market will bear. For someone like me, I don't really care about getting paid that much. I only dabble in DJing and whenever I go to an event I want it to succeed. For example, at a l...

Two other points: Do names matter? Yes. People told me how much they like different DJs when I was planning the DJs for last year's ALHC. Yeah, but did it make the difference that they were going to the event? As I see it, there are four possibilites from that statement that you made: 1) They are g...

All of this makes me wonder how much impact does getting a nationally recognized DJ have on an exchange's attendance? Personally, I really don't pay that much attention to what DJs are going to be at an event. What matters more to me is that the event is in a town where I have good ties to the local...

Oh how I miss CDNow.com. Life was so simple back then. They had everything I ever wanted (well they listed everything I ever wanted). I could search for anything and find anything. They had clips of almost every song. Their artist bios were informative had links to more artists. I spent hours at th...

dude, you cannot bring barbara into that statement, she plays a completely different sound, and should/would never be brought into a discussion of neo-swing music. Never meant to imply that Barbara was neo-swing ... just trying to make the point that the right feel re: the production of the album c...
