For Jazz Aficionados (Jazz Blog)

Great blog that I've been haunting for a couple of weeks; some wonderful obscure stuff:

[myjazzworld.blogspot.com]

Found it while searching for a good big band arrangement for "Home to Emily" (aka Theme from The Bob Newhart Show), found it at the blog and have been a regular visitor since. Lots of out-of-print gold. Not all great, but some really unexpected fun stuff too.

He's a Mac man, so be cool. And FWIW, everything is @ 320.



(BTW, it's spelled < y'all >.)

Does his 'disclaimer' (if you own this music and mind that it's shared for free, let me know...) make it legal? I make my living in the industry - jazz no less, and this makes me sad.

Okay, I'm a jazz fan, but the meaning of this escapes me:

...at 320 what?

What does the 320 refer to?

mp3 sampling rate? If its tempo it'd be beyond bebop on crank.....

Sorry; 320 is the kbps.

As for legalities, I've bought tons of jazz in my lifetime (started back in the mid 70s, at around age 8, if you can believe it). Lost just about every LP I had to Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. I *always* buy the CD or download (Amazon, iTunes) version if it's available but most everything I've seen on his site is long since out-of-print and will likely never see publication again.

Is that an excuse? Not really. But without those downloads I never would have heard of most of those people/bands, let alone heard their albums, save for a rare second-hand store or garage sale find.

You're right, no excuse. But I'm glad you're finding new (to you) music. In that spirit, check out these two places, if you haven't already:

[www.checkoutjazz.org]

[www.npr.org]

And yes, I'm affiliated with both, partly why I suggest them.

Thanks for the links -- I'll most definitely be delving into both of those sites.

I really miss the days of discovering music back in New Orleans. Sure, there was a lot more than jazz, but jazz was the lifeblood that flowed through the City for me. Found all manner of recordings at places like Record Ron's, Metronome, even Sound Warehouse. One place -- can't remember the name now -- used to carry lots of imports; jazz from Paris and points beyond. (Being a port city, they'd get a lot.) Spent a lot of time (and a lot of money) collecting jazz. (I played trumpet, too, but that's another story.)

Especially if you like 70's Bob James kinda jazz, although the Charles Kynard is a tough 60's piece!
