Love it, Mourningstar! Soooooooooooooooo true. When the Congress was locked down yesterday, and the little buggers couldn't even order in pizza, and committee staffers were holding up signs saying "Send Food!", and they couldn't even go to the bathroom, was one of the few times when they have actually been simultaneously in session and harmless.
OMG i didn't knew that. I knew about the locked down. and the whole shooting "dilemma".. its funny..

Mark twain is such a briljant writer. I heard that Quote when we had to discuss oneliners on books. 8)

My favorite has often been attributed to Twain and many others. But actually it was first said by Judge Gideon Tucker in 1866:
"No man's life, liberty or property is safe while the Legislature is in session."
Words to live by.

It was truly heartwarming to see a dejected young staffer looking a lot like Michael J. Fox standing with a "Send Food" sign pressed against the glass door of a hearing room.

It just arrived yesterday. The book alone is almost worth the price. 5 cds of the sides cut by the two during Sinatra's 2 year stay with Dorsey's band. I am in heaven. I don't think Sinatra's voice was ever more beautiful than it was during the 40s. And the arrangements just knock my sox off. A warning to any desiring to obtain this set: there's a cassette edition of this out there too, so beware of cheap prices: they may signal the cassette version.

I have mahvishnu orch live from Central Park, New York, 1973(?, or 75?). That and love devotion surrender are the only 2 jazz cds I own, but even rarely listen to. Never could get into lazz, though i know there is some modern jazz i heard on the radio one day that sounded cool.. Oh and alittle John Coltrane is kinda nice, but do not own the cd.
I'm pretty much 99% classical, with a Faith Hill cd, a Shakira/dirty Laundry and a Burt Bacharach/Elvis Costello cd called Painted From Memory that is pretty cool.

A friend was playing it for me the other day ("NOT that Jimmy Darin!" she said emphatically, meaning I suppose Bobby Darin) and explaining to me why Darren was so much better than Sinatra. I was flabbergasted. I was reduced to muttering such inanities as "Oh, interesting sound, that!" and "You don't hear that too often." :shock: :? :roll: :cry: :lol:

Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Shore, Lena Horne, Doris Day, Tony Bennett, Vic Damone, Nat Cole, Judy Garland, Billy Ecstein, Mel Torme, Bobby Short, Rosie Clooney, Jo Stafford, Johnny Mercer, Fats Waller, Louis Armstrong, Bing Crosby (I don't generally like his voice but he does the most ravishing Moonlight Becomes You without all the ideosynchracies that he was famous for and that more than makes up for the silliness of his warble elsewhere), Steve Lawrence, Eydie Gorme, Keely Smith, Michael Feinstein, Harry Connick, Jr., Johnny Mathis, sometimes even Patty Page and Patsy Cline, The Ink Spots, Chirs Connor, Sarah Vaughn, Eartha Kitt, The Mills Brothers, The Ames Brothers, Jessica Mulaskey, Blossom Dearie, Nancy LaMott, Tierney Sutton, John Pizzarelli,


Tommy Dorsey, Artie Shaw, Woodie Herman, Benny Goodman, Art Tatum, Glenn Miller, Harry James, Fats Waller (as pianist), just about any boogie woogie artist or stride pianist.

listening to Verse by jazz pianist/singer/songwriter Patricia Barber. If only she would tour here . . .

also Droppin' Things by the late Betty Carter, one of the greatest jazz singers of all time and a wonderful live performer.

<div align="right">--finally got a chance to hear Patricia Barber's breakthru 1994 album, Cafe Blue on Premonition Records.
<img src="http://www.patriciabarber.com/photos/im ... jpg"width= "300" height="150">
--didnt know Barber had trained as a classical pianist with an interest in EM--there a track on this album, "Romanesque," that adapts Vatican ed. XVI--which probably means more to people here than it does to me. Anyway, it's a fine album, esp. "The Thrill is Gone", "Ode to Billy Joe", and "What a Shame". Her backup band (guitar, bass, percussion) is excellent and so is the sound quality. To me, Barber is an original.</Div>

-------------------------------------

--also listening for the first time to a really great jazz CD by my favorite jazz vocalist--Inside Betty Carter. Carter was amazing--her live show was intense, to say the least.

Two discs from Finland’s UMO Jazz Orchestra. Most of the music was written by Finnish composers including members of the band. This is big band jazz with an orchestral flavor using a conductor.

I love Miles' On the Corner. I should listen to it more often.

Steve, what a great video. Thanks for sharing it. I'm gonna have to check out more work by that group.

Right now I'm listening to The Best of Chet Baker Sings. Chet's voice is an acquired taste--he's far from technically perfect, but for what he lacks in technical talent, he more than makes up for in emotion and a unique sense of innocence in his voice. I love his interpretations of the American Songbook. His version of "My Funny Valentine" is simply sublime, in my opinion....

He is a great singer. Something about heroin that makes for great vocals - Billy Holiday, Chet Baker, Lou Reed, Janis Joplin, Lane Staley, etc.

Many people have heard Chet Baker, without knowing who is doing the singing, thanks to Turner Classic Movies. They have a wonderful short introduction to their films that they run quite frequently featuring Chet singing "Look for the Silver Lining" over animations of Edward Hopper paintings. Very cool!

I'm sure he didn't do the jingle. Chet Baker died in 1988. "Look for the Silver Lining" was recorded in the mid 1950's. The Proper label has a 4 disc box set of his early recordings with one CD devoted entirely to his vocal performances. There are lots of Chet Baker recordings available today.

What do you folks think of Mandy Patinkin's voice? It shocked the hell out of me when I first heard him singing. To look at him, you'd think "baritone." Then out comes this . . . Irish tenor . . . almost a countertenor at times . . . that reminds me of Dennis Day on the Jack Benny Show.

I like Ralph Towner very much, and I think that some of his works are at the borderline of classical music and jazz, as he plays classical guitar mixing traditional and contemporary styles. Bill Evans was also a great performer! :D

Frank Sinatra She Shot Me Down

Listening to Artie Shaw.

1. Oh! Lady Be Good~~2. Deep Purple~~3. What Is This Thing Called Love?~~4. Nightmare~~5. Indian Love Call~~6. Begin The Beguine~~7. Traffic Jam~~8. Stardust~~9. Summit Ridge Drive~~10. Back Bay Shuffle~~11. Comes Love~~12. Serenade To A Savage~~13. Frenesi~~14. Special Delivery Stomp~~15. Temptation~~16. Moonglow.

I didn't know that he passed away last year.
Jan 1, 2005 (AXcess News) New York - Artie Shaw, the jazz clarinetist and famed American bandleader, has died at the age of 94, after a lengthy illness.

Shaw, one of the major figures of the swing and big-band era, became a national star with "Begin the Beguine" in 1938. Another of his many recorded hits was "Stardust."

Shaw was ranked with such notables as Benny Goodman and Tommy Dorsey, among the greatest bandleaders of the time.

He was among the first white bandleaders to hire a black singer full time when Billie Holiday joined his group.

Shaw abruptly stopped performing in 1954, but reorganized a band in the early 1980s that featured another clarinetist leading the orchestra.

Among his eight wives were actresses Lana Turner and Ava Gardner. All eight marriages ended in divorce.
