    27 jul 2008, 00:40 av Uhwelluh

    Two hours of recordings from the Los Angeles scene--mostly from the '40s. Lots of cuts from the "Central Avenue Sounds" set along with "Savoy on Central" along with a cut from the first JATP concert, some from "Sunset Swing" & big bands like Kenton & Earle Spencer. Didn't get to tell some of the stories since there were technical work being done in the studio at the time & also wasn't able to record it.

  • My second Jazz CD...

    13 sep 2007, 21:44 av insanecheese

    Although I always had a thing for jazz music, especially the kind of jazz that evolved during the 1940s (Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie...), the only Jazz-CD I own is a "piano-only-CD" by Herbie Hancock. Actually, it's called The Piano.

    So most of the jazzy stuff I listen to, I get from the Last.fm-player. Just fill something in like Charlie Christian, press "play" and relax. Watch the clouds outside slowly passing by as the sky gets darker and darker...

    Well, I've been playing stuff like Satriani and Vai recently, and listening to my "core-music" of course, but I also have been into alot of Bebop-stuff lately. There are some really cool Blues-guitar guys like T-Bone Walker, which I really like to listen to as well.
    So, here it is: I bought my second Jazz-CD today. It's a nice record called Green Street by Grant Green, which I am just listening to right now and I'm already loving it.

    I don't know much about Jazz, but I really like the style of this guy. …
  • How eclectic is my musical style?

    14 maj 2007, 00:43 av KapitalD1

    Take your top 20 artists. For each of these artists, collect the top 5 similar artists. The resulting number of unique artists is your eclectic score. If the score is small (extreme = 5) your musical preferences are very limited, and if it is large (larger than 80, extreme = 100), then you have an eclectic musical preference. You can compute your own score at http://anthony.liekens.net/pub/scripts/last.fm/eclectic.php

    My eclectic score is currently

    88/100

  • Update, lesser known yet streamable artists

    23 maj 2006, 05:51 av scarebear

    The global tag , which (toot! toot!) I created, has been growing steadily in popularity. The rules, which I think most people are sticking to, is that an artist must have less than 5,000 fans to be included in the tag. And once they get to 10,000 fans, they should be removed from the tag. To see all 106 artists, click here.

    I actually don't really care if the artist is all that unknown, what matters is that, at least for most of them, it is a crime that don't have more fans.
