Speaking of "the jungled dischords of the clarinet," how abot B.G. in the Empire Room of the Waldorf-Astoria. I don't care if there is a couvert on top of the $1.75 for dinner. I'm there!
For the Samual Barber 'Adagio for Strings' article, I really wanted to be able to provide a link to a listenable copy of that piece. I got it saved to a file and ready to upload, but after a couple hours of effort I was unable to find a site where I could store it and link to FR. My best bet was fileden.com (another tip from CougarGA7) but I couldn't connect with my activating email to get started. If anyone knows how I can pull this off I would appreciate the help. Maybe I can still get it up in time for the Nov. 5 premier. Otherwise, I urge everyone unfamiliar with it to find a copy of 'Adagio for Strings,' by Samuel Barber and give it a listen. It is an amazing and important 20th century work. It has also been used as the score for several movies, most notably 'Platoon.' My version is by the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra, Leonard Slatkin, 1989.
They’re about to release a remake of the movie “The Day the Earth Stood Still.” That should be be against the law, IMO...
Folks, look closely at the second column, first paragraph, first sentence. Though worded awkwardly by modern parlance, the word discrimination is used to indicate a good thing. As in someone with discriminating tastes.
I thought that to be an odd but interesting tidbit.
I've actually seen an “improved” colorized Ansel Adams photo. THAT deserves the death penalty.
Dinner STARTS at $1.75 depending on entree. “3 beans on toast”? Or Leg of Lamb? You want something “nice” you should expect to pay a bit more.
And the public of 1938 would be surprised at what the FCC permits today.
They jazz the media several times every hour now.
And there were white label dirty records back then, but they were sold under the counter, never under the recording artist’s name, and never played on radio or dicussed in the street level culture.
I think that Ansel Adams did do a little bit of color photography and that he even shot a few portraits. But yes, applying color to one of his carefully composed, developed, and treated silver prints is contrary to all the work and intent.
There’s too much sax and violins on radio.
I got it saved to a file and ready to upload, but after a couple hours of effort I was unable to find a site where I could store it....
Play the piece in windows media player and save as a video file.
Youtube is your best bet for a place to up load it.
[groaning AND giggling]
But if you have to ask how much more, you can't afford it.
(Actually, I'm partial to the fugue)
OH THE HORROR!!!!
LOL! That is too funny.
Which was the basis for a pretty good movie, "Swing Heil!"
Pretty good film alright, except for the last reel.
I think the B Minor Mass might defy attempts to "swing" it. Maybe a hip-hop version though . . .
Let's pass a law keeping negros from playing 'our' music.
But the author of the article needn't worry, black jazz musicians were already sowing the seeds of the demise of swing in the after hours clubs, bebop was right around the corner.
I dont know. It might be hard to reverb it.
