OT: What music is everyone listening to? V2.0

Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Big band isn't quite my thing, but I dig. I listen primarily to smaller combos and more modern jazz. You big on anything anything in particular? Also, here's a big band ft. Monk recording that I DO like...


I'm currently digging this track from a (current) pianist. It's very cerebral and pervasive in my mind. Kinda more like a classical rondo in a sense with a repeating motif/melody and continuous flow in between.

After music night last night, we went on a bit of a Beatles tirade. My guitar player mentioned that his favorite song was Her Majesty... What a choice!


In other news, we played Well You Needn't for the first time together and killed it!!! He was a little daunted by the chords at first, but when you realize that every interval in the song is a half-step increment, its becomes easy when you realize it's all about rhthym and chromaticism - almost doesn't matter what you play as long as you modulate it to the beat.

Neat stuff @TimothyH, very old school. Sounds a lot like some Nat King Cole.

More JAZZ

This seven year old (a couple years ago) won "Norway's got Talent"

She's been singing since she was 1.5 years old.

Her favorite artists are Frank Sinatra and Billie Holiday.

Skip to 1:36




Here is Bang Bang. The axe is wicked in this one.

She has a classic voice.

See below for some Joey Alexander, another child jazz prodigy, playing in a more TMonk preferred style :wink:

This is for sure a re-post on my behalf (at some point)...

Cal Tjader 1956. The intricacy of the rhythm section was "Miles ahead" at the time. Nowadays one would say that this **** is spitting "hot fire".
