Make One Note Swing

Undecided Music Major... [16 Apr 2007|01:06pm]

Hello All. I have recently got a partial scholarship due to my musical talents but I am torn into what Iam actually going to Major in. I play all the woodwinds proficiently as well as all the brass'.And in Strings Cello and bass. I love playing Classical/Dixieland/Jazz?any kind of music really on all of my instruments. And when Iam asked what instrument i am going to take to college I have absolutly NO idea! I dont have a fav. instrument because i like em all the same. I was fixed for awhile that i was going to major in Music Education and teach youngsters but I keep hearing from my Music Teachers that there is not alot of jobs for that. I was also thinking about sound engineering or musicology. I just need some advice since no one really can relate. Thanks.

So today I got the 3rd trombone part for "Fresno's Finest Jazz Band." Its not the first part but I think im pretty lucky. My Director is leading the band so he said he'd be fair and let the other schools in the district put their kids and then put whoever in our band that he needs. I only know one of my competition, Shadow Garza, I dont know if its a girlor a boy but IT can only hit a G...i can go up to a Db. Im hoping we'll audition and I can get the first part.

I'm looking for an mp3 of 'Mississippi Mud', the vesion recorded by the Frank Trumbauer Orchestra with Irene Taylor on vocals. Does anybody have this? Isn't it the greatest song?

hey, the name's Erin. I'm from Baton Rouge, LA (an hour from New Orleans)...I've been doing some jazz piano for a few years but really started getting more into it lately. Mmm, I'm really into guys like Bill Evans, Art Tatum, Thelonius Monk, Ray Charles, Miles Davis(duh), Charlie Parker, Jaco...and the list goes on. Cool, well...good to finally find a community like this one. :)

I'm so excited to find this community... and yet, I'm a moron b/c I don't know how to save the "membership button" in order to put it in my user info. I have never been able to save moving icons... can someone let me know how?

I'm not sure if these means I'm crazy or cool, but I named my first pets (two parakeets) Ella & Louis. I used to put Ella on at night and they would sway back and forth slowly, their eyes half-closed.

Hey, I opened up a community about six months ago to help people with improvisation and we've only just started to see life for the first time since the community opened. So, I'm looking for some new members to help keep things going.


I'll delete this if you want me tooCollapse )

I have Baby It's Cold Outside... got it off of Kazaa. It was labled "Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong"
I get a cd with the same song, the lady sounds exactly the same so I'm assuming the CD is correct. But who the hell is Velma Middleton. I looked her up I can only find a some pictures of her... no info about her.
Who is this lady?

Hey you guys, I recently discovered this awesome afro-latin sounding vibe artist named Cal Tjader when my grandfather let me borrow this CD (the one above). I think it's got a really cool, diverse jazz orchestra sound, and I was wondering if you guys had heard any of it, or can recommend some more of his stuff?

So pretty recently (a couple of months ago) I got a copy of Wynton and Ellis Marsalis' "Joe Cool's Blues" which presents a new interpretation of Guaraldi's Peanuts Suite. I really love the CD, especially the vocal part on "Little Birdie". I was wondering if anyone else had some cool Peanuts CDs they could recommend, or if anyone is familiar with Guaraldi's work, and could recommend some of his other stuff?
