RE: [RedHotJazz] Re: Can you identify these?
- Hi Patrice,
Thank you! I will make sure to post the cooler pre-swing stuff. This is an
amazingly fun part of a Jazz History course I'm currently taking. The part
that involves actually listening to hours and hours of music! I've also
been reading Ted Gioia's almost definitive History of Jazz and loving every
moment of it. I can't imagine how long it's taken me to get into this being
a bass player for an indian classical band. Will post more songs for the
I went to a jazz bar down in Hillcrest (San Diego) recently. It's called
the Red Fox tavern and it's built like the original Red Fox in England.
Some AMAZING music. They definitely played some Joplin, Earl Hines piano
and King Oliver cornet pieces that I recognized. This is just two guys one
on piano and one on cornet!!! Other than the couple of triple stoli on
rocks, they totally blew my mind!!! And their steaks are pretty good too!
Cheers and many thanks,
