If VMP’s swaps aren’t on point this month they’re getting canceled after a year and a half of membership. Was going to swap for Big Bill Broonzy but it’s going for $12 on cogs for a NM edition, way cheaper than $27 for a mint version. I’ve been spending on this monthly membership to get albums I may like meanwhile the albums and classics I really really want aren’t on my shelves b/c VMP gets my money every month!
Should be hearing back tomorrow on a job I interviewed for on Tuesday, I've got a great feeling about it! Could really use this job, rent and record money has been tight the past couple months . I'm feeling its time for a breath of fresh air. New gig would be at a really cool, swanky cafe in LA, pays more, I get tips, AND I get to control the music my entire shift . Send me your good energy peeps!
This may seem super random to many but some of y’all Jazz heads might have my answer. On Duke Ellington’s Mood Indigo (Masterpieces version) and Black and Tan Fantasy (Newport version) there’s a horn that is manipulated to the point where it sounds like a man singing, shit you not in some cases it sounds like Louis Armstrong. Does anyone know how they extract such a sound from a horn? It’s mindbending on good speaks!
Starting an interview format music podcast! I want to interview artists about the defining moments that led to them devoting their lives to music. My goal is to talk to more musicians about their mental health and philosophies (the heros journey, etc etc.). Need help coming up with a name y'all. Current ideas include (For The Record *which seems cliche*, Dust In The Grooves, Side A) thats all I got. Ideas?
