  1. I find that when the ringing gets louder, it's related to higher blood pressure. As I relax, the ringing decreases. See if you find whether that relationship works for you too.

  3. Exactly as you say. Check this out:
  4. What I found most interesting on the Vogue box was Django on electric guitar. He sounded nasty! Also interesting, but not in a great way, was to hear how much the band mimicked the style of Benny Goodman with Charlie Christian.
  5. I don't have a lot of Django, but I do have the 5-CD set on JSP and the first Jazz On Vogue box. None of this is duplicated on those.
  6. Close to a box set... Meat Light, $8.71 + shipping from an Amazon reseller:
  7. Just coincidentally, I recently relistened to a CD that a board friend (anyone remember PD?) made for me many years ago, of Roy Williams and Five A Slide. Nothing earth-shattering, but very well played and enjoyable - also interesting to hear a band with 5 trombones! I think the music was in this style, which makes me want to hear more. Of course, I remember seeing those Acker Bilk albums on the inner sleeves of Atlantic albums. They all looked kind of corny, and I never knew anyone who played them, but I was much younger then.
  8. Just noticed this box set, and was curious if anyone has an opinion, not just about the particular selections in this set but about the genre itself. I suppose it could veer into corn, but perhaps a lot of it is good, vibrant stuff? And, of course, at a great price. Thoughts?

    Jim, thanks for the recommendation. Just listened to it, and it smokes!
  10. Interesting article on Porter from Marc Myers's JazzWax website (via the Mosaic Gazette), in which he asked Porter to talk about his five favorite albums: http://www.jazzwax.com/2016/12/bob-porter-on-soul-jazz.html
  11. Bob Dylan corner

    Folk music legend Bruce Langhorne has passed away, according to acolyte Dylan Golden Aycock. Langhorne was a session guitarist and percussionist and a friend to Bob Dylan. He inspired the song ‘Mr. Tambourine Man’, contributed the spidering guitar solo on ‘Subterranean Homesick Blues’ and played on Dylan’s tracks ‘Maggie’s Farm’, ‘Love Minus Zero/No Limit,’ and ‘She Belongs To Me’ and on The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan.
