    Default Bebop thread

    Yeah, so it occurred to me, if this is to be an acceptable board, there should be a thread devoted to one of the established forms of formal, musical expression.

    So, why not bebop, to take one well-formed example.

    Holy shit -- just watching that BH video. That is some good stuff. "The minor third that's our family!" Jesus christ, he is preaching!

    Not really jazz, but BB King was always kind of one of the most jazzy of blues guys. Maybe not so much as the guitarists out of New Orleans, but that single-note thing still did it. Plus, about the most generous performer I ever saw, from an audience perspective. Plus, he had great (in some cases they were just good) keyboardists with him at all times.

    BB was awesome and an amazing showman.

    I love the blues though.

    As to Jazz, I love me some Satchmo and a lot of the best of Swing but when it comes to later Jazz it is lost on me. I don't like scat or whatever Mel Torme was known for. Coltrane generally bores me. Ella Fitzgerald was generally made of awesome to me though.
    Her scat was tolerable for some reason

    but her and Louis Armstrong together was magic.

    I really admire Buddy Rich

    and Gene Krupa

    Sing Sing Sing is one of the most epic songs of all time

    Louis Prima was incredible also. He did a great cover of Sing Sing Sing but I think this is his signature song:

    My Brother-In-Law hired his daughter's band for my Sister_In-Law's birthday party. Lena Prima was pretty awesome too:

    Hey now! Stick with the bebop (and BB King)! Just kidding -- those are good tunes and I'm looking forward to seeing if those versions match my recollections of what's in my "mental" library.
