So what does this have to do with gypsy jazz? I dunno


well, I suppose it could mean that a group that works hard to get its chops together playing Django tunes can always grow, just as other bands who started off in a "stereotyped" genre have.

the difference being IMO that once you've attained the rudiments to play this style, you'll have an easier time learning and absorbing other kinds of music than you would starting from a 3 powerchord background and trying to play Django!

So true.... My interest in music was sparked by punk, but unfortunately, I took away from it an unhealthy attitude about the value of things like disciplined practice and learning music theory. I want to kick myself when I think how much further on my musical journey I'd be if I had put in the time with that stuff when I first started playing.

yeah I read something somewhere about Bireli and DeFrancesco - I think it was recorded fairly recently (like in late Feb), so it may be a while before it's out.

Sounds a bit like a line from an old David Ackles song: "They suffer least who suffer what they choose." That sounds a little profound to have come from a '70's SoCal singer/songwriter, so he may have snagged it from elsewhere.

Anyone seen The Imposters? I love that movie. "Fuck the creampuff! This man is a slave and an idiot!"

The Mandolin is the bottom four strings of the guitar, backwards...so a person with dyslexia has no problem learning to play the Mandolin.

Mister Zoot Horn Rollo, hit that long lunar note,
and let it float.

"We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of the dream. Wandering by lone sea breakers, and sitting by desolate streams. World losers and world forsakers, for whom the pale moon gleams. Yet we are movers and the shakers of the world forever it seems."
Engrave this quote in Our Store! -Arthur O'Shaunessey

"Music is the divine way to tell beautiful, poetic things to the heart."
-Pablo Casals

Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.

That was Eddie Condon. Dizzy certainly did flat his fifths.

After doing an internet search I would agree that Eddie Condon seems to be the originator, but the link above isn't the only article I've read that mistakingly gives Diz credit for the quip. Either way it's funny.
