Perodically, I come accross some great songs that I want to share! biggrin.gif

First, here's a cute song by Jesse Stafford and his Orchestra, it's called "All A-Twitter"http://65.45.103.7/songs/Staffordo/allatwitter.ram

and another by Jesse Stafford is "Doin' the Racoon" http://65.45.103.7/songs/Staffordo/dointheracoon.ram

..."Georgianna" http://65.45.103.7/songs/Staffordo/glorianna.ram


"You'll Never Know" http://65.45.103.7/songs/Staffordo/youllneverknow.ram (this one has a weird "Noise through horn sound" (la deee daaa).... as on the forum "Vocal sounds through Horns"...)

Also, here are a couple from The Travelers:

"Breakaway" http://65.45.103.7/Songs/dorseybros/breakaway.ram
"Fine and Dandy" http://65.45.103.7/Songs/dorseybros/fineanddandy.ram

I spend alot of time at the library searching for songs on various websites to record on my mini disk player/recorder in one hours spurts at the public library here in San Diego, Ca... It's sure hard not to dance in my seat and make a comotion and disturb my neighbors in the next little cubicle!

Anyway Enjoy!!

Love,
Gregory laugh.gif

Again, the library or Dismuke site prevents me from typeing out the website name... don't know why... let's do it in a riddle...

It rhymes with bed, and is another name for the color scarlet:

then, a three letter word for the thing that an oven does when turn it on...

then you add the word: jazz

put it all together, then you have the name of a popular jazz website or "ARCHIVE"... HINT HINT!!!

If you want to play these tunes, you will have to figure out this mess!

Love,
Gregory

Missourians-- Market Street Stomp

Slim Lamar and His Southerners- You Never Did That Before, Better Then Nothing

Hollywood Shufflers- Low Down Rythm

Bernie Schultz and His Crescent Orch.-- Are a lot of fun

Ben Selvin's version of Miss Annabelle Lee is well done

And of course, one of My favorite bands: Waring's Pennsylvanians- Glorianna, Lila, Who's Blue Now, Navy Blues, My Castle In Spain Is A Shack In The Lane, Stack O' Lee Blues-1928, Jaricho, etc.

I concur with Rostok and Gregory. Thanks for posting new sites and telling us a little about them. Also, thanks for noting your favorite songs. I need to branch out and listen to new music -- one reason I like Dismuke Radio. It forces you into variety. But it's nice to know that someone thinks this is a song worth listening, too. So far, Gregory is right on with his tastes, particularly all those songs about girls (Sweet Jennie Lee, Miss Annabelle Lee, etc.). Thanks. Gart

Just heard a great one this morning- it's

"It Must Be Love" - B.A. Rolfe and His Lucky Strike Orchestra

(to find it: go to amazon and type in "hot dance of the roaring 20's"- it's on that album.)

You can't. What I've done in the past is use your computer's recorder program to record the song as it is playing.

Gregory,

I agree with your enthusiasm for RWK & his orchestra - great stuff! ... although I would be inclined to add "Crazy Rhythm" to the list that you provided... and that recording of "Mountain Greenery" is outstanding! I can't stop humming it :-)

Ian

Gregory,


I just got though listening to all of the RWK recordings you listed. I really enjoyed all of the selections. What wonderful music! I enjoyed them so much that I decided to buy the cd you pictured. This music is so uplifting! I can't emagine what it must have been like to have lived in a time when this kind of music was the norm. Does anyone know of a working time machine? I would love to spend an evening in one of those grand ballrooms of that era.



Thanks


P.S. Gregory,

You must have great self control to be able to listen to this kind of music in a library.

If I may offer some assistance... let me provide a direct link to the page Gregory. It's easier than typing the website name backwards (at least I think it is easier...) You can do this yourself by using the "http://" button when you compose your posts. Then you enter the url of the page and a title. This doesn't get filtered and edited like the regular text.

Select this link for the Roger Wolfe Kahn and His Orchestra Page at Red Hot Jazz

I concurr that there is alot of great music available there... smile.gif

After surfing around a little, I was both surprised and disappointed to find out that there is no website dedicated to Roger Wolfe Kahn -What a shame :-( From the biographical info available, it sounds like he was quite a brilliant individual in both the fields of music and aviation. By the time he was in his teens, he had mastered 18 different instruments. Why no website?? Even the domain name "rogerwolfekahn.com" is still available.

Somebody please go to networksolutions.com and register the domain name. Then, create a website. RWK deserves to have his own website... Don't you think?

You know, Roger Wolfe Kahn was very wealthy as a result of being the son of Otto Kahn, the famous financier who was also a board member of the Metropolitan Opera. That's how RWK was able to have a top notch dance band with outstanding musicians and a recording contract with Victor when he was only 16 years old. Perhaps the heirs to the Kahn fortune, whoever they are, would be interested in financing such a site. Sure wouldn't hurt anyone interested in taking such an endeavor on to ask.

I recently got an .mpg movie of Roger Wolfe Kahn's 1932 musical short feature "The Yacht Party" - and it is really neat. You get to see Kahn conducting the band - he looks very young and skinny. You also get to see a young Artie Shaw do a brief clarinet solo. At the end of the film, Kahn, who later gave up the music business in order to become an aviator and test pilot, performs some stunts in his airplane while the crowd on the yacht below dances to his band's music. (I never did figure out how he was supposed to get on the airplane from the yacht). And the music throughout is nice and peppy. The film has a very definite late '20s /early '30s atmosphere to it. For those of you with a broadband connection, you can download a copy of the film to your hard drive by right clicking on this link: http://dismuke.net/etcfiles/kahn/1932%20Th...Yacht_Party.mpg

The film is 9 minutes long. Be aware, however, the the file is 165 meg in size. I don't have enough experience yet with movie files to figure out how I would need to convert it in order to make it stream for those with lower bandwidth connections.

I want a pony, a Summer estate, and a top-notch New York Jazz band!...

Ya, I know he was a rich kid ... but he must have had something of his own to offer having learned 18 instruments by the age of 16 (presuming that's true) He sure didn't seem to be too lazy.

Unfortunately, my father was NOT a wealthy banker -and was NOT able to buy me my own web-hosting company... so I do NOT enjoy an idle life of leisure. Otherwise, I would consider taking on another web project dedicated to RWK's career myself. Instead, I must solicit the enthusiasm and willingness of others.

I look forward to watching the film; I will download it before going to bed tonight...

Thanks for making it available :-)
