  1. This one's so sick it's funny In the last panel, they are beating up Mr. Pastis, the cartoonist. (He deserved it)
  2. When I was a child, I walked into a record store and asked the owner if he could recommend a saxophone record. I was in beginning band at school and didn't know any famous sax players yet. The clerk sent me home with this one. The music was a bit over my head at the time, but I grew to love it. I wore out two vinyl LPs and finally got it in CD. The orchestra was written and arranged, the sax and drum parts are completely improvised. It's not jazz, it's not classical, it's not pop, it's not like anything Stan Getz did before or after, it's in a class by itself, and the sax improvisations are superb. Focus - Stan Getz (entire album)
  3. Satin Doll - Duke Ellington & Billy Strayhorn with lyrics by Johnny Mercer - Ella Fitzgerald singing Not my very favorite version but it's one of the most famous
  4. Undun - The Guess Who Burton Cummings sang lead and played the excellent flute solo. Randy Bachman's guitar comping behind the vocals is utterly fantastic IMHO. I wish I could do that!!! (although I play guitar, my primary instruments are saxophone and windsynth)
  5. When I was a little child and I heard Bei Mir Bist Du Shein played on mom's radio, I thought the Andrews Sisters were singing My Dear Mister Shane. Looks like I wasn't the only one: Bei Mir Bist Du Shein "My Dear Mr.Shane" by The Satin Dollz And the Andrews Sisters (who although they sang corny music by today's standards, they did it very, very well).
  6. I'm rather new here, and I immediately found a home. Helpful people with a sense of humor and a sense of community. Notes
  7. Dvořák - Symphony n°7 - Cleveland Orchestra, George Szell
  8. How does one follow that???? I Want Your $EX - George Michael
  9. I hope you have your laptop camera covered up. I use a band-aid
  10. The Arabian Nights, complete Ballet in two Acts - Fikret Amirov Actually I'm listening to this on my CD player, while I do some bookkeeping for my Norton Music Band-in-a-Box business. it's and incredible piece of music.
