Bix Beiderbecke - Dreams By The Lake

Oh my - it's Jeff alone again! Yep, Pat is off this weekend so we change the format up a bit. I hope Pat is not mad!! Jeff talks about one of his boyhood jazz idols (Bix) and through the presentation, an interesting look at the 1920's. Listen to a sample of some of Bix's jazz solos as well as an original song Jeff wrote last year about a summer in 1924 called "Dreams By The Lake". The song won quite a few honors on last year.

(for purists, I realized I referred to Bix's trumpet a couple of times, of course he played cornet, not trumpet doh!)

Pat will be back next week for more of a 'normal' show. Learn, laugh and love with Jeff and Pat!

    Hey Jeffie, great song! I know, I know I have known you forever, but I haven't listened to your music much (other than my birthday songs! Heh heh). GREAT song, really, I enjoyed it.

    But, don't get too comfy with me not being there. I'm IN CHARGE, you know. Pat, the original Al Haig.

    Jeff - Nice, nice work. I am NOT a jazz fan, but I thought podcast was outstanding. Of course, I also liked the bit/music retrospective as well. It did seem like something was missing...a certain Je ne sais quoi....hmmm...I know - a crappy beatles song parody! That would have been perfect.

    Very cool. I love a lot of the old jazz stuff, and there's something about a sad story of some shooting star musician that is oddly captivating. The song was brilliant... it's no wonder it got all those accolades on Garage Band.

    I hope Pat's having fun, slacking off her PodCasting duties wherever she is... I hope she's not having to deal with a funeral or something... Now, I feel like an idiot... Damn.

    Haha, no worries Brad! I was in Alabama, visiting my parents. There was lots of shopping and eating that was done. Mom sent me home with lasagna, cookies, and Limoncello! Yum!
