Sorry he may be a gifted painist but as a compser i really dont see the logic or the vibe of the music he plays. The album cover speeks for its self when you hear his music.  Sad

WOW that was cool , he must of had alot of time on his hands to plan this event out. It was cool to see how he used the glass bottles. Keep in mind you can use anything that makes sound to make music

New shoes:
This song had a very modern feel to it. It was the beginning that really reminded me of good old rock and roll. It is no wonder why rock and roll is the next upcoming genre. It is really unlike something we have heard before in this class. The keyboard is definitely playing great giving it more of a concerto feel. They have an unmistakable electric sound. The tempo seems to be medium. Moving from slow and uprising frequently.
Portrait of Tracy: It is this song that I see bass in a new light. It was a soft yet deep sound. It is a very moving piece. Although, it was pretty dull I appreciated it to the fullest. It is truly a beautiful song. It reminds me of a man who is playing because his heart is broken. This is a very touching and moving piece. It really makes you stop and take note of your beautiful surroundings. I can clearly hear the bass guitar and I love it. It seems almost simple but a masterpiece! Latin Dance:By far, my absolute favorite! I enjoy listening to any Latin music or anything with a Latin feel, so this hit home for me. I couldn’t really tell what it was in the beginning but I caught on. It sounds like a band that would be playing in bayside or somewhere on an island. Very happy and enjoyable feel to it. I would say it is almost a fast tempo and surely nothing traditional. I was a little surprised this would be considered jazz. It all sounded great music is for everyone to enjoy in one shape or form    Grin

Your right the viseo is cool and keep in mind as long as you have a beat or tempo its music. Look at the musical Stomp it uses buckets and trash can to make the music.  Wink

Billie's Bounce:
The form of and type of this music is Jazz. I liked the way the trumpets were playing together and the tempo was nice. The bass was keeping the bass as the trumpet went and did what it does best. The music made me feel upbeat and happy. I enjoyed this piece. It was a fun to listen to and dance too.
Stormy Weather:
Stormy Weather is for sure a Blues song. The tempo of this selection is very slow and mellow. It meant to make u feel and listen to the words I feel. The base is playing in a low tone, a couple hits not too fast. Other than the bass you can hear a trumpet answering and backing up the vocals. Sometimes imitating the words. It was a clear call and answer style of music she would call and the brass would answer.
The Style of music I think Manteca is be-bop. Not really sure but I love this song. Other than the drums and bass, which are, playing an important role in the song is the trumpet, which are enhancing the tempo. Following the drums and bass keeping it fast and nice to dance too. I enjoyed this song.
Rocks in my bed:
This song is for sure a blues song. It’s talking about sad stuff and keeping a mellow tempo. The low drum in the background is the one keeping the tempo and it’s about 1 beat a second. The bass is also playing nicely with the tempo followed by the flute which is kina doing its own thing. I enjoyed this blues song.
For sure this song is a be bop song. The fact that you can’t understand the lyrics makes it fun and makes you want to just hum to it. You couldn’t really hear the drums I just mostly heard the symbols and heard the bass going along with the tempo. Easy to dance to or just tap your foot. I enjoyed the song very much.

Cotton Tail is a nice song with a very fast tempo. Very high energy  loud . For its time must of be one hell of a dance. As reading the book of conise  guide to Jazz, you all the beats the tripets . Looking at some videos or better yet you tubes clips aout the music and times. How people were always dressed to impress not like these days that poeple dress down or don't dress at all. So i can imange how they danced to the music. For my taste its is too fast and load. Now Georgia on my mind is nice tempo very relaxing piece of music. Steady and mellow tempo relaxing. I enjoy listing to jazz when studying or just want to relax. The beat was is slow and steady I'm not a music major so my ear does ot pick up all the beats as a music syundent would. I do enjoy slow mellow jazz. I try to listen to brazilian jazz I don't understand the words but do enjoy the beat and relaxing tones.  Black Bottom  Stomp sorry was something out of disney ride or a commercial. Did not like the beat or all he horns. It was dixie land music which to my ear was not appealing. There was many soloist and accompanist roles. There is a rhythm section and the a-a-b-a , chord progressions. Looking on many people or groups playing the music are enjoying them selves. Dixieland music is not my taste.

"Black Bottom Stomp" is a jazz song. It was composed by Jelly Roll Morton in 1925 and was originally entitled "Queen of Spades". It was recorded in Chicago by Morton and His Red Hot Peppers on September 15, 1926

"Cotton Tail" is a 1940 composition by Duke Ellington.[1] It is based on the rhythm changes from George Gershwin's "I Got Rhythm". The first Ellington recording (2 May 1940) is notable for the driving tenor saxophone solo by Ben Webster. Originally an instrumental, "Cotton Tail" later had lyrics written for it by Ellington. Later, more lyrics were written, based on the 1940 recording, by Jon Hendricks, and recorded by Lambert, Hendricks and Ross.

"Georgia on My Mind" is a song written in 1930 by Hoagy Carmichael (music) and Stuart Gorrell (lyrics). It is the official state song of the U.S. state of Georgia. Gorrell wrote the lyrics for Hoagy's sister, Georgia Carmichael [1]. However, the lyrics of the song are ambiguous enough to refer either to the state or to a woman named "Georgia". Carmichael's 1965 autobiography, Sometimes I Wonder, records the origin: a friend, saxophonist and bandleader Frankie Trumbauer, suggested: "Why don't you write a song called 'Georgia?' Nobody lost much writing about the South." Thus, the song is universally believed to have been written about the state.

The song was first recorded on September 15, 1930 in New York by Hoagy Carmichael and His Orchestra with Bix Beiderbecke on muted cornet and Hoagy Carmichael on vocals. The recording was part of Bix Beiderbecke's last recording session. The recording was released as Victor 23013 with "One Night in Havana".

Frankie Trumbauer had the first major hit recording in 1931 when his recording made the top ten on the charts. Trumbauer had suggested that Carmichael compose the song.

Ray Charles, a native of Georgia, recorded it in 1960 on the album The Genius Hits the Road. It became Georgia's state song in 1979. Inspired by this blues version, Willie Nelson formally introduced the song to country audiences in 1978 as a #1 Country/Western hit.
