I like Benny Goodman. Just goofin off this weekend, I listened to a top 50 Big Band/Swing deal on Itunes. I repeatedly found my toe tapping to Benny - and some Glen Miller too. So, I purchased "The Essential Benny Goodman". I think my dad liked that type of Jazz....anyway.....there it is.

This thread is enthusiastically approved by me.

Big band jazz is some of the greatest LIVE music you can experience, IMO. And Axioms can make those recordings come alive.

I confess that I like walkie's eek .

Thanks for the confession. If you have not already done so, try Duke Ellington (I particularly enjoy Blues in Orbit ).

Since we're all being open and everything....I too, have a confession I'd like to make.....


Mark likes The Captain and Tennile.


There. I said it. I feel better now.

Funny you should post this, I was listening to a cd yesterday I borrowed from my dad, Glen Miller Gold. It is fun/odd to hear music from a source with pops and crackles in the mix.

If you replace The Captain and Tennile with The Carpenters, I would have to admit that you would be somewhat right!

Although their music is way too easy listening, I have to admit that I think Karen Carpenter had an amazing voice.

And I admit as much in an old thread I started called Guilty Pleasures.

Then Sean, wanting to be just like me, started this thread.

I kind of feel the same way about the Carpenters, Mark.

That is, unless you're just trying to set me up, in which case I don't like them at all....

Yes, but I'm sure you prefer them when they're standing still---and within arms' reach-----so you can fondle them or punch them, nes pas.


Always call the place you live a house. When you're old, everyone else will call it a home.
