Glad to see there are other latin jazz lovers here. I tend to like bebop and west coast jazz (mostly from the 50s early 60) but that is because I'm listening to improve my ability as a musician as well as just enjoying the 'ride'.


But that type of jazz can be too 'busy' for many people, like my wife. She loves jazz but just love latin jazz the most. It has that great feel and swings gently but there is still very fine improvisation.


So typically when we are together and listening to music we play latin jazz.

Right now I am listening to the "Swingers and Big Bands." channel on our Comcast cable network. When I hear music from the thirties and forties, my heart is lifted to heights unknown. At the tender age of 42, it was necessary for me to go into a nursing home for 30 days after a very fragile surgery for which the slightest jostle of my foot may have resulted in an amputation. I was in a great deal of pain but the presence of speakers that had forties-style music coursing through the air waves all day, made my stay infinitely happier. Actually, I didn't want to come home. Seven years later, I was divorced.

Now, no one tells me what I can or cannot listen to....

Billie Holiday is singing about her man as I write.

This is my first time posting ont he message boards for three years.

I was writing a book about Joan Crawfiord at that time...

Frank-------Ohio, Mrs. Miller. A perfect example of 'so bad, it's good'. Karaoke night at the Senior Citizens Center. Reminds me of Tiny Tim, who was a far better(?) singer than Mrs Miller.







SansFin, I've never heard of Nox Arcana. However, the list of things I've never heard of is quite extensive. So much good music to listen to. Too much for one lifetime.







Like Beethoven said "I shall hear in Heaven." Assuming I get there in the first place, which is far from being a done deal at the moment.







More great music you've never heard before.







*Alan Lee Silva - The Sprint*








Recordings of this mans music are very hard to find. Here's a group of amazing twelve-year-olds playing 'The Sprint'. They're not the New York Symphony Orchestra, but this is music to my ears nevertheless.



*Otto Nicolai - Die lustigen Weiber von Windsor Overture*








The start of this wonderful overture always reminds me of Randy Newman's music for 'The Natural'.



*Gluck - Overture in D Major for string orchestra*








Cannot find a recording of this overture anywhere! If anyone knows of a recorded version I'd be grateful if you'd send the information my way. CD, vinyl, 78 rpm, wax cylinder, any damn thing,







Best wishes
