Satchmo Meets Big T 1944-58
Satchmo Meets Big T 1944-58
I have listened to the vast majority of songs on which Jack Teagarden appears, and I have always been a fan of Louis Armstrong. I purchased this CD with high expectations.

Of the 18 selections here, 16 are from the 1947-50 period when Jack played with Louis's All Star group. The instrumental and vocal interactions are wonderful. Jack and Louis shared a relaxed camaraderie, which is stunningly evident with their vocal interplay on 'Rockin' Chair.'

However, the sound on "Satchmo Meets Big T" is abysmal. The music sounds severely muffled. Much of the musical detail has been destroyed by the primitive noise reduction technology of the era when this CD was issued (1990). Forget about hearing the drum cymbals - heck, forget about hearing much of anything above a frequency of 600 Hz or so.

Bottom line: Wonderful music, terrible digital remastering. If you can tolerate the poor sound, you will love the CD. If fidelity is important, you will be frustrated. Interestingly, the same Giants of Jazz label has released a Teagarden CD with excellent sound: "Jack Teagarden Plays & Sings - Stars Fell on Alabama."

Note: The DVD "Jazz on a Summer's Day" is an innovative film documenting the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival. Seeing and hearing the relaxed camaraderie Jack and Louis share when performing "Rockin' Chair" is a joy to behold. I also recommend The Jazz Legends/Storyville DVD "Dixieland Jazz, Vol. 1" features ten Snader Telescriptions that Jack Teagarden made in the early 1950s.
Bravado Beatles 'Hard Days Night' Queen 4 Piece Sheet Set

This vivid and cheerful Beatles comforter set, will make quite a statement in my son's otherwise dreary dorm room! So far it has dominated his room's color palette with matching red, white, and blue towels, black fridge, microwave, storage crates etc. The comforter is pleasantly smooth to the touch, very pliable and it has no loose threads or imperfections. In addition to the included Union Jack pillowcase, I purchased a black and white John Lennon pillowcase to add to the ensemble which makes the set look a little more "grown up" and sophisticated for a university student. Unfortunately, since the coordinating bedding isn't available in Twin-XL, I purchased a "black" sheet set which looks great because it accentuates the Union Jack pillowcase, making it stand out that make more! So don't be timid about experimenting with other coordinating sheet sets especially in red, white or blue! This comforter set is guaranteed to add a remarkable splash of color to any room! Perfect for the "Beatles fan" in the family!

Conoscevo questo lavoro grazie agli ascolti in rete, una versione Dylaniana abbastanza elettrica da piacermi. Devo dire che il prodotto è in una confezione molto elegante, ottima qualità di stampa e suono molto presente. Unico difetto uno dei due dischi è ondulato. Niente che non possa suonare ma non dovrebbe succedere nei vinili di peso elevato.
Christmas In The Heart
Christmas In The Heart
Many people thought that Bob Dylan's album Christmas in the Heart must have been some kind of sick holiday joke back in 2009, but I think it has held up well in the years since. This is one of the more offbeat, but finest holiday albums released in the past 20 to 25 years. And as the years (and Christmases) go by, it seems more and more that this is the Christmas seed from which all of Dylan's recent "great American songbook" albums have sprung from. This album was meant to echo the classic, old-time Xmas songs of way back when. Like Sinatra, Doris Day, Bing Crosby, Burl Ives and company. The arrangements and production values reflect that. Yes, Bob's voice is ragged, creakly, sandpapery and rough, but you get a feeling that he puts new life into these songs which can seem tired at best in the hands of another singer. And you feel that he truly believes the sentiments expressed in these songs, something very rare in today's Xmas albums. Another trick of the trade that Bob (and perhaps everybody) knows: just like the late great Leonard Cohen, Bob uses sweet female voices to be the sugar on his sometimes hard to get vocals. The backup singers here remind me of the Andrews Sisters. The point is that this album works.
Highlights include Here Comes Santa Claus, I'll Be Home for Christmas, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, The Christmas Song and more. I'd never heard the song Christmas Island before, but now I have to rank it among my favorite Xmas songs. It's cute and kitschy. This album is recommended for Dylan fans, Xmas album nuts, and those who grow a bit tired of the holiday fare on Lite FM. It's also a wonderful primer for those who wish to get into (or try to appreciate) Dylan's more recent standards albums, Shadows in the Night, Fallen Angels and Triplicate. All in all a nice recommendation. Happy (very early) Holidays!------------------------------PEACE
BTW-The one bad song was Must Be Santa. Dylan doing a polka??!!

I am critical about everything in my life; so understand, I have high standards about how I like things to be and I like to keep things the way they use to be, like classic rock.

This Karaoke CD doesn't sound all that good but, it doesn't sound all that bad either. Just don't use it for professional reasons, like auditioning for "America's Got Talent" or live performances at fairgrounds or bars. Use it for personal entertainment, Karaoke bars, in your car driving home from work or practice at home.

Exactly as expected but this flavor is very hard to find nowadays so the value for the money is a little off. We moved and it is not available in our area except Panda Express had it and they just discontinued it and switched to a different brand. So we are no longer able to get it anywhere. Really wanted to surprise my kid with it for a birthday present so I paid this high price but feels priceless when they opened their gift and realized they finally got one again and got this whole case. Would consider purchasing continuously if the price was a little cheaper.

ok, since Covid began, i have been working at home and i have about 2-3 weekly video conferences. I absolutely do not like the built-in camera on my surface book and i have already gone through 2 other webcams but i just don't like their limitations and performance. I opted to shell out a few extra bucks for this camera and i couldn't be happier. I noticed the difference immediately out of the box as it was a bit more rugged-looking and heavier and yes the picture is fantastic. I also like how it has the stick on a privacy cap and an option for a tripod.

My DS loves dinosaurs. Don't know why, but he does. And we have looked everywhere around for a good plush one for him but it is as if the good design or size toys for boys do not exist until we found this one. It is extremely soft, like a velvet yet my kid does not sinks in it. This toy holds its shape. Plus it is somewhat realistic looking without being too scary. Because 99% of dinosaurs are either too scary for little kids or bizarrely made and resemble a giraffe more than a dinosaur. This checked on all my criteria. All you mom's looking for a nice big plush./stuffed toy dinosaurs for your little one look no further.

Absolutely hilarious, in particular if you were a fan of the cartoon series way back when; this spoof completely captures the tone. It is somewhat vulgar, so parents with a more... "sheltering" approach towards childrearing will want to look elsewhere for a quick family show. Outside of that, excellent work.

I did read a reviewer who commented on the fact that there was no "story." What? I guess this is true-'ish, if by "story" that reviewer was referring to a more developed and "meaty" series than this spoof was intending. Consider that each episode is a little less than 5 minutes long--and there are a total of 4 (that 5th one doesn't really count). I can tell you this: you won't be getting "A Game Of Thrones" magnitude story from this. LOL.

Frankly, my guess is that this was meant to be a joke of an old cartoon series classic--nothing more, nothing less. And from that angle, this totally nails it! That said, I wouldn't be opposed to a more developed and interesting series that could have consequential themes interwoven into it in order to turn this small concept into something larger and meaningful. I could certainly see both symbolic and satirical undertones to deliver a somber and profound (much needed) societal message beyond simple comedy. Must definitely there is room for a commentary series here that could mirror darkly or mock what is happening in the real world and all of its ironies. Although this spoof did do some of that, it was simply skimming at it and nowhere near impactful. Hence, I would argue that it is unfair to judge this as something that it was not meant to be. It was fun, funny, and total gag! I truly enjoyed to watch it and I think you will too if you have a sense of humor. Kudos to the creators!

My 6 year old grandson liked it but it was a little small for him (he is average sized) and the glove is not a solid piece but rather a piece that covers the front of your arm with elastic in the back to hold it on. It’s not bad for the price but I was disappointed in the quality.
