Sounds Swing


It Don’t Mean A Thing If It Ain’t Got That Swing : This theme is the définition of the swing. Just listen to it and you’ll know wat the swing means. We can hear Ella Fitzgerald sing in this version.


Moanin : This is a theme from Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers and this is another swing lesson. A short theme but all is said in it.


Fables Of Faubus : A theme from Charles Mingus the great contrebassist. This song is a little bit more modern.


C’est Si Bon : Nothing to say. Louis Armstrong, the master…


Blue Monk : A blues from the wonderful pianist Thelonious Monk wich is here played by Count Basie.


Sunday Music


The Sea : From the album Big Calm of Morcheeba.


Shine On You Crazy Diamond : Perfect song from the Pink Floyd. This is the first track of the great album Wish You Were Here.


Hallelujah : A fantastic interpretation of that Leonard Cohen‘s song by Jeff Buckley. His voice is indescriptible.


Marigold : A kind of secret song of Nirvana (not secret anymore). The only song of Nirvana where you can hear Dave Grohl singin.


Pea : Song from Red Hot Chili Peppers on the album One Hot Minute. We can hear Flea singin.

Sounds for today

The first play-list of that blog :


My Favorite Things : A wonderful song by John Coltrane. He’s playing soprano sax on this song and the music is really high.


Devil Got My Woman : This is a song from the great blues-man Skip James. This recorded is from the original soundtrack of the movie Ghostworld. Really good movie and the first time I heard this song I was very touched.


Ernie : A song from a really nice band Fat Freddy’s Drop. These guys are from new zeland and they play a powerful dub and reggae.


Along Came Betty : Another jazz song. This is a theme from Benny Golson and is this version we can hear Benny Golson with Art Blakey And The Jazz Messengers.


Mr Tambourine Man : A great song from Bob Dylan. Nothing more to say.
