Jazzstandards.com/Website updates/ & another live recording

In this blog post

1. Discoveries on the internet jazzstandards.com
2.Geofflapp.com is now updated
3. More music to be recorded Nov. 7 at St. Clement’s Church

I wanted to mention a few things..as I have been away from the computer for awhile. Check out http://www.jazzstandards.com/. This link will point to the list of songs that are considered jazz standards. (about 700). You can read the entry which provides the criteria for the selections.  I very much liked the Amazon widget which has short sound files of the different versions, Very handy for a musicians and a real kick to listen to the various approaches.

One of the definitions from the site: A “jazz standard” is a composition that is held in continuing esteem and is commonly used as the basis of jazz arrangements and improvisations.

Note from Founder: Jeremy Wilson  JazzStandards.com was developed by Jeremy Wilson, a jazz fan and information management specialist. When looking for documentation on jazz standards a few years ago he found it was available, but spread out and direly in need of centralization and preservation.

Using newspaper archives, liner notes, websites and books, many of which are out of print, he has documented the origins of the top 100 jazz standards. And more are on the way.

All in all, I highly recommend this site. Hopefully, you will find it as interesting as I did.

Geofflapp.com is now updated

After a long haul and an epic battle with procrastination (I won) I have finally had my main site updated. I’ve even included a chat box (meebo) that connects to many other chat applications. Feel free to pay the site a visit and if you have some recommendations please send them my way. I now have a “Listening Room” on the site where you can stream my last 2 musical projects.

Another Live Recording is on the way Nov 7 in Montreal

After much consideration/soul searching I have decided to record another session at St. Clement’s Church. I enjoy so many tunes that it’s sometimes very difficult to choose which one to record. It’s a bit different with my originals, I prefer to listen to them once recorded as this lets me analyze them (over and over, LOL) and from that….I make the changes that fit with my concept. It’s not a speedy process,  and it does get a bit messy but I have to claim it as my own.

till the next post. cheers
