Jazz quintet excerpt

Member for

Greetings,

I've been recording musicians in my neighborhood. Here is a song excerpt. The group is a quintet led by sax player Carlos Crull. Carlos is the best known jazz musician gigging in my hometown of Pueblo, CO. This group plays a weekly gig at my neighborhood bar. They set up in a corner, I stick an ORTF mic pair in front of them and hit record.

Yeah! Real nice. Certainly a nice way to listen to jazz. Not all plug-ined out. Very listenable. Nice stereo. Good placement of your microphone. So what do you do for an encore? You didn't even post the entire song? That's sort of like making love to a woman, getting off and then getting off before I'm done. And you expect me to make dinner? Geez unscrewed again.

Thanks.

I got some advice. Quite using all those free services that suck my time up.

I haven't even been able to hear it yet...the flac file crapped out my version of Yahoo Music Match and then the other file gave me the option, frankly I was financially humiliated, to choose between, what was it, no dollars and Mo dollars?

It's just too much sugar for a dime :)

And as I understand it...it's a snippet! A snippet? What in the wide world of the National Football League are we being baited with a piece of a song for?

Can't we be trusted with a whole song?

Someone talking out there on the world wide web saying that RO members don't have the attention span to listen to anything longer then 30 seconds but they can be fooled if you give them the start, scoop out the middle and tag on the end and hit the fade?


Soundclick.com works for me too.
Myspace.com is another...

Happy with results for my own enjoyment.

FWIW. The band is happy to have an archive of their "favorite" gig, if not their best paying one. I am really enjoying listening to a Sunday session over the next week. The performances are very engaging on both headphones and on my home 2 channel stereo rig. When I listen over speakers I need to push up the perceived volume higher than with headphones. I also find the mic perspective quite different and in many ways more enjoyable than listening live in the bar. The live sound level is often at the threshold of what I'm comfortable with - I wear earplugs for a large part of the gig.
