It's Bebop Week!

Bebop or bop is a style of jazz characterized by fast tempo, instrumental virtuosity and improvisation based on the combination of harmonic structure and melody. It was developed in the early and mid-1940s. It first surfaced in musicians' argot some time during the first two years of American involvement in the Second World War. This style of jazz ultimately became synonymous with modern jazz, as either category reached a certain final maturity in the 1960s.

It's Showtune Week!

A show tune is a popular song originally written as part of the score of a "show" (or stage musical), especially if the piece in question has become a "standard", more or less detached in most people's minds from the original context.

Default Lest we forget ... April's deaths

Sorry, does the thread advertised have to be totally new, ie separate from your journal, or can it be something featured in said journal? If the latter, then perhaps people might be interested in paying their respects to those who have passed on in the music community over the years during April. This is a monthly feature I run, with the help of the Bitter Suite Band website, and reminds us of some of the greats who have gone before us to that Great Gig in the Sky.

Check it out at http://www.musicbanter.com/members-j...ml#post1179247

(If I've misinterpreted the spirit of this thread, apologies, and perhaps someone would care to set me straight...)

Biggest is not always best, but in the case of Trollheart's journal it is! Its an absolute gold-mine of a journal and if you don't know it, you should. Said my piece for the day.
