By the closing months of 1981 Frank Zappa had already released five albums during that productive year. Three of these records were his instrumental guitar collections - Shut Up 'n Play Yer Guitar, Shut Up 'n Play Yer Guitar Some More, and The Return of the Son of Shut Up 'n Play Yer Guitar - initially sold via mail order but later released through CBS. There was also the live double Tinseltown Rebellion and the 2-LP studio set You Are What You Is, released in September. Zappa also hit the road in September 81, performing a largely domestic tour that criss-crossed the US and took in a couple of shows in Canada between September and Christmas. On board for the tour were Frank s latest touring band, comprising Chad Wackerman on drums, Ed Mann on percussion, Tommy Mars on keyboards, Scott Thunes on bass, with Steve Vai and Ray White on guitar.

MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 11 Tracks | 46:47 | 106 MB
Genre: Jazz, Swing, Gypsy Swing | Label: Gypsy Swing Revue

The music of Gypsy Swing Revue is the swinging jazz of the 30's and 40's plus a cross-section of songs from the modern Gypsy Jazz repertoire. With instrumentation similar to Django s Hot Club, namely: two acoustic guitars, upright bass, and violin, each Gypsy Swing Revue performance provides exciting, engaging music for all to enjoy. This album was recorded 'live' in the studio, without any overdubs or edits. Notable tracks include two original compositions (Elliot Reed's Zapala, and Farewell, by Art Gibson), one of the very few bolero-style tunes composed by Django Reinhardt (Troublant Bolero), the title track, a timeless standard by Irving Berlin (Puttin' On The Ritz)…

It should come as no surprise that the music you listen to as a teenager echoes through your neurological pathways more than any other. Teenage music just means so much - it helps you figure out who you are and who you want to become. You listen to the same things over and over while feeling serious feelings.

Benny Goodman took some stylistic chances during his 11-year tenure with Capitol. He listened closely to, then flirted with, bebop during this time, not altering his own swing-based playing but inserting it into a bop framework. He also played traditional swing in various small groups. The sessions covered on this most recent Mosaic four-disc (six-album) set were originally issued on a number of 10" and 12" albums, as well as the CDs BG in Hi Fi and The Benny Goodman Story, a Japanese issue.
