Jimmy, o corneteiro

Conversei com Mr. Lester e ele concordou comigo que seria uma injustiça escrever uma resenha sobre Marian e não escrever outra sobre Jimmy, seu marido. O cornetista Jimmy McPartland nasceu em Chicago, em 1907. Foi um dos membros do famoso grupo de músicos brancos conhecido como Austin High School Gang. Sabemos pouco sobre sua formação musical inicial, mas em 1924 já era convidado a substituir o genial Bix Beiderbecke no Wolverines. Bix, aliás, apreciava bastante o som de Jimmy que, no começo da carreira, era bastante lírico. Em menos de um ano já estava trabalhando em outras bandas, até que, em 1927, passa a integrar a de Ben Pollack. Utilizando o nome McKenzie and Condon's Chicagoans, grava diversas faixas para a Okeh com os integrantes da Austin High School, faixas estas que ajudariam a definir o estilo Chicago, nervoso, excitante e cheio da energia herdada de New Orleans. Com Pollack conseguiu se estabelecer solidamente como músico, coisa natural para quem tocava na mesma banda de Benny Goodman e Jack Teagarden. Na década de 1930, após sair da banda de Pollack, Jimmy trabalha na região de New York e Chicago. Durante o serviço militar (1942-1944), toca em diversos países da Europa, onde conhece Marian Turner, futura senhora McPartland. Voltando aos EUA, Jimmy forma pequenos grupos de Dixieland, fixando-se em New York, especialmente no Nick's, clube onde tocou por vários anos. Após mais de 60 anos de carreira, Jimmy morre em 1991, aos 84 anos. Para os visitantes curiosos fica a faixa Meet Me In Chicago., gravada em 1954, quando a corneta de Jimmy já apresentava estilo bem mais adstringente e crú, embora sem perder a candura. Na foto, Marian & Jimmy.

Whats up! I am about to start my own blog and was
wondering if you know where the best place to purchase
a website url is? I am not even sure if that's what its known as? (I'm new
to this) I'm referring to "http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=27620162&postID=413290724840046443". Exactly how do I go about obtaining one of these for the website I'm creating?
Many thanks

Good day! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking
about making my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? Many thanks

My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .
net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because
of the expenses. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using
WordPress on various websites for about a year and
am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.
net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Greetings! Quick question that's completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4. I'm trying to find a
theme or plugin that might be able to fix this problem. If you have any recommendations, please
share. Thanks!

Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm
looking to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.
P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

Howdy! It seems as though we both have a passion for the same thing.
Your blog, "Blogger: Jazzseen" and mine are very similar.

Have you ever thought about authoring a guest write-up for a similar
blog? It will definitely help gain exposure to your blog
(my site recieves a lot of traffic). If you might be interested,
contact me at: mark.fairchild@gmail.com. Many thanks

Today, I went to the beach front with my children.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
"You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear."
She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I
know this is totally off topic but I had to
tell someone!
