Krupa versus Bernstein: The Jazz-Classical Throwdown
Blog Name: Johnny D's Jazz JournalAuthor: Posted on: May 26, 2013

 

     Gene Krupa and Leonard Bernstein

     As a kid with eclectic tastes growing up in a musical family, I never thought about one genre being better or more important than another, or that musical genres needed to remain segregated, that merging them amounted to sacrilege. After playing percussion in youth orchestras, drums in various rock and soul bands, and piano in a jazz trio, I was in my mid-20s before I finally assembled a band that could play the smorgasbord of music I’d been composing since age 10.

UPDATE: Presenting the NEW...
Want a Healthy Heart? Listen to This.
Blog Name: Riffs on RadioAuthor: Posted on: May 23, 2013

The University of Maryland Medical Center researchers had study participants choose music that  made them feel good and brought them a healthy heart sense of joy.  It turned out that listening to their selections actually  caused tissue in the inner lining of blood vessels to dilate (or expand) in order to increase blood flow. Specifically, the diameter of blood vessels grew by 26 percent when a person listened to happy music.

I’m not suggesting that you replace exercise with music to improve your heart health, but it’s still a cool factoid.  Couple that with my main man, Daniel Levitin’s research that shows that music can lift your spirits, good music is obviously good “medicine.”  

 

And you know what else is good for your circulation? Laughter!  What?  Yeah, all those jokes at the gym actually improve my workout.laughing heart

 

“We had previously demonstrated that positive emotions, such as laughter, were good for vascular health. So, a logical question was whether other emotions, such as those evoked by music, have a similar effect,” says principal investigator Michael Miller, M.D., director of preventive cardiology at the University of Maryland Medical Center and associate professor of medicine at the University Of Maryland School Of Medicine.

All this hard research simply underscores the real value to a business in aligning itself with an All-Music radio station like Jazz 88.3. You get the 'Halo Effect’ of listeners patronizing your business because they appreciate your company helping us do what we do, coupled with the fact that you are actually encouraging your customers’ cardiovascular health!  Wow, what a tremendous public service your business is doing.  

 Oh, by the way, listening to anxiety-triggering music caused the diameter of the subject's blood vessels to decrease by 6 percent. So be careful what you listen to.  

The Low Down
Blog Name: Johnny D's Jazz JournalAuthor: Posted on: May 17, 2013

     Perhaps I started feeling empathy for bass players many years ago when I realized that low-noters were replacing drummers in the jokes that musicians like to tell. As a drummer, I was relieved when an old joke such as, "How do you know when a stage is perfectly level? — the drummer is drooling from both corners of his mouth," was changed to make bass players the objects of ridicule. But it also occurred to me that it was a positive development for people to be thinking about bassists at all.

Deja Entendu: The Facts About Contrafacts
Blog Name: Johnny D's Jazz JournalAuthor: Posted on: May 10, 2013
The title and theme of my show on Sunday, May 12, 2013 (3-5 p.m. PDT) is “Deja Entendu”. You know that “deja vu” (French for “already seen”) is that strange feeling that you’ve experienced something in the exactly the same way before. “Deja Entendu” is the sense that you’ve heard something before. The theme was inspired by an email I received in February from Erie, Pennsylvania-based jazz guitarist and music store proprietor Jim Lynch. He was listening to the streaming version of my show when I aired pianist Benny Green’s tune, “Benny's Crib”. Until I identified the artist and the track, Jim assumed that he was listening to an interesting arrangement of the Jimmy Giuffre composition, “Four Brothers”.
