I’m actually very, very impressed with this pedal. It sounds like it tracks really well and chords ring through beautifully. Way to fucking go, EHX…

I THOUGHT THE SOUNDTRACK FOR THE GREAT GATSBY WAS CLEVER, AND HEAR ME OUT ON THIS.

I am seeing loads of people who didn’t like the soundtrack for Gatsby. I can see why you wouldn’t like it, its set in the twenties and would probably have twenties music. I actually thought it was incredibly clever to use hip-hop and rap and modern music as the soundtrack. Hear me out on this. So, in the 20’s, jazz music was considered the work of the devil, the root of evil, and generally a bad thing. In Chicago(the musical) there’s that line “Stay away from Jazz and liquor”. So Gatsby’s parties were incredibly edgy with his booze and burlesque dancers and people from all walks of life and his scary, new-fangled music. 

So when you consider what the popular opinion of Hip-hop and Rap music among conservatives and stuffy people, it makes a great deal of sense. People think of that music as a bit edgy. If the music at Gatsby’s party and in general had been contemporary jazz, we wouldn’t have gotten the same feelings that we got from the modern music.Don’t get me wrong, I am an enormous fan of old jazz, its like three quarters of my iTunes Library, but it would have come across as vintage, quaint, or even boring to some people. But with the rap and the hip hop and the pop music, we see how crazy his parties were on a scale we understand. We comprehend through the zeitgeist.

What would you do to have legendary jazz drummer Elvin Jones go through step by step, how he creates his drum solos? Turns out all you have to do is watch this video of him in the late 70’s explaining his process. It’s an incredibly insightful look into one of the most original and powerful forces to have ever played music.

absolutely ridiculous build up, just insane. Unfortunately, I don’t know the names of any of the players besides Jones, just that it’s a version of his Jazz Machine group
