Mux Delixe

Though I haven’t had time to play around with it, Muxtape looks to be loads of fun. I’ll just let the tag line do the talking. Muxtape is:

a simple way to create and share mp3 mixtapes

Have any of you created muxtapes you wish to share? If so feel free to put a link in the comments — after you’re done gazing in awe at my incredibly clever title for this post, of course.

    Smart & great composers / musicians do it on both sides:
    both CDs & MP3s
    When they’re dead.

    See : Thelonius Monk http://www.monkzone.com/

    Another example.

    Music from the past just keeps reappearing. And growing again.

    Compare it with mosses in the woods ( growing in the shadow) :

    Great idea, Barry, and great link. Given that this April is the fourth anniversary of the end of my marriage, my muxtape theme is about love and loss:

    Great! Hey! I’ll do mine selection – after a few hours of sleep…. :-) bye!

    Urbangrafitto, thanks for Lucille – I’ve never heard this version! :-)

    It doesn’t surprise me, Balint. Take one guess who owns the rights to that 1969 album and will not release it on CD? I’ll attempt to upload another co-written song from that album you might be familiar with.

    Success, Balint.

    Urban, it seems as if you’re still listening to Boz Scaggs.
    So do I. Great man.

    Attention! Attention! Boz Scaggs did not cease recording or performing great music after reaching popular success in the 1970s with Silk Degrees (1976). By the way, the track of Boz’s on my muxtape is from his album Dig (2001).

  10. Balint says:

    U! Thanks for the tunes – I’ve been listenning to your “radio” for a few times. I did not know Boz Scaggs, this one is a nice tune here!

    After two days on the theme of love and loss (arrrghh), I figure it’s time for a change to the familiar, Marzi Nyman and the Estonian Dream Big Band’s Tribute to Zappa (in order of the actual performance):

    This doesn’t surprise me.

    FZ music was & still seems to be something ” new”( = a spur) in Central Europe. The countries that joined the EU recently.

    Our friend Balint ( Hungary ) knows much more about this than anybody else. He’s the real expert. http://www.zappa.hu/

    New FZ related things will happen to come from there.

    Lord, isn’t anyone but me making these muxtapes?

    Ever wonder why one person loves a particular musical piece, while another absolutely abhors it?

    Here are a dozen tracks I was barred from playing in my ex’s presence while we were married:

    Go figure?

    Urban, you are not alone: killuglyradio.muxtape.com. A little something for those who surf last.fm with the “cynical” tag.. ;-)

  15. Bálint says:

    Wow! Lots of unknown songs! :-) Lets give it a try! Meanwhile the Banned From Utopia is knocking at the door:

    Urb – thanks for your ever changing mixes! And for Sugarcane!

  17. Bálint says:

    A link to Urbangraffito – and all the others: Prince: Xpectations.
    I would be the last one to think of Prince as a real musician, but this very album is one of the BEST jazz albums I’ve ever heard. It was available only for a short time in 2002 as a download. The players are: Prince on keyboards and guitar (no vocals, thanks god), Vanessa Mae on violin, Candy Dulfer on sax, John Blackwell on drums (great!), and Rhonda Smith on bass. Have fun!

    I’ll turn your reasoning again upside down, Balint.
    - Jazz purists will say : this in not jazz. There’s that much fanatism in jazz that they’ve have turned conservative since many years. Some of them even refused to call the double LP / CD ” Big Fun” ( jewel = Lonely Fire with electric trumpet) from Miles Davis jazz when it was released.
    - Prince = great art, for sure, I do not understand why you hesitate.

  19. urbangraffito says:

    I don’t think I’ll ever see (or hear) Prince in the same light after listening to the tracks on your muxtape: a fine mixture of ambient jazz, jazz fusion, and free jazz. To me, this is what KUR is all about: being open to new sounds, new ideas, with a dash of Frankness to satiate any FZ cognoscenti. Thanks, Balint!

  20. bernard says:

    Balint, compare it with old fanatic Hungarians who pretend that the Matav Headquarters or the Ligat Office Building in Budapest are not really architecture

    Thanks for the link, Balint. I’ll never listen to Prince quite the same again. An interesting mix of ambient jazz, jazz fusion, and free jazz. That’s what I like about KUR: new ideas, new sounds, with a dash of Frankness to make it go down easy. Speaking of Frankness, in my own errant pomposity, I have dared to assemble a mixed-bag of sorts of some of my favourite bootleg cuts, original mixes, acetates and extended versions.
