So first, thanks for posting a good article about a good jazz band I've never heard of - second, thanks for posting about jazz, period.
At some point I think jazz will make a resurgence, it's just going to take....a while.
Also, stereogum.com is still awesome.
This is...this is like a "10 Worst External Sound Cards" list. Over half of these no one in music production has ever even heard of.

Yeah this is...a really weird post. Who on earth does the original poster think they'll get to actually read the article?
From a video stand point they shot the same guy in about 10 different places. They used stop motion for the visual effects, but they just recorded the sound naturally to exemplify the difference a room makes in terms of reverb.
Reverb is basically how music echos in a natural setting.
Ever wondered why jazz clubs always have red or black velvet curtains on the wallls? No reverb.
If you watch the video again check out the difference in sound between the underground cellar and the church.
Basically reverb is how sound bounces off certain materials (large marble church vs small wooden wine cellar) and how big the room is - bigger means longer time to echo, but it also sounds bigger. Smaller means a more dead sound.
In the 50s doo wop groups always recorded in bathrooms or echo rooms (specifically made for sound in studios - Columbia is the best know for this).
You can reproduce it digitally, but it never sounds as good as the real thing.

Never thought about Vimeo as a place for good music. This is much better than expected. Maybe the staff at Vimeo really has some taste.
Just realized this is on a loop...and it's been over for about an hour.
Blech. It's looks cold, rainy, and...kinda sparse in terms of the number of people.
Kinda weird to upvote a story about someone's death, but I'm doing it for the video, not Charlie's death.
Here's the official announcement
damn dude, shouldn't i have posted this?
