Today was Jazz History final project day, so I spent the afternoon transcribing three solos: Miles Davis on "All Blues" and "Freddie Freeloader", and Wynton Marsalis on "Well You Needn't" with Herbie Hancock. Given the choice between transcriptions, a standard paper, and an interview with a jazz legend, I opted for the easy way out. Transcribing is fun when you've got a good recording. However, transcribing bebop is only fun when you can slow the recording down.

I was going to post my list of uneducated Oscar guesses today, but I'm out of time and the list is incomplete. I'll try to post it tomorrow before the telecast. I'm not a big fan of the ceremony itself -- I usually just read the winners list the morning after. The whole idea of the film industry giving itself awards is pretty absurd -- it'd be like all the composition majors here getting together and passing out Prix de Romes within the group.
