All My Vinyl/ Music Listening Journal: Day 22/ 366: Wednesday January 23, 2020.

  • BENNY GOODMAN: KEN BURNS JAZZ: 2000: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: IPOD: It’s hard to believe it’s been twenty years since the Ken Burns Jazz documentary came out- I enjoyed the series- its been maybe 5 years since I’ve watched it- time for another viewing- and I also enjoyed the music that was released of major jazz musicians that came out with it. Benny Goodman part of the music of my grandparents generation- a name I had heard often but whose music I wasn’t all that acquainted with prior to the series.
  • Note- I really need to get back with my music listening- I’ve been doing other things- reading- watching television, watching a lot of Civil War material on the internet- I’ve mostly been listening to music while I walk. I am going to be away this weekend-when I get back- back to more music.

  1. I hear you on the music listening. Since I stopped the daily coloring I’m not taking time for it. I did listen to The Zombies’ Odessey & Oracle (all except the last 4 songs) the other night. Quite a mix. Also, speaking of Ken Burns, I have put in to borrow the rest of the Country Music discs. Have fun on your weekend way!

    • I’ve missed your coloring- how about one a week?…. It is easy to get lazy- I have to get away from the television- it is so easy to just sit in front of it and watch- doesn’t take much effort. Need to be doing more constructive things- I view listening to music as more constructive… and reading also. Its not like I am watching anything worthwhile.

    • As long as I remember I’ve been into history- and am into studying/ reading about the Civil War in particular.visiting Civil War battlefields- always more to learn about it.

  2. Ah……
    I loved history in school when it involved personal lives and stories. I couldn’t memorized dates or names. But if facts were woven into a tale of sorts, I had no trouble….fascinating stuff.

  3. But I don’t think people thought of their lives as hard. It was just what it was. Looking back from the perspective of modern conveniences and better food and longer lives, their lives seemed harder in retrospect….

    • Good point. I doubt people complained as we do today or at least not as much- when they looked around and saw most of the people they knew- in the same situation- life was just hard- the way it was.
