(Finkel?! Well, okay, I can get with the program, but give me a little time Mike!) Al Hirt was a trumpet player, probably best remembered for his recording of "Java" (you've heard it, trust me) and was one of the few instrumentalists popular during the time of the Beatles and all those guys. Thanks very much Mike--I understand I may be working with you (Mike? Mike? Are you still there?? Quick, somebody call a doctor!) All seriousness aside, take care and have a good week! Michael

Bapsie!
This joint is so small,the mice are hunchbacked! I have a feeling that's not Nijinski featured in that cartoon. Thanks again Lyn--I think of you often when I sing. (Have not found that mic yet, but I just remembered a new, rarely visited part of this place that I think I may find it in!) You take good care now, xox Mish

Get a kick
Awesome stuff Michael! I remember this on an old tv advert in the UK, of all places. Great tune and of course the usual impeccable MJK delivery. Love that bounce!

And for your information (and the rest of the kit kat club regulars), I wash regularly. Soap and everything. Sometimes wire wool and dettol if it's particularly bad...!

As usual, you are too generous--thanks again! Oh this song will probably live on another 3,802 years; I'm not surprised you've heard it used in an advert (working in an ad agency myself, I know they like using these older melodies because the royalties are next to nothing or nothing and the music itself resonates with people's memories--they are the kind of songs people may not remember the title of, but remember the melody!) You take care now and great hearing from you! Best to dad by the way! Michael

PS
I'm relieved to know you take care of those particulars. My understanding with the owner of Club KitKat is that every Saturday night, they often take all the regulars out back, hang them on the wall, and then hose them down real good. This cleaning process seems to hold pretty well until the next Saturday, but when the air conditioning is out they have to close up.

Toe tappin good time. I always liked this song. Your version adds a "live" element that adds a little more pizazz to the number.

I get a Kick
oh yeah - this doesn't sound like any wheezing i've ever heard before MJK! i saw your forum request re: mix feedback - it sounds so good to my ears, and i'm probably also not the best person to ask since mixing vocals is just not anything i've ever done! have i mentioned lately that i LOVE your voice??

Thatt sounds good enough for me Karen!
Yanno, the only two things I do is sing and play the piano and I must say (as you know about the later), mixing for voice and piano involves superior learning that only visitors to the Plant Mongo take away with them--it's that darned complicated! I thank you so very much for the kind endorsement and just for taking the time out to listen to this thing. You take care now and hope your week is off to a zesty start! Michael

Hey Dave
Thanks for listening and I'm pleased you liked this song (Cole Porter may not be pleased with how I did it, but I know he'd be pleased that you enjoyed his song). Thanks again and thanks also for the feedback on this deal. You take care now! Michael

Hey Michael
saw your forum post. great singing as always. as for the mix, the vocals are coming out from the right side of my cans more than the left. I dont know if thats how you wanted it. but when listening to speaker monitors, this fact is hardly noticeable. :) hope this helps

I'm
Hearing this tune a lot lately.....
Yeah your in my right ear more than the left but that's cool. When old lefty gets jealous I just flip these suckers around.
Seriously, I like the balance. It has a nice feel.
I usually forget to focus on your mixing skills as I'm wowed by the vox. But now I'm zoning in I'm impressed. I guess were all a little guilty of overlooking this part of your songs but I'm nearly as impressed with your mixing as I am with your pipes!
michaeljayklein said 2865 days ago (April 19th, 2011)
Ted
Thanks for breaking your Routine #42 to come to my rescue! As I mentioned to Mannix above, I did adjust the fields a bit (I can't remember if it was just the vocal or the whole mess, so you can join Mr. M in having much aural acuity!) I think my own criticism with this would be not bringing up the treble a bit as my high notes sound rather closed at time, but I'm still working out some kinks lately. Thanks very much! Hope your week is going fashionably well Ted ol' boy! Michael

Yanno, your picture looks just swell on your profile page, but honestly Impsie, I have to admit, when it's all squished up like that, it kind of looks like you are being attacked by two green lobsters on either side or something. Thanks for filling me in on that--I was quite alarmed! M

I Get a Kick
Nice and no cover charge or smoke. I saw Al Hirt live back in the 60's. He put on a great show. He had a clarinetist named Peepwee Spitalera. He did his hit Java I'm quite sure. Cool cover keep them coming.

Hi Jerry
Yeah, I'm sort of old enough to remember Al Hirt--he really did a LOT to make the trumpet a very popular instrument in the days when most kids wanted to play guitar or drums. He was always a favorite wherever he appeared, and that's really great that you saw him in person! Thanks again--and take good care now, Michael

Hey, I might screw up, but I always do it with confidence! I don't know why, but I find quite a few Porter songs a bit hard to do (I think he wrote in a way to torture singers with just average lung capacity for one thing!) Always a pleasure to hear from a fine musician like yourself--thanks again my friend! Michael

You are too kind--this song has always given me fits and starts and I see lots of room for improvement on this one too, but I'm getting there (eventually!) Cole Porter is so difficult sometimes, let me tell you! Appreciated hearing from you and thanks too for the commendable words on the accompaniment on this. Take good care now, Michael
