Taryn O’Flynn- Jazz History- Listening Review 3 Source Song: Dance of the Gremlins/Swingin’ the Blues Artist: Count Basie Musicians: Count Basie (piano), Freddie Green (guitar), Walter Page (bass), Jo Jones (drums), Buck Clayton, Harry Edison, and Snooky Young (trumpets), Eli Robinson, Buster Scott, Louis Taylor, Dicky Wells (trombones), Earle Warren (alto sax), Jack Washington, Caughey Roberts (alto & baritone saxes), Don Byas, Buddy Tate (tenor saxes). Composed by Count Basie. Recorded: Hollywood, CA, July 1943This song can be found on the internet at Review The drummer Jo Jones does a great job communicating with the band through use of his drums- both snare and bass. The bassist in this piece is responsible for the primary rhythmic and harmony sources. The harmony over all in this piece is undeniable and can be identified between the piano and the guitar. There is a laid back vibe to the song, but clear rhythmic pulse and dynamic variation off all of the instrumentalists.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
