Vintage Jazz in Spanish?

I'm looking for a good sampling of 40s, 50s, and 60s Jazz in Spanish. I know Spain wasn't producing a lot of Jazz throughout those decades but there was obviously a lot of Cuban influence in American Jazz and I assume Latin American influence as well. Who were the Sarah Vaughans and Louis Primas who performed in Spanish, and more importantly where can I get my hands on their music?

Desert-dweller seeks fun in Crescent City

I'm in New Orleans the week of the 13th-20th and have very few plans for what to do during the day (by myself) or at night (with a friend). I'm looking for suggestions for places to go, preferably that we can get to by streetcar. Note: I've never spent this much time in a city with a big river before and have no idea what to do with that. [more inside]

Can't say exactly why I like it...

I really like the music in this Ibanez advertisement. Can you recommend similar music? Song/CD recommendations would be most helpful, but artist suggestions would not go unappreciated. And I guess it would help to know what genre(s) I should try listening to.

How do I be in a band?

I love music and over the past few years have taught myself to be pretty good as a ukulele player. I'd love to get involved with a band--old-time jazz, dixieland stuff--and really learn how to make music with others. But all I know is how to play by myself. I don't know how bands work in the slightest, nor how to find others who are better than me but willing to let me "play along." How do I get started getting started? Thanks!

Excellent blues bars in Philadelphia

I'm looking for an excellent jazz/blues/blues-rock bar in Philly. Grizzled old guys on their guitars, grizzled old patrons, bad lighting, laid-back bartenders and a relaxed atmosphere with a little bit of room to sway if you're feeling it. If you've ever been to the Cat's Eye Pub in Baltimore, something like that. [more inside]

I want the funk! And all that jazz.

I'm looking for funky jazz, with plenty of synth, an upbeat pace, and R&B influences, in the style of the mid 1980s to early 90s work of Chick Corea and Jeff Lorber. I've noticed this style tends to be copied in video game and movie soundtracks from that period, so recommendations for those types of music are welcome.

Looking for an album called 'Wings'

Do you remember the 'concept album' from the late 70s (?) called 'Wings'? Nothing to do with Paul McCartney, this was a 'crossover' production, mixing jazz and classical. The word 'wings' is so generic that Googling isn't helping me at all. If I just had the composer's name, I'd be able to hunt up a copy ... (I remember being wowed by the music back then, and would like to re-visit it.)

Jazz albums where the guitarist fills the usual role of the pianist

I'm looking for recommendations for jazz albums with a lineup similar to the one on Sonny Rollins's classic album The Bridge, which has tenor sax + guitar + bass + drums and that's it. (YouTube example.) I love how Jim Hall's guitar takes on the usual role of the piano since it's the only instrument in the ensemble that can play whole chords. [more inside]
