Question by ñåÐå: How can I politely tell my friend that she is a hoe?
She seems to be in denial about her slutiness. I don’t want to hurt her feelings b/c I might need to borrow some money from her later

Can Someone tell me all they know about Charles Melvin (Cootie Williams)?

Sunday, December 2nd, 2012

Question by disconnect1: Can Someone tell me all they know about Charles Melvin (Cootie Williams)?
Where when and with whom was his musical training/education? Who was his key influence, who was it who influenced him? What were some of the key elements that made this person an innovator of jazz? Tell me about when he got his break or a great story about him!

Best answer:

Answer by LAlawMedMBA
Cootie Williams’ earliest influence was his musical mother, who encouraged him to take up the tuba and play in the school band. When his mother died, his father hired a local trumpet teacher, Charles Lipskin, a major influence who once played with New Orleans Excelsior Jazz Band.

At the age of fourteen, Williams spent a summer in the family band of Willis Handy Young, playing alongside the great tenor saxophonist Lester Young. By sixteen, he had played in numerous bands around his native Mobile, Alabama, and was constantly exposed to New Orleans bands in town for one-nighter’s, particularly trumpeter Kid Punch and clarinetist Edmund Hall. He went with Hall to Jacksonville, Florida, and the two ended up with Alonzo Ross, leader of a Florida territory band called the Ross Deluxe Syncopators that played at the Rosemount Ballroom. There he saw a lot of Louis Armstrong, who was a second major influence.

In 1928, Williams traveled by steamship from Savannah, Georgia to New York City. He was soon working with two of Harlem’s most popular bandleaders: pianist Fletcher Henderson and drummer Charlie “Chick” Webb. Playing for both of these extraordinary bands put him at the cutting edge of jazz, and was his “big break.”

His second major career advancement occurred in 1929, when he replaced Bubber Miley in the Duke Ellington Orchestra. He matured there through the 1930s, leading sessions with Lionel Hampton and Billie Holiday.

When he performed as a featured guest at Benny Goodman’s Carnegie Hall Concert in 1938, he was so impressed by Goodman that he jumped to Goodman’s band on November 6, 1940. After a year with Benny, Williams formed his own band. The Cootie Williams Band featured players such as pianist Bud Powell, tenorman Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis, alto saxophonist/singer Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson, and the alto king, Charlie Parker. The band peaked during World War II, traveling from coast to coast, and having several hits, including “Round Midnight,” which Williams co-authored with Thelonious Monk. From 1948 to 1955, the Cootie Williams Sextet had a steady gig at the Savoy Ballroom in Harlem, but his popularity waned. In 1962, he rejoined Benny Goodman’s Band briefly, then returned to the Duke Ellington Orchestra, where he stayed until 1978, well past Ellington’s 1974 death.

Williams’ key innovative elements were: (1) His renowned deep driving sound, a growling “jungle” trumpet playing style (in the tradition of Bubber Miley and trombonist Joe “Tricky Sam” Nanton); (2) his use of the plunger mute, which reputedly inspired Wynton Marsalis; (3) his pivotal recording, “Concerto for Cootie,” (also known as “Do Nothing Until You Hear From Me”), because of its revelation of diverse styles and moods, from steamy Harmon mute to growling plunger to brassy cascading high notes; (4) his merging of the New Orleans Dixieland sound into Big Band Swing and beyond; and (5) early fusion of jazz with R&B in a 1948 hit called “Gator,” which owed much of its success to the rackety tenor sax of sideman Willis Jackson.

Great Story #1: Williams received hundreds of hate mail letters after jumping to Goodman’s band. While he had the Duke’s blessing to cash in on his fame, many jazz enthusiasts viewed his decision as little less than treason. The controversy even inspired bandleader and composer Raymond Scott to write a hit tune, “When Cootie Left The Duke.”

Great Story #2: His experience with the volatile Bird (Charlie Parker) was such a culture shock that Williams, a lifelong teetotaler, began drinking.

How does one tell what gauge of Marklin one has?

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

Question by ccoerhs: How does one tell what gauge of Marklin one has?
how do you tell what gauge model railroad is?

Best answer:

Answer by Will See
Gauge is the distance between the rails, so just measure the inside distance. You probably mean what Scale (reduction from the real thing) you have. I’m using US information because that’s what I’m most familiar with. Other countries had similar situations even if measurements differed.

G Gauge (various scale reductions run on this track) Marklin uses 1/32 — gauge 45 mm
O 1/48 1/4″ = 1 foot — gauge 32 mm
HO 1/87 3.5 mm = 1 foot — gauge 16.5 mm
N 1/160 — gauge 9 mm
Z 1/220

This distinction between scale and gauge is important because not all real trains were built to the same gauge. In the US after about 1870 almost all railroads were built to standard gauge (4 feet, 8 1/2 inches) but some were wider (the Erie was 6 feet), some narrower. Most narrow gauge railroads were 3 foot gauge, some (mainly in New England) were 2 foot gauge. Some industrial railroads were even narrower.

Assuming your models are standard gague, if you measure the gauge it will tell you what scale they are (see the list above).

Marklin has made many scales of trains, but currently they’re making only HO, Z, and G.

So measure the track, and you’ll probably know what scale you have.

How can I tell if my O-gauge Lionel train set is pre-war or post-war?

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Question by plainswalker: How can I tell if my O-gauge Lionel train set is pre-war or post-war?
I believe it is pre-war, because my father bought it used in 1947. I have an engine, coal car, 2 passenger cars, and a caboose. The passenger cars have lights inside and as I recall, you can do something to get the engine to puff smoke out of the stack. Thanks for your help!

Could someone tell me how to operate a whistle tender on a Lionel train 1955?

Monday, March 26th, 2012

Question by Inquisitive One: Could someone tell me how to operate a whistle tender on a Lionel train 1955?
The engine light and smoke work fine, but when I hit the whistle button the train only speeds up but does not whistle. This is an “O” scale train. Thanks.

Answer by Steven D
Sometimes you have to have the train sitting still for the whistle to work. Here’s a link to Lionel for more information:http://www.lionel.com/

How do you tell if a Lionel train engine uses smoke pellets or smoke liquid?

Saturday, March 17th, 2012

Question by Joe D: How do you tell if a Lionel train engine uses smoke pellets or smoke liquid?
I have a 2-4-2 Scout number 236 I believe is from 1961. It looks identical to the Scout number 242 made in 1962. How do I tell if it is capable of making smok and what method it uses. I can’t find this model listed anywhere. Thanks.

Best answer:

Answer by JIM BAKER
If the heat unit in the smokestack is a dimpled light bulb, I would use smoke pellets.
The older liquid smoke units had a wire coil as seen down the stack.

This is all from memory, but I could be mistaken.
