August 18, 2021: Till the Well Runs Dry

Title spot this week goes to Miss T & The Mad Tubes (featuring Big Jay McNeely) – there are just a handful of YouTube videos that came up for them, but still some good ones, like this!

Also this week: Ella Fitzgerald and Muguette, back to back, along with Mat Najean Jazz Band, Hot Swing Sextet, Ultrafaux, Mamie Minch, Birch Pereira & the Gin Joints, and lots more. Enjoy!

May 26, 2021: Gender is a Masquerade

Cats & Dinosaurs make great swing music, and they’re also not afraid to include some serious social commentary in their songs, as the title of this week’s show can attest.

Check them out over on Bandcamp, and enjoy some more great music including some more Swedish swingers, Gentlemen & Gangsters, along with bands out of Turkey, Tel Aviv, Luthuania, France, and lots of other cool places!

Il faut que ├ža swing!

April 28, 2021: Almost Famous

My new music discovery this week was a Port Townsend band that is (probably) no longer together but really kicked, Famous Lucy. Listen in for a couple of their tracks, along with some great music including classics like Duke Ellington and Billie Holiday. I usually play newer versions of their tunes, but this week we go back to the originals!

March 10, 2021: Sunny with a Chance of Mixclouds

Alright, well it’s happened. I’m going to keep posting shows here, but with an embedded Mixcloud widget rather than uploading files directly to the site here and playing them through the built-in media player. I think it should continue to work just fine!?

Lots of new music to show off, and it’s almost 100% a Bandcamp (read: independent) artist show, which is the where I want to be, ultimately.

I want to very particularly give a shout out to Hey Mister Jesse and especially the new compilation album they just released. You can read all about it over on Yehoodi or get the compilation itself directly on Bandcamp. All proceeds from sale of the album will go to support the Black Lindy Hoppers Fund. Oh, and the dang thing has 41 AMAZING tracks on it. If you want one single album that has some of the best swing music on Bandcamp, this one is it.

Mixcloud player should be showing up just below here. Let me know how it works out for you in the comments, and feel free to go over to Mixcloud and follow my channel there too while you’re at it! Thanks and happy dancing!
