January 20, 2021: A Few of My Favorite Things

Happy Inauguration Day! I find myself filled with hope and optimism, almost despite myself given the past four years. I recognize that there are no magic bullets — politics in our country has a long way to go before I’d call the system ‘healthy,’ but I’m hoping this is a step in the right direction.

As for the event itself, Amanda Gorman was AMAZING.

In any case, this week’s show highlights things that make me happy.

Things like musicals (Guys & Dolls, My Fair Lady) and Harry Connick Jr. and Emily Cole and YouTube videos for Baby Can Dance and God Moves On The Water and swing music out of France and Israel and Turkey and all the other fabulous places where, as bad as things might get, people remember to swing!

So here are a few things that make me happy, and I hope they make you happy too!

January 6, 2021: Last Ones Out, Turn off the Lights

A couple holiday tunes in here, or maybe just holiday-adjacent, but mostly just some nice swing, jazz, and blues. Perhaps more of the second two than usual (though the barriers are a bit blurry) – I really like that Badger Cam, though, which is definitely (probably) proper jazz.

Anyway, hope 2021 is treating you well so far, and that you enjoy the tunes!

October 21, 2020: The New Way is a Blue Way

Trying out some new things on the technology side. Let me know if you hear a difference!

Also continuing to post the playlist down below. The highlighted track marks the one-hour (or halfway) mark, more or less!

January 29, 2020: Easy Does It

We’re calming things down a bit after last week’s electroswing showcase, grinding down into the floor with some laid back swing and blues tunes featuring artists from Spain, France, and around the world.

January 1, 2020: Swing Into the New Year

Some great music to swing us into the new year. I hope that 2020 treats you well and that, if you made any resolutions, they involve more dancing and more great music.

My own resolution involves making more music and other kinds of art, and you can follow those efforts, if you want, over here.
