I discover an 11-album set of jazz, swing, and blues from Smithsonian Folkways in the Evergreen Library’s vinyl collection, and play lots of tracks from those records throughout the show, mixed in with some other great tunes.
It’s two hours of big band swing for the lindy-hoppers (and other swing dancers) in my life. I went a little nuts finding some new stuff, too. Enjoy!
A little blues and boogie-woogie from the LP collection and just a smattering of holiday music throughout. This ain’t no holiday special!
Sorry, the audio for this show is lost in the internet ether.
Two full hours of holiday swing tunes. My goal was to play songs you’re not already tired of hearing that might get you dancing up a winter storm. As a result, we’ve got some great original holiday tunes along with plenty of standards in versions you won’t hear when you powerwalk through the local mall. Happy holidays!
A quick set of Christmas tunes to get you in the mood – both for the season and for next week’s full two-hour Christmas extravaganza – and then some great jazz, blues, and swing to fill out the show.
