Egads! Neo-what?

Hahaha... Sorry, just had to poke fun with the anti-neo-swing snobbery... I would book Jonathan Stout and His campus Five... they're amazing! Also, Mora's Modern Rhythmists does the most accurate job of recreating styles of yesteryear... Stompy Jones if you want something jump bluesy ( and badass to...

My favorite has to be from the Wiyos, though.. a group out of NYC that plays a swingin' jug band version of it.. you can find them on CDbaby. 24 Robbers - Fats Waller - ever since I saw the awesome...

Well - speaking only for myself, I don't like it either (though 'hate' is a bit strong) - it's just not a track that inspires me.

I'm pretty certain that it's actually the session you mentioned first, Brian: Duke Ellington - 08/03/37 NYC Studio Recording I wonder which version you're speaking o...
