I've always rather liked "Comes Love," but none seemed just right for dancers.. Comes Love version by Billie Holiday in the Album "All Or Nothing At All" (Verve) is one of my all times favorite for dancing. I play it at nearly all late night sets I do. This album from 1955 is fantastic. The rhythm ...

I just had it yesterday night from Alan who was in Paris, and I love as well "Blues In Frankie's Flat" as it is much more relax than the other versions I have.
Splanky is as great as ever.

It is one of my favorites Satchmo CD. I play quite often 'Shadrak' and 'Ezekiel saw the wheel'.

Here in France, T'Ain't What You Do from Jimmy Lunceford is generally regarded as "The Shim Sham Song", although I personally hate to have such a categorization and try to explain to dancers that they could do partner dance on it as well. For a change, I often play Stompin' At the Savoy from George ...

Some of them are jewels. -Jazz&Humour / Saga Another french label called Saga (www.sagajazz.com) reissuing some old classics. Some of their CD are "t...

Maybe they choreographed to Woodside at it's tempo (230?) and then actually performed it at a specified tempo without the music..?
