Gunhild Carling's band from Sweden are excellent! They have played for dancers at Herrang, London Balboa festival etc. Also touring around the world playing jazz festivals, so what you get is really high quality.

Dawn is not afraid to tell it like she sees it. She was slamming the Seattle DJs after the Masters event for playing too much early jazz that doesn't (in her opinion) swing. Any idea which bands and periods she was referring to? She wasn't specific, but I got the impression she prefers 50s Basie ov...

If you're willing to pay up some money then there is a big collection with the history of Swedish jazz music. It's called "Svensk jazzhistoria" and is so far 10 volumes, ...

I met a few russians at the Herrang Dance Camp this year, and one of them (don't remember her name) showed a russian video at one of the evening meetings. When she introduced this and talked there it gave me the impression that there was no "swing jazz" in Russia at the time. There was big bands but...

If you get the good dancers da...

As might be expected it totally failed... :lol:
