Re: What are you Trying to Say?

Just getting it in under the wire, aren't you? :) A source for that first song would be helpful. Off hand, I don't recognize the lyrics. It reminds me a lot of Tuxedo Junction in feel, but I didn't sit down to see whether the chords match. The vocalist has listened to Dizzy Gillespie and Joe Carroll...

Re: Remy & Alice - Seoul Lindyfest 2018

Editorial comments about the practice of speeding up recordings for performances aside, it's the 1945 V-Disc recording, indeed sped up some.

Re: Songs with whistling

For the Lindy Hop Heaven CD, send Jesse (JesseMiner) a PM, and I think he can get you in touch with Peter Davis. As for whistling: Brother Bones' "Sweet Georgia Brown" is a classic. Do the short riffs in Louis Prima's recording of "Whistle Stop" count? That was a super popular tune in the early 2000...

Re: Copyright issues

I suggest contacting Jeff Kaufman, the producer of that Chick Webb documentary that was completed a few years ago and has still only been shown, like, twice. (I'm not annoyed.)

Happy birthday, Ella!

Ella Fitzgerald would have turned 101 today.

(I wonder whether thread titles are unicode-safe?)

Edit: No, they're not. What about message bodies, though?

Sorry, I don't recognize it. :(

That MC waffles on for a full minute before the music starts. For future reference, you can make people's lives easier by including a timestamp in your YouTube URLs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IVdeh09OTBU&t=0m51s

Re: Song from a Instagram video

NGNGNGNNNNgggnngngnngnfff.... I am humming along marvelously, but I can't place it. I think it's a thing Basie once recorded, too, or at least strongly reminiscent of a Basie thing, but that's not tremendously helpful, is it? Edit: I take it back. Now I'm just hearing a bit from Lunceford's "For Dan...

[Answered] Duck Trot, Naomi and Her Handsome Devils

The song is "Duck Trot". The Cab Calloway original is slower and...better.

Band looks like Naomi (Uyama) and Her Handsome Devils.

Re: Suggestion for swing chinese song for coming Chinese New

The only two tracks I have with lyrics in Chinese, both in a mix of Mandarin and English, are two versions of "I Want You to Be My Baby" (translated as "我要你的爱"/"Wo yao ni de ai"/"I want your love"): one is the Grace Chang 1957 recording, the other is a 2000 cover with rather more questionable pronun...
