I'm not really a fan of Michael Buble... I can play any song of his... Not really a fan... yet you bought some of his music? It doesn't matter what I like. I just have to keep them dancing.

Check out the new album by The Blue Rhythm Band. Hard swinging big band music, and they are all still living! You can actually go dance to this band, live, in person. :) If you were at Camp Jitterbug, then you have already heard this band and I bet you have already bought yourself a copy. If not, no...
