Re: mosaic sets

To say I'm looking forward to this one is probably the understatement of the year.

Louis Armstrong Quote

I'm trying to track down a soundbyte of Louis Armstrong's wonderful "definition" of swing: Ah, swing, well, we used to call it syncopation — then they called it ragtime, then blues — then jazz.

It's Back Bay Shuffle. Ella Fitzgerald and her Famous Orchestra (you can hear her voice calling out a lot through the track)

I think it's from Live At The Savoy 1939-40 (again)
