Hey, do any of you have / know of a version of "Minor Swing" done by Count Basie? Does this even exist, or was it only done by Django Reinhardt?

I bought some Taiyo Yuden CD's this weekend, made by Fuji. You can definitely see a difference in quality between the Made in Taiwan CDs and the Made in Japan CDs. The Taiwanese cds looked warped in areas and seemed to have a streak starting from the outside edge, going inwards to the middle. The Ja...

I don't agree with your view that Boogie Woogie satisfies Lindy Hoppers. Yup, I agree, not all of it is. When I meant 'classic', I guess I was referring to the stuff played in the late 30's and 40's, which was a transition time for many big band artists into other forms of jazz. From the collection...

I actually dance a lot of Boogie Woogie in Utah. We even taught a lesson down in Arizona at the Swing Jam. I love boogie woogie music. Whoah! no way! I did some searching for boogie woogie in NA, but all I found were workshops taught on it back in '99 from import instructors. A talented boogie danc...

Boogie Woogie music

Some songs and artists just make you wanna dance triple-steps. Boogie Woogie is popular in Europe, but not so much in North America.

I know. I have a few versions of Woodchopers Ball. I just think none of them fits really well. I ended up cutting one of it myself to make it fit the time and the moves. Sounds OK but if someone can tell me which recording Ryan used to choreograph it that would help too. I found a version the other...

I've been guilty of this action from time to time as have many others, so let's just all stop. I can appreciate the feeling of needing to "ca...
