I had been to a Martini Bar (swanky place) in Seattle to watch my friend's jazz band on Sundays. They have a really great DJ who mixes Jazz records (from Big Ban...

ahhhh... but what if you buy "Count Basie Swings and Joe Williams Sings" on vinyl? a real paradox.

I downloaded Shake 'em up! a while back. I haven't gone through it completely, but I've played "I wish I could Shimmy like my sister Kate" and it went over well.

I also love "Blues Improvisation" off of Up A Lazy River
