Yea, Julius, I can certainly back you up on That, if it wasn't for Eddie Reed I would struggle dancing fast and real slow...julius wrote:I don't DJ, but my theme song is definitely Eddie Reed's version of Jazznocracy.
Why? Because it's the first song I ever danced to where I felt like I was really, and I mean, REALLY, doing Lindy Hop. Like, so in the moment that even trainwrecking was being a golden god.
(Also, Eddie Reed was playing the very first night I ever saw Lindy Hop. He didn't play Jazznocracy as it was the quintet, but it was a life-changing night for me.)
Like the bands of the swing era he played what he liked to play, and the dancers just enjoyed dancing, regardless of tempo....
once again, we will be witnessing is greatness at the Lindy summit....july 5th....I can;t wait!!!!!!!!!
