I'm new here. It seems there's a lot of stuff at this forum. I will be playing my best Rythm & Blues at Munich Lindy Exchange this week. Any of you will be there?.

I won't, but would be curious to see a playlist after the event. (Or feel free to just post some favourites.)
There was a fairly recent thread about soul and r&b, so you can add to that.

Well: I've to see what the previous DJ's play. I guess they will base their sessions on Big Bands Swing; that's why I've choosen R&B.
If R&B matches, I will play my loved girls:
Big Mamma Thornton
Blue Lu Barker
Ella Mae Morse
Some male voices:
More modern music:
And perhaps some swing great hits if I see it's required: recurse to Benny Goodman, Count basy, Duke, Tommy Dorsey....
This will be my base. I will come back with the playlist.
Thanks for the suggest: I'm anxious to explore this forum and to contribute with some things.

A little bit late, but this was (more than less) my session.
Instead of travelling with my laptop, I played with CD's, so don't remember exactly.
The first inconvenience came when when Doc Scalon Cool cats played before me, the theme I was going to start with: "The Darktown Struters Ball".
The second inconvenience, when they told me at the place, that they had to open the windows for 5 minutes, and the music of my beginning should sound very low.
So, instead o f introducing my session with an increasing song (DTSB by Alberta Hunter), I had to choose two very low themes:
"Comes Love", by Billie Hollyday.
"Singing the blues till my Daddy come home", by Jennie Lobel.
Then I was ready to turn up the volume and start to shake the dancefloor:
"On revival day" by Lavern Baker.
Allways... allways! I play a song by lavern, inmediately I have to play another one by Ruth Brown:
"Mamma, he treats your daugther mean".
"Tweedle Dee" by Georgia Gibbs.
"I'm gonna be a wheel someday", by Bobby Mitchell
"Jelly Belly Nellie", Larry Williams.
Third inconvenience: a ver sympathic lady's Birthday, and the corresponding ask for a Jam. Between my CD's there was no any "happy birthday song". So I choose "Personality", by Lloyd Price.
My first 30 minuts set was going to end, so two sure hits:
"Get on the right track baby", Ry Charles.
"Hallelujah I love her so", by James Hunter.
Many people, ioncluding the musicians asked me about James Hunter.
After another set of the wonderfull Doc Scanlon Cool Cats, I opened with Elvis: "Trouble".
Another theme which Elvis made famous: "Hound Dog", played by Big Mamma Thornton.
"Here's a little girle from Jackxonville", Blue Lu Barker.
"Heart full of Hope" - Ella Mae Morse.
I decided to repeat some of the singers from the first set:
"Jim Daddy" - Lavern Baker
"Teardrops from my eyes", Ruth Brown
"Heartbreaker" - Ry Charles
I moved again to more RnR sound with:
"Truckin'" - Sid Phillips
And one song I allways afraid to play, because it souns so simple... but is used to be a success:
"Return to sender", by Rocky Sharpe.
I closed with
"My babe", Willie Dixon,
"8, 9 and 10", Slam Stewart
"I wish I knew..." - Nina Simone
And that was all. Hope you like.
