This thread is too much fun to let die. This group is not exactly my style. But these guys have too much fun to not appreciate. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kVpz9k5myno&feature=fvst
Oh, yes! Brian Setzer rocks! Maybe he is single-handedly keeping big-band accompaniment alive...Rockabilly/swing is so much fun -- and pretty easy to play. Its got all the fundamentals of 20th century popular dance music... blues, jazz, country twang, swagger. What is not to like?Help! I like Texas Swing, but do not know the names of any of the bands... anyone?
Here is one for you guys. They are fantastic. Merger of Texas swing and Django and Grappelli.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5YUI15MuoRY&feature=relatedhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utRRkXDH4Ro&feature=relatedhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=suh2aHR_8gs&feature=related
I guess Bill Willis and the Texas Playboys are the pivotal band in Texas swinghttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hxzxH6wIPCY&feature=relatedHow about Louis Jordan and his Tympany Five.... this guys Mojo was working!! Some say he embodied rock n roll before it had a name:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJVH1bYbS0I&feature=related
