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
Really, really, great.... *Big Balls in Cowtown*... is that another Texas-ism, like: *Big Hat no Cattle*? LOL
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
I like that Jordan Louis! Good stuff. Of course Bill Wills. Then there is always Asleep at the Wheel.I'm getting back to my rock-n-roll for now.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CF_kUB_mdmA
