Episode 3 – “New Swing”
Hosted and Produced by J. Scott Fugate, “The Jazz Evangelist”
As always, it’s absolutely free, completely legal, recorded in rich CD quality, fun for the whole family, and available to listen to right here, right now:
This episode of Swing takes us into the 21st century with some recent Big Band music brought to you by some of the best in the business. You’ll hear from the latest incarnation of The Gene Krupa Orchestra, as well as songs swung and sung by Ann Hampton Callaway, Deborah Brown, Patti Austin and The Manhattan Transfer. You’ll also hear from the likes of Quincy Jones along with Ray Charles & Stevie Wonder . . . and even some Michael Jackson music given the swing treatment by Paul Anka. The amazing Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band weighs in, as do heavy weights with the Dizzy Gillespie All-Star Big Band and much more.
Swing never dies – it just gets clearer when they record it in stereo. Enjoy the ride!
