Hey Mister Jesse March 2007 podcast

The March episode of the podcast Hey Mister Jesse where Jesse Miner and Manu Smith talks about swing music is now available. Great show as always.

This time they feature an interview with band leader George Gee of The Make Believe Ballroom Orchestra. His band is releasing a new cd later on this spring (sometime in April). In the show they play some not yet released songs and you can get even more songs from the coming album if you go to George Gee's MySpace page.

One of the songs on the new album is "All the cats join in" which was made popular in a animated cartoon where Benny Goodman played the song. Here is the video clip with the "All the cats join in" cartoon:

Read the show notes to get all the details and the links to more information about the songs och websites they talk about.

On the radio show Jesse and Manu had picked up the video clip with Count Basie and Ella Fitzgerald performing One O'clock Jump that I wrote about earlier. Thanks guys for reading this blog, it's really an honor for me.

I don't know how they produce the podcast but Jesse and Manu should do something about the echo you hear if you listen carefully. (That is the problem with listening, you start to hear things).

Today you can also listen on Yehoodi radio to Rob Moreland from Raleigh, NC, who is the guest swing dj for March. You can hear his music every Thursday through March.

Here is all my posts about Hey Mr Jesse.
