Hey Mr Jesse Show: April Podcast

It's a new month and that means a new episode of the podcast Hey Mr Jesse where the swing djs Jesse Miner and Manu Smith talks about swinging jazz and blues that matters to dancers (much like intention of this blog).

This time they have a great interview with bandleader Casey MacGill whose cd Jump was a big hit as a part of the swing music revival in the late 1990s. That's a classic album if you ask me, Jump was one of the first albums I reviewed.

We get to know about his musical background and what it was like to work in the Broadway show Swing. If you like Casey MacGill you should check out the cast recording from the Swing show. They also talk about his new band: The Casey MacGill Blue 4 Trio.

See the Hey Mr Jesse April show notes to get all the details about what is in the 72 minute show. Download the Hey Mr Jesse show (mp3, 50 MB).

In the countdown segment, 8 count swing, Jesse and Manu lists 8 kid-friendly fun swing songs.

Hey Mr Jesse just keeps getting better and better. I looking forward to the next episode.
