I have no superlatives left to describe the podcast "Hey, Mr Jesse" where Jesse Miner and Manu Swith talks about swing music, so I'll just say: Check it out!
Download the December edition. [42 MB, mp3]
This episode concludes the second year of monthly podcasts. Since it's December and holiday season they feature some swinging Christmas songs. One album they mention is Diana Krall's Christmas Songs. That cd has been on my wish list for quite some time. Another good Christmas album is Yule B Swingin.
Jesse & Manu also listed holiday swing songs last year in Hey Mr Jesse #12. Download.
They feature some of my comments about previous podcasts. They play Benny's Bugle from the band 4beat6 which they describe as
"Man! Smokin'! ... Foot stompin' music ... I just wanna dance."I couldn't agree more. They also play a clip of Splanky performed by Count Basie at Montreux Jazz Festival 1977. Thank you guys for letting me be a part of the show.
There is so much more, see all the details in the show notes for Hey Mr Jesse #24.
I now realize that I didn't announce the November 2007 edition of Hey Mr Jesse. So if you missed it, download Hey Mr Jesse #23. Then you'll have two hours of swinging jazz music tips to enjoy!
What do you think of Hey Mr Jesse December edition? Tell me.
