Black Coffee: Careless Lovers


Do you ever wonder why swing music makes you want to dance? Could it be that infectious rhythm or could it be some else? Something completely different that makes you jitter and do strange moves. Like coffee? Black Coffee? Oh yes.

Check out this wonderful video with the band The Careless Lovers, a band made up of swing dancing musicians from the coffee loving city of Seattle.

The video is the vinner of The 2011 Swing/Jazz Dance Music Video Contest.

I'm particulary happy to spot two Uppsala dancers in the video: Emelie Decavita and Rebecka Decavita, who are currently staying in Seattle.

Another great version of Black Coffee is by the band Six Swingers.

What do you think of the video Black Coffee with the Careless Lovers? Please comment.
