"Retro Swing" Hot Shots:
The "new" craze that's shaking the nation's youth into swinging again.
Just about any Up tempo Louis Jordan tune will work on this crowd of dancers.
Just drop in a slow one now and then (about every fifth song) to let the 'ol ticker return to a managable pace.
Many new bands are picking up on this money making group of dancers who come out in droves 500+.

The kids (and aging hipsters) are avoiding becoming their parents by becoming their grandparents
( I love that line). Anyway, here's a half dozen of the tunes I played at Midsummer Night Swing at Lincoln Center.
