55:28 Feedback
- Henrik Eriksson (Uppsala, Sweden) recommends Terry Blaine's With Thee I Swing, Helen Hume's Swingin' with Humes, and a pretty decent 4 cd compilation set called Western Swing & Country Jazz. Don't forget to regularly read Henrik's great blog Swing, Jazz and Blues - Dance To The Music, especially his recent post about how you can support his blog.
- Chris Nikl (Vermont) recommends a French band named Smokey Joe Combo. Watch their video of "Hit That Jive Jack" featuring Anne-Helene & Bernard and their dance troupe "Tagada Swing Swing", and download the mp3 from Smokey Joe Combo's myspace page.
- Marc D'Olimpio (France) reminds us about Oscar Peterson's great album Oscar Peterson Plays Count Basie (available from AmazonMp3 and iTunes).
