I've heard of the Shanghai Shuffle before, but I think this is the first time I've heard it. It sounds great! Thanks for sharing.

Stan Kenton had a great sound, indeed! I love that arrangement.

Here is the Glenn Miller Orchestra with the classic I've Got a Gal in Kalamazoo—and a special treat at the end.

I came upon this today on YouTube. So much fun to watch!

Met someone from Kalamazoo today... And now the above song is in my head. Such a catchy tune!

Yes, once it gets in there, it won't get out. I was in this shape 4 or 5 days, ago. :)

Artie Shaw's band had the smoothest sound in the business, highlighted by Artie's liquid clarinet style. Here they are with Beguin the Beguine. :he:

That was really nice to listen to! It's nice to hear the old big band that's not trying to show off. It just sounds good without being ridiculously big. And the warm sound of that clarinet is very soothing! Just beautiful!
