    I Love to Listen.

    When I was little, the adults at my Grams used to listen to Big Band music. I always liked listening to it and hearing about this band and that trumpet player.  So naturally as I grew older I continued to listen to it. Every now and then I can find it on the radio, on some...

    Big Band Baking ;)

    I love Big Band/Swing music. Glenn Miller is my favorite. When I was little my mom used to play Chattanooga Choo-Choo every time she baked cookies. So now I can't bake unless I've got some Big Band playing, it makes baking a lot more fun :)

    Swing It, Baby!

    I don't know why I dig big band swing. When I was living in Minneapolis some years ago I used to tune into an AM radio station that played loads of great old swing, crooner, jazz singer stuff. I think it was KLBB, before they got bought and ruined. Anyway, I developed a...

    Digging Through My Music

    It's not quite Big band. I got a bit of shock today. So. while I was sniffling. ( rarely just all out cry) I went looking through my music. I figure I'll rip some of these onto a cd and go up to my cousin's house. If he's not feeling too bad maybe I can actually get him on his...

    I Don't Know If It Counts Or Not....

    I somewhat doubt it counts, but I really liked music from the swing revival back in the 90s. Though now and again I find myself listening to a big band station of the original stuff online. :)

    I Like It

    I could care less for jazz, but I really like big band swing music.  I mean, I have fun playin' my saxophone in band, even though we play concert "crap", but when I play at home or for people, I stick with the big band stuff.  I can't pinpoint an exact reason...
