I want to expose people (especially young people) to all kinds of music. I chose the 20th century because it produced an eclectic taste of many styles of music. At the end of most of my short descriptions it will say, check out their music. I can only scratch the surface of all the great music, you must explore for yourself. Luckily, you have 21st century technology to help you. Enjoy the adventure. Please comment, make requests, or ask questions.

Swing, Swing, Swing
My favorite style of music, Big Band Jazz. This number was written by Louis Prima in 1935 and is called, "Swing, Swing, Swing." This is Benny Goodman with Gene Krupa on drums. You can find thousands of recordings of this number by different bands with different arrangements. I like this short version, or any version done by Benny Goodman and Gene Krupa.
