The Swing Shift

Music

With Mario Del Castillo

Music from early Swing Big Band Jazz and sometimes contemporary artists who play that genre. I like to delve into early Swing singers, Orchestras, and Big Bands from the very beginning in the 1920's. I call it my Happy music because it's so upbeat and the lyrics are often light-hearted if now down right silly. I love the era, the music, and the classic movies that were produced around that time.
