With a late-night, Latin-jazz groove and a vocal reminscent of a young Leon Redbone, Tommy Halloran's Guerrilla Swing comes into its own on the new track "My Favorite Sin."
Fans of acoustic swing, a la Dan Hicks or the Asylum Street Spankers, will find kindred spirits in the Appleseed Collective and its new, wry yet melancholy "The Inability to Feel."
Tommy Halloran's Guerrilla Swing Quartet were the featured artists at the July 27, 2013 edition of KDHX's Harvest Sessions.
The Brewbadours combine a washboard, guitar and upright bass to mix classic songs from the recent and not so recent past along with original material together.
Thursdays at the Intersection brought Miss Jubilee and the Humdingers to Strauss Park this week.
Miss Jubilee and the Humdingers set up for an uptempo version of Ethel Waters's 1925 original that conjured an eclectic mix of hot jazz and swing.
From dress to affect, Miss Jubilee exudes the good-old-American, bluesy, swing jazz that she and her band the Humdingers work to renew in St. Louis.
"Across the Imaginary Divide" is another foray for Béla Fleck into jazz, coupling with a pianist much as he has done with Chick Corea in their live shows and on their CD "The Enchantment" (2007). The trio is filled out by Rodney Jordan on bass and Jason Marsalis on drums.

Just because Austin vocalist Elizabeth McQueen has been a part of Texas swing institution Asleep at the Wheel since 2005 doesn't mean she's just just a singing cowgirl.
