scene, culture, dances, and all that jazz, here is a
collection of articles from around the net, gathered
to enlighten your horizons and save you the trouble

written a swing or swing dancing article you'd like me to link to or create

A comprehensive guide to the new swing movement. In addition to the multitudes of interviews
with your favorite swing personalities (Royal Crown Revue,
Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Lavay Smith, Big Six, Flyin' Lindy
Hoppers, Sam Butera and more!), it is lavishly illustrated,
and packed with photos, informative directories, and lists
of recommended recordings, books, and films. Documenting
the first lifestyle change since punk, Swing! is the first
and only book available on this exciting new movement.
Featuring interviews with the cutting-edge musicians,
dancers, and visionaries that started the new retro renaissance,
it's a treasure trove of information, a book that no serious
swinger should be without.
