With this post I'm gonna start a series to introduce my favorite Swing songs to you.
To feature a Song of the Week is actually not my invention, there was at least one blog with a similar column, but unfortunately after a short while they stopped posting.
I like the idea and since I'm DJ'ing quite a lot, you might be interested!
All The Cats Join In
I would like to start this column with one of my all time favorites.
This is a great song either for a Lindy Hop or for a Balboa crowd.
I especially like the break after about 2:50 where you think a new song is going to start before you realize that it's still the same one.
Title: All The Cats Join In
Artist: Benny Goodman & Orchestra
Recorded: June 12, 1944
Tempo: 180 bpm
Dance: Lindy Hop, Balboa
You can find the songs of the series also on my Spotify playlist.
Official hashtag of the series: #djcsotw
