This category is pretty much all I ever post over in "What are you listening to?"   

Hmmm.

I still enjoy swing. Like any music that relies heavily on brass, it's best live.

In Asmo's grey lump,
wrath and dark clouds gather force.
Luxembourg trembles.

That dates you Rec. 

Glenn Miller may very well still be in the English Channel since about 1944. I cut my musical teeth on the likes of Miller, Goodman, Krupa, and the rest of that kind of music.

There are a number of You Tube bits that feature Japanese High School kids doing swing as well as any of the old timers.

And there was Benny Goodman, who I associate with that era as well.

Summer Day Reflection, an evocative song by Donovan that could inspire some impressionistic paintings.


Cat is sleeping in the sun
Eyes take heed the colours call
Sunlight patterns touch the wall
Red kerchiefs sail and fall
Cat is sleeping in the sun
Dragon kite in the sky
Wheel and turns, spin and fly
Attacked by rooks who never fail
To cry the sound of fairy tales
The cat is walkin' in the sun
All the pebbles I have seen
Precious stones for Colleen
Every minute I pass through
Would be groovy spent with you
The cat is yawning in the sun
Jewelled castles I have built
With freak feelings of guilt
And the words stab to the hilt
Pick the flower and it will wilt
Cat is shifting in the sun
Marionette dangles death
Insensitivity is fed
By the TV wizard's wand
Whilst in the spell you're conned
Cat is smiling in the sun
Cat is smiling in the sun
Eyes take heed the colours call
Sunlight patterns touch the wall
Red kerchiefs sail and fall
Cat is smiling into me

Donovan' song brought to mind In a Summer Garden by Frederick Delius.
