“CRAZY RHYTHM” and “LET’S PRETEND THAT THERE’S A MOON”: TAMAR KORN, GORDON AU, DENNIS LICHTMAN, NICK RUSSO, GENEVIEVE ROSE at BOSTON SWING CENTRAL (Feb. 3, 2012)

Wonderfully swung, well-recorded, and well-photographed . . . as if we were there!  (“There” is Boston Swing Central on Feb. 3, 2012; the participants were the Grand Street Stompers, directed by Gordon Au, with expressive singing by Tamar Korn.)

Here’s the gleeful late-Twenties confession that jazz has the same mind-altering powers as other illicit substances, CRAZY RHYTHM:

And for some faux-astronomy but real romance, here’s LET’S PRETEND THAT THERE’S A MOON (first crooned by that master of the erogenous zones, Thomas Waller):

Both of these videos were posted by dirtywaterlindy on YouTube — to Ms. or Mr. Lindy, we give thanks — also to Tamar, Gordon, Dennis, Nick, and Genevieve, and the organizers of Boston Swing Central.

  3. Also, Colombo was at the very least a master of Carole Lombard’s erogenous zones, right?

  4. I wouldn’t dare to disagree . . . although Carole isn’t around to verify the assertion!
