Swing music recommendations?
I'm reaaaaally addicted to swing music! I love the classics, like Sinatra and Goodman, but I need mooooore. Songs, people in general, anything you can think of!
I really love stuff from the 20s/30s, and I love just instrumental music as well, so don't worry if there are no lyrics! (:
