Early Swing


Notes

Early 1930s hot dance music.

Common belief says Ellington "It Don't Mean A Thing…" from 1932 was the first recording that has "swing" in its title. There's more; Luis Russell's "Louisiana Swing" (supp. they meant the style, and not the object), " Swingin' Dem Cats" by the Missourians, both from 1930 and "Swing Out" by J.C. Higginbotham/Henry Red Allen from 1929, not in mix.
