    Well, I'm a jump blues gal, primarily, but I love most music of the period. :) I'm a singer, not a dancer, so I prefer character pieces, or the fast, loud, jumping stuff that I can really get my teeth into. I'm not a purist; I value both original and retro-revival for their own sakes and sounds.

    Fav songs:
    Billie Holliday - Swing, Brother, Swing
    Cab Calloway - Jumpin' Jive
    - We The Cats Shall Hep Ya-
    - San Francisco Fan-
    Louis Jordan - Five Guys Named Moe
    What's The Use of Gettin' Sober (When You're Gonna Get Drunk Again)
    Cootie Williams - Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby
    Woody Herman - Caldonia
    Charlie Barnet - Share Croppin' Blues
    Stuff Smith - Here Comes The Man With The Jive
    Lil Green - Why Don't You Do Right
    Dinah Washington - Evil Gal Blues
    Tiny Bradshaw - Shout Sister Shout
    Andy Kirk - Hey Lawdy Mama
    Gene Krupa - Knock Me A Kiss
    Dean Martin - Ain't That A Kick In The Head
    Frank Sinatra - One For My Baby
    - Somewhere Beyond The Sea
    Joe Jackson - You Run Your Mouth (And I'll Run My Business Brother)
    - You're My Meat
    - Jack, You're Dead!
    Cherry Poppin' Daddies - When I Change Your Mind
    - Brown Derby Jump
    - Drunk Daddy
    - Cherry Poppin' Daddy Strut
    Royal Crown Revue - Hey Pachuco!
    Robbie Williams & Jon Lovitz - Well Did You Evah
    Robbie & Rupert Everett - They Can't Take That Away From Me
    Robbie & Jonathan Wilkes - Me & My Shadow

    Yeah, I can hear the purists choking by the end of the list... :p

    I love anything I can charleston to (not that I really know how to Charleston!)
