Nothing wrong with a swing band in the land of avant-gardism. It's all related anyway. :-)

The Count! It was about time! What a wonderful post, Riccardo you're my hero, thank you indeed.
When it comes to big bands, you just can't beat the Count and the Duke! They would take no
prisoners, they just killed. I don't think I've got this one in my old reels, therefore I sincerely thank
you for the lossless option. Keep 'em coming!
