The home page of the Western Swing Society describes western swing as "a division of the American phenomenon known as jazz [fusing] elements of musical roots...including blues, Dixieland, ragtime, big band, country, pop, and breakdowns." That kind of explains why we revisit this genre so often here on Deeper Roots. What it has most in common with jazz is the use of improvisation; what it does try to do is to take things one step further: make it dance-able. The foot-tapping rhythm and the encouragement of participation drew audiences far and wide from the north, south, east and west. This week show meanders through some fun sounds including tracks Hank Penny, Milton Brown, Ocie Stockard, and (of course) Bob Wills. We'll have some tribute songs and old standards for you on Sonoma County community radio on our last show of summer.
