Re: Can You Suggest a Swing Song?

"Sinatra Reprise The Very Good Years," with The Count Basie Orchestra, a great "best of" collection, is mostly mid tempo swing songs in a modern big band context including: I Get a Kick Out Of You Luck Be A Lady The Best is Yet to Come (my favorite) Fly Me To The Moon I've Got Yo...
