SWING! THE NEW RETRO RENAISSANCE
[Lifestyle - Retro - Swing]
This book documents the first major lifestyle change since punk. After a 50-year absence, partner-dancing is back with a vengeance, propelled by a new generation of bands with roots in Hot Jazz, Jump Swing, Western Swing, and Rockabilly. Lavishly illustrated (b&w), with informative directories, lists of recommended recordings, books, films, etc, this is the first comprehensive guide to a new state of mind sweeping the globe from the West Coast to New York City, the UK to Japan.
