Loose Marbles
Boilermaker Jazz Band
Jonathan Stout Orchestra

Why? Because they are all awesome. Also, they know how to play for dancers like no one else.

I'm a fan of the Loose Marbles as well-- and my acquaintance with them is pretty much limited to that sequence of youtube videos, but I like what I hear.

I heartily recommend Mora's Modern Rhythmists. I was introduced to them through their cover of Wingy Manone's "Tarpaper Stomp", which Falty choreographed his jazz steps to for the Rockin' in Rhythm weekend.

Other than that, I'm not terribly familiar with the national music scene. I think I just haven't been around long enough. If I had to keep listing stuff, I'd be reduced to bands I've danced to live... Lunch Money, that army band that we've had for closing socials, and Tucson Swings.

They were at showdown this year. They were a.m.a.z.i.n.g. The youtube videos are awesome, they're even more awesome live. That girl can sing.

Their website didn't work for me, but I found a myspace page for them:
http://www.myspace.com/morasmodernrhythmists

They sound good. They're scheduled for Camp Hollywood 2008. I wonder if they've played there before. If so, I would have heard them.

Weird. Yeah, I've verified the URL and it's right, and their site really is down. I guess it happens some times.

Signs point to 2005.

They are way good... Needless to say if they are booked for Camp Hollywood... I mean come on.

I also like Jonathon Stout Orchetra. And Stompy Jones is always goo (they aren't a big band, but they cover a lot of Louie Jordan songs.. and Pops will always have a place in my heart!)

So apparently, bits and pieces of the Loose Marbles used to be in the Dead Man Street Orchestra, and you can find about an album's worth of recordings by them here:
