Schonberg discusses the lives and works of the foremost figures in classical music, weaving a fabric rich in detail and anecdote.

Evil, by the Cameros
Swing Music by a local (NY) band with two killer leading ladies. Soothing and smooth, but can still hop!

Vintage Collection, by Wanda Jackson
Listen to these tracks with Real Audio!
Some say, the Camero's remind them of Wanda. She was around 40 years ago, swinging and doing the country scene. Track 1, I Gotta Know, is impressive, while tracks 3 (Hot Dog! That Made Him Mad), 4 (Riot In Cell Block #9), 8 (Rock Your Baby), 10 (Fujiyama Mama), and 11 are a swingers dream! I bought the CD at Columbia House for 99 cents, but if you can't get that deal, it is still worth the normal price just for those 5 tracks. The other tracks are country, but they are darn good.
