Swing It!: An Annotated History of Jive
Bill Milkowski (au); Tim Hauser (fr). Swing It! is a celebration of jive, that exuberant, irrepressible, & entirely infectious spirit found in such good-time anthems as “Are You Hep to the Jive?”, “Jump, Jive ‘n’ Wail,” & “Hit That Jive, Jack.” The book chronicles the rich & colorful history of that quintessentially American sound, taking us on a journey from its pioneers to today’s retro swingers through its Golden Era. Along the way it illuminates the contributions made by beboppers, jump blues hounds, N’awlins jivesters, the white connection, & women jivesters. It also includes a hilarious foreword by Tim Hauser (founder of the Grammy Award-winning Manhattan Transfer), extensive discographies, a comprehensive A-Z glossary, & vintage photos of jive’s most charismatic entertainers.
