Last year, a new movie on one of our favorite band leaders, Rick Joswick, came out and a bunch of us were in it. Many got to be at the big party (picture above), and this week, we can all dance to this now-legendary drummer, swing dance band leader.
Long a favorite on the Lindy Hop scene, the Jumpin' Joz Band's style is a wonderful combination of Swing, Jump, Jazz, early R&B, reminiscent of Count Basie, Louie Prima, Benny Goodman, Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald & Louie Jordan.
Jumpin' Joz is the leader, drummer, singer, and arranger whose inspiration is the great Gene Krupa. He plays with an exciting down to earth swing beat. Because Joz is a swing dancer, as well, he plays the beat the dancers want to hear.
