By julien incontrol — June 10, 2011

Frankie Sumatra, Edimbourgh, UK swing,  jazz, soul. Edimbourgh strikes one more time. This city seems to be a paradise for jazz music. Today I’m happy to introduce you Frankie Sumatra. Working as a director at The Voodoo Rooms, he also finds time to dj at long-running Edinburgh swing club Vegas in his spare time. His mixes are worth being shared with you all. This one is a mix of vintage Jazz, Swing & R’n'B sounds with a touch of Nu Swing you won’t find Electronic music in it, but who cares … when it’s good :-)

What is Electro Swing for you ?
Electro Swing is bringing a hedonistic, open-minded spirit to today’s dancefloors, introducing vintage jazz, swing, jive and r’n'b sounds to a new generation, giving the classics a contemporary twist and inspiring artists to produce great new music influenced by the past but looking to the future. Electro Swing an intoxicating cocktail of old and new. Electro Swing is about breaking down boundaries. It’s an inclusive thing, fusing genres and bringing people of all different kinds and ages together.

    Oh my God ! The set is remarkable and the pocast left me with the happiest of feelings. Maybe that's the best way to approach this set, with less of an eye toward its omissions and more of just an appreciation of an exceptionally nice try... Ground breaking jazz music and dizzying explanations mix structures are all wonderful, but really all you can do is just listen. And know there's so much more still waiting to be discovered here in electro-swing....

    Is there a track listing anwhere for this set? I would love to know the name/artist of the very last song. This was a fun swing set -- less electro than the others, but lots of great tracks. i especially like the love given to the Squirrel Nut Zippers in there. Cheers!
