If you grew up in the 90's you definitely remember this week's genre - Swing Revival!!! Damion Davis from Mana Kintorso is back with us to disect this unusual blip during an interesting musical era during the era of grunge, boy bands, and Creed. "Swing Revival was a late 1990s period of renewed popular interest in swing and jump blues music and dance from the 1930s and 1940s as exemplified by Louis Prima, often mixed with a more contemporary rock, rockabilly or ska sound, known also as neo-swing or retro swing." - Wikipedia
