Recommend me some Female vocalist Swing Bands

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by Lokire, Dec 20, 2005.

  1. Every once in a while on the radio I'll catch some old swing tune with a female vocalist and I really love that type of music, but I'm not sure who to look for exactly. That real, sweet, smooth kinda vocal Jazz/Swing style songs.

    Like on Victor Wooten's song "One" off of his Yin-Yang disk. That's basically the vocal style I'm looking for.

    Any suggestions?

  3. Ella Fitzgerald. Anything else is pure immitation.
  4. Yep, I've got a bunch of Ella Fitzgerald stuff already. :)

    Last I checked, Horror Pops weren't exactly old style Jazz/Swing :eyebrow:

    Billie Holiday and Sara Vaughn are completely original vocalists, and Holiday is the only one I know of who Sinatra cited as a role model.
