Don't overlook the other swing ... Western Swing, from Bob wills and the Texas Playboys to Lyle Lovett and His Large Band.

Bob Wills with Tommy Duncan - A Good Man Is Hard To Find & I Had Someone Else Before I Had You.

Lyle Lovett & His Large Band - That´s Right You´re Not From Texas

You can add Wayne "The Train" Hancock to that group, as a modern, keeping the western swing torch lit, disciple.

Can't forget about Django! I love the uke version of minor swing on YouTube...I just can't quite get the chromatic run at speed.
