After an hiatus due to illness I then suffered a bit of mixer's block, rendering me a bit ga-ga when it came to figuring out, well, the basics of putting together a mix. So, I enlisted Claude, kind soul that he is, to embark on an alternating dj project to help me get my sea legs back. This swinging little number is the result, and a jolly-fine listen it is, too. I hope you all enjoy it as much as we do. (Guesses on the odds and evens?) Back in the swing of things.

well i can see that your bout of mixer's block did nothing to diminish your knack for choosing great tunes - stellar stuff here

Well, 2,12,15-17 and 20 got my attention. Well teamed.

Crikey, I spend a week away and miss this.Leif on evens, I guess (but who cares, looks like a great mix).

Claude's been on a rich vein of form recently IMO, but it looks like you held your own with him Ed. Fantastic work.

Glad you are doing better and happy you are back. Nicely done guys.

Swing seems less popular around here than I thought it would. But hey, this is not a popularity contest after all. I enjoyed putting together this swinging mix with you. I'm looking forward to you posting mixes here again, as this undoubtedly will allow my to further broaden my musical horizon.

Horizon broadener, eh? Quid pro quo, my friend. Mr. C is on evens, btw, and I'm, well, odd. Odds.

This really really swings, & I like the way you let yourself go out with blue skies. Many thanks for the most enjoyable listen.
