The old meets the new in music with "electro-swing"

(CBS) - I've always been a big fan of big-band era swing music. I'm also a huge fan of electronic and mixing/mashing, as you can tell from my last post.  But is there any way to have the best of both worlds in one music styling?

Yes. Yes there is.

So what do you all think - can you dig it, daddy-o?

The style is called "electro-swing" or "swing house," and the song above is "Jolie Coquine" by Caravan Palace. A very cool blend of the old mixed with the new in a way that becomes distinctly its own, and really gets this particular blogger jazzed.
