Another crazy high energetic Lindy Shock is over and for the third time, I was one of the main DJs.
Man, if you haven't been to this event yet, then you definitely miss out on something.
The quality of the music – live and canned -was again very high and I think, it's still getting better from year to year.
Even as an experienced DJ, I get a lot of inspiration and I always discover many, many songs that I don't know or don't have in my library.
I have featured Artie Shaw a few times before (see #14, #85, #119, and #172) but his music is just too good. So here is another tune and the credits go to Marc D'Olimpio and Janne Börjesson, who both played that tune during Lindy Shock.
Although I have a big Artie Shaw library, I was a little bit shocked, that I couldn't find it there ;).
When The Quail Come Back To San Quentin
A fine and groovy small group tune with electric guitar and harpsichord. Delicious 🙂
