    The Sound of Money

    One of the embarrassing moments from my youth was singing "Summer Nights" from the Grease movie soundtrack at the top of my lungs. In my best John-Travolta-as-a-six-year-old voice, I recounted Danny's summer of love, even though I had no idea what he...

    Swing and Smirk

    Roomful of Blues -- The current swing revival must have at least some members of Roomful of Blues smirking. Since 1968 (before many of today's neoswingers were even conceived) the band's ever-revolving lineup has offered its encyclopedic interpretati...

    The phone is no friend of Curt Kirkwood's. Too often, the tidings it bears are foul. He calls them "incomings from Tempe." They go like this: Your brother's wife overdosed this morning; She's dead. Your brother got busted again last night, and h...
