Soundie: The Outline of Jitterbug History

Picture of The Outline of Jitterbug History

Today's Soundie is a silly one but contains some Swingin' music courtesy of Stan Kenton and His Orchestra.  Stan and the Band don't make an appearance but I really think you will enjoy the jam.  The Soundie is called "The Outline of Jitterbug History" and was filmed in 1940. It wasn't released to Panoram until 1942.  This video contains a lot of Lindy Hop so I'm sure many of you will enjoy the film just for that.

Like I said, it's silly.  But most of the Soundies were and that's what makes them so darn fun to watch.
