This week's swing show features a number of great jazz vocalists including Louis Armstrong, June Christy and Dinah Washington in the first set.  There's also great swing music from Buddy Rich, Benny Goodman, and Stan Kenton.

By the way, if you're a Stan Kenton fan, you might want to tune in to Jazz with OT on Sunday evenings for a series of Kenton profiles starting July 5th at 10pm.  Here's the schedule: July 5th (part 1), July 12th (part 2), July 19th (part 3), July 26th (part 4), August 2nd (part 5), August 23 (part 6), and August 30th (part 7).  The profiles were recorded by Oscar Treadwell in 1975.

Ella Fitzgerald, Tony Bennett, and Frank Sinatra will be heard on the second half of the swing show.  And, the show closes out with Glenn Miller's classic "In the Mood."
