Chick Webb, Frankie Manning and the birth of Lindy Hop

Video von kilkennyswing auf Youtube:
" In his own words Frankie describes his birthplace of Jacksonville, Florida and its connection with the baptist church, he describes what a swing is and the evolution of the lindy hop to this new sound, we hear about the savoy, its two battling bandstands and of Chick Webb the resident band leader who orchestrated the proceedings."
