These are some of my favourite music of NeoSwing and no classic stuff in Spotify and Grooveshark links.
- Meschiya lake, (Lucky Devil): the new sound of new orleans: slow and suggestive.
- Big bad voodoo daddy (Rattle them bones). Modern swing, hunkiest and fast, although with a very classic touch
- White Ghost Shivers (Nobody loves you like we do): guitar swing manouche style. fast!
- La locomotora negra (Anys 35mm) , they are from barcelona and this record is about swing soundtracks.
- La vella dixieland (Swing on), also from barcelona, they play jazz standards with nueva orleans style.
- New Morty Show (Mortyfied!), new themes, some rock covers in swing style; Hunky!.
- Lavay Smith (Everybody's talkin' Bout Miss Thing), it sound with a lot of blues.
- Squirrel nut zippers (all the records, but especially "hot" and "peremnial favourites"), also with manouche style, they mix with klezmer music, and a lot of stuff. very happy sound.
- Cherry poppin Daddies (Zoot Suit Riot), a classic within the neoswing sound
- Royan crown revue (Mugzy's Move), another neoswing mandatory group
- Atomic Fireballs (Torch This Place). Very, very fast and animated.

Some notes about the AABA 32-bar song form. I'm still figuring out how to insert the 6 count steps. I guess they fit in a 32 bar form with 4 six count and 1 eight count. Doesn't is it very rigid? I don't know. Any idea? I recently discovered shuffleprojects.com and i love it, by the way.
PD: I've recieved a kind response of Christian, author of the post:
I guess, it depends on the dance level. To a beginner, I indeed would say 4x six counts and 1x eight count. But you also could do 2x6 / 1x8 / 2x6. And with further practice you would't stay within the sections all the time, you would link them together and mix 6 and 8 counts more freely.
