Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 099104259X, Paperback)

The Swing Movement -- all jazz hands and high-waisted pants -- advanced and receded in good order.

I wrote this book to tell the other side of the story. I want you to know about the oddball collection of iconoclasts who got together and made the Squirrel Nut Zippers what they were: a combustible, improbable gumbo of joy and menace. Along the way, I write about our many influences: jazz and blues and hot music and calypso and, yes, swing.

Come run these fields, like rabbits, while the harvest moon hangs caught in the branches. Come linger over this snapshot.
