Ah, swing, well we used to call it syncopation - then they called it ragtime, then blues - then jazz. Now, it's swing. Ha! Ha! White folks yo'all sho is a mess. Ha! Ha! Swing! - Louis Armstrong, asked by host Bing Crosby to explain swing on a national radio program

Wish mine was as big as this....

Oh yes I do   :D

I have just returned from a week in Rome where one of the items in the hotel foyer was this amazing gramaphone.

I was unable to easily get inside it to see the works, but it stood about 4 feet tall from the floor - that is BIG  :P

Just imagine firing that up to hear a CB 78 or two, the sheer volume and presence would put all our electronic hi-fi stuff in the shade.
