Bob Wills - Western Swing

I never really thought that Jazz and Western music really had anything in common, and I certainly never have imagined combining the styles, but Bob Wills proves me wrong over and over again on this excellent collection. Now that I listen carefully to it, I can hear that Blues-based Jazz from New Orleans and Western/Country music are both coming from similar traditional folk music roots. I think traditional American music is a beautifully rich form, and I like hearing it's imprint and influence on this LP. Please check it out.
