Country Club #29: Time Jumpers Revive Western Swing

The Time Jumpers is a group of Nashville-based musicians who have gotten together to play Western Swing since 1998.  Much like the Thad Jones-Mel Lewis jazz band, they started out of love of the music playing a regular gig at what had been a club's offnight. Country music superstar Vince Gill joined the band in 2012 and is featured on the group's album, the self-titled The Time Jumpers. In case you're wondering, this is a different song than the classic blues by Ray Charles (and others)"I'm Going to Move to the Outskirts of Town."

The Time Jumpers has a very nice web site and you can find more Time Jumpers videos at You Tube.
