Swing, swing, swing, swing: John Goddard’s personally curated, impeccably hosted foray into the annals of popular music this year lands on the greats of the Swing Era. Tapping into his earliest memories—and proving that it don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing—Goddard will veejay his way through the ’30s and ’40s, that time of remarkable orchestrations and unforgettable lyrics that launched some of the greatest talents of American popular music. He’ll explore the sonorous sophistication of youngster Frank Sinatra, honing his pipes as frontman for Tommy Dorsey; the highfalutin’ harmonizing of the inimitable Andrews Sisters; the soulful innovation of Billie Holiday; the foot-tapping orchestravaganzas (sic!) from the likes of Cab, Duke, and Benny—all of which will be sure to have you dancing in the aisles. Whether your preference is hi de hi or ho de ho, just know t’ain’t watcha do, it’s the way that you do it: And be prepared for some stompin’ at the Sequoia.

Expected Guest: John Goddard  (All Screenings)
