    I may be asking for the impossible here,lol! There has to be some classic swing songs redone by some big band within 10 years. I love the original recordings that are out there on cd but they really lack the dynamic range of studio productions nowadays.

    Although not a true 'swing' band, give the BRIAN SETZER LIVE IN JAPAN DVD a spin. There's a mix of rock, rockabilly and swing on the disc, all in 16x9 anamorphic video with a DTS 5.1 surround track. It's a great disc.

    Les Brown & His Band Of Renown DVD-A by DTS is one of my fav's.

    How do you like Dire Straits' SULTANs OF SWING?

    Unfortunately its just one song.

    Maybe Joe Jackson's 80's album of swing?
