Last week I called a Zoom meeting with myself to try to restore my faith in humanity. This is “Swing Along,” one of the many amazing and somewhat subversive songs by turn-of-the-20th-century genius Will Marion Cook, who helped bring the first all-Black production to Broadway in 1902. Special thanks to the hyper-incredible all-star Broadway cast of “Shuffle Along” for inspiration. Keep swinging along and making that good trouble, chilluns.
From the new album Ain’t Going Anywhere.
