I've just completed a documentary entitled "Swing Dance Party" about the
musical journey of Jumpin' Joz" (Rick Joswick) a multi-instrumantalist and
vocalist who was a member of the rock & roll group
The One Eyed Jacks, whose members included Mike Murphy
(future member of REO Speedwagon), hit songwriter Tom Kelly,
Hollywood music supervisor
Budd Carr, and
Hollywood film & TV composer
This band was the first group ever booked by legendary personal manager and record executive
Joz fell in love with swing music from a very young age, and as the world's preeminent swing drummer he has fronted
the Jumpin' Joz Band, a driving force of the
Southern California swing scene for over three decades.
