Swing [Original Broadway Cast], Sony Classical (2000)

 

cover art

This Everett Bradley (co-writer/vocals) original entitled “Show Me What You Got” was one of biggest dance numbers of the show. The song goes through a mind-boggling amount of style/dance changes in four and a half minutes, making it not only a great drum feature, but also one of the most enjoyable numbers to play in the book.
