Today's tune is "Jump Children" by The International Sweethearts of Rhythm. Fronted by Anna Mae Winburn (her outfit and hair are amazing--in fact, every of the band members is wonderfully stylish), the International Sweethearts of Rhythm was the first integrated, all-women band in the United States. I hope you enjoy this song as much as I did!
