Mama, I can Scat! Dane Stauffer Sings & Swings

Mama I Can Scat by Dane StaufferI was singing in a review at House of Blues, Hollywood, and working with this combo was part of the treat. Multi-Instrumentalist Javier Aronja put the combo together. In his cozy garage studio in Long Beach,CA, we laid down these all tracks in one long delightful, swinging April day. I grew up loving these old songs, and singing them around the city, seeing how they make people smile, and swing, and bounce fills my heart. I’ve recorded a few for you. Hope you enjoy! Mom and dad, this one’s for you.
