Music~What it's really about.

For those of you that don't already know, the Squirrel Nut Zippers are a melting pot of music genres. I usually refer to their style as swing, but there are clear latin/gitano influences. Jazz, swing, it is all good to me!!


Listed below are all of the albums that have been released by the Squirrel Nut Zippers. I have indicated in parenthesis which order I purchased/received these albums, as well as if I purchased it (P), it was a gift (G), or if I won it (W). And, I am happy to say that my collection is now complete! What a satifying feeling! ; ) These facts are vital, in my opinion, to understand how I have witnessed the SNZ music change. All of these albums, and other fancy products, can be purchased at the SNZ Online Store, so make sure you keep your credit card handy!

I love this music! I love jazz, swing, big band, blues, and a lot of other styles. It puts me in a good mood, makes me wanna swing. And I do. I used to be a strict new rock/alternative listener until I heard the Squirrel Nut Zippers. They've broadened my tastes, believe it or not. Inspired by the SNZ, I decided to join my high school's jazz band. I ended up playing in it for two years. It wasn't lame at all, like some of you might think since it was school-related. It was really some of the most fun I had in high school, and it inspired me to start playing my sax again (FOR FUN!). I was also given the opportunity to sing with the band! Not quite Katherine Whalen, but oh well! I listen to jazz because it is creative, fun, and so different than what you normally hear on the radio. I love it!!!
