I've celebrated New Year's for, well, years. And I've never been to a really good New Year's Eve party. I see stuff in movies, and think, "Man, that'd be a great party!" Sure, that's the movies. But I've seen documentary footage of big New Year's Eve parties in New York City and Los Angeles and Chicago from the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s, and they were pretty much like you see in classic motion pictures.

So why aren't there parties like that any more?

You know, in D.C., New Year's Eve parties are confined to over-crowded bars and have no entertainment whatsoever. You don't dance, you don't see bands, nothing!

It sucks.

Myself, when I think New Year's, I think swing and big band. GOOD stuff. Like this. Listen.............
