Ask a top swing dancer (or any swing dancer) what first brought them to the hobby, and most will reply: “the music.” Less often does this path go the other way, with a dance obsession kicking off a music career. And yet Michael Gamble—a player, arranger, transcriber, and bandleader with whom big names boast of working—is an example of just that.
