Wade In The Water by Eva Cassidy, 1997
Song of the Week #008

It' not only swing & jazz music that is great for swing dancing. This song relates to the Old and New Testaments and reflects the Israelites' escape out of Egypt. The original version of this song goes back as far as the 1920's. It has been recorded by many artists over the years and this version is especially great for slow swing and blues dancing.

Eva Cassidy was an American vocalist and guitarist known for her interpretations of jazz, blues, folk, gospel, country, rock, and pop classics. She passed away in 1996 and this version was released a year later.
