Jude Lindy is an Irish singer and showman of Classic Jazz from the 1920s and 1930s. He has a trained voice, and also has several years’ experience as a professional actor. He discovered Classic Jazz and Swing in Texas, where he studied at the ZACH theatre in Austin. He subsequently graduated at the prestigious Gaiety School of Acting in Dublin where he also trained at Walton’s School of Music. Today, he takes private lessons in vocal repertoire with coach Patrizia Gallo (Conservatorio Santa Cecilia) in Rome.

During his artistic schooling he studied dance and movement and has danced Lindy Hop and Collegiate Shag (two of the best known Swing dances from the 1930s) for several years, having first discovered Swing dance in Marseille in France where he lived for three years.

He has had the honour to sing and perform with various highly-acclaimed artists in the Jazz and Swing world from Europe and the United States.

“An international artist in spirit and experience, Jude Lindy’s capacity to communicate his passion makes him a true protagonist of the stage, able to completely captivate his public in the magical richness of Swing and Classic Jazz.”

2018- New Year, full of wonderful surprises- I make a matter of trying to find the original score sheets worldwide, for all of the songs I sing. I buy them and have them mailed to friends’ houses throughout the world. Then they pdf them to me… it’s cheaper that way 🙂 I collect the originals to ensure that when I study a […]
Meeting living history – Norma Miller celebrates 97 birthdays!- 2016 This weekend in Milan will stay with me forever. Beyond the shows, interviews and presentations, my moments alone with Norma Miller chatting together about Swing music and dance were powerful. I’m very grateful and honored to have been part of A Royal Welcome for the Queen of Swing: Norma Miller! Here’s looking at you […]
The joy of playing with musicians for the first time – Claudio Perelli- October 2016 So, Saturday the 1st October 2016 , I put together “Jude Lindy’s Hot 5” for a gig at Spirit de Milan. Thanks to an excellent recommendation from Mauro Porro I contacted Claudio Perelli, a polystrumentalist reed player. Little did I know that I was going to be playing with someone who many consider […]
“Swingala” , Rome – after too long a break the capital gleams!!- 23th-25th September 2016. So great to have been part of Swingala, organized by Spirit of St. Louis Dance School and Chapeau Productions. After too long a time in the dark Rome splendoured again in all its beauty. Great participation, great primary venue. Excellent organization. I felt really proud to be a part of this festival. […]
Policoro in Swing – the joy of meeting and playing with new musicians- 2016 It’s just wonderful to meet and play with new musicians. I was delighted to jam and then play with the Madrid Hot Jazz Band and the Dusty Jazz Blasters from Turin at Policoro in Swing Festival 2016. Musicians and bands bring their own styles, grooves and colors to a song. For me as a […]
28th July 2016- A little bit of New Orleans in Milan….. Classic Jazz brings people together- Our aperitif gig at Panificio Danelli in the Lambrate area of Milan in July really brought home a few things to me. I realised all over again the magic of Classic Jazz – it makes people come out of their houses, get involved, dance and sing. Perhaps classic jazz is really at its most powerful […]
28th-29th June 2016 – thoughts on…. Ascona Jazz Festival, Switzerland- It was my first time to visit Ascona Jazz Festival. To be honest the warnings I had received about speed traps, cameras etc., left me arriving a little tired and wary. A magical, though expensive location, where 1 CH Franc is presumed to be equal to 1 Euro, we heard Classic Jazz in the distance […]
24th May 2016 – The spontaneity and joy of Lindy Hop & Swing at 37,000 feet leads to worldwide coverage- I can’t express how delighted and proud I was when I saw the video of Lindyhopper friends from Milan, Florence and elsewhere as they did an impromptu Shim Sham at 37,000 feet, returning to Italy from the “Harlem” festival in Lithuania…. The magic is in the simplicity and honesty of the action…. Moments like this […]
10th April 2016 Translation into English of Giorgio Cùscito’s interview with Jazz Agenda about Swing, classic Jazz and their inter-dependence- In this post, I am putting my own translation in English (from Italian) of the interview which my friend, musician and maestro Giorgio Cùscito – a pillar of classic Jazz and Swing in Italy – did a few days ago with journalist Carlo Cammarella of Italy’s Jazz Agenda. I feel what Giorgio has to say […]
