Swing music –or simply swing- is a music style that developed in the early 1930s. The rhythm section of bass and drums serve as “anchor” for wind instruments such as trumpets and trombones, and woodwind instruments such as saxophone and clarinets. Once and again, violins and guitars resurface in the arrangements. Swing means momentum, and it originated from the phrase “swing feeling”, because the main emphasis of the rhythm is on the second and fourth beats (off beat), which represent the weaker/lighter impulses in the metrics (for example, in classical music). Swing bands usually introduced soloists, like Benny Goodman, one of the most popular band leaders, who improvised with the melody. Between 1935 and 1946 (also known as the swing era), swing music reached its high point and was the favorite kind of music in the U.S. Boosted by the swing trend, other newer jazz styles were created. Some examples are cool jazz and Latin jazz.
