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.

""Leise rieselt der Schnee" played by a jazzy big band! Typical sidelines, cool solo passages, stabs and tuttis - you got everything! This is going to be the best Christmas ever!"
Mid tempo big band tune
Slapstick number, only piano and percussion, then an extended Jazz Combo Arrangement with a beautiful theme played by a clarinet.
French flair, outstanding accordion in a duet with a gypsy guitar, cheerful Parisian nightlife
Relaxed ragtime played by the piano, with a jazzy middle part.
Happy, uptempo "Hot Club of France" type jazz, performed on acoustic guitars. ("Boulangerie" is French and means Bakery).
Pushing drum intro, walking bass in a jazz-trio-setup, the piano improvised. Later a drum computer appears on the stage.
Upbeat Big Band tune
A very relaxed slapstick and big band number. In the very first part the piano doubled by pizzicato strings introduce the melody, then all string and woodwind players come into play. The middle section is carried by trumpets and trombones and form therefore a B-part which can be also used seperately.

The Game Show opens its doors.
Light and bouncy blues. This medium track begins with a single alto sax playing the lead melody. On the repeat, more saxes join in to create a lush ensemble playing harmonies before each player has their solo. Upbeat and uplifting.
