Swing 1/25

Jazz >> Swing

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.

Vintage / classical style acoustic guitar jazz, Easy going, relaxed and somewhat playful, this track is both 'bluesy', happy and romantic, Historical, traditional jazz or Americana, D'jango / Hot club of France, old time bar, restaurant or dance hall, Visions of 1910-1950 New York,

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.


Hot Tubbin'


Gypsy Jazz / Hot Club of France style, acoustic jazz in the style of D'jango etc, Vintage / historical jazz with a happy, playful mood, Acoustic guitars, upright bass, piano, subtle jazz drums,


M D Blues


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.
