Swing Music covers a number of styles and developed in America in the 1930’s. By the 1940’s it was fully established becoming hugely popular with lots of different styles of Swing music coming from it. Swing is based on a strong rhythm section of double bass and drums and to this, other layers are added such as lead instruments of trumpet, sax or trombone as well as piano and of course vocals.

Swing Bands can be as small as 4 pieces and go to 18 piece Big Bands. Swing Music encapsulates the music of the Big Bands such as Benny Goodman, and Glenn Miller as well as smaller Swing Bands of Louis Jordan and Luis Prima who specialised in Jump Jive & Jump Blues. Swing Bands are of course also associated with the music of the Rat Pack.
