The swing era was the high point of jazz’s popularity with the public. These bands were rock stars—popular with multiple generations in a way that has never again been equaled. Parents and kids often danced to the same music (unimaginable today). Find out what makes the swing music in the 30’s and 40’s so unique as Rob delves into the works of famous bandleaders of the time including Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller and Artie Shaw. What a swinging evening!
