lol Actually I prefer the 1960s and 70s. I just think the big band era was a great part of musical history. People like
Benny Goodman,Tommy Dorsey, Glenn Miller etc. were cooler than the other side of the pillow.
Bubba has a good point here and that is this,, the type of music is called "Big Band", not "swing".
It didn't all "swing".
There was something about this type of music that made it "swing" and that description still holds true and applies to today's modern music.
Can ANYONE win an invisible prize by describing the magical thing that makes music "swing"?
There is a very specific thing that it needs.
(( Drummers, make me proud of you )) LOL
*Bubba,, don't answer, you already know..
