At the height of the jazz age, each of the major swing bands had their own signature sound, immediately recognizable to their enthusiastic fans. This composition puts these various sounds and rhythms together in homage to a vibrant and innovative time in American music. This piece is a fun way to teach your ensemble to swing and get your audience tapping their toes! Commissioned by the West Vancouver (BC) Youth Band - Douglas Macaulay, director - in tribute to Canada's King of Swing, Dal Richards. Dur: 4:55.
