Swing Radio Stations

Swing music (also known as swing jazz) is a form of american jazz music that originated in the early 1930s and became its own identifiable style by the 1940s. Swing music places a strong emphasis on the rhythm section of a band. This rhythm section consists of a double bass and drums which act as the backbone for the lead section of brass instruments such as trumpets, trombones and the saxophone. Swing music is characterised by its swing time rhythm where emphasis is placed on the off beat (or weaker pulse) within the music. Swing music, or simply swing, is a form of American music that dominated in the 1930s and 1940s. Swing uses a strong rhythm section of double bass and drums as the anchor for a lead section of brass instruments such as trumpets and trombones, woodwinds including saxophone and clarinets, and sometimes stringed instruments such as violin and guitar, medium to fast tempos, and a “lilting” swing time rhythm.

The name swing came from the ‘swing feel’ where the emphasis is on the off–beat or weaker pulse in the music. Swing bands usually featured soloists who would improvise on the melody over the arrangement. The danceable swing style of big bands and bandleaders such as Benny Goodman was the dominant form of American popular music from 1935 to 1946, a period known as the swing era. The verb “to swing” is also used as a term of praise for playing that has a strong groove or drive. Notable musicians of the swing era include Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Woody Herman, and Artie Shaw.
