A BRIEF HISTORY OF SWING
90 years and counting: The verb ‘to swing’ is used as a term of praise for a style of musical performance that has a strong rhythmic ‘groove’ or drive. Swing music, also know as ‘Swing Jazz’ or simply ‘Swing’, is a form of jazz music that developed in the late 1920’s & early 1930’s becoming a distinctive style by 1935 in the United States and later across the world. Early swing stars included Louis Armstrong, Benny Goodman, Cab Callaway & Duke Ellington followed by the ‘Big Band’ swing era of Glenn Miller, then later singers like Frank Sinatra, & Peggy Lee continued the ‘Swing Thing’.
By the early 1990’s swing samples & influences were becoming popular and were beginning to appear on ‘Acid Jazz’, ‘Nu- Jazz’ & ‘Lounge’ tracks. In 2004 Parov Stelar released the first ‘Electro Swing’ on his own label, triggering a boom of ‘Electro Swing’ dj’s, producers & bands like ‘Caravan Palace’. Between 2008- 2010 Wagram (France), Freshly Squeezed Music (UK) & other labels associated with ‘Electro Swing’ released a succession of very popular compilations, including tracks from some of the freshest & brightest talent. 2009 - 2010 saw the first ‘Electro Swing Clubs’ opening in London, Paris, Zurich, Utrecht & Antwerp with further clubs opening in USA, Canada & Asia as a new ‘Swing Generation’ was born.
