Swingtet: Jazz Music.
During the thirties, forties and fifties of the last century big bands produced lots of hits. Whilst the popular big bands gradually disappeared, their music remained beloved till now. The repertoire of Dr. John’s Swingtet, founded in 2005, is an anthology of this genre.
Jack Coenen arranged the pieces for a three-headed wind section (clarinet, alt sax and trombone) and rhythm section (guitar, string bass and drums) completely in style. This enables the band to let the unforgettable melodies revive, however with an own, characteristic sound.
