What is this thing called Swing?
Well it don't mean a thing if it ain't got that Swing!
Swing is a bit more than just a form of music; the music of self expression but most of all it is dance music. And on the dance floor anyone should be free to get up and let themselves go.
"I just think swing is a matter of some good things put together that you can really pat your foot by. I can’t define it beyond that"
- Count Basie
"We’re dancing to the beat, it was the beat, everything in life got a beat and that was what Swing was. You couldn’t just listen to the music and not dance to it"
- Norma Miller
