Jazz: Swing: The Velocity of Celebration
Swing: The Velocity of Celebration
Season 1  |  Episode 6  |  Smooth/Arts  |  November 21, 2018

As the 1930s come to a close, Swingmania is still going strong, but some fans are saying success has made the music too predictable. Their ears are tuned to a new sound - pulsing, stomping, suffused with the blues. It's the Kansas City sound of Count Basie's band and it quickly reignites the spirit of Swing.
