Savannah Music Festival: Swing Time Part One

Airs Thursday, June 5, 2014. The concept of a jazz party goes back to the origins of the music, since the very function of jazz was often connected to dancing. More recently however, the term jazz party has been used to describe a multi-day gathering of musicians and audiences in which the common bond is the creation of a good time atmosphere where it's all about swinging the bandstand. In this episode, we listen to Bucky Pizzarelli, Ken Peplowski, Howard Alden, and Wycliffe Gordon, among others, performing some of the classics that helped define what we know today as "swing."
