2022 IHTSB January 30 Artie Shaw, Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington...

IHTSB Jan 30, 2022 Big Bands
Today’s show showcases big bands from the 1930s and 1940s, with orchestras from the US and the UK. We hear US bands from the Swing Era, like Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw. Featured too are orchestras led by Count Basie and Duke Ellington that started out in the early days and continued producing marvellous jazz for decades. And we will also hear some excellent bands from the 1940s like those of Billy Butterfield and Woody Herman. Our British counterparts bring us recordings mostly in the dance band style that was so popular there in the 1930s, including those of Ambrose, Jack Hylton and Geraldo. All our performers today were excellent orchestras with immensely talented musicians, and together with some lovely vocalists they were a major influence on jazz and popular music both in their time and over future decades.
