Product Description:

In this installment in the ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE documentary series, filmmakers examine the advent of swing music, a style that spanned racial borders and had an impact on the evolution of rock. Artists featured in concert footage and interviews include Benny Goodman, Bud Freeman, and more.

Product Description:

For this volume we turn our attention the musical genre known as swing. For most of its history, popular music has rarely been that which most people like. Jazz, for instance, has always been a minority interest. But in the era which was dominated by swing, the music and its popularity were equally matched. White musicians became bored with the asinine popular music they were expected to play, music pumped out by Tin Pan Alley, and tried to emulate the style and freedom of their black counterparts. Most of them were too intelligent as musicians to indulge in mere imitation. What they created was the first white music based on black music which was not stolen from black music. The episode includes interviews and performances from some of the main characters of the genre including Art Tatum, Cab Calloway, Harry James, Tommy Dorsey, Woody Herman and Frank Sinatra..
