Okay what is the name of the kind of swing music where the band does call and response with the singer? Not the backup singers. The horn section. [more inside]
What's this famous jazz/big band/swing dancing song? [more inside]
Big band music is like the speed metal of jazz. But I'm more into the stripped down sound of "normal" jazz bands, that would have maybe one trumpet, one clarinet, etc...
Could anyone recommend some intense big band music that's crammed into a "little band" format?
