But the album has some early classic recordings. Among the more exciting are Charlie Barnet's 1944 hit "Skyliner" and Count Basie's 1939 "One O' Clock Jump. Swing compiles very tasty tidbits from the past, but with only 29 minutes, it is a small taste indeed.
The cut right after Basie is an Ink Spots hit, "If I Didn't Care," which doesn't relate to the album's subtitle, Best of the Big Bands. Irrespective of what one thinks of them musically, no other group survived so long delivering each song exactly the same way. The tenor (for years, Bill Kenny) opening up, then the deep bass part (also for years, Orville "Hoppy" Jones), with the tenor coming back to close. Other vocal contributions are made by Billie Holiday represented with Sy Oliver's arrangement of "Now or Never," the Mills Brothers and the.
It later evolved into the various different sub-genres of what is now called simply "rock". This list is a collection of the top ten rock bands of all time. This includes bands that can be categorized as rock and roll, hard rock, southern rock, metal, punk and just about any other genre that has evolved from 50's rock and roll. Many great great bands are biting at the doorstep of the big 5. Rush, Queen, U2 and Metallica, Black Sabbath to name a few. I love these lists and they hold huge interest and although you will never get it just right for everyone they do make for great talk. Pink Floyd deserves number 1 position, and the n. is Led Zeppelin - CaptainNemo. Best progressive rock band ever. Dark Side of the Moon is the greatest album ever, and that includes Sgt. Peppers (which does have the most innovative use of the studio ever, but the songs themselves aren't as good as on revolver). Dude I agree with you 100 %.
A big band is a type of musical ensemble that usually consists of ten or more musicians with four sections: saxophones, trumpets, trombones, and a rhythm section. Big bands originated during the early 1910s and dominated jazz in the early 1940s when swing was most popular. The term "big band" is also used to describe a genre of music. One problem with this usage is that it overlooks the variety of music played by these bands.
The big band phenomena also took jazz into new venues, such as Carnegie Hall, which had previously been a preserve of classical music. And ballrooms across America were the hotbeds of new dance crazes such as the jitterbug and the jive. Swing bands were big business, and if you found the right song you could have a million-seller on your hands. Tommy Dorsey (trombone and trumpet) had a string of hits, including ‘Marie’ in 1937, while brother Jimmy (trumpet and clarinet) had his own runaway winners, including ‘Amapola’. Led by two of the most charismatic jazz bandleaders, Basie and Ellington’s bands produced some of the best and most exciting jazz that had ever been made, and Basie’s superb driving rhythm section seemed to have an almost telepathic understanding, improvising on tunes which did not always have written arrangements.
