Artists by Musical Genre

Swing started out as a kind of dance music in the 1920s. Among its most popular headliners were Duke Ellington and Benny Goodman. While various musical eras have come and gone, the genre has survived and kept a core of loyal fans. Still very much alive, big bands like the Count Basie and Duke Ellington orchestras offer solid proof of swing's enduring popularity.
