Big Band


Big Band refers to a jazz group of ten or more musicians, usually featuring at least three trumpets, two or more trombones, four or more saxophones, and a "rhythm section" of accompanists playing some combination of piano, guitar, bass, and drums. "Big band music" as a concept for music fans is identified most with the swing era, although there were large, jazz-oriented dance bands before the swing era of the 1930s and '40s.

You seem so young in your picture to have such extensive knowledge of music from this era. What's the backstory for such a marvelous mix?

@ I found spotify's list of all the genres that they sort music by-- there's like around 900 different genres listed. (http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=psnjFY3R2itsqjinSs9hkZw) I'm trying to make a mix for each of these different genres, so I do research, go through YouTube, find bands and songs for each genre and make the mix. It's really opening me up to the world beyond just simple top 40 radio station music.
