Jazz Classics Concert: Art Music for Dancing

For this performance, the CSU Jazz Ensembles, conducted by Wil Swindler and Shilo Stroman, explore the enjoyable intersection of big band concert music and the infectious swing of the "dance band" tradition. Big band jazz as popular music from the 1930s and 40s grew out of the functional role of the music to support dancers, be they performers or social dancers. The rhythmic interest that runs through the history of jazz has never diminished, even as the musical content developed into art music. “There are many great examples of big band music from the 1950s and 60s that are undeniably dance-able and undoubtedly musically inspired,” says Swindler. “Let's all get together and celebrate the rhythmic tradition and musical interest of big band jazz!”
