Swing evolved from ragtime and Dixieland to become the premier popular music of the thirties and forties. At this time, North America was still recovering from the Depression, and people were ready to dance. With its focus and impact on dancing and socializing, this new music caught the imagination of the music-loving public and set their feet a-tapping and their ears a-ringing. From Jelly Roll Morton and Louis Armstrong to Billie Holiday and Lester Young, Swing Kings presents the evolution and history of Swing music from its beginnings in New Orleans to the transition to bebop.
