Film information

Story: This music documentary uses archive footage and interviews to trace the evolution of 'big band' swing. By the 1930s swing had reached its height of popularity through artists such as Frankie Manning and Benny Goodman, but following World War Two the movement was superseded by rock 'n' roll. However, the disco movement of the Seventies helped kick-start a swing revival, and today, asisted by its use in movies such as 'Swing Kids', 'Malcolm X' and 'Swingers' and the best efforts of chart-topping bands such as the Brian Setzer Orchestra and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, swing is more popular than it has been since its heyday.

Subject: Frankie Manning, Benny Goodman, Brian Setzer Orchestra, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy
