The track list of Kings of Swing Opus 2 is not just a collection of charming melodies - it's a musical guide through the Golden Era of Swing, a period that has hundreds of works, legendary performances, recordings and attractive arrangements to draw on. The SWR Big Band, however, has its own idea of how to present these classics, which is why all the arrangements on this CD have been made by the band's leader, Pierre Paquette, and other members of the ensemble. This is Big Band Jazz at its finest!
