Bio

Swing to jazz is a collection of original Jazz Guitar instrumentals written in the style of the music from the 1930s, 40s and 50s.
In order to try and recreate an authenic sound every track has been recorded live with a recorder placed in front of the amp.
The music of the 1930s 40s and 50s is infectious from the sound of the big bands to the guitar genius of Charlie Christian and Les Paul.
I first became in the swing style era of music through listening to the Brian Setzer Orchestra. This in turn led me to the music of Charlie Christian, Les Paul, Django Reinhardt and Louis Jordan to name a few, from then on I was hooked on the music from a golden age.
