At the core of jazz is a diverse collection of polyrhythms. In many of the classic sounds, this manifests as an infectious case of swing. Whether the context is a trio, a large ensemble, or somewhere in between, the power of swing to lay down a deep groove that inevitably draws out even the most stoic listener is self evident. In this hour we will explore such musical magic carpet rides with some great examples of the swingin' incredibles.
