Episode 293: Big Band/Brass Band Jazz
Right around 1920, The world of band music had a collision. Big Band Jazz, and British style Brass Bands were at a crossroads, two emerging styles that loved the new style of music. And if you’ve heard the phrase, “close enough for jazz” you’re in for a surprise because the precision of the British style brass band is all about accuracy and swing is all about a relaxed feel. That makes for all of the potential of a musical train wreck.
