What is Swing?

Swing is a jazz style created at the end of 1920s in New York. It was danced a lot in dance clubs in New York’s Harlem and gradually it started turning into the swing dance. Swing owes its popularity to Benny Goodman’s big band. He took it from New York to the other coat, Los Angeles.
