2FM077 Swing Band Underscores

Posted on May 11, 2022

2FM077 Swing Band Underscores is a fun and upbeat jazz album written by Joseph Rodwell and Justin Swadling. Featuring a reduced big-band ensemble comprising piano, bass, drums and a six-piece horn section, tracks are designed to sit easily under dialogue. The album spans various eras and genres, including dixieland ("Easy Breezy", "Dixie Fever"), classic swing ("Up In Lights"), bossa nova ("Evening Bossa") and jazz waltz ("Riverside Waltz"). The slick, metropolitan sounds on this album are perfect for reality TV, late night TV and talk shows. Rhythm section versions are available for all tracks, giving an alternative jazz trio texture for soft underscores. 60-second, 30-second and sting cutdowns are also available for easy tailoring to picture.
