the origins of
SWING THING has been in the making since Fred first interviewed Helen Forrest back in 1945.
Since then he has done hundreds of interviews with the singers, song-writers, sidemen band leaders and arrangers directly involved in the ongoing evolution of that uniquely American musical idiom including it’s many off-shoots and derivatives that we now call Swing. These remarkable shows span the entire gamut of early American music, which includes Swing, early Jazz, and Dixieland.
