About Big Band

A little bit jazz, a little bit swing. Combining brass and woodwinds, vocals and smooth lyrical melodies, big band music began in the mid-1920s and continued in popularity for decades. In fact, this music always has strong following regardless of the year. The catchy rhythms, creative instrumentation, and some of the most popular bands and bandleaders were Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Ted Heath, Tommy Dorsey, and Glenn Miller. Many solo artists came out of the big band era like Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, and Billie Holliday. Some of today’s popular artists make covers of these well-loved tunes but the originals are still always the classics. eBay has an excellent selection of band CDs. Top-rated Sellers on eBay occasionally offer new and used CDs with free postage and packaging.
