The Swinging Lou Haskins Orchestra has a very authentic Big Band Swing Era Sound, and has recorded most of the old standards, plus newer Swing Style Tunes.
Since the Swing Music Era has never really stopped, there are hundreds of tunes that I have recorded including some that were not written and/or arranged until the twenty-first century. In some recordings I have edited or created new arrangements. In others I have recorded the "original" arrangements the way the author intended them to be. A great number of my recordings are of fabulous Swing Tunes that were not "popularized" by the disc jockies, but are in many ways better than some that were big hits.
I am a drummer band leader playing in support of the other great instruments, such as the Reeds; Trumpets; Trombones; Stand Up Double Bass Violin. Guitar; and Piano.
When a drummer plays to enhance the other instruments....You don't hear a lot of crashing and banging.
TAKE SOME TIME TO LISTEN to this style of music. I am sure that you will discover it to be Elegant, Swinging, Smooth, And Romantic.
This is the type of music that Cheers you up....Sets A Romantic Mood....Or otherwise MAKES YOUR DAY.
KEEP SWINGING: Lou Haskins
