The sound of swing is as popular today as it has ever been – whether it’s the classic sounds of yesteryear from legendary crooners, band leaders and musicians such as Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Dean Martin, Glenn Miller and Louis Armstrong, or more recent singers such as Harry Connick Jr or Michael Bublé.
Even more modern-day singers such as Rod Stewart, Christina Aguilera and Robbie Williams have got in on the act too by dipping into the Great American Songbook.
