The difference between Swing and Bebop


Recommended Posts

My buddy, who's dad used to sit in on drums with Tommy Dorsey  and was in charge of Oklahoma Univ music Dept for years.  My buddy Rick is a bassoonist and drummer.  He was the drum major at my school when I was there too.  We constantly share new music or older stuff with background and history.  He just sent me this one and I had to share.  He hopes you all enjoy this.  I haven't even seen the whole thing yet, but I have to leave for the day and wanted to post before I forgot.

Dixieland (Louis Armstrong) -> Swing (Fletcher Henderson) -> Bebop (Charlie Parker)

Yup, that sounds about right to me.

I love the first two, but the last is one of my least favorite.
