Different styles of jazz crystallised in 1930s New York, alternative music that was searching for its own place. Radio Stations, recording studios, night clubs and dance halls were irresistible focal points for jazz musicians, as the recently created MoMA was for avant-garde artists. Louis Armstrong, Charlie Parker and Duke Ellington all arrived, after building their careers in Chicago; swing came to heat up the dance floors from New Orleans; the Apollo Theater witnessed the debut of Ella Fitzgerald and the orchestras of Chick Webb and Benny Goodman won fame on the dance floors of the Savoy. Jazz and its styles took shape in New York.

  1. Swing Machine OrchestraSwing Machine OrchestraEs la primera orquesta de cuerdas swing. Una propuesta única, genuina y alocada con doce músicos y bailarines de diferentes procedencias – Cuba, Honduras, Argentina y España - para bailar al ritmo frenético de los años 30. La orquesta realiza un recorrido a través de la época dorada del swing interpretando arreglos de las grandes formaciones de Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Louis Prima, Artie Shaw, Chick Webb, ragtimes de Scott Joplin y diferentes adaptaciones realizadas especialmente para esta orquesta única en Europa. La original formación consta de seis violines, dos violas, dos violonchelos, contrabajo, batería y baile claqué. Una idea original de los violinistas Raúl Márquez y Suso Moreno. Paseando el Swing es el último espectáculo que la orquesta acaba de presentar, una propuesta diferente con la que esta formación se acerca al público para crear una gran pista de baile y moverse al ritmo trepidante del swing años 30.
