This two-hour documentary tribute to swing music traces the history of the jazz-based musical style from its birth during the 1920s through to the late-20th century swing revival. The program features the music of such classic performers of the genre as Count Basie, Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, and Duke Ellington, as well as successful acts from the 1990s, such as Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and the Brian Setzer Orchestra.
