„The Swingtones“ emerged from the swing and jazz scene in Freiburg: Full-blooded Lindyhoppers joined forces with luminaries of Freiburg’s jazz sessions and have been enriching Freiburg’s dance parties with live music ever since. Some of the musicians have been playing together since 2018, in the current composition they have been playing since the summer of 2021. The „Swingtones“ play for you in the classic small group swing sextet formation (double bass, drums, guitar, piano, trumpet and saxophone) the most popular swing standards by Duke Ellington, Billy Strayhorn, Fats Waller, Benny Goodman, Lionel Hampton, Chick Webb & Co. in the style of the 30s and 40s and get your feet movin‘!
Linda Kyei Combo
Linda Kyei presents her Swing Combo this evening, with whom she has perfected the warm, crackling, intense and always relaxed jazzy sound of the good old days. They are joined by Andrew Andrews of „The Hot Jazz Rewinders“ on drums and the award-winning Sascha Kommer (among others, Prince of Hohenzollern Jazz Young Talent Award) on piano. Mr. Netz on saxophone and clarinet and Sir Holley on double bass complete the combo.
