"Two thirds rhythm and one thrid soul." That's how Fats Waller defined the uniquely American form of popular music and dance known as swing. Swing! celebrated this remarkable diversiy to the beat of the most exhilarating songs of the period, including "It Don't Mean a Thing," "In the Mood," and "Cry Me a River" just to name a few. This enthralling song0and-dance show makes it abundantly clear, swing was never a time or place- it has always been a state of mind!
