String Swing

String Swing is a Copenhagen based jazz group with a music style based on solid gypsy swing and a vast load of original material. String Swing’s main attraction is singer Alice Carreri, who joined the band only two years ago. Alice is featured on String Swing’s latest album “Waiting For the Good Times” - and her no nonsense interpretation of Bob Dylan’s “Things Have Changed” is destined to become a classic.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
