Hawaiian Big Band Swing

In our last show, we explored the influence of the Gypsy jazz guitarist genius, “Django” Reinhardt, on Hawaiian music.
Hawaiian combos on the mainland began arranging their Hawaiian music to that Django swing.
There was no doubt that swing was king in the 1930s, and Hawaiian big bands soon began filling the finest ballrooms across the nation with Hawaiian big band swing music.
So we’ll take the next logical step in our Hawaiian swing adventure, and add the horns section.
Today, we’ll share some of the rarest recordings made by Hawaiian swing big bands in the late 1930s.
