    I have always played it the way the conductor wanted it.
    I prefer swing, but realize that you may have to teach the WHOLE orchestra how to :lol:

    On Phil Smith's Excerpts CD, he has great examples of Swing and Charleston feel.

    Right, to get string players to swing...

    The eternal dilemma.

    :roll:
