    it's funny that you will find various definitions of SWING ---- and not all are related to the definition of JAZZ!!! --- just saying they melted the two into the same definition just to help the modern Jazz pro feel like there is some realistic history to the convergence of legitimate BIG BAND, that evolved into JAZZ!!! --- or as the JAZZ people say -- JAZZ evolved into all other types of music!!!!!


    "The period between 1935 and 1946 is when big band swing music reached its peak and was the most popular music in America. This period is known as the Swing Era. With the wider acceptance of swing music around 1935, larger mainstream bands began to embrace this style of music.[citation needed] Up until the swing era, Jazz had been taken in high regard by the most serious musicians around the world, including classical composers like Stravinsky; swing on the contrary, with its "dance craze", ended being regarded as a degeneration towards light entertainment, more of an industry to sell records to the masses than a form of art. Some musicians, after failing at serious music, switched to swing."
