Swing Fever has been performing jazz of the 1930s and 1940s for thirty-three years. The band has toured and recorded with renowned musicians, including Count Basie, Duke Ellington, trumpeter Clark Terry, clarinetist Buddy DeFranco and vibraphonist Terry Gibbs.|
They have released four CDs, two of them with Duke Ellington. Swing Fever is dedicated to the music of the Swing Era, playing it as critic Phil Elwood said, as though the numbers are on todays Hit Parade. The band treats Swing Era music as a living breathing form, to which the players bring fresh excitement, new arrangements and unusual instrumentation. Clever, fun, romantic, moody, witty here is wonderful, classic music presented in its full emotional range. As Jazz Now said, Swing Fever keeps its music alive without turning it into a museum piece. If this is the bands mission, it is a successful one, as demonstrated by the bands notable longevity and popularity.
