The Solomon Douglas Swingtet

The Solomon Douglas Swingtet is a ten-piece dance band whose repertoire is rooted in that of the Basie band (One O'Clock Jump, Jive at Five, Splanky, Shorty George, Shiny Stockings) and that of the Ellington band (Cottontail, "C" Jam Blues, Mood Indigo, Take The "A" Train), with other big-band standards and classic jazz tunes thrown in as well. The band makes frequent appearances at the Century Ballroom (Seattle, WA) and at the Glen Echo Spanish Ballroom (Washington, DC), and plays at Lindy Hop, Blues, and Balboa dance events all over North America. The Solomon Douglas Swingtet released its first CD, "Swingmatism," in November, 2006 and its second CD, "Live at the Legion," in June, 2009.
