    HISTORY OF THE BIG BAND

    Big bands originated during the early 1910s and dominated jazz in the early 1940s when swing was most popular. A Big Band is characterized as an ensemble that usually consists of ten or more musicians with four sections including saxophones, trumpets, trombones, and a rhythm section. These big bands would typically perform with a lead singer which included influential artists such as Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder & Michael Buble.
