Presented by Henry Reed and his
Orchestra with Brent Wood
Farewell to Swing
In this series it has been sought to explain swing jazz. The main elements of swing have, we hope, been covered in the seven preceding instalments : Let's Go, The Saxophone Speaks, Spotlight on Rhythm, The Brass Talks, Dots and Dixie, Swinging the Blues, and ' Jam Session'.
With that fairly comprehensive schedule completed, Henry Reed and his Orchestra propose to abandon exposition in this final programme and concentrate solely upon swinging.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
