The Dutch Swing College Band, the Netherlands’ leading and most well-known jazz orchestra, continues to guarantee traditional jazz music performances on an international level. The swinging orchestra, founded on May 5, 1945, is widely regarded as the calling card of Dutch Jazz and has thus far released more than 150 albums. The line-up has of course changed several times throughout the years, making the Dutch Swing College Band more than just a group of professional musicians. The term “institution” is definitely more applicable here. With fresh new arrangements reflecting the unmistakable Dutch Swing College sound and played by a rejuvenated orchestra, today’s Dutch Swing College Band is more energetic than ever before.
