Lessons 5a: Swing 1 Fletcher Henderson a) Henderson was a pioneer in the emerging jazz style that would come to be known as swing. b) Charts , as they are called—provided the model for most of the bands that would come to prominence in the latter half of the 1930s. i. Reeds (reed section): alto, tenor, and baritone saxophones, and clarinet ii. Brass (brass section): trumpets and trombones iii. Rhythm (rhythm section): piano, guitar, double bass, and drums c) Henderson would pit the reeds against the brass in a call-and-response that later became a hallmark of the big band style. 2 Don Redman a) Chord substitutions: chord substitutions —that is, replacing one or more of the chords in a progression with other, different chords, thereby altering the original harmonic flavor of the progression. “Ellington Effect” : Ellington plays the piano, but his real instrument is his band. Each member of his band is to him a distinctive tone color and set of emotions, which he mixes with others equally distinctive to produce a third thing, which I like to call the “Ellington Effect.”
