Understanding the relationship between American and European musicians at the time of the arrival and early development of the Jazz music in Europe (1925-1940), this is the ambition of the “Euro Swing” albums series. The first CD was dedicated to the works of the European pioneer jazzmen. This time Pierre-Antoine Badaroux and the Umlaut Big Band wonder how did the American musicians, composers, arrangers actually influenced Europeans musicians. Through an exploration on the jazz industry during this period, this album explores this complex, innovating and under-documented issue… until now! Enjoy!

“Euro Swing Vol.2” was awarded the “prix Coup de cœur Jazz” by the prestigious Académie Charles Cros in November 2016.
