Swingin' Jazz Mandolin features songs arranged in a fun and lively way with a strum-and-sing approach. The chords are simple, yet entirely appropriate to the jazz-age style of the '20s and '30s -- the era of the great mandolin orchestras before the popularity of the guitar. We've also included classic intros, endings, and turnarounds that will make you sound like an authentic early jazzer.
