The big band revival of a few years ago introduced a new audience of listeners to 40s-style swing music. Scat Cat is an opportunity for young bands to experience the fun and energy of this music. It features limited ranges and rhythms, with no solo resp
Strive for good communication, especially in the rhythm section, to produce a driving, energetic feel with solid, unwavering time. While there are many slurs and articulations provided to help young players assimilate the style, there is no replacement for listening to accomplished groups performing this type of music. Benny Goodman's band featuring Gene Krupa on drums is a good place to start, but revival bands such as Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Cherry Poppin' Daddies will also provide valuable performance clues.
