Swing Out! – the fourth album by the Eyal Vilner Big Band, marks an important development in the evolution of this fantastic group comprised of some of New York City’s finest musicians; one that is the direct result of the band’s interaction with the swing dance community.
Vilner says, “In the past few years, we’ve started playing more and more for swing dancers. This has really influenced the way I play and write music. I fell in love with the dance and have become really passionate about the connection between musicians and dancers in the swing world. This exchange between dance and music, movement and sound, feels so new and refreshing – yet so natural and familiar. It feels like we’re bringing it back to where jazz and swing dancing grew up and developed together, influenced and inspired by one another. It’s like we’re bringing it back home.”
