Programme note

Part of On Track, UYMP's Education Volume for Key Stage 4.

This little swing number for two instruments is inspired by a wonderful evening listening to jazz and blues at Long John’s Restaurant in Copenhagen. The performers - all in their eighties - were playing and singing in a really relaxed and ‘cool’ way. So, ‘Swing Slow’ is a hazy memory of a swinging night!
