Swing on the Square takes its name from the picturesque Carré St. Louis (Square) in Montreal’s Plateau neighborhood. Like many other local musicians, they often meet there to jam. These musical rendezvous at this green oasis in the city center always draws large crowds of spectators and passersby. The group quickly realized the magical chemistry between clarinet and gypsy guitar. People applaud and children dance to the frenetic strumming of guitars punctuated by mellow tones from the clarinet. Their recording pays homage to the jazz manouche tradition and freely moves through American roots music, traditional jazz, and pop. Their performance is guaranteed to make you smile.
