Swing Out Sister - Daring jazz

Swing Out Sister name origins - swing_out_sister-film-1945It's not so strange that the band from Manchester had itself named after a jazz film: apart from sophisti-pop the Englishmen also play smooth jazz.

Regarding that film: Swing Out Sister is a musical comedy directed by Edward C. Lilley that premiered in cinemas in 1945. Brief summary: the two leading actors go to work as jazz musicians anonymously, without telling it to their rather snobbish families. Complications abound of course.

Active: 1985-heden, GBR
