Biography

The Dutch Swing College Band started out as an amateur-college combo on liberation day (1945, may 5th) and through the years it has grown into a worldfamous jazz ensemble that has toured all five continents to much acclaim. The DSC played a prominent role during the post-war period. At the time many youngsters fell under the spell of the original Amerian music: jazz. The band, which has existed for more than sixty years, has given concerts all over the world and the sounds have been registered on practically all types of sound recordings since 1945. The band also appeared frequently on TV and in film productions. Through the years many big names in jazz music were backed by the DSC, from Sidney Bechet, Joe Venuti and Rita Reys to Teddy Wilson.

    My dad thought it was impossible to find his favorite music on the internet, because it was too old. When I showed him that it was even on spotify he went nuts, and now he finally sees all the good things the internet can bring. Great music!!

    They were influential for their time. I must have had a couple of their records in the first dozen I bought in the 1950s. Their sound stands up as clean and pleasent. Seems to lack a bit of bite, but this was one of the bands which introduced a generation to the Trad Jazz classics.
