A big band is a type of musical ensemble that usually consists of ten or more musicians with four sections: saxophones, trumpets, trombones, and a rhythm section. Big bands originated during the early 1910s and dominated jazz in the early 1940s when swing was most popular. The term "big band" is also used to describe a genre of music. One problem with this usage is that it overlooks the variety of music played by these bands.

The Swingin' Big Bands. Perfect Swing: Best Swing Bands of the 20s 30s & 40s. Various Artists. Great American Big Bands of the 30s & 40s. Count Basie. The Best of the Big Bands features the music of: Glenn Miller Orchestra; Duke Ellington; Benny Goodman Orchestra; Count Baise and Woodie Herman.

Many great great bands are biting at the doorstep of the big 5. Rush, Queen, U2 and Metallica, Black Sabbath to name a few. I love these lists and they hold huge interest and although you will never get it just right for everyone they do make for great talk. Pink Floyd deserves number 1 position, and the n. is Led Zeppelin - CaptainNemo. AC/Dc back in black album has sold more than 49 million copies, and is the second highest album sold WORLDWIDE! Is there any rock band in the world that can beat this EPICNESS! I disagree. All the great rock bands of the 60's and 70's are timeless. Can you say that about today's so called music? NO!

Big band music" as a concept for music fans is identified most with the swing era, although there were large, jazz-oriented dance bands before the swing era of the 1930s and '40s, and large jazz-oriented concert bands after the swing era. Classification difficulties occur when stores shelve recordings by all large jazz ensembles as though it were a single style, despite the shifting harmonic and rhythmic approaches employed by new ensembles of similar instrumentation that have formed since the swing era. By lumping the music of all large jazz bands together, marketers overlook.

Ultimately, we found ourselves pulled toward records that embodied punk’s spirit, and even stretched it a little. Their first album explored obsessions like robotics, Ronald McDonald and cannibalistic apes, making devolution feel like the future.
