(Loyiso Bala)

It’s been two years in the making but Well Swung, the debut album by Swing City, is out! The band, which includes Drakensberg Boys Choir alumnus Loyiso Bala, relives the timeless era of swing music with a bit of a modern twist.

To celebrate this accomplishment, the trio with their seven-piece jazz band will host a public launch at one of Johannesburg’s favourite live music venues, Katzy’s Jazz Club on November 7.

The album features jazz and swing standards, originals and clever remakes of current hits, as well as the best in local talent, including L’Loyd Cele, ChianoSky, Mariechan and Shoowop Shop.
