James Langton is internationally renowned as a re-creator of the Big Band Swing sound. His bands, their concerts and the recordings he produces (both live and in studio,) cover works from the jazz and dance bands of the early 1930s to the classic Capitol recordings of the 1950s. His various orchestras have played arrangements recreated from the original scores and also from James’ own transcriptions from recordings.
James Langton continues to perform with his Swing Orchestras, as well as researching and writing on the Swing Era and its music. He has collaborated often, researching, writing commissioned music, performing concerts and special events and writing articles and essays. He brings not only his knowledge and experience but also passion, commitment and perfectionism to each project.
